Anyone that has had the opportunity to adopt an abused or neglected dog will understand what a powerful thing it is. Seeing them transform into a confident and joyful pet will absolutely fill your heart.
These moments of growth are matched only by the devotion they will show you when they come to understand you are their hero and have given them life.
We understand families are having a difficult time finding rescue dogs to adopt. Due to the pandemic, many FN communities are not allowing front line rescues to collect unwanted dogs. Many rescues who work with high kill shelters in the US and overseas are clearly struggling to transport animals in need. They are still out there, and they still need our help. Please be patient and do not turn to backyard breeders, who are taking advantage of this situation to exploit their animals.
If you are flying from a remote or northern community and can escort an animal, please reach out to the local shelter.
