In 2022 and 2023, we continue to tirelessly rescue, care for and re-home miniature pinchers and other small dogs in need.
The Minpinerie is a non-profit Ottawa-based made up of dedicated dog-loving volunteers who specialize in the rescue and foster of Miniature Pinschers. We rescue dogs that have been surrendered by their owners, willingly released by puppy mills or breeders, or abandoned in shelters. We also rescue, with priority, other small breed dogs in situations of peril or abuse. In addition, the Minpinerie assist women with dogs who must exit a domestic abuse situation by providing long-term or short-term fostering. The Minpinerie also supports families that have to permanently surrender their miniature pinscher or small dog because of changing dynamics
