Muskoka Animal Rescue Volunteer Group

Home Page

Serving Muskoka and Parry Sound.
We are a small not-for-profit community, volunteer-based, donation-only service that provides non-judgemental, supportive help for people who are surrendering their companion animals. Our goal is to save animals lives.

We also provide support to people who are looking for a new furry addition to their family.


  • Provide free advice and suggestions to people who are experiencing issues with their pets, including but not limited to behavioural issues, training advice, surrender help, and much more.
  • Spay/neuter education, advice and referrals.
  • Place ads at locations such as: and kijiji and around the community.
  • Screen potential new homes. This process includes completion of an on-line Adoption Application Form. Go to Available Pets to download this form.
  • Once the Adoption Application Form is received it is followed up with a telephone screening.
  • Conduct a home visit to make sure the people are "as good as they sound on the phone".
  • Contact their vet and do a vet check to make sure they get a good reference.
  • Provide transportation from the old home to the new home.
  • Ensure that the old owners sign a Surrender Form.
  • Ensure that the new owners to sign an Adoption Agreement Form.

We believe in the power of community, respect and inclusion.  We are committed to helping people find homes for their pets because we care about our community and love animals.

If you are someone who is surrendering their animal, we know how hard it can be and we know you would want your pet to go to the right home, not a home where your pet may be subjected to neglect, cruelty and abuse.

We have successfully rescued and re-homed over 200 animals!
