Helping Our Community

Helping Our Community

Helping our communities is an important part of what we do at Rocky Mountain Dog. We are always looking at innovative ways to help shelters and dogs in need as well inspire our customers to also participate.

Here's How you can help

Ways to support shelters

Rescues are under a lot of pressure since requests for pet adoptions have dropped and backyard breeding continues to be a problem. The demand for puppies and dogs has gone down following the height of the pandemic but the number of dogs in need of fostering and adoption has not declined.   

One of our goals in 2023 is to focus on helping rescues and organizations that help dogs in need. You can help as well by reaching out to a local rescue or shelter in your area and:

  • Foster
  • Adopt 
  • Donate, or 
  • Volunteer

Organizations we Support

Heart Mountain Rescue


In the winter of 2023, Rocky Mountain Dog donated over $700 worth of dog gear to Heart Mountain Rescue to help reduce costs outfitting all the dogs with gear.

Heart Mountain Rescue is a not-for-profit organization based in Alberta, run entirely by volunteers.

Their mission is to find furever homes for dogs in need, to prevent overpopulation with spay/neuter clinics & to promote the welfare of dogs through education and advocacy. 

They are always looking for fosters, people to adopt and donations for foster pet packages.

Eastern Ontario Potcake Rescue 


Eastern Ontario Potcake Rescue is a small, but mighty, volunteer-run registered Canadian Charitable Organization based in Ottawa, ON.

EOPR is committed to rescuing, and finding safe, suitable and loving forever homes for island dogs (potcakes) from various islands in the Caribbean. We assist our rescue partners overseas with rescue and spay/neuter efforts: both monetarily and on the group, helping in any way we can to solve the dog overpopulation problems at the root cause. In 2020, we widened our mandate to helping local shelter dogs on last chance euthanasia lists. 

"Potcake" is the name of the feral dogs from the Caribbean Islands. The name originates from the Bahamas and the Turks & Caicos Islands. They were dubbed with this name because the locals used to feed stray dogs the caked on remains of the cooking pot from their dish called "rice and peas".

Rocky Mountain Dog has donated Vintage Banff leashes to the organization. If your looking for a sweet pup in Eastern Canada this is a great place to look.
