About Us



Founded in 2013, The Avery Foundation (TAF) is a non-profit animal rescue managed by a network of coordinators, volunteers, and foster families. We are a small group of animal advocates who are contributing to changing the lives of homeless animals. Our goal is to rescue animals in need, provide necessary medical care and find them the loving homes that they deserve.

TAF is a 100% volunteer-run rescue which operates out of carefully selected foster homes.¬†Our volunteers work diligently to raise funds for the animals through events and fundraisers, with every dollar going towards medical bills, food, and supplies. TAF was created because there was a demand for additional rescue organizations in the Ottawa area. Jenna, TAF’s founder, was saddened to see the amount of animals in need, and the lack of resources and organizations available in the region. On this motivation, The Avery Foundation was born

I'm so happy we found The Avery Foundation and through them our new additions to our family. Keep up the amazing work!
