Urban Tails Animal Rescue

Our Mission

 dedicated to animal welfare advocacy & finding forever homes for animals in need



Urban Tails Animal Rescue is a non-profit rescue dedicated to animal welfare advocacy, finding forever homes for animals in need and fighting the overpopulation crisis. Urban Tails rescues both dogs and cats of all ages, breeds and sizes, however, we have a particular focus in helping special needs, senior and palliative cases.

Our vision is to continuously promote animal welfare advocacy, to educate the public about animal overpopulation/ abuse, the importance of spay & neuter and to save every life we can within our means.

We are continuously focusing our efforts on the planning and execution of spay/ neuter clinics both in Canada and abroad in an attempt to combat the street cat and dog overpopulation crisis. As an organization, we believe in the importance of starting at the root of the issue we are all facing in rescue and hope to make a difference.



“Each and every animal of earth has as much  right to be here as you and me .”

Ways You Can Help



Adopting an animal and saving a life is one of the most rewarding feelings in the world. If you see an animal that you’re interested in adopting, we encourage you to apply. There is a bit of a process, but we’ll walk you through it.

Check out our adoption page for more details.


Fostering is a great opportunity for you to be involved in the rescue process, without the full commitment of owning a dog or cat. Don’t get us wrong, fostering is still a commitment! Fosters may need refreshers in house training, basic training, socialization, medical rest, confidence building and other special attention to get them ready for adoption, however, you will be rewarded with lots of cuddles, unconditional love and kisses from your new pal. 

Check out our foster page for more details.



Urban Tails Animal Rescue is 100% volunteer run and without your help, we are unable to do what we do. Want to get involved but you’re not sure how? We’re always looking for volunteers who can assist with a variety of things.
