ANY AMOUNT HELPS!  We are proud to assure you that your donation goes directly to providing life-saving services for homeless dogs. Save Our Scruff does not receive any financial support for this important work from federal, or local government agencies. We rely solely on donations from members of our compassionate, animal-loving community. All donations go directly to the dogs to pay for veterinary care, transportation and training. Please consider making a one-time donation or become a monthly sponsor. Thank you! 

Please email if you have items you'd like to donate. 

If you are donating on someone's behalf, you can download our printable donation certificate here.

Please note: we do not issue tax receipts for donations $20 and under.

Whoever said you can't buy happiness never saw the face of a rescue pup. Here's how you can help: 


TREAT ME - $25

Your donation of $25 will go toward a general veterinary exam that all dogs receive when arriving into our care.  In short, you donate for us to look at their poop. 



Your donation of $50 will help save a dog from an uncertain future by contributing to their transport to Toronto and into the loving arms of SOS, either by air or ground travel (and by that we mean unicorn). 


TRAIN ME - $100

Your donation of $100 will go toward training needs. While this certainly doesn't cover the full cost to help rehabilitate a dog, it gets the ball rolling. 


FIX ME - $200

Your donation of $200 will help reduce the number of unwanted dogs in shelters by contributing for the cost of a spay/neuter of an unaltered dog. 



Your donation of $400 will help cover the costs of an "average" SOS scruff in foster care. By average, we mean average care, not an average dog. If you would like to sponsor a specific scruff, please reach out to Allison ( to find out how you can support one of our special cases.
