Grateful Friends Animal Rescue is a foster-based and 100% volunteer run rescue in Manitoba that was founded in April 2020. Most of our foster homes are in Winnipeg but we do have multiple fosters in surrounding communities. Being a volunteer run rescue we rely on donations and fundraising to be able to pay off vet bills so we can continue to help as many animals as possible. If you have ever thought about fostering or volunteering with our rescue please visit the "How You Can Help" tab for more information. 



Our mission is to rescue animals from all different situations, provide them with needed veterinary care, love, and find them their forever homes.
