Mission Statement

Navan Animal Rescue Corporation’s (NARC) mission is to educate, inspire, and assist individuals and organizations of diverse cultures in treating animals with respect in order to achieve a peaceful, equitable and sustainable future with our companions/pets.

Education, Inspiration and Assistance. These are the means through which NARC works toward its goal of a healthy world where people can live in harmony with their animals.  NARC’s role is to bring people together in support of this goal and to give them the knowledge, the tools and the help they need to build a better future for our companions/pets.

NARC was recently created in 2007, to use education and cooperation as a catalyst for uniting various groups and their members (from SPCA’s, Humane Societies and Veterinarians to a dog owner and pet stores) behind their common love of animals, directing their shared enthusiasm to the cause of protecting them.

The key to that success remains the diversity of the many groups and individuals who come together, with the help of NARC to safeguard animals that are abused, neglected or starving. NARC stays connected to these grassroots through its board of Directors and network of independent volunteers. Together they work with other like-minded individuals and groups to build and empower the safety of all animals in the Ottawa, Quebec and surrounding areas needed to accomplish real change.

    My husband Winston and myself ( Lynn) saw Betsy’s puppies and were interested in maybe adopting one. We were wondering if we could meet with your adoption worker and meet with the puppies. We had a dog named Chester however he passed away in July 2014 at the age of 16 1/2 which we were blessed since he was a lab husky and probably had great Dane due to his height. My daughter and her boyfriend who reside with us have a Jackabee named Panda who will be one year old on June 23rd she is also part Beagle. Please call if we can meet.

    The dogs under “Available” – tabs on the left hand side are the ones available for adoption. Our adoption questionnaire is also under Adoption Information, you can send that in at anytime with information on the dog of choice. When one comes in that matches, we will give you a call or e-mail. Thank you.

    I am not sure how this website works? Are the dogs pictured in the photos at the bottom of the page available for adoption?

    I am interested in knowing more about the adoption process and if you have dogs available in the near future.

    Unfortunately we do not have a Kennel License, we are a non-profit charitable rescue organization but can’t take pets that haven’t originally come from NARC. Sorry that we can’t help with this! Thank you.

    We rescued a little kitty over winter. She is now 11 months old, has been spayed and vaccinated.

    Unfortunately she decided that our home is now her home. We are OK with that as we LOVE HER very much, but we have a problem.

    Before she became part of our lives we had already booked a vacation to visit our family in Europe from Mid-May to Mid-July and we do not have the money that boarding places or are asking for that period of time.

    Would your association be willing to look after her for 2 months, of course we will provide the food ans are willing to pay something. Or maybe you know a person or an association who will be willing to do it.

    Looking forward to your answer, thank you in advance,

    He is an amazing dog, very sweet and well behaved. We are opened sat and sun between 1pm and 3pm if you wish to meet him. We all love Bruno very much, he has changed drastically and is quite the perfect pooch although he still needs to gain some weight. Thanks.

    We had a boxer for eleven years named appollo. He was our everything We had to put him down due to seizures. The last one would not stop.We miss him greatly. Our son went into a major depression.We also have another dog named missy she is four she loved appollo. I started getting strange signs that we should get another boxer. On ottawa dog rescue there was a boxer named Gracie who was three SHe had appollos mothers name.My son and daughter wanted her but I backed off thinking it was not the right time. Now another coincidence occurred you have a three year old boxer named Bruno that was apollos fathers name I did not tell my children yet but I need to know about him we also live in Avalon ten minutes from you

    We saw your ad on Used Ottawa and wanted to respond. We are available to help foster some of your dogs and puppies, as long as they are the non-shedding breed as we have a son that has some mild allergies to regular dogs but does not react at all to breeds such as the labradoodle, shih-Tzu, maltese, poodle and such. We have pets in our home presently but they are limited to birds and reptiles at the moment. We would love to have a dog join our family at some point but for now we would love to foster. We are a homeschooling family so my older children (14 12 and 8) are home all day so we are available and present for anything the animals may need. We have worked with bird, reptile, cat and dog rescues many times before.

    Please let us know if you are still looking for families to help out your organization.

    Take care,
