Lost Dogs

Pilot's N Paws Canada


 Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and find loving forever homes for dogs that have been abused, neglected and abandoned and left in high kill shelters to die. The dogs are all in caring, committed foster homes in order to assess each dog individually for their needs in order to find them permanent, responsible, forever adoptive homes. Go to our Adoption page to see all the wonderful dogs we currently have available!

About Us

 Friendly Giants Dog Rescue is a non-profit group based in Ottawa with foster homes throughout Ontario, that was created by a network of people that became aware of the growing need to provide a safe haven and to find loving adoptive forever homes for dogs in pounds and shelters that would otherwise be euthanized. View our Code of Ethics document.

 Our rescue(FGDR) tends to work with large and giant breed dogs but we also take in highly adoptable dogs from high kill shelters in Canada. Most are seized from horrendous situations, while others come in as strays who are often abused and neglected. We do not take in owner surrenders as there are too many dogs in dire need, awaiting euthanization in these shelters across Canada.

 All of our rescues are fully vetted, spayed or neutered and are placed in foster homes as we do not operate a shelter environment. Therefore, they receive a lot of one-on-one attention and love to help them get over whatever bad experiences they may have had, to help them gain confidence, and to understand that not all humans are cruel. All our rescues are also assessed on temperment i.e. good with kids, cats dogs etc. in order to find the perfect forever home for them.

 All a rescue dog looks for is a warm place to sleep, food in their bellies, and a kind loving family to shower them with attention. There is nothing more rewarding than looking a rescue dog in the eyes and seeing how much they appreciate a kind face, warm heart and the unconditional love they give back, no matter what circumstances they have come from.
