Introduction to the Rescue
Cupcakes Pommy & Friends Rescue and Rehabilitation is a foster-based rescue organization located in Winnipeg Manitoba.
We are committed to helping rescue, rehabilitate and rehome dogs in need of care. Dogs come to us through rescue or retirement from dog farming, back yard breeding operations, owner surrenders, the international dog meat trade industry and other situations where dogs may be at risk.
Our rescue is founded on some basic principles: kindness, respect, and non-oppressive practice. Kindness to all living creatures great and small, respect for one another, those we care for and the world around us and ensuring we take a non-oppressive approach in our care of the dogs we are entrusted with in our rescue.
We do not have a shelter but support our dogs through a network of foster homes.
Cupcakes is a not for profit rescue group registered with the Province of Manitoba. Cupcakes operates solely through volunteers, financial donations, various fundraising efforts and through the sale of items created through Cupcakes Creations.
Gizmo is his name. What he does best? Be awesome!
He needs understanding, patience and prefers females.
Winston is the most loyal dog who will be a great dog for someone who wants a loyal companion and best friend.
Lili is sweet gentle and just needs a loving patient home with a companion dog to be her friend and help her feel braver.
Covid 19 Update - May 18, 2020
Cupcakes Pommy & Friends Rescue and Rehabilitation is committed to following all public health requirements in order to support safety and health of our volunteers, adopters and supporters and ultimately our planet.
We are proceeding with some adoptions where we can use outdoor visits maintaining social distancing and video home visits and interviews with prospective adopters. We will not proceed with an adoption where we are not fully confident we can make a well informed decision using these methods. It is a more complex approach than the traditional home visits and meet and greets however we are confident that our adopters who are a good match for our dogs will share our commitment to ensuring the dog is a good match for them and they for the dog.
For fundraising efforts we will only focus on activities where we can do contactless payment through e-transfer and no contact pick ups with appropriate time between pick ups to allow for cleaning of any mailboxes/door handles etc.
At Cupcakes Pommy & Friends Rescue we are committed to kindness, respect and compassion for all. We hope our approach to this pandemic will be reflective of our overall approach in rescue.
Take care & be safe,
Shan, Darlene, Suzanne & Phyl
