OUR PROJECTS

Chase

Remember Chase?  He broke his 2 front legs and needed surgery to recover and your donations went towards helping with his vet care.  We are so proud to have clients who are so generous to help other dog owners who need help.

Teddie

Teddie visited us today for some belly rubs and to accept the money we raised for her vet bills.  Our wonderful clients raised $530.00 through our prize wheel and The dog Loft matched it for a grand total of $1060.00!  Teddie is such a brave and loving girl despite the rough start she has had.

Rusty

We had the absolute pleasure of meeting this handsome man today!  His name is Rusty, he is 17 years old and just retired from a long career as a volunteer therapy dog at St Boniface Hospital.  Him and his lovely owners have spent 3 days a week at the hospital since 2010 bringing comfort and happiness to patients and staff alike.  One Doctor said that Rusty always made a difference in his mood after a stressful day.  This shows you how much a dog can change someone's life and how powerful the unconditional love of a dog is!

Miracle

Look at this little Miracle!  We are proud to say that because of all you dog loving peeps, we were able to raise $1350.00 for this little lady.  A huge thank you to Snap Fitness(Wpg-St Vital) for donating $500.00!

Oreo

In July, this sweet gentle soul got attacked in the back lane.  We are so thankful that this horrible incident didn’t dim his shine!  Once he recovered, his wonderful momma booked him in for a spa day and our lovely groomers, Leslie and Melody, treated him to a morning of pampering while the rest of the PPIO team all chipped in and spoiled him with a bag full of treats and bones!  Thank you for letting us love on you Oreo!  You deserve it after all you have been through!

Petey

For those of you who don't know, Petey was brutally attacked in his own home during a break in.  So we teamed up with some local businesses and people who share the lave same love and compassion for dogs to put together one amazing package because he deserves it!

A huge thank you goes out to the wonderful donations of treats and toys from Antler World and Pet valu on Goulet, to Royce Finley from Royal LePage and Chink the Barber for donating to Petey's vet care, and to the wonderful team at Transcona Vet for caring for Petey in such an awful time.  It is absolutely AMAZING how we can all come together  as a community and spread happiness, love and wagging tails.  

Jax

Jax had a rough couple months with 2 TPLO surgeries, but he’s a trooper and pulled through!  A very kind person submitted him for the project and we decided to put together a care package full of puzzle toys, treats, and chews to help keep his brain busy while he was on restricted activity.  We hope you enjoy the package and heal up fast Jax!

Cooter

This is Cooter!  He was running around his backyard, when he had been attacked and stabbed in the nose by an intruder.  He was rushed to the vet, and received stitches.  Today, they caught the man that hurt this sweet gentle giant, so we decided to surprise him and spoil him with a gift basket!  We had the privilege of meeting Cooter, and all we can say is he made our hearts melt!  He’s such a loving, smart, and polite gentleman of a dog!  Everyone at The Dog Loft wishes you a super speedy recovery Cooter, Keep that tail wagging!

Cuddles

Meet Cuddles.  Her lovely owner has been dealing with medical issues and was unable to get Cuddles groomed.  Her daughter reached out to the dog community asking for help and our lovely Erica volunteered to give cuddles some much needed pampering!  We completely understand that everyone goes through hard time and we always love to help out when we can.

Sully

Everyone meet Sully!  This handsome man is a hero.  He was out for a walk when he started pulling his mom off the trail.  She thought that he was trying to play, but actually he was leading her to an unconscious man.  An elderly man had fallen and was in the snow, and thanks to Sully’s skilled snoot, his mom was able to get some help!  He really is a hero and we thought that he deserved some recognition.  He came to The Loft and was so happy to see everyone, and we were so happy to see him!  We hope you enjoy the new bed and the toys, and we hope you display your plaque with pride!

Krista

Krista has been an absolute blessing to the canine and feline communities in way that you can't even begin to imagine.  She truly has a heart of gold when it comes to animals.  She has five dogs that she never gave up on through rescue and still continues to foster difficult cases.  So as a thank you to you Krista and all that you have done for rescue animals and never losing hope in cases where most find hopeless, we are so proud to choose you as our first recipient of The Dog Lofts's new adventure, The Paws Pass It On Project.  Krista received a gift certificate for a weekend get away for her dogs so she herself can go relax somewhere without any worry and recharge her batteries.  She deserves it!

Kooper

Kooper is a rescue dog who came from a bad environment. At first Kooper was afraid of me, his tail tucked between his legs, ears down and very timid towards me. He quickly grew to love me, and I did the same. It was like taking in a sick dog and turning him into a beautiful well-respected dog. Kooper likes chasing rabbits and quite often, is very obedient. Kooper's best friend is a cat named Dublin. Dublin was adopted by our neighbours but is always there for Kooper!

In August 2020 I took my sweet boy Kooper for a walk to Lord Roberts Community Center. I was able to let him off the leash to play fetch. As soon as Kooper was off the leash he took off to which I then realized he was chasing a rabbit. I got quite worried when I was calling his name and I couldn’t hear his dog tags. Shortly after Kooper came running back and to my surprise I saw a big gash which was 2 feet long and 8 inches wide. Kooper is known to try and hop over any fence he has in sight; keep in mind he is only 2 feet tall. When there is a rabbit involved no fence is too high to try. Thankfully we got Kooper to the vet and he received the treatment needed to heal properly. I’m hopeful Kooper has learnt his lesson and we have many more years together.
