About UDR


The UDR is a foster home based, non-profit organization located in the Greater Toronto area dedicated to helping dogs and cats find safe and suitable permanent homes through adoption and education. 

By working with committed volunteers, foster homes, veterinarians, and trainers, we are able to rescue these animals and provide them with loving temporary care while finding them well-matched, carefully screened forever homes. We do not have a physical shelter and all animals live in suitable foster homes while they wait for their forever families.
