Founded in 2007 by hobby farmer Michèlle Mayer, Navan Animal Rescue Corporation will hopefully emerge as the nation’s premier rescue organization, helping a range of animals across Canada, USA, Mexico and Cuba.

NARC recognizes the link between the people’s desires to help and build our quality of life together; we set out to protect defenseless animals against cruelty, starvation and neglect. We understand that it will take millions of informed, motivated people to do the job.

NARC’s primary focus remains education. NARC’s website, blog and hands-on work programs will provide information and inspiration, linking children and families back to nature and showing them how to protect animals/pets. NARC will provide the tools to help educate concerned citizens and pet owners. NARC will educate the public about cruelty problems and work with them to find effective, equitable solutions. NARC will reach out to people across Ontario, to share information and ideas on how we can all work for a brighter tomorrow for all the pets in Ontario and FOR PEOPLE.

    If you remember the mother’s name or some of the siblings NARC names, this would help clients get in contact with you through this blog!!

    We are looking for our dogs siblings! We adopted him from a german shepherd mix litter in November of 2012. We would love to give our information to those who adopted his siblings….please help us out! We would just love to see what they look like 🙂

    Unfortunately we only have room for a few larger breeds at NARC and have our limit of them now! Please go on to find other rescues in the area that may take him and ensure he finds a loving home! In Kingston, there is a rescue that only takes in older dogs, we also don’t descriminate and will take in older dogs but unfortunately all of our spots are filled at the present time! They should also try to find him a home themselves through kijiji, usedottawa, the Sun, Citizen… they may luck out and find the perfect home! Thanks.

    Hi there,
    I’m just doing some preliminary research. And I’m really not sure where to start. I’m hoping you can help me, or point me in the right direction.
    Here’s the situation:
    A friend of ours’ brother, for financial reasons had to move in with his mother. She lives in an apartment building that doesn’t allow dogs. Logan is a male, 9 1/2 year old Ridgeback. I am watching him for a week or two. He is going to be surrendering the dog to the Humane Society but they aren’t able to take him for 2 weeks. I’m suspecting that being that he’s an older dog that he would perhaps be put down. I’d like to avoid that happening if at all possible.
    I’m not able to keep the dog. He’s awesome! He whines a little bit but then settles. He loves to play, loves to run, gives lots of kisses. He is a great dog.
    I’m guessing given the owners situation that he probably doesn’t have a lot in the way of paper work on the dog so I don’t know where to go from here.
    Please let me know if you can help or provide me somewhere else to do.

    Thank you and Happy Easter,

    Agatha is approx 5 years old and Demetria approx 4 years of age, hard to tell as they come from a puppy mill and their teeth were really bad, we had them cleaned, Agatha had 2 extractions… They are now doing stairs, still a bit shy with strangers but coming for some loving with certain volunteers they know and jumping on me for attention and loving! They are wonderful but would be best suited placed separately as they do feed off each other which is not a good thing. Thanks.

    Still wondering about how old are Agatha and Demetria please? Do they know each other? What is their story please, a little more than what is listed? Thank you.

    Sounds great!! Thanks again!

    Hi Dylan, yes you can surely join our team once you are 16. Look at our volunteer handbook on this website, bring the last few pages signed by your parents when you first start. E-mail us the week prior to wanting to volunteer with us and we will let you know what time to meet us for training. Thank you!

    Hi I’m Dylan I was hoping that I would be able to volunteer during the summer. I’m a friend of Sab Mayer’s and she told me that it’s an amazing place. I love animals and I’m capable of doing whatever you would like me to do. I was told that I had to be 16 years of age and I turn 16 during the summer so if there are any spots that need to be filled please e-mail me. Thanks a bunch!
