Is donating a Puppy/Dog to a disabled person Tax Deductible?. Or do I need to spends thousands and register as an official charity do anything like that?

I would guess that your 'donation' must go to a registered charity/society before you get a tax receipt. Canada gov site has all the info you need.

Hexe - I gave a direct link to the Canada government site which dealt specifically with the question. If the OP can't read the government site then maybe a professional would be needed, but otherwise it's pretty clear to me what the stipulations are.

Possible difference here in that Canada is like the UK, with a free central Government set of websites on tax and benefits matters, that everyone can access, and which do give the definitive word; not sure each and every one of the States goes in for such public information provision ? Even then, its probably a good idea to cross-check Tax advice because it is not unknown for supposedly impartial government advice to lean in the direction of (politically calculated) savings for government !
Fine for the Canadian OP; but if such a service is unavailable to other [ e.g. American readers ], Hexe's warning is timely. Other websites could be presented by sources who really do not know all the 'wrinkles'. Especially since dog breeding and supply is a bit 'niche' as a topic.

If I had donated it to a needy person without a car, there would have been no tax
benefits. I suspect it would be the same with a dog unless you go through a charitable organization.
like others said, best answered by a tax professional in your country.
