ABOUT US

We are a foster-based, shelter free rescue

Redemption Paws is a Canadian federally registered charity that helps dogs who are affected by natural disasters, climate change, the canine overpopulation crisis, and other dire circumstances find their forever homes.

We are a foster-based organization that works with veterinarians and trainers in the community to provide these dogs with a loving and supportive environment while they await their adoptions!

Our incredible team of volunteers and staff works tirelessly behind the scenes to coordinate everything from finding foster homes, to scheduling vet appointments and procedures, to screening countless adoption applications before the perfect match is made through our process.

Founded off the back of the aftermath caused by Hurricane Harvey, Redemption Paws has rescued  and rehomed over 2000 dogs since starting our missions in September 2017.

WHY WE’RE DIFFERENT

What makes Redemptions Paws different from other rescues?

  • we are the only rescue organization in Canada that specializes in helping dogs impacted by natural disasters and climate change
  • we help ALL dogs, regardless of breed, age, or gender; mutts are limited editions and we love them
  • no dogs are 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
  • we are very familiar with the treatment of heartworm disease, and feel that heartworm-positive dogs deserve an equal chance at love and happiness! Since 2017 we have successfully treated over 100 heartworm-positive dogs!
  • we support local businesses; our behavioural specialists, boarding, and trainers are paid for their time to prepare our dogs for their lives
  • we do our own transports; we personally try to make the dogs trip as calm and pleasant as possible in temperature-controlled vans 
  • all our dogs see a vet before leaving their destination and after arriving in Canada; we take no risks when it comes to health
  • when we’re not needed at a disaster site, we help local dogs here in Canada and keep helping dogs that have been displaced, regardless of where they are from

We are foster-based, which means we do not have a physical shelter.

Please check if you are in our adoption radius before applying.

Due to the lack of history on our dogs, we can not place them in homes with children under 12 years of age.

We do not have a contact phone number as we are not a 9 to 5 shelter.

We reserve the right not to respond to applications that do not meet our adoption criteria.

We get a high volume of correspondences, please be patient!

Harassment or bullying of any kind will not be tolerated.
