Adopt A Mutt Rescue

Saving one dog may not change the world, but for that one dog... their world will be forever changed.

*Unless otherwise specified, Adopt A Mutt dogs are available for adoption only within The City of Thunder Bay
(including Rural Thunder Bay).

Why No Breeds?

You may notice we seldom identify dogs by a breed label. Unless truly obvious as a single breed or from known parents, it is difficult to make an accurate guess. This is especially true to puppies. We prefer people adopt a dog based on personality and not what breeds they may or may not be. There is more information on the trend of removing breed labels here:

The Dogs!

All dogs currently in care of the rescue are listed below.

We generally have more dogs in care than available for adoption while they are being assessed and vetted!

All dogs are fully vetted including vaccines, microchip and spay or neuter prior to adoption.
They are thoroughly assessed to ensure their behaviour is known so they can be placed with the most appropriate family.
