Coveted Canines is a Toronto-based Dog Rescue organization that focuses on dogs that are at high risk of being euthanized and those that are vulnerable to abuse.

We believe there is the right home out there for all the dogs in our rescue and pride ourselves on matching our dogs to people. Our goal is to find the right forever home for each dog in need!

Coveted Canines is a not for profit organization that is wholly run by unpaid volunteers. Everyone on our team donates their time and expertise all for the love of dogs! We do not have a shelter – we place our dogs in loving foster homes where they feel safe to bloom and can learn important socialization skills.

Our Vision

To eradicate the global issue of canine homelessness, overpopulation and abuse through compassionate action and education.

Our Mission

To collaborate with local and international communities to save vulnerable canines from high-risk environments and place them in safe and loving homes.

To educate people on the plight of canines at risk worldwide and inspire them to actively pursue solutions to the problem through rescue and responsible pet ownership.

Our Values


 We work together to create an environment that is respectful, honest and transparent. We act with integrity and accountability to demonstrate our commitment to our mission.


We strongly advocate for the health and well-being of the canines in our care by taking a holistic approach to their healthcare in close consultation with licensed professionals; our comprehensive protocols on quarantine before transport and vetting are paramount to our success.


We provide our canines with patient, positive, and supportive environments to meet their individual needs. We recognize that each canine is unique and needs consistent and compassionate care to fully develop.


We collaborate with our wider community to achieve our collective goals. We build strong relationships with our community partners and volunteers, and work together to realize our mission. We believe that teamwork is the key to our success.


We provide adopters and fosters with the education and resources needed to provide supportive and loving homes for vulnerable canines. We educate the community about the plight of canines locally and internationally as a means to encourage the public to join us in our mission to eradicate homelessness, abuse and overpopulation.


We respect the boundaries of our canines, volunteers, fosters and community partners by valuing their diverse backgrounds, contributions, and opinions. We interact in a professional and respectful manner at all times.
