DID YOU KNOW that the MGPR is not a shelter? All of our animals are housed in foster homes! There are many reasons for this, but mainly it is just better for the rescues. BUT that means we are always looking for loving volunteers to open their homes.
The MGPR is currently on an intake freeze until we can find foster homes for these 6 pups.
If you have ever thought of being a Foster now is your chance! Please send us an email at MGPRescue@gmail.com
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, 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!
HELP US TO
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!

Our Monthly STARS
Hello! I bet you are surprised to see me here, a bunny, at a dog rescue... well, I am as surprised as you are! MGPR was so kind to let me join all their dogs and cats to help out another rescue after there was a huge influx of bunnies coming in. I am a very social and sweet bunny and get along great with everyone I meet. So I can't wait to meet my forever family soon!

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.
