What We do

Mattie’s Place believes in nurturing the human-animal bond through support and advocacy for homeless pets

Why choose us

Our Mission at Mattie's Place is to find compatible adopters for pets without a home to call their own.


Fast Response

We partner with Canadian shelters & organizations to provide fast response to intake requests, for adoptable pets at risk of death or euthanasia.


Life Saving

We rescue approximately 250 pets per year, and many come into the care of Mattie’s Place with urgent medical needs, from shelter euthanasia lists, or at risk of death due to their current living situation.



We understand life can take a turn and having a pet can be a struggle. We are here to support owner surrenders on a case by case basis. We offer support through pet food, supplies and will do whatever we are capable of doing to help pets and their people as we’re financially able.

Adoption Process

Our adoption radius is within 3 hours of the Greater Toronto Area. We will consider applications outside that radius on a case by case basis.

We do not adopt across Canadian borders.

Everyone is considered a viable applicant, and we look at all of your living situation to see if it’s a match for the pets need that you’re applying to adopt. Yes, We adopt to families with children, individuals, homes without fenced backyards, those living in condos and individuals that work outside the home.

Each pet has an individual need that we look to satisfy by finding a compatible home to that specific pets needs.
