UGLY MUTTS IS BACK TO HELPING SAVE LIVES!

Ugly Mutts Dog Rescue is an all-breed dog rescue that is dedicated to saving the lives of deserving dogs throughout Canada and the Northern United States and providing them with a second chance for a permanent, loving home. Our experienced and dedicated Rescue Team is based out of the Hamilton-Burlington/GTA area, supported by a host of private, pet-friendly foster homes throughout Southern Ontario.


Ugly Mutts has been rescuing and rehoming pets for over 15 years. We use a detailed screening process for both the pets that come into our care and for the people looking to adopt. This enables us to ensure that not only will the adopter meet the needs of the specific pet, but that the pet will meet the wants and desires of the adopter. This process has allowed us to successfully rescue and rehome approximately 200 - 300 pets each year. While our main focus is on dogs, we do attempt to aid any companion animal in need.


For people who find themselves in the unfortunate position of needing a new home for a beloved pet, Ugly Mutts offers a safe and compassionate alternative to pounds and shelters. Your pet will be kept in a loving home environment where they will remain until such time that they can be matched with a suitable, loving, new family. Our goal in rehoming is to help alleviate the stress from a previous owner and to ensure the best match for both the pet and the adopter.


The name “Ugly Mutts” is our tongue-in-cheek way of saying that every dog is deserving of a second chance regardless of their appearance, size or breeding.


Whether you are looking to adopt a dog or needing to find a new home for your pet, Ugly Mutts Rescue Team will ensure the best options for you and your family.

SPONSOR A DOG IN NEED


Most of the dogs that are rescued come with nothing but the hair on their backs and sometimes not even that!
If you care but are unable to be directly involved in the rescue, you can still help save a life by sponsoring a dog in need.
