Congratulations to Janice Cournoyer, the winner of our Share the Joy giveaway! Janice took home $500 and proudly presented an additional cheque for $500 to Manitoba Mutts Dog Rescue.

Manitoba Mutts is a local charity dedicated to creating a better life for dogs and cats who have been abandoned, abused, or surrendered. By connecting these animals with loving foster families, Manitoba Mutts ensures they receive the care they need until they are ready to be adopted.

Janice is a huge animal lover who lights up just talking about her own dog, a chocolate Labrador named Leroy Brown. She knows that, across the province, many cats and dogs are in need of a safe and caring home, especially during this harsh winter.

“Many abandoned dogs have been dumped in my front yard,” says Janice who lives on a farm near Lorette, Manitoba.

Without hesitation, Janice takes these dogs in and does everything she can to find them permanent homes and caring families. She knows just how much a loving home can help these animals thrive, not to mention the sheer joy an animal can bring to a home.

Janice was so excited to present this donation to Manitoba Mutts and knows it will go on to help many animals in need find the home and family they deserve.
