Muskoka Animal Rescue Volunteer Group
Donate & How To Help
We are able to accept donations and adoption payments through online Interac email money transfer. If you are familiar with banking online, then you will find this method of making donations and payments very convenient.

You will receive confirmation of your donation/payment. Please note that only registered Charities are able to issue tax receipts, so although you will be receiving a receipt from us, it will not be used for tax refund purposes. We are a rescue group who rely heavily on donations and work on a strict non-profit basis, so you can be assured that your donation is used purely to benefit the animals.
It is our vision to become a registered Charity, so that we will be in a position to not only issue tax receipts, but to attract more funding and donations. If you are, or know of, a Lawyer who will 'donate' the service of preparing and filing the paperwork required, then please contact us!
