Organization Details
Organization Name: Manitoba Mutts Dog Rescue
Address: Winnipeg MB
Organizational Description: We are a 100% volunteer run dog rescue based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. We take in dogs from all over Manitoba who have been abandoned, abused or surrendered at no fault of their own. At Manitoba Mutts Dog Rescue (MMDR), we believe every dog deserves to be treated as a cherished member of the family, and we do our best to provide as many dogs from our province with this experience. MMDR strives to be a leader in Manitoba's dog rescue network. We work hand in hand with Manitoba communities, local organizations and the general public to improve animal welfare in Manitoba.

Our focus is to give dogs in need a second chance for a happily ever after. We aim to show Manitobans the lighter side of dog rescue and to do away with the sadness often associated with it. We want to create a sense of community among our supporters and for people to realize that fostering is a fun, rewarding experience and adopting a rescue dog is something to be proud of.

Manitoba Mutts Dog rescue is a registered charity and non-profit.
