The Boston Terrier and Pug Rescue of Southern Manitoba (BTPRSM) was founded in 2009. We operate as an all-volunteer based group and run strictly on donations. Our volunteers are dedicated to rescuing Pugs, Boston Terriers and their mixes from shelters, breeders and individuals and finding them forever homes. In the last couple of years, specifically at the end of 2013, we also became involved in rescuing Basset Hounds.

We do not have a physical shelter that you can visit. All of our dogs are fostered in volunteer’s homes until they find their new safe, happy and FOREVER home.

The Boston Terrier and Pug Rescue of Manitoba serves the province of Manitoba. We do not ship our rescues – however, we will consider an out of province adoption if the application is suitable and we are able to find someone in your city/town to conduct a home visit on our behalf, and assuming that should your application be approved, you would drive to Winnipeg to pick the dog up.

 Mission statement

  • To rescue Boston Terriers and Pugs that are unwanted, homeless mistreated and/or neglected. We will address any medical, physical or behavioural issues each dog may have that caused him/her to be surrendered or abandoned.
  • To provide a solution to the problem of pet overpopulation by ensuring that every Boston Terrier and Pug available for adoption is spayed or neutered.
  • To provide education and assistance to those interested in adopting and to those who have adopted.
  • To provide each rescued Pug and Boston Terrier a loving home environment in foster care until a happy, safe and FOREVER home is found.
