Lakeridge Giant Breed Rescue and Sanctuary

A non-profit, 100% donation based dog rescue dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of giant breed companion dogs.

Lakeridge takes pride at the time and effort we put into our dogs. We fully ensure that whichever dog, no matter the history, is placed in a home that suits him best and at the same time, we ensure the adopting family receives a dog that meets their requirements as well.

Founders, Grant & Kim Best have opened their home to welcome dogs from all regions since March, 2013. For every dog who comes to Lakeridge, Grant & Kim do a complete evaluation on the dog. With the help of our dedicated fosters, they then place these dogs so that they are exposed to new surroundings and are continually faced with new challenges.

Although a smaller rescue, Lakeridge is proud to help families find quality dogs.

All adoptions require an application with references, home visit and adoption fee of $300. Puppies require an additional deposit of $100, refundable upon completion of all vaccinations and spay/neuter. Our adoption fee includes:

* DA2PP vaccination (series of 3 for puppies)
* Rabies vaccination
* Heartworm test (for adults)
* Spay/Neuter & tattoo

We generally do not process out-of-town adoptions as scheduling home visits, meetings and transport can be an issue. If you are outside Manitoba and are interested in one of our dogs, please email us at and we can check to see if we have contacts in your area.
