Before the Bridge Senior K9 Rescue is a volunteer operated, registered charity located in Stony Mountain, Manitoba. We rescue senior dogs in need that have been surrendered, neglected or dumped in a pound and help them to find permanent, loving homes to live out their days. Every dog rescued by BTBSK9 Rescue is rescue protected, from the moment they come to us until they cross the rainbow bridge.

We place dogs with loving foster families, who care for the dogs until they find their forever homes. The foster families and volunteers are the foundation of Before the Bridge and we couldn’t operate without them. We are always looking for fosters and are happy to work with you to find a dog that would fit you home. If you are at all interested, we invite you to find out more about being a foster and to fill out our foster application.

RESCUE UPDATE: You will notice that very few dogs are being posted under our adoptable seniors album. Because of the Virus we have had to cancel a number of our larger fund raising events. We fund raise to pay for vetting of our senior dogs. So we have had to be mindful of how many dogs we can bring in and how many we can afford to vet. Of late we have brought in dogs who are high demand in being hypoallergenic and they are adopted before I post them. Explaining the shortage of dogs available listed in our Adoptable Seniors Album. Thank you for your continuted support and we are hoping we will know what the new normal is sooner than later. In the meantime enjoy your summer.
