About SAAR

The Steinbach and Area Animal Rescue is 100% volunteer-based, and is dedicated to helping animals.

Steinbach and Area Animal Rescue is a non-profit organization that has served the south east of Manitoba since 2013. Volunteers are the lifeline of the organization, which is committed to finding forever homes for abandoned, homeless, and surrendered companion animals.

The demand for intake grows as awareness of the rescue increases. Over the years, the rescue has supported many animals, but our space limitations and budgetary restrictions prevent us from helping all that are in need.

INTAKE NUMBERS

Intake Year vs Intakes

2024 (to date) 49 Cats, 15 Dogs
2023 304 Cats; 85 Dogs
2022 284 Cats; 29 Dogs
2021 271 Cats; 17 Dogs
2020 210

The rescue is fortunate to be supported by a diverse set of business owners who see the value of the rescue and generously commit to supplying medical aid, prescriptions, food, and other essential care items at a discount, as well as providing fundraising event sponsorship.
