As part of our service to the community, we try to help all paws in different areas, by supporting local pet rescue efforts and initiatives. This section of our website focuses on highlighting organizations that do work on animal rescue, fostering and adoption anywhere in Ontario and Canada. We feel it’s important to spotlight their unique services, along with the positive impact they are making in the local pet community. Together, we are creating a village that helps animals in need; every step and contribution for the community counts. Here, you’ll be able to learn more about the great work local rescues are doing, and explore ways you can support them, through:
Please note: LocalPaws introduces rescue organizations as a resource only. We do not screen individual groups; nor are we involved in the rescue, adoption, or fostering process.

Safe Paws Animal Rescue of Ontario was founded in July of 2022 and is located in Guelph, Ontario. We primarily help dogs and cats but have assisted with a few rabbits in need of rehoming and veterinary care. Our mission is to help Ontario’s stray dog overpopulation in the north and to help alleviate the overcrowding in shelters.
Tango’s Lead Canine Rescue and Sanctuary was founded in 2021 in honour of Tango, the best “bad” dog there ever was. As a 100% volunteer-run organization based in Guelph, Ontario, we strive to help dogs with medical conditions or undesirable behaviour that shelters may not have the resources to manage.
Urban Tails Animal Rescue is a foster-based, animal rescue that is dedicated to helping vulnerable animals in need and the communities they come from. We rescue both dogs and cats of all ages, breeds, and sizes, including special needs, senior and palliative care cases in Toronto, across Canada and with our rescue partners globally.
