ABOUT SAVE OUR SCRUFF

Save Our Scruff is a non-profit organization located in Toronto dedicated to rescuing dogs and finding them safe and suitable permanent homes through adoption, advocacy and education. By working with committed volunteers, foster homes, veterinarians, and trainers, we are able to rescue dogs and provide them with loving temporary care while finding them well-matched, carefully screened forever homes.

How We're Different

Save Our Scruff is different than many other rescues because we do not select dogs based on their size or age or even their breed. A dog in need, is a dog in need. No matter if they need medical care or rehabilitation, we will provide them with the care they need before finding their forever home. 

Similarly, we do not select our adopters based on how many hours they work or whether they live on a multi-acre property over a condo. We know that, like amazing dogs, loving families come in all shapes and sizes.  Our goal is to find an adopter whose home, family and lifestyle are a perfect fit for a particular dog. But like.. your chances increase if you enjoy long walks on the beach and/or have a man bun.  

mission

Save Our Scruff is dedicated to preventing overpopulation as well as stopping the cycle of abandonment/neglect while also providing aid/support due to these concerns. We provide care and rehabilitation for stray, abandoned or displaced dogs. We strive to position ourselves as a leader on matters that promote and improve the welfare of dogs through enhancement, protection, care, education and advocacy.

Vision

Rescue all types of dogs from unfortunate situations and provide them with the necessary medical and rehabilitation care that they require, while in loving temporary foster care. During this process, we work to find them well-matched, carefully screened forever homes and as well work towards preventing the need for rescue in the future.
