About S.O.A.R.

Southern Ontario Animal Rescue (SOAR) is made up of a small, very dedicated group of volunteers based in Brampton, Ontario, Canada, committed to rescuing all breeds of dogs in need.

Mission: Our mission is to rescue every single dog that we can, including dogs that have been abandoned or rejected due to ill health, abnormalities or old age.

SOAR was founded in February 2005 through the vision of Jan Paquete. SOAR is a non-profit incorporated organization and we received our registered charity status in December 2007. Over the past nine years SOAR has grown to become an established and very well-known dog rescue. In early 2014, Jan moved on from SOAR and today the organization is headed by Andrew Martin, President.

Operating with limited resources and relying on the public's generosity to conduct its work, SOAR is graced by the support of its loyal followers. Our volunteers are our heart and backbone!  We’ve grown from a handful of die-hard rescue advocates to a small force of animal lovers dedicated to the dogs who no one else wants, something most rescue groups are unable or unwilling to do. We receive no funds from any agency, corporation or government. All monies are raised through the time and efforts of our volunteers at events throughout the year, such as dog shows, pet shows like All About Pets and SOAR-run events like our annual Christmas Party, Educational Seminars, etc.  Our fundraising is fully channelled to the wonderful dogs in our care and we are proud to work with and support the rescue community in Southern Ontario.
