How we’re different
Redemptions Paws (RP) is a Canadian registered charity that dives in to help and re-home at-risk dogs affected by natural disasters and climate change. We are foster-based, shelter free rescue and and provide our rescue dogs loving temporary care while working endlessly to find them their fur-ever homes through a careful screening process.
Our dogs live in a loving home environment while we get to know them and find their forever homes!
No Dog is Hopeless
We have a special affinity for dogs with medical and physical needs, with a particular adoration for dogs who have visual and hearing impairments.
Climate Change & Natural Disasters
We are the only dog rescue in the world focused on the impacts of climate change and natural disasters on homeless dogs.
Inclusivity & Diversity
Redemption Paws is a safe space for volunteers and adopters, regardless of their age, culture, disabilities, ethnic origin, gender, gender identity, marital status, nationality, race, religion, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status.
Help us help dogs
We couldn’t be saving as many dogs without our amazing volunteers. From transport to adoption, we’re always welcoming help! Whether you’re a vet tech, a driver, a good administrator or a dog lover, get in touch and help us save dogs.
What Our Adopters Are Saying
Brent & Guillermo
“We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect match when we were lucky enough to adopt Rex. Right from the beginning, Rex adjusted into our family like he had always been there. The description provided from both RP and his foster family was spot on – which I think is what made the transition so smooth. We knew what to expect and he was exactly what we were looking for! The adoption process itself was pretty quick but also thorough (which goes to show they really do make sure the rescue pup is going to be happy in his forever home). We are forever grateful for RP for saving Rex’s life and bringing him into ours. He’s brought us endless entertainment, laughs, and kisses. He definitely keeps us busy, but it’s more than worth it!”
Alaina and Laurence
“The moment we brought The Duchess in to our home as a foster we knew she was where she belonged. We could never thank Redemption Paws enough for bringing this perfect little snuggle bug in to our lives and for continuing to help other dogs like her that deserve all the love in the world! We’ve felt so much joy and support from the RP community that we continue to engage with other volunteers and adopters months after the adoption process was complete. I promise, you won’t regret joining the ranks of our Happy Tails!”
“Jade was my 7th foster with Redemption Paws so the adoption experience itself was easy, just fill up the adoption form, the adoption fees… The rest had already been done before I became foster. The one thing I love about Redemption Paws is the efforts made to find the best family for the pups.All the forms, phone calls, home visits, meet and greet, all is done to ensure as much as possible a perfect match between adopters and dogs.”
