Our mission


Our mission at Lost Boys Hope Dog Rescue (LBH) is centered on three core objectives: Help, Reduce, and Rehome. We are dedicated to addressing the severe overpopulation of stray and unwanted dogs, many of whom come from Northern Canadian Reserves where resources and veterinary care are scarce, creating hazardous living conditions for the community.


At LBH, we provide essential care and a safe haven until these dogs can be placed in loving homes. Our operations adhere strictly to Canadian Rescue Standards and Best Practices, guided by the internationally recognized "Five Freedoms":

  1. Freedom from Hunger and Thirst - Ensuring ready access to fresh water and a nutritious diet to maintain health and vitality.

  2. Freedom from Discomfort - Providing an appropriate environment that includes shelter and a comfortable resting area.

  3. Freedom from Pain, Injury, or Disease - Prioritizing prevention, rapid diagnosis, and treatment.

  4. Freedom to Express Normal Behavior - Ensuring sufficient space, proper facilities, and the company of other animals.

  5. Freedom from Fear and Distress - Creating conditions and treatments that prevent mental suffering.


Our commitment extends beyond rescue operations; we strive to educate and unite communities around the welfare of animals, leveraging our collective passion for real change. With the support of like-minded individuals, groups, and volunteers, we empower one another to ensure the safety and well-being of all animals.


Lost Boys Hope advocates for rigorous spay/neuter and vaccination protocols to prevent diseases and control overpopulation. Our veterinary partners help us ensure that all dogs reach their senior years in health and happiness.

Although we are one of the largest foster-based rescues in Ontario, we maintain a small, dedicated admin team that keeps our grassroots values at the heart of everything we do. Our founder, deeply involved on the front lines, exemplifies our commitment.


At LBH, our enduring mission is to help, reduce, and rehome through education, advocacy, and comprehensive care services. Join us in making a difference.
