We rescue dogs and cats from some of the most extreme conditions within Canada and Mexico.

About Us


Every animal we rescue is brought into the warmth of our home-like Sanctuary and started on the road to recovery.

Our Methods


We match dogs and cats to the perfect forever families through an easy adoption process. Why not start?

Rocky Mountain Animal Rescue in Calgary, Alberta

Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and find forever homes for highly adoptable animals who simply come from unfortunate circumstances.

We are a registered non-profit organization that has been in operation since 2000 and has rescued thousands of animals. Our sanctuary is private and located in Alberta, with most of our rescues being fostered in home environments to promote full rehabilitation.
