In 2023, we continue to tirelessly rescue, care for and find loving homes for dear Miniature Pinchers, MinPin mixes and other small dogs under 20lbs. You won't generally see many available dogs on our website here, as intakes and trial adoptions have been moving at a rather rapid pace over the past year or so. Our all-volunteer team is very experienced and efficient! The first step is for you to submit an application and we will contact you within 48 hrs and start the process of matching you with an available doggie who looks suited to your needs/family. We look forward to hearing from you very soon!
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
