About Us

Founded in February of 2014, Adopt A Mutt is a no-kill, home based rescue located in Thunder Bay, ON.

All dogs adopted from Adopt A Mutt are vaccinated (age appropriate), microchipped and spay or neutered.
Puppies under 16 weeks of age will require their final core vaccines with your regular veterinarian.

Our dogs come from a variety of sources including local surrenders or northern communities via our partnership with Northern Reach Rescue Network. Our passion is medical rescue. We have taken many neonates and raised them by hand that would not have otherwise survived due to birth defects, orphans, rejection by their mothers, etc. Click Here to learn more!

Adopting from Adopt A Mutt is an easy process!
We use an adoption form to help us determine that a dog is a good match for its prospective home.
If it seems like it will be, we deliver the dog to their new home to begin a trial adoption.


All information that is known about the dog is relayed to the new owners to allow the transition into the new home to be as smooth as possible.

We take pride on keeping our adult dogs in rescue for a minimum of two weeks to allow them to show their true personalities.
This reduces the chance of problems from surfacing in a forever home such as dog aggression, child aggression, etc!

Donations are always gratefully appreciated and go toward costs for all dogs currently in care awaiting their forever homes.
