Ruff Start New Beginnings

 Canadian All-Breed Dog Rescue

Together WE can make a difference, one dog at a time!

We are a non-profit, all-breed dog rescue that operates in the Durham and Northumberland Regions of Ontario. 

As animal advocates, we work with many dogs from shelters, native reserves, and owner surrenders. Our sole purpose is to save lives, and help a good dog find the perfect FurEver home! We run a foster based rescue program, and also have a boarding facility (4 kennels) to house dogs in an emergency/crisis situation.

Fosters/Adopters/Transports and Volunteers

We operate thanks to the help of our amazing volunteers. The more the merrier means the more dogs we can help! It takes a village to save a life!
