Travel is one of our most costly expenses. It takes many team players and a great sum of financial resources to get our dogs here from the far north. Your contribution will help with air travel, gas mileage and travel crates.


Many of our dogs arrive severely malnourished and in need of quality nutrition. Paws of the North is working hard to secure a food sponsor. In the interim, we have many dogs to feed. Your donation will be used to buy food for the dogs currently in our care.

We are always looking to work with keen local businesses that may be able to offer services or supplies that will assist our initiatives. (Ex. Grooming, cleaning supplies etc.)

Our dogs’ health care is one of our top priorities. Bracebridge Animal Hospital assists us with full vetting for all of our dogs, including; routine vaccinations, spay and neuter procedures and more complicated critical care cases. We love that they treat each animal as if they were their own family pet. Like us, they practice respect, courtesy, empathy and responsibility on a daily basis. It is these characteristics that set them apart from other clinics, and we are proud to partner with them and welcome them into our Community Pack!


Every dog that comes into our care requires a secure collar, and who says they can’t look good wearing these fun patterns! SG Supply custom makes all different sized collars for our dogs. All their collars are sewn and handmade from Canadian materials.

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.

Holly Marko
Founder/Executive Director
