Our Story

We are so much more than a dog rescue!  We are a community of incredible volunteers with one goal in mind: To help dogs in need find  loving, forever homes.

We are moms and dads, sisters and daughters, sons and brothers from all walks of life. We have come together to help the dogs that need us most.  Those on death row, those lost, those hungry, those broken hearted.

We will work and work and work until we find a family for each one of them. We will not stop until each one of our dogs has the one thing they wish for more than anything else: the safety of a home and the love of a family. We are foster based. Each foster we have allows us to save one more dog.

Niagara Dog Rescue was established in March of 2015.  Since then, we have found homes  NDR has saved and placed into loving homes over 7,000 dogs! It all started with 2 volunteers and today we have 300 here in Canada and the USA, and a number of partnerships overseas.

We help dogs from the reserves in Northern Manitoba and Ontario, from the USA, Mexico, Korea, Iran, Kuwait, Bahrain,  Antigua, Nepal, and some other places as we are able to.

Our dogs are ALIVE today because we cared and we worked and we cried and we pleaded and we drove and we checked and we advocated and we fought and we begged and, in the end, we made this possible without any funding or paid staff. With no shelter or corporate sponsors. With nothing but the will of our amazing volunteers  working together to help save the lives of the dogs we can help.

We have made a difference with the help of incredible rescue partners. Our dogs need each one of them and they need YOU! 

They need your support in any way you can help:  Adopt, Foster, Support, Donate, Spread the word!
