GENESIS Dog Rescue is a non-profit organization based in Ottawa and Belleville, Ontario.

We are dedicated to rescuing homeless and abandoned animals, dogs from shelters and taking in desperate owner surrenders who can no longer care for them.

We do so by working with committed volunteers, foster homes, local veterinarians, and our trainers. We are able to rescue dogs in need and provide them with loving temporary care and find them well-matched carefully screened "furever homes".

We also serve as a resource to our community and all pet owners by providing education and information on responsible pet ownership. This includes the importance of spay/neuter, positive behavior training and good nutrition.

We are registered as a Not-For-Profit Charity in Ontario (#1861825) and across Canada (#817052905RR0001).

Making change happen, one dog at a time

More Wag, Less Bark



Featured Dog

Lost & Found

If my humans manage to stray from me, please give them a call. I can’t leave them to their own devices for long!

Sometimes being man’s best friend is a ruff gig. Training and caring for my humans is an arduous but rewarding process.

I watch over four humans (two little ones and two big ones). The big ones think they’re in charge, but it’s the little ones that get my tail in a wagging frenzy.
