Tiny Paws Dog Rescue

Formed in February 2007 to assist small pure and mixed breed dogs (weighing 20 pounds and under) in need, Tiny Paws Dog Rescue Canada (TPDRC) is a registered charitable organization (registered Canadian Charity Number # 82942 3920 RR0001#) comprised of volunteers who work to fill a much needed niche in the rescue community – that of rescuing stray or surrendered dogs.

We also strive to educate and raise public awareness about responsible pet ownership.Our volunteers and foster homes allow us to continue our critical work helping small dogs in need.  If you would like to join us and help make a difference in dogs’ lives, we would love to hear from you.

What We Do:Tiny Paws Logo

We work with shelters, pounds, other rescues, and private individuals to save dogs that might otherwise be euthanized and place those dogs into our private foster homes.  We provide standard veterinary care and other needed medical treatment, work on training issues and through our adoption screening process, find new forever homes for the dogs in our care.  We also educate the public about the important reasons to spay/neuter pets, the deplorable conditions found in puppy mills, the sources of pet store dogs and the need to adequately care for and train the family pet.

Why We Do What We Do:

Far too many perfectly healthy, wonderful dogs are euthanized every day because their owners do not know that dog rescues exist and can help.  For any number of reasons, an owner may need to find their dog a new home.   Also, there are many dogs that end up in shelters because they have never been adequately trained, suffer from separation anxiety or treatable health issues.  Our reward is finding a loving new home for a dog in need.


We do not have a facility. All dogs in our care are placed in private homes and may be viewed during the scheduled home visit as part of the adoption process.

Our Fundraising Endeavours:

Our rescue participates in pet related events, as well as holding our own fundraising events.
