Who we are

Mattie’s Place rescues approximately 250 pets per year, that often join our rescue with urgent medical or behavioural needs and would otherwise have faced euthanasia in their current situation.

Mattie’s Place is not a Registered Canadian Charity. We can not issue tax or gift in kind receipts. We operate as a not for profit and are registered as a business for insurance and liability purposes. We also do not want to limit our voice and advocacy efforts, and being a Registered Canadian Charity diminishes our ability to challenge our government on issues such as Breed Specific Legislation, backyard breeders, sled dog industry, gassing shelters and more.

We are 100% volunteer run with no paid contractors or employees. Donations accepted via Paypal or e-transfer to: info@mattiesplace.ca

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.
