Redemption Paws: Dogs From Away program launched in March 2021 as a means to fill the gap for wanted rescue dogs in St. John’s, Newfoundland! Select dogs will be sent from Ontario to Newfoundland and met by our new St. John’s Redemption Paws team.

This is a pilot program and we are excited to expand the charity!

The foster and adoption application process will be the same as Toronto but on a smaller scale. We are very excited to offer dogs a better chance at life and giving some Canadians who want to make a difference a chance at helping dogs on the East Coast! Currently we are only accepting applications for dogs over 35 lbs.

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.
