Cottage Paws Rescue and Mission


How exciting! You've decided to add to your family through adoption! You've come to the right place and we would love to help you find the perfect pet for your family. We thank you for choosing to Adopt-Not-SHOP. 

Our adoption process is designed to ensure each animal is matched with a home suitable for their specific needs and energy level, a place they can be loved and cared for in every way that they need, a happy place to call their FOREVER HOME.

Please visit our ADOPTION PROCESS page for more information. 

There are NO Perfect Pets. An animal is a lifetime commitment and requires love, understanding, patience and training, especially during their transition to a new home. Each animal is an individual and deserves commitment and effort from you. Loving a pet can be a rewarding experience with the right amount of attention and care - they certainly give you much more love in return than you can ever imagine. If you cannot commit 100% to your new pet - please do not adopt.







We often have animals that will be available for adoption soon not listed below. If you are interested in adopting, please get in touch and we can match you with an animal that is right for you!



SUMMER, a sweet Boston Terrier arrived to us needing extensive knee surgery. The costs are quoted at $4100 not including the assessments and veterinary care we have already provided her.



THANK YOU to those who donated towards Summer and her surgery. She is now happy and healing in her forever home! A big thank you as well to Toronto Veterinary Emergency Clinic for doing a great job on her surgery and care!
