Defending and protecting animals,
because all lives are equal.

Welcome to Refuge RR

Refuge RR has been a registered charity since 1990, and was initially created in 1987. While located in Ontario, Canada, we also provide full assistance to the entire province of Quebec. We rescue, rehabilitate and offer refuge to animals that have been abused, neglected or abandoned. We often travel vast distances to help animals in need and have experienced, qualified people caring for them here at the Refuge.

We rely entirely on your generosity to keep running. We have no paid employees, and 100 percent of your donations and sponsorships go directly to the animals. Join us in our mission to offer refuge, rescue and rehabilitation to creatures of all shapes and sizes, and help us change the way the world treats animals.

More About Us


Due to the recent outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are taking proactive measures to ensure the safety of the Refuge animals and their caregivers. We will have to postpone all visits and events until further notice (please DO NOT show up unannounced)

During this time we will still answer emergency calls for animals in distress ONLY.

Meanwhile, due to the fact that the animals consume over 3000 kg of feed and 24,000 lb of hay weekly, we have to hope that our feed stores can continue to supply us with what we need as we cannot store that large amount. We also hope that the hay dealers will continue to find hay, which in itself is already impossible to find due to the environmental effects of climate change and their inability to grow enough in our area.

Sadly, due to the pandemic donations have increasingly dwindled to nothing. Please consider GIVING a gift to the animals from afar by making a donation to help get them through these trying times.

We empathize with all the families that have been touched by the virus and encourage everyone to take precautions to stay safe and hope we will get through this as a global community.
