MMDR has been busy!

The holiday season is a lot of fun, but it also tends to be a busy time of year.  And this holiday season is no exception for Manitoba Mutts! 

On December 1st, we started our December Drive to 25 adoptions … which we’re just about half way there, and it’s only December 9th! For each adoption, we’ll be hanging a stocking on the website, so check back daily to see how close we are to reaching our goal. 

Just last Sunday we held our first Christmas Party – and it was a great success!  We loved seeing so many Mutts Alumni all grown up. Thanks to everyone for supporting the party and celebrating a successful first year of rescue. 

Wednesday, December 7th was double-duty.  We kicked it off by featuring Phil in the 12 Dogs of Christmas.  Every day up to December 18th we’ll be featuring a new dog. Visit the 12 Dogs of Christmas to read today’s featured dog’s letter to Santa. 

That same day, CTV Morning Live’s Eleanor Coopsammy came down to learn more about our volunteers and what the organization is all about.  Eleanor got to meet Peanut, Boomer and Lefty.  Tune in to CTV Morning Live on Tuesday, December 13th to check us out! 

On Thursday, The Winnipeg Sun’s Doug Lunney interviewed MMDR about our Drive to 25.  Catch us in his column early next week. 

And the month isn’t nearly over – we still have nine more dogs of Christmas, 15 more adoptions to reach our goal, and an adoption fair on December 18th to boot!  Lots of exciting things going on, so be sure to keep an eye on our Facebook page and on our website to keep up. 

Thanks for your continued love and support – we couldn’t do it without you!
