Penny's All-Breed Animal Rescue Inc. (PABAR) is a registered non-profit, volunteer-based, animal rescue. We are a foster based rescue and have animals located in and around the city of Winnipeg. Our sole focus is to rescue animals of various species and breeds from all over our great province of Manitoba. We take in animals (mostly dogs and cats) that have been abandoned, abused or surrendered at no fault of their own. We place them into loving foster homes where they are rehabilitated. Whether it is for health reasons, behavioral issues, neglect, or some much needed love and care, they stay with their foster family until are ready to find their forever homes through our adoption program.
PABAR consists of a handful of compassionate and dedicated volunteers. Our foster families are the Heroes who open their hearts and their homes to the animals in our rescue, and show them love, respect and kindness. For some of our rescue animals, this is the first time they have experienced love. Foster families give us the strength and passion to carry on doing what we do. We are always searching for foster families to add to our roster, and would welcome your inquiries and/or participation.
We recently achieved our charitable status. Our registered charity number is 72744 4721 RR0001. Any monetary donation of $20 or more is eligible for a tax-deductible receipt! All of our funding derives from donations, or from volunteer-backed fundraising events. Our financial records are fully documented, open and completely transparent.
PABAR, founded as a small entity by Penny Teron in November 2015, and was gathering steam by August 2016. Penny was seeing so many animals being passed over by other Rescues because they were full, that she decided to start her own small Rescue. We are pleased to say that since August 2016, we have been instrumental in saving and re-homing over 200 animals!! It is our hope, and intention, that we will be able to continue in this way and save many more!!
Due to the rapidly evolving situation of Covid-19, we have decided to change our adoption process indefinitely.
We have had a discussion between board members and feel that it would not be fair or responsible of us to expose our current fosters, volunteers, board members, or potential adopters to any unnecessary risk.
We hope you all understand the reasons for our decision. Each adoption will be processed case by case with the animal's best interest. We will be resorting to a virtual home check approach for the adoptions we feel can be finalized during this time. For ones that we feel need an in-person meet and greet and/or home check, they will remain as adoption pending until it is safe to resume in-person interaction. We will be informing each applicant of our new process as we contact them for routine application screenings.
We have also received a high volume of foster applications in the past couple of days. Thank you all so much for your foster applications!
At this time, we are very overwhelmed with processing these applications, and are only able to do so on an as needed basis. We currently only require foster homes for a few animals for which we will post specifically for on our social media. If you have submitted a foster application and can foster one of the animals we post about, please contact us.
We ask for patience during this time as our processing time will be significantly delayed compared to usual. Our priority right now is to ensure our current foster's have enough food and supplies for their foster animals during this time.
Thank you all so much for your patience and understanding during this time of uncertainty.
