Adoptable Pets

Home   How to Help   Adopt a Rescue   Adoptable Pets

When you adopt a pet, you save the life of an animal in need. Millions of dogs and cats die each year in shelters. There is nothing more rewarding than sharing your heart and your home with a rescued animal.

Please note that many of our pets are shelter rescues, and as such, TAGS will have little background information. TAGS will provide you with all relevant information that our program has; however, we can in no way guarantee the nature or temperament of any animal.

Since TAGS is a smaller volunteer program, we are limited to facilitating adoptions only within Durham Region in Ontario. We encourage those applicants who apply out of area to check your local shelters and rescue programs. We are always happy to refer you to a program in your area.
