It’s a DREAM Come True

A warm, waggling welcome from The DREAM Team!

We are absolutely thrilled to be launching Dog Rescue, Education & Advocacy of Manitoba. A bit about us: with a focus on education and awareness, our goal is to help control the dog population in Manitoba by providing tools and resources necessary to practice proper pet guardianship. Our vision is to support, education and advocate change within Manitoba to help alleviate the overpopulation of dogs and treat them wtih value and respect. Because every dog deserves to live the DREAM.
