Recent Ice Rescue

April 20, 2018

Earlier this week our water rescue crews were dispatched for an animal rescue on an ice flow in the river.

Happy to report this incident had a happy outcome for the stranded pet.
The Winnipeg Humane Society took great care of this cat and because of an ear tattoo & micro chip, was reunited with its family.

***Update to Cat Rescue***
We have been informed by the Winnipeg Humane Society that the cat recently rescued on a Wpg waterway remains in their care.
The owners have been contacted by using its tattoo & ear chip, but the pet is still very stressed and requires further assessment and care.
