To make a difference...one dog at a time.
Catahoula Rescue Ontario works in conjunction with Catahoula Rescue Inc., an organization founded in 2001 by a small group of Catahoula owners. Catahoula Rescue advocates for homeless Catahoulas and Catahoula mixes and places these animals in permanent, loving homes.
We promote responsible guardianship through humane education. We also assist responsible Catahoula owners if they must find a new home for their dog. We can offer advice and options that might make it possible for the dog to stay with his family. If it is still necessary to rehome the dog, we will list him/her on our available pets page. We also try our best in Ontario to help our local rural pound dogs and you will often see non-Catahoulas on our site that are looking for loving homes. All of the dogs that come into our care go to various foster homes. The location of the dog's foster home is listed in each individual ad. Our work is paid for by donations, adoption fees, and the volunteers themselves and we are always looking for foster homes.
Catahoula Rescue Ontario is operated 100% by volunteers - people who love dogs, especially Catahoulas, and work hard to match these wonderful dogs up with loving families. Volunteers transport dogs in need from shelters to safety, provide foster homes, organize and help with fundraising events, photograph the dogs for their profiles, and keep the web site and Facebook page up-to-date.
A great big THANK YOU to everyone who's a part of this great group that works so hard to save the lives of dogs in need and find them their furever homes!

Please check out the pages on our web site for more information on CRO and Catahoulas. If you would like to adopt one of our dogs, an online application can be found on our Adopt a dog page. If a dog's profile includes "Pending" beside its name, it indicates that we have an active application on the particular dog that we are screening.
