Our Mission

We are dedicated to helping injured, abandoned, neglected, abused, homeless and unwanted animals: 1. To care for these animals by providing safe, healthy, warm and loving environments. 2. To strive to place these animals in loving forever homes as quickly as possible by a well-documented adoption process. 3. To promote responsible pet ownership, including spaying and neutering, to help alleviate pet overpopulation. 4. To provide an educational aspect to our work through volunteer opportunities in our three temporary cat facilities, and by school visits to teach young people about the care and humane treatment of all sentient creatures.

The overall goal of GBAR is to build and operate a modern ‘No Kill’ shelter facility where animals will receive compassionate care and medical treatment, including vaccination and spay/neuter, as needed, prior to adoption.


Georgian Bay Animal Rescue (GBAR) is a registered charity run solely by unpaid volunteers, who have been dedicated to helping animals in need, since 1999. GBAR is a "No Kill' animal rescue, serving Georgian Triangle, dedicated to helping lost, injured, abandoned, neglected animals; providing compassionate care, spay/neuter, adoption, 'second chances' at life."


GBAR has no formal boundaries; it serves the area commonly known as the ‘Georgian Triangle’, which includes the communities of Wasaga Beach, Stayner, Creemore, Collingwood, Town of Blue Mountains, Thornbury, Clarksburg, Meaford, and the surrounding areas. At times, we have provided assistance to animals beyond this region.


‘No more homeless animals’ We dream and work towards a world in which there are no stray, unwanted, abandoned, neglected or abused companion animals, by building awareness of animal welfare rights, and promoting responsible pet ownership.
