It’s A Dog’s Life was was founded in February 2008 by a group of dedicated dog-lovers. We are an all-breed, foster-based rescue in Kenora Ontario who have dedicated ourselves to helping abandoned, abused and surrendered dogs find well suited forever homes.

More than 3100 adoptions
since September 2008

Our mission is to be a transparent accountable and professionally run non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing dogs at risk in the District of Kenora. We have a great team of committed volunteers, foster homes to help us achieve our goals. All of our rescue dogs are provided with temporary foster home care until we find them well-matched and carefully screened forever homes.

Along with rescue, we aim to educate by bringing awareness to responsible pet ownership and the importance of spay/neutering. We work with the many First Nation Communities around Kenora to provide food, dog food and spay/neuter for owned dogs.
