Manitoba Underdogs Rescue — dog-loving rescue and happy insurance client

Manitoba Underdogs Rescue (MUR) is a 100% foster and volunteer-based dog rescue. Its goal is to find loving homes for Manitoba’s unwanted dogs. They also host subsidized and free spay and neuter clinics to help control the stray animal population in remote Manitoba communities. On top of that, MUR runs outreach clinics to teach kids how to properly care for and respect animals, vaccinate strays and feed a LOT of hungry homeless animals. MUR is also a happy client of Brio Insurance.

Why did you choose Brio Insurance? What keeps you as a client?

Our relationship started with Sunova Credit Union and has since moved to include Brio Insurance as well. We were the lucky recipient of funds from the 2016 Sunova Golf Classic and that changed the whole trajectory of our organization. Sunova’s generosity and support was huge, and we couldn’t be more grateful. Brio Insurance is just like its parent company  — they’re helpful and kind and always willing to work with us to find solutions for our tight budget. We know that they have our back and we love supporting such a wonderful organization.

Who do you deal with the most at the office?

We deal with the St. Mary’s branch in particular. Smiling faces greet you as soon as you walk through the door and it’s lovely. 

What makes Brio Insurance different?

Insurance companies aren’t known for being fun or friendly, but Brio is both. They take the time to discuss our options and explain the whole process. Insurance isn’t scary when you have all of the information. Plus, knowing that we have insurance options and that they’re not just trying to sell us the policy with the highest price tag makes a huge difference.

How Does Brio Insurance help support  MUR’s mission?

They always help us find great rates. We have insurance for the Sunova Canine Cruiser through them (MPI) and buy rental car insurance when we rent cargo vans to help with our rescue missions and clinics. They also sponsor our events, host adoption events for us, and collect donations. Brio’s support means the world to us!

How can you help Manitoba Underdogs Rescue?

Donating is always the #1 way you can help. We’re 100% donation-based so without our donors we can’t continue to help our furry friends. We always have fundraisers going as well, like the sale of our 2020 calendar (cute puppy pictures!) which is available at the following locations:

  • Brio Insurance 1033 St. Mary’s Road
  • Sunova Credit Union at 803 Leila Avenue
  • Sunova Credit Union in Whitemouth

If you have supplies you’d like to donate, the Brio Insurance in Beausejour is collecting donations for MUR December 2 – 13.

We’re also always looking for foster homes for our dogs. Because we don’t have a physical facility, all of our adoptable animals are hosted with loving families until they find their forever homes. We provide everything the animals need (food, kennels, toys), so all you do is provide the love that they need to learn to be family pets!
