Community Events

This year has been especially difficult to raise funds for our furry friends in rescue. We rely on the generous donations of pet loving families and businesses in our community, along with our monthly community events, but the restrictions created by the pandemic have caused a serious shortage of funds. Please participate in our online events and share with friends and family, to help us get back to the most important business of all...Saving Animals in Need!

​About Us


Manitoba Great Pyrenees Rescue is a 100% volunteer based, non-profit organization that has been in operation since 1996.  We are located near Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.


MGPR is dedicated to finding quality, forever homes for abandoned, abused and neglected Great Pyrenees dogs.


Although the focus of our rescue is on the Great Pyrenees breed, we also rescue dogs of other breeds, cats and even horses that are in need.


Our animals are housed in foster homes in the community, not in a "bricks and mortar" shelter.  All our animals receive any needed veterinary attention including vaccinations.  All dogs and cats are spayed/neutered and male horses are gelded.  Our adoption fees do not come close to covering costs and donations are gratefully accepted.

We look forward to hearing from you!



Snuffle Mats are great Boredom Busters for both canines and felines! Searching for their favourite tiny treats that are scattered throughout the mat stimulates your pets natural drive to sniff for food. MGPR's handmade Snuffle Mats are made by a group of dedicated rescue volunteers, and are available in a wide variety of colours and patterns. Our Snuffle Mats are sold everyday at Pet Planet on 1510 Plessis Rd, Winnipeg.

Proceeds from the sales of these mats go directly to helping ALL of the Rescue Animals in Our Care!

It's Time to Start SNUFFLIN!

      Meet CHAMP

This sweet guy has so much to be happy about, that he has a grin on his face and a bounce in his step 24/7! Champ had a horrible start in life, but after some daily TLC from his incredible foster family and critical medical treatment, he is 'good to go"...HOME!

Click on "All Dogs" below for more info on Champ and all our adoptable dogs!



      Meet Fendi

Daredevil might not have 20/20 vision but he sure has a wonderful and playful personality. This sweet guy loves all his furry friends and humans alike. He has no hesitancy in exploring his surrounding, climbing up on a lap for cuddles...or even a shoulder to catch a breeze

No matter what this pandemic throws at us, wine is good any time! For just $2 per ticket, you have an opportunity to win the GRAND PRIZE of 24 bottles of wine! 



Tickets can be purchased several ways...

 > in person at Pet Planet, 1510 Plessis Rd. 

 > online, by emailing us the number of  tickets you have paid for via PayPal off  our website or emailed etransfer to 

 > from one of our rescue volunteers that  are personally selling tickets and would  be more than happy to help you out. 

We haven't forgotten about our feline friends in rescue! MGPR has always opened their doors to help cats and kittens in need. While they are in loving foster homes, we make sure they receive proper health care, including Spaying and Neutering. All this comes at a cost and our kitty adoption fees are not enough to cover these expenses,  so we rely on fundraisers and donations to help us. 

Burtle and his siblings are exclusively available for adoption (purchase) at Pet Planet, on 1510 Plessis Rd. We look forward to posting these turtle adoptions on our Social Media pages over the next few weeks, so please tell us your turtles new Family Name and send us photos of your kitty enjoying their new turtle friend.
