Just one wish… a home
Blizzard is simply one of the sweetest gals you will ever meet. She is a little shy at first but soon warms up to a gentle touch and the promise of cookies. She loves the outdoors and is an expert at zoomies. This girl will have you smiling in no time… and will have your heart just as quickly.
Blizzard needs a home.

This sassy little man is a little worried… he’s not sure he’s made Santa’s “good” list this year. This young, bouncy, energetic pup has been with Winnipeg Animal Services since he was a wee one, found on the streets, lost and alone. It’s not been easy, a kennel environment can be tough on a young pup. Although he really tries, he gets so excited at the thought of getting out… he barks and he jumps. He knows it doesn’t look good, but he so wants to be out and and he so wants to play.
Barry needs a special gift this year. He needs someone who understands and someone who is willing to see beyond these silly antics to the good boy that simply needs patience, guidance and more than anything, someone to love.
Barry needs a home.
Christmas is not as much about opening our presents as opening our hearts. ~ Janice Maeditere
Marjorie is a 2 year old beautiful boxer who has been waiting at Winnipeg Animal Services for far too long. She came in as an unclaimed stray way back in May. That’s a long time for anyone to wait, let alone a big, bouncy boxer gal.
Marjorie does have some issues and we are not shying away from them. But most can be managed and even eliminated if she were in a home with a family to guide her.
Marjorie is big for a boxer and she is strong. She needs someone with experience and with the strength to handle her. In the kennel environment she is not getting along with the other dogs. Kennel environments often exacerbate this behaviour. It is hoped that her being in a home situation could make all the difference, but for now it is recommended that she go to a family with no other dogs.
I know, I know, this all seems daunting. But really, all that aside, this girl will steal your heart if given half a chance. Marjorie will do almost anything for a yummy treat and that is a good thing… training will be easy.
She loves to run and play, frolicking about like only a boxer can, jowls flapping. Her silly antics will have you smiling in no time. This girl is just sooo much fun! All she needs is that special someone who is willing to give her a chance.
If you would like to meet Marjorie or would like more information, please come down to Winnipeg Animal Services and the staff will be happy to help you.
Just a reminder when you are adopting a pet, to take the time to meet the scared ones, the shy ones, the ones with the boring colours or missing limbs, the older ones, the frail ones. They have not given up. They just need you. And maybe you just need them too.

“If you’re lucky, every once in a while a four-legged friend will walk into your life and change everything.”
Nala is a one year old mastiff / shepherd mix. This beautiful girl was picked up as an unclaimed stray and has been in the adoption program with Winnipeg Animal Services going on three months. That’s a long time for an active girl to be confined in a kennel environment.
Nala is a big girl with big energy. She needs to move… she needs to run and she needs to play. She is a goofus at heart and her antics will have you smiling, but at the same time she needs to learn control. This girl needs a special foster home… one with an experienced dog-person to assist her in training and with her manners. She needs exercise and she needs training to be able to live up to her potential and become the loving companion she so very much wants to be.
Can you help Nala?
If you would like to meet her or would like more info please contact Winnipeg Animal Services. The staff will be happy to help you and introduce you to our girl.
To help in choosing the right dog for your personal situation, all of the adoptable dogs at Animal Services are assigned a colour. Each colour refers to the best home and best situation for that particular dog. Choosing the right match will ultimately improve the chances of a successful adoption for both the new owners and the dogs.

“Fostering — Loving a dog as your own to give them a second chance.”
Barry came to Winnipeg Animal Services as a scared and sad little fellow. At that time he was about 4 months old.
Almost 3 months later Barry is still waiting and hoping to find his forever family. This little pup is growing up in a shelter.
He needs out.
He needs to play.
He needs a family.
Barry is a young lab mix. Because of his pent up energy he overreacts in his kennel and does not present well. He barks, he jumps, he acts silly.
Instead, take this boy outside to one of the outdoor enclosures and meet the real pup… the one who loves to play ball, the one who would love to show you the tricks he has learned. The one who LOVES to run but does settle after he is able to release some energy.
Barry is young, approximately 6 months old… and he is smart. He will need an experienced owner, one who can help him with his manners and one who is willing to spend time with him. He loves learning new tricks and loves attention.
Barry is a great dog… he just needs a family to call his own. He needs someone to throw his ball!
If you would like to meet Barry, please come down to Animal Services at 1057 Logan Ave. The staff will be happy to help you and answer any questions you may have.
