All Breed Canine Rescue

All Breed Canine Rescue [ABCR], a small group of volunteers who saw the great need to rescue dogs that other better-established mainstream groups will not help. Some of our rescues are shelter dogs, or dogs that need new homes because their owners are sick, have moved, or their life situation has changed.

Based in St. Thomas, Ontario , we cover Elgin, Middlesex and Oxford counties. We also work with rescue network across North America. We are a small new group of volunteers, trying to do a big job, with big hearts, few foster homes, and limited resources. Don't forget to check out all our dogs here!

Please note that ABCR does not have a shelter facility. All of our rescue dogs are in a foster home program. Please call or email to see one of our dogs. Thank you.
