About us

RuffMutts is a pet food and supply store that opened its first location in Niverville, MB in 2018. Our Niverville location is complete with a private pet self-wash room and grooming services. We have since opened a retail store in Altona and Morden. Morden offers a pet self-wash and grooming services as well. RuffMutts was built out of the passion for finding quality, healthy ingredients for our own pets at affordable prices.

At RuffMutts we are dedicated to helping our pet parents “feed better for less”, offering quality foods for every budget. Nutrition is a key element to our pets living their best lives and we are to help pet parents make the best decisions for their pets. Every product we bring in is researched for quality and ingredients. If we won’t give it to our pets, we won’t sell it to yours!

Each of our stores often participate in fundraisers for local dog parks and rescues to help improve services or acquire care for rescue animals in need.
