Etobicoke, ON | Servicing Southern Ontario
Adopt-A-Dog/Save-A-Life is a registered charitable organization dedicated to saving abandoned dogs and placing them in loving and caring homes in Toronto and Southern Ontario, Canada.
This Ontario all breed dog rescue is committed to saving dogs of all ages who are at risk of being put down for lack of a loving home. Most of their rescues are purchased from dog pounds where they have been slated for death or selected to be sent to medical research laboratories.
Once a dog has come under their care, the rescue provides veterinarian and foster care indefinitely until a suitable home can be found. The goal is that every dog is eventually matched with just the right care giver.
About the Rescue
Grace Hall founded Adopt-A-Dog/Save-A-Life in 1980. In 1990 Grace was awarded the Ontario Medal for Good Citizenship. For the past 20 years, Grace and a handful of volunteers have worked relentlessly to save and place over 6,100 dogs.
Please note, rescue dogs are sheltered in foster homes. This dog rescue does not have a shelter to visit.

- Completed Application Form

- Reference from a Vet (if applicable)
- Reference from a neighbour or friend (name, address, phone number)

Please recognize that Adopt-A-Dog/Save-A-Life Inc. is obliged to seek the best possible match to meet the needs of each of our dogs. The rescue is located in Toronto. While they try to accommodate applicants from outside our area, home visits outside of the GTA are not always possible. In such cases they will not be able to go forward with your application.
Support This Dog Rescue
Ontario dog rescues do not receive government funding. They operate through volunteers and pay for vet bills and food out of adoption fees. The more funding they get, the more dogs they can save. Support Adopt-a-Dog/Save-a-Life today.Donate Now
