Announcing Southwestern Manitoba Animal Rescue Team!

In 2020, Strays That Can't Pay Inc. underwent several changes including, but not limited to; recruitment of new volunteers, Board of Directors, and enhancing policies and procedures for intake, vetting, spay and neuter, assistance (owner assistance), foster program, food programs along with networking and establishing partnerships.


It was the team's desire to respect the hard work, dedication, and efforts put forth by the founder of Strays That Can't Pay Inc., hence the team developed a new name and to reflect the intentions moving forward of this organization.


The Southwestern Manitoba Animal Rescue Team (SMART) is dedicated to serving First Nations communities throughout southwestern Manitoba through relationships, fostering mutual respect, providing guidance on animal welfare, providing assistance through spay and neuter programs, as well as ensuring continuous food delivery, assistance to pet owners, and stray or abandoned animals.
