Who we are

Mattie’s Place is not a shelter, day care or boarding facility. Though you will, from time to time, find rescue dogs and cats spending time in our space, along with programs that strengthen the human-animal bond.

Though most of our rescue pets come from Ontario via owner surrenders & shelter over-flow, we also partner with shelters & rescues in Quebec, Western Canada, Texas, California, Dominican Republic, and Columbia to maximize our rescue efforts for pets in dire need of rescue.

We rescue approximately 200 dogs per year and most come into the care of Mattie’s Place with urgent medical needs and would otherwise have faced euthanasia in their current situations.

Mattie’s Place is not a registered Canadian charity. As a not for profit, we realize that shuts us out of a lot of the donation streams as we can’t offer a tax receipt, but we do not want to limit our advocacy efforts and becoming a registered Canadian charity diminishes our ability to challenge our government on issues such as Breed Specific Legislation. We will be hosting a multitude of fundraisers to help us offset costs associated with running Mattie’s Place.

Since we do not profit from Mattie’s Place, if you’d like to donate to help us help more pets in need, we would love your support. Donations will be used to accept more pets into our adoption program that are facing euthanasia and help offset the cost of medical care provided to most of our cases of dogs and cats that are medical emergencies.

Donations accepted via Paypal or e-transfer to: info@mattiesplace.ca
