Paws of the North is no longer intaking dogs into the rescue for the purpose of adoption. We work with other Ethical Canadian Rescues to facilitate this process.
Please see the rescues below and dogs available to find their furever homes.
The community members we work with make difficult decisions to surrender their dog(s) into our care at their own will. A dog is never removed from the community without an Owner signing a release agreement. We strive to work ethically with these communities to support them with dogs in need of rehoming.

Dear Valued Adopters, Supporters & Donors,
As of July 1, 2023 – Paws of the North Rescue is closing our doors. The past 3.5 years have been so rewarding, challenging and emotional; I wouldn’t change a thing.
I started my rescue involvement 11 years ago, as an Executive Director to a dog rescue in British Columbia. Upon moving back to Ontario, I continued my passion to assist “Northern Dogs” and First Nation Communities – creating Paws of the North.
The amount of support we have received in such a short amount of time has been overwhelmingly wonderful. Our team, Trevor and I could not be more grateful to each and every one of you.
The time has come for us to choose to prioritize our needs and family. We are grateful to be starting this new journey.
Our charitable account is now closed and monies remaining have been issued to Precious Paws Rescue in Barrie – chariatable registration number: 812897668RR0001. Precious Paws Rescue supported us consistently during our community spay/neuter clinics and rehoming program. We appreciate them wanting to continue supporting the north.
Please also consider supporting Project Paws Dog Rescue, who also will continue to support the James Bay coastal communities.
I personally want to thank Halley & Adam Clover and Erin Stewart for their time and dedication as board members. And Meagan Williamson for all her public relations, social media & marketing support. My family for being number one fans.
And my husband Trevor and pack Harper, Jay & Fate – I know there were many difficult days and time lost, I have appreciated every single moment you rode this journey with me. Forever grateful for the support.
Thank you again to this beautiful community we created. I will be forever grateful for your love and support for these beautiful dogs.
