Saskatoon Dog Rescue is a non-profit organization founded in 2012 and is dedicated to the rescue of neglected, abandoned and unwanted dogs across the province. The rescue is run by a board of volunteers and operates through a network of foster homes.
Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home dogs within Saskatoon and surrounding areas. We work closely with other rescue organizations, as well as communities where there is limited to no resources for animals. We believe that every animal has the right home awaiting them, and that it is our responsibility to ensure they find that home!
What We Do
Many of our rescues come in as strays from poor living conditions or over-flowing shelters. We take the time to assess each animal both mentally and physically before putting them up for adoption. Once the animal has been assessed, we place them into a foster home that is the best fit for him/her. They then receive the appropriate medical care as well as training until they are suitable for adoption.
Our foster homes care for SDR dogs around the clock! Behind the scenes we have a group of dedicated volunteers who organize events, take dogs to the vet, facilitate adoptions, and much much more!
Medical Case of the Month
When Lady came to us in July, she went in for a routine spay, at which time a mass was found in her abdomen area. After taking her in for an ultrasound, it was found she had a diaphragmatic hernia. Lady is all booked in for her surgery and is expected to make a full recovery. Her surgery is quite expensive; ranging from $4500-6000 so as always, donations are greatly appreciated!
Featured Adoptable Dog
From Poppy's foster home:
Poppy is a 1 year old female black lab cross. She is a total sweetheart and loves everyone she meets. She's great with young children and other pets, and knows how to be gentle and play appropriately despite her large size. She is also adorably clumsy. She will need an owner willing to put in the time to teach her manners and commands. That being said, she tries very hard to do what she thinks is asked of her, is eager to please, and learns quickly. She is house trained and kennel trained.
Sadly, black dogs like Poppy are often overlooked due to the color of their fur. They are seen as "boring" by potential adopters, and tend to sit in rescues and shelters much longer than their more unique looking counterparts. Consider adopting a black dog today!
We wouldn't be able to save as many lives as we do without our amazing supporters and partner companies. We can't thank you enough!
