Yard sale for deals and dogs
Manitoba Great Pyrenees Rescue, a 100 per cent volunteer-based, non-profit organization that has been in operation since 1996, will hold its Giant Rescue Yard Sale Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Park City West Community Centre, 115 Sanford Fleming Rd.
The organization has received many donations of furniture, books, clothing, toys, home decor, kitchenware, sportswear and so much more.
All year long the Manitoba Great Pyrenees Rescue raises funds to help pay for the expenses associated with rescuing furry companions. Medical care is a big expense, so when animals receive ongoing treatment or are in critical care, the expenses can be extraordinary.
