Rescue Groups We Support

Whyte Ridge Veterinary Hospital works closely with organizations that rescue, assist, rehome, and rehab animals. We believe in giving back to the community and helping those animals that are in need of our care to the fullest of our ability. It's not always simple or easy, but the rewards are enormous. Please take a moment to discover the following organizations and their amazing work:

Prairie Wildlife Rehabilitation

The goal of this non-profit is to rehabilitate wildlife that has sustained injuries or been orphaned and needs treatment to be able to survive in the wild. They cater to a large range of species such as owls, falcons, woodchucks, turtles, foxes, bobcats, and many, many more. Our exotics veterinarian, Dr. Davidson, takes pleasure in providing medical care for their often-unique animals and improving their chances of returning to their natural habitat. Over the years, we've seen many interesting cases and gained an appreciation for all the wonderful work they do.

Hi-Speed Hounds Greyhound Rescue & Adoption Inc.

Hi-Speed Hounds is Winnipeg's largest greyhound rescue and a longtime client. Greyhounds are easy-going, loving dogs that all too often are taken advantage of for racing and breeding purposes without the benefit of a caring, stable home. After a few years their competition lives end, and all of them end up needing a good home. Hi-Speed Hounds collects these long-legged treasures and rehomes them using a thorough vetting and adoption process. Most of these dogs remain patients of ours for the rest of their adopted lives, and we love to see their progress as they settle in with their new families.
