Our Rescued Cats: Before and After

Virden Pet Network is a small town pet rescue and registered charity based in Virden, Manitoba, Canada, and serving Southwestern Manitoba. 

We have no shelter building or paid staff, instead managing day to day operations out of our homes. Pets are cared for in volunteer foster homes until their adoption. We provide comprehensive veterinary care including mandatory spay / neuter and vaccinations.

We also advocate in the community for responsible pet ownership, humane education, and compassion towards all animals.

Virden Pet Network was formed in 2007 by Virden neighbors  Heather Reimer (far left) and Bev Bailey (2nd from left). We have since been joined by rescue manager Kathy Heaman (2nd from right) and fundraising coordinator Margaret James (far right).

Virden Pet Network became a registered charity under the Canada Revenue Agency in 2008, which means we are accountable to the federal governement and we can provide tax receipts to donors.  

The organization relies entirely on donations and fundraising efforts for operating funds. 95% of our budget goes towards veterinary care, food and supplies for the pets in rescue. Learn more about how we manage your donations here
