Located in Ottawa, Ontario, Homes for Paws is an all volunteer not for profit, dog rescue dedicated to rescuing dogs and giving them a second chance at a new life. Our goal is to place the dogs we rescue into loving forever homes. We do not have a shelter, all dogs are placed in separate volunteer foster homes within Ottawa-Gatineau until an adoption match is found.
Our dedicated staff members & volunteers!

As a volunteer-based, non-profit organization that receives no government funding, Homes For Paws (HFP) relies entirely on the support of friends in the community to sustain its operations and programs. The dogs thank you from the bottom of their hearts for your generosity!
Food and medical are provided by HFP. Dogs are available for adoption first to their foster home. We ask that all foster parents be dedicated to caring for our rescues until a permanent adoptive home is found. We try to eliminate the dog from being moved from home to home. Remember that the dogs we rescue have already been through a lot!
Many of our rescued dogs need special care, such as surgeries or other extensive medical treatment. We rely completely on donations and for this reason have an easy way for you to help! Click the Donate button on the Home Page which allows you to donate money to help a dog at Homes For Paws (HFP).

Homes for Paws Dog Rescue is "foster" based which means that a dog in our care is placed in a loving family environment. We rely on volunteer foster homes throughout Ottawa-Gatineau to care for our rescued dogs until adopted.
