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, the occasional rabbit and guinea pig 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, male rabbits and guinea pigs are neutered and male horses are gelded.  Our adoption fees do not come close to covering costs and donations are gratefully accepted.

Interested in becoming a member of our team?  We are always in need of new foster homes for dogs and cats.  Apply below!

We look forward to hearing from you!

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!

FIV+ Cat Facts

FIV or Feline Immunodeficiency Virus can sound pretty scary! FIV attacks the immune system of our feline friends, leaving them susceptible to other infections or illnesses. 

Thankfully, being tested positive for FIV is no longer a death sentence. Although there is still no cure, we now know that cats can live long and happy lives WITHOUT infecting another cat.


Precautions are still taken by:

  • adopting a FIV positive cat into a home that either already has FIV cats or no other cats.

  • making sure all cats in the home are up to date with vaccines and boosters.
