About Our Foundation
Inspired by personal experiences in rescue and a life-changing event, the Mountainside Hope Foundation was established in 2022 in Vancouver, Canada. We are working hard to improve the lives of those in need. Here you can learn more about who we are and what we do.
We work hard every day to better the lives of our charity's recipients through our many causes — Canada-wide TNR Programs, Special Needs Case Support, Rescue Animal Adoptions and Community Awareness and Education.

Dylan was found on the 11th of April 2020, lifeless in the middle of the desert in Kuwait’s scorching summer heat. He was taken into the care of a local Kuwaiti rescue group, and it was immediately apparent that he was not only suffering immensely from his injuries but was emotionally shut down; his soul was broken. Dylan was taken directly to the vet, and after examination, it was concluded he had been shot in his paw with a gun, leaving an open fracture and bone exposed. The gunshot wound had shattered all his right carpal bones and ligaments. His foot was severely infected, causing his body to shut down. We cannot even begin to imagine the pain and suffering he was experiencing. He could not walk; he could not defend himself from other dogs, and he certainly could not roam to find any source of food or water.
From our supporters:
For my birthday this year I was thinking of asking my friends and family for donations to my favourite rescues (@raincoast dog rescue, and @mountainside hope rescue) all the things these rescues do for the animals is amazing and I envy there commitment and the time they spend saving these animals - Love Emma (15)
