You can't buy happiness,
but you can rescue it.

Who We Are

Hopeful Tails Dog Rescue is a Toronto-based not-for-profit dog rescue and a registered charity that is committed to ensuring a better and safer life for stray, abandoned, and abused companion animals who are in need of a place to call home.

At Hopeful Tails, we strive to be a small rescue that makes a BIG impact.

Our Values


We love dogs and are passionate about their welfare. We recognize the strong bond between people and pets and we help to strengthen this bond through our rescue work.


We are transparent to the public and our partners about the work that we do, our finances, and from where we get our dogs.


We operate honestly and legally.

Hopeful Tails is a 100% Foster-Based Dog Rescue

We rely on foster homes to support dogs waiting for adoption.

These homes provide a space for the dogs to decompress and fully express themselves.

Here, they can recover from past trauma and overcome fears or adverse behaviours.
