With the advent of spring and the improved outlook regarding vaccination roll-outs our future seems more optimistic than at the time of my last Director’s Message. Nonetheless many of you have experienced COVID-19 hardships and even the loss of loved ones. With respect I offer my sincere condolences.
The Winnipeg Pet Rescue Shelter continues its “Reverence for Life” mission and appreciates that so many pets have been adopted over the past few months are providing comfort and companionship to their new owners in these challenging times.
Our newly introduced “Behind the Scenes” video broadcast has been well received by those viewing our Facebook page. Usually on this short program we feature some of our beautiful pets who are needed special treatments.
Very unfortunately some cruelty and neglect are still apparent in some areas of the society, however, some pets are relinquished to the shelter for legitimate reasons including allergies, declining or poor health, or moving, etc. by their owners. We are certainly willing and able to respond to such circumstances, and can promise care and comfort until adoptions are arranged to new and loving homes.
Our newly expanded retail and boutique area in the Shelter continues to flourish, and I invite you to view our exciting array of products, many of which have been brought to our Shelter for the first time.
Naturally COVID precautions are still applied but I enthusiastically invite you to visit the Shelter. All proceeds go to the benefit of innocent and wonderful pets. Furthermore, your furry friends will be delighted you made the visit!
I hope to see you soon. Best wishes.
