Animal Rescue Animal Rescue Animal Rescue Animal Rescue

a non-profit CRA registered charitable organization based in Edmonton, AB, commited to providing a safe haven for Alberta's ailing, abused and abandoned dogs, no matter the distance.

Founded in 2009, we have gone through many changes including management in September 2013. We are staffed solely by volunteers, have no formal facilities, and depend upon temporary foster homes to care for the dogs we rescue.

Our vision is to provide safe haven for all of Alberta's abused, neglected, and unwanted canines. Our mission is to work with Alberta's communities to provide education and information on responsible pet ownership, helping to remove the unwanted and neglected canines, and hosting adoption events to re-home the rehabilitated canines.

Before adoption, our dogs have been to the veterinary clinic (at least once), had their vaccinations, been spayed/neutered, given a microchip, and have had the chance to live within a family atmosphere with other animals and sometimes kids. We try to expose our dogs to as many people as we can to help them gain the confidence they need. We show them beyond what many have ever seen. We give them the time to heal from their old wounds, whether they be physical or mental wounds. We aren't in a hurry to place them in homes, but when they are ready we place them with the right homes. We do not place dogs on a first come, first served basis. We want to make sure that the fit is right between the family and the dog.

We have created a family atmosphere within our group of volunteers and adoptive families. We want to be there if a problem occurs to solve it before it becomes too unmanageable and the dog needs to be returned. We host events that include all of our adoptive families and the dogs, like our annual family reunion in August. It is a very amazing event and to be able to see the dogs with their new families and how happy they all are ... priceless!

We are always welcoming new volunteers, foster homes and of course ... adoptive families to our family. To learn more on how to help us out, please visit us on Facebook or our website.
