We’re sorry if you thought we
were talking about pets.

We had to do something to get your attention because more than 30,000 children are waiting to be adopted from foster care in Canada.

Help find their
forever homes.

Through our Wendy’s Wonderful Kids® program, the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption-Canada focuses on finding forever families for children in foster care who are often overlooked, including teenagers, children with special needs, and siblings.

Your donation will help expand the Foundation’s work to find adoptive homes for the growing number of children waiting in foster care across Canada.

Up to 3x more effective

The Foundation’s recruitment model is child-focused, and it works. Research has proven the model to be up to three times more effective at serving children who have been waiting in foster care the longest.

Together, let’s find these
children forever homes.

The more you share, the more children we can help get adopted.
