Welcome to Riverview Rescues!

We are a small, foster-based rescue located in Renfrew County and Ottawa.

Our rescue animals come from all over the world; however, our main focus is to help local animals in need.
We support and work with many different rescues to accomplish the same goals. If you need help, reach out. 

Thanks for visiting, 
RR Team



Why Adopt?

Adopting an animal instead of purchasing one from Kijiji or Facebook marketplace helps give a needy animal a home. The more that people purchase off these sites, the more the backyard breeders see the need to breed their animals. We take in amazing animals from kill shelters to give them a second shot at life. Consider adoption! 

Are breeders bad?

No! Reputable breeders that follow CKC standards are wonderful. Also, they almost always take the animals back if the purchasers have an issue in the future. If you've purchased your animal from a breeder and you'd like to surrender please connect with your breeder first. 

Why do I have to pay for a rescue animal?

Because animal care and vetting costs money! Adoption fees, fundraising and donations are our only sources of funding. 

Trust me, the amount of money your adoption fee is, is only a fraction of the costs that go into the rescue animals! 

How can I help?

We always need drivers, fosters and fundraising volunteers. We also have a list of donations we are in need of and an amazon wish list you can find under the donate tab!
