Paws Across the Water (PAWs) is a foster-based, non-profit organization and a registered charity, located in the Greater Toronto Area. We are 100% volunteer-based and work hard to find the best homes for dogs that were strays or abandoned.
Our mission is to rescue dogs from unfortunate circumstances and find them the BEST forever homes. Our dream is that one day we won't have to.
Through rescue, spay-neuter programs, education, and advocacy, we are working to reduce strays, advocate for laws that protect animals, and educate on animal welfare issues.
Amazing people with a great passion for dogs and willingness to help! The more the better, so if you are keen on volunteering or contribute in their effort to save as many dogs as possible, then go ahead!
Our experience in finding a rescue through PAWS was excellent from beginning to end. The PAWS ladies are organized and professional and will make sure there is a fit between rescue and the adopting family. Staffed by a group of amazing, dedicated and passionate individuals who love dogs and dog lovers.
Professional, responsive, understanding, and incredibly helpful at all steps of the adoption process. Definitely recommended.
Wonderful rescue that truly rescues some of the world's most vulnerable dogs, nurtures them in foster homes, and then finds them amazing forever families. I can't speak highly enough of this organization!
Your donation will help us save more dogs.
