There is great truth in the expression that you need to be tough to live in Manitoba. Outsiders are sometimes amazed that life can carry on throughout the winters as severe as ours.
In particular the animals are suffering in this cruel and harsh season. Our shelter is caring for so many pets brought in with frozen ears, paws and tails. Inevitably many of them lose body parts as a result. Their suffering is indescribable.
Compounding the problem is that adoptions decrease significantly at this time of year. Indeed on particularly severe days customer visits to the Shelter are scarce. The Winnipeg Pet Rescue Shelter survives on community support thru donations.
The challenge is immense. We would love to hear from you; we need to hear from you.
