Manitoba Underdogs Rescue is struggling to pay mounting veterinary bills after taking in 13 stray dogs from remote northern communities. The organization that rescues hungry and freezing dogs is facing vet bills topping $8,000.

It’s heartbreaking. We bring these dogs in from the cold and you cross your fingers that they’re going to be okay. Sometimes all they need is a bit of TLC, but sadly sometimes they’re very, very sick. But you can’t say no. You just can’t. Without us they would freeze or starve, and we just can’t leave them to die alone. Thank you to everyone for your support! - MUR Executive Director Jessica Hansen

Donations are now being accepted at Southglen Veterinary Hospital, 730 St. Anne's Road or by calling 204-452-0077, and on the Manitoba Underdogs Website.  You can donate online 
Manitoba Underdogs Rescue is a registered charitable organization.
