At Animal Alliance / Saving Dinah, we were thrilled to learn about Manitoba Mutts Dog Rescue (MMDR), a 100% volunteer run dog rescue based in Winnipeg.
We take in dogs from all over Manitoba who have been abandoned, abused or surrendered at no fault of their own. At Manitoba Mutts Dog Rescue, we believe every dog deserves to be treated as a cherished member of the family, and we do our best to provide as many dogs from our province with this experience.
In just over two years, the MMDR team has grown from four board members to a dedicated team of over thirty, illustrating the need for such a service in the province and the eagerness of Manitobans to lend a helping hand.

RENNIE – 1 year old Border Collie X
Hi there! I’m RENNIE! I came into care at MMDR from Winnipeg Animal Services where I was shutting down. What I really needed was a loving foster family to take me in and to show me what it was like to live in a home with people who love me.
I am a very happy and sweet girl who loves people very much. I am weary of other dogs and need time and proper introductions to get along well with them. I am scared of them and have tendency to lunge becaue I think I need to protect myself. I would do best as the only dog in a home, or in a home with a family that is very patient and has dog experience. My current foster home has 2 dogs and I have become very good friends with one of them, and the other has learne to just ignore me and we co-exist just fine. I would much rather prefer the companionship of people over other animals though. I also have a very high prey drive and could not live in a home with cats or other small animals. BUT if you have kids in your family I assure you I will be just wonderful and in love with them!
I have TONS of potential and love to learn! I am an extremly smart girl (I am a border collie cross after all) and given the proper experienced home who will give me tons of love, exercise, training and patience I will thrive and become the perfect family dog. Consider giving a girl like me a chance… my foster mom told me that I really deserve on. I promise that I won’t let you down. -Rennie
