DisclaimerThe following is a resource list of rescues in Manitoba that work independently of the WHS. This list is not a recommendation from the Winnipeg Humane Society. It is just a list of animal shelters in Manitoba. Please contact each individual rescue for information on its practices. Questions you can ask include:

  • Do you have a foster home available to keep my pet? If not, how will he/she be kept?
  • Tell me about your adoption process – how do you choose a home for my pet?
  • Will my pet receive necessary veterinary care and be spayed or neutered before adopted?
  • What happens if the adoption doesn’t work out? Would you take back my pet? If not, why?

This is not a complete list of animal rescues in Manitoba. If you would like your organization listed, please e-mail us.

Please don’t forget to change any identification (tattoo, microchip, tags or city licenses) for your pet into the new owner’s name, address, phone number, and emergency contact info.
