Meet The Team

Robyn,

Co-Founder

Robyn has always had a passion for animals, and it was a long-time dream of hers to start a dog rescue of her own. During a trip to Alabama with her sister, Robyn saw a red coloured mama dog run across the streets with her two young puppies. She immediately got out of her car to help and they all ran up to her, as if they knew she was there to help. The puppies found forever homes in Canada, and Robyn kept the mama dog now known as 'K.D', the dog behind 'red' dog rescue.  When she isn't saving lives during her day job as a paramedic, she is constantly looking to help more dogs in need. Robyn resides in the Niagara region with husband Corey and 5 rescue dogs, K.D, Lucy, Perogi, Kody, and Pretzel. 

Leah,

Co-Founder

Leah's parents always joked that her first word was 'dog'. She fell in love with the world of rescue after volunteering for a local organization. She has two rescues of her own named Otis and Waylon, both of which came from high-kill shelters. While both dogs had never lived in a home before, Otis had been severely abused and took months to gain confidence. Today both dogs are thriving and are total cuddle bugs. She is passionate about the 'underdogs', and has a soft spot for medical cases and seniors. 

Kathryn fell in love with dog rescue when her first dog Lloyd from Korea came into her life 3 years ago. Since then, she has added Winston, a rescue from Texas to the family. Kathryn has two kids and the occasional foster to keep her busy when she isn't working on her photography business.

Kori, Adoption Lead Manager & Follow-ups

Kori started to volunteer in dog rescue after the loss of her beloved Rhodesian Ridgeback. She later adopted Oscar, a boxer mix, who had been returned by his previous adopters to the rescue she was volunteering for due to his looks. Oscar has been such a light in Kori's life. Her passion in RDR is to find the best possible match for each dog that is adopted out and to follow up with their progress.
