Our mission is to keep as many tails wagging as possible!
Who are we?
Save My Tail is a group of dedicated volunteers and fostering families helping our four-legged friends find their “FurEver” homes.
Find out who we are and what we do
Save My Tail is a group of volunteer dog lovers whose mission is to rescue, provide sanctuary, and ultimately to re-home abandoned, stray, neglected and shelter dogs. Whenever possible we also assist dogs who, because of extenuating circumstances, are unable to remain in their homes with their owners. We are a foster based rescue with fosters located in Central Ontario (Peterborough, Oshawa, Mississauga, Trenton), Canada. We rescue dogs primarily from high-kill shelters in Canada, Northern Ontario Native Communities and will also offer re-homing assistance to families in need.
All dogs are housed in foster homes where they are provided with an enormous amount of love and any medical attention that may be required to insure that they are in good health before adoption. They are all spayed or neutered and brought up-to-date on shots. When time permits, our dogs are also house-trained and taught basic obedience.
All dogs are evaluated for temperament and personality. This helps us to place them in homes that are well suited to their needs and to the needs of their future owners. We work closely with other rescue groups and animal shelters and would love to assist you in finding your next forever friend.

What People Say
Hello Deena & Miranda, and Save My Tail!
Since it will soon officially be Macey’s second ‘birthday’ with me, I wanted to take a moment to THANK YOU for bringing her into my life! These last two years have been amongst the happiest and I feel so blessed to have Macey. Despite her many disabilities (her diabetes, her blindness and her dementia), looking after her has been a joy. She has managed so well on her own that sometimes I forget that she has special needs! All it takes is a little extra love, which she happily returns. She is the bravest and most loving companion imaginable and I am so glad that she chose me as her fur-ever mom!
Thank you for all the wonderful work that you do. Macey says, “WOOF!

Riley (Winston) was one of the 5 lab puppies you had last year and since we brought him home in January he has been a joy to have as a member of our family. He has grown quite a bit and is has learned a lot about how to be a well behaved boy. Thank you so much for the work that you do and for helping bring this adored and valued family member into our lives. Hope your having a great day.

Hi Miranda and Deena,
Today is Indy’s adopt-a-versary! It’s been one whole year since we brought him home, I can’t believe it…it feels like yesterday. We’re so glad we were lucky enough to adopt this great boy, he fits our family even better than we had hoped and we love him more than we thought was possible! He has such a big personality and makes us laugh on a daily basis. He truly is the BEST boy and we couldn’t imagine our family without him. He’s a big brother to another rescue dog now as well and he loves his new role, and of course loves having a friend to play with constantly.
Thank You both so much for doing what you do to give these amazing dogs a second chance to find their happily ever afters!
