Please support Riley's Roadhouse Rescue and Sanctuary

Donation protected

Dear Friends,
We are a group of dog owners and lovers fundraising to purchase property in the Hamilton/Halton region to accommodate a brick and mortar facility for a dog rescue/sanctuary in Southern Ontario where all our forgotten dogs will be given the care and attention they deserve. This GoFundMe is organized by Sue Rennick, Best Behaviour Dog Training Services (helping dog owners in the Oakville, Burlington and surrounding areas)
In a world where uncertainty seems to be the only constant, there's one thing that remains unwavering: Our love and compassion for animals in need.
As the world begins to emerge from the shadows of the pandemic, we're faced with a heartbreaking reality: a growing number of dogs are being surrendered due to changing circumstances, leaving them vulnerable and in need of a lifeline. But amidst this darkness, we see an opportunity to shine a light of hope—a beacon of compassion and care for these precious creatures.
Our mission is to establish a dog rescue and sanctuary—Riley’s Roadhouse Rescue and Sanctuary. We refuse to let these loyal companions fall through the cracks.
Our vision extends far beyond the confines of a "virtual" rescue that is continuously seeking “foster families” to temporarily house these dogs. We envision a home, a sanctuary—a place where wagging tails replace tears, where playful barks drown out the echoes of abandonment, and where every creature—regardless of age, breed, or background—is welcomed with open arms and an open heart.
Imagine a place where every dog, regardless of their past, finds refuge, love, and a second chance at happiness. This is the vision we're tirelessly working towards at Riley’s Roadhouse Rescue and Sanctuary.
But to turn this dream into reality, we need your support. We can't do this alone. We need your help to turn this vision into a reality. Every dollar donated brings us one step closer to securing the property, resources, and infrastructure needed to create this haven for dogs in need. From fencing, food, medical supplies and staffing, every contribution plays a vital role in building the foundation of our rescue and sanctuary.
Your donation isn't just a gift; it's an investment in the future of our dogs—the promise of a better tomorrow filled with love, companionship, and the chance to thrive. Whether you can spare a little or a lot, your generosity has the power to make a difference in the lives of countless dogs who are counting on us.
Join us in our mission to create a rescue/sanctuary where every dog is seen, heard, and valued—a place where their journey from hardship to happiness begins.
Thank you for believing in our vision, for your unwavering support, and for being a voice for those who cannot speak for themselves.
With heartfelt gratitude,
Riley's Roadhouse Rescue and Sanctuary
