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!


This fun loving guy enjoys his outside time as much as his cuddle time. He's a bit of a nervous Nelly when it comes to new experiences and often needs a bit of coaxing and reassurance, but once he takes the plunge, he enjoys the adventure!

Skipper is your mate if you are looking for a fun loving playful buddy. When he is not entertaining himself with whatever toy he has captured, he is looking for a lap to cuddle into.
