Since receiving charitable status in 1999, the Winnipeg Pet Rescue Shelter has saved thousands of pets that were abandoned, unwanted, relinquished or needed to be rescued.
The Shelter has found loving homes for all of these innocent animals, but the work is far from done. Many of these animals had either been relinquished by their owners, no longer able or willing to care for them, while others had been abandoned or abused by uncaring individuals.
The Shelter is always filled to capacity with cats, kittens, dogs, puppies and birds – all waiting for a new life in a loving home. Over 200 pets are on a waiting list to come into the Shelter and we receive 80-100 requests a day from people who need to relinquish their pets for one reason or another. Some rescued animals stay for a day, some a week, some a month and some for a year or more.
There are many ways you can financially support the Shelter. We have supportive businesses that give us a donation as a % of a sale to promote the contribution made to our charity. By donating a portion of a service or product sold, you are providing the Shelter continuous funding. Your customers see your generous support of the community and a local charity.
