ODR logo

Ottawa Dog Rescue was founded in August 2013 by a group of dedicated dog-lovers and experienced rescuers. They are an all-breed, foster-based rescue in the nation’s capital who have dedicated themselves to helping abandoned, abused and surrendered dogs find well suited forever homes within the Greater Ottawa area.  All of their rescue dogs are provided with temporary foster home care until they find them well-matched and carefully screened forever homes.

Along with rescue, they aim to educate by bringing awareness to responsible pet ownership and the importance of spay/neutering. Rescue is about saving lives, and they will do what it takes to do rescue right, because too many lives are lost due to a lack of public awareness and resources. They want to be part of the solution and will strive to make a difference one dog at a time.

The rescue is organized as an Ontario and Federal non-profit charitable corporation #1899733. Their Charitable number is 83472 7232 RR0001.

AAW – Friendly Giants Dog Rescue

This week’s AAW is Friendly Giants Dog Rescue .

 Friendly iants Logo

Friendly Giants Dog Recue is a non-profit group based in Ottawa with foster homes throughout Ontario, that was created by a network of people that became aware of the growing need to provide a safe haven and to find loving adoptive forever homes for dogs in pounds and shelters that would otherwise be euthanized.

Their rescue (FGDR) tends to work with large and giant breed dogs but they also take in highly adoptable dogs from high kill shelters in Canada. Most are seized from horrendous situations, while others come in as strays who are often abused and neglected. They do not take in owner surrenders as there are too many dogs in dire need, awaiting euthanization in these shelters across North America.

All of their rescues are fully vetted, spayed or neutered and are placed in foster homes as they do not operate a shelter environment. Therefore, the dogs receive a lot of one-on-one attention and love to help them get over whatever bad experiences they may have had, to help them gain confidence, and to understand that not all humans are cruel. All the rescues are also assessed on temperament i.e. good with kids, cats dogs etc. in order to find the perfect forever home for them.

  “All a rescue dog looks for is a warm place to sleep, food in their bellies, and a kind loving family to shower them with attention. There is nothing more rewarding than looking a rescue dog in the eyes and seeing how much they appreciate a kind face, warm heart and the unconditional love they give back, no matter what circumstances they have come from.

AAW – Hopeful Hearts Dog Rescue

This week Animal Awareness Wednesday is featuring Hopeful Hearts Dog Rescue.

They are a non-profit dog rescue that has been in Ottawa, Ontario since September of 2007.  Although they rescue dogs of all sizes, ages and condition, Hopeful Hearts was created especially to help senior and special needs dogs. These angels are often most turned down by rescues due to the difficulty with finding adoptive homes and inherent vet costs.

I had the pleasure of meeting a few of the ladies from the wonderful organization at the annual Titties 4 Kitties fundraiser of which Hopeful Hearts was one of the two beneficiaries. If the rest of the people in the organization are great as these ladies, then the dogs in their care couldn’t ask for nicer  and more loving foster homes.

Here are pictures of a few of the Hopeful Hearts looking for forever homes. To find out more information and see other Hopeful Hearts head on over to their website!
