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.

Male Husky Mix
Talo is originally from Inuvik, where he was picked up as a part of a large pack of roaming dogs. He was adopted out of the Trail SPCA 5 years ago and has been with a family since.
Recently, Talo escaped from his yard and killed a neighborhood cat. To appease neighbors and protect Talo, the family decided to rehome him.
He is a large boy, with likely some wolf content. Talo is very gentle with people and a giant couch cuddler in the home. He has high prey drive and has attacked skunks and raccoons in the past as well.
Talo loves his walks but needs to stay on leash as he has poor recall and a stubborn streak. Our hope for him is a home with either a large fenced property or multiple walks a day - he loves the snow and can get overheated in a house so a safe outside space is a bonus.
Pictures don't do this boy justice - he is a beautiful dog!

Male GSD-Husky Mix
Dogs: Mostly good
Loki is currently at a boarding facility in Alberta. He arrived there in dire condition - his allergies went untreated for so long that he was thin, his hair was falling out, and his ears were enflamed. After running an allergen panel, it was discovered that he is allergic to many food items and also environmental factors. He will need a home that can monitor his food intake as well as administer daily medication.
Loki is a senior boy who is very loyal and will stick around his property when not leashed. He loves people but isn't interested in dogs. He gets along with most, except dominant males. He will be happiest in a home where he has lots of room to run, like a farm or acreage.
This is a cross-post - this dog is not in HEART care and adoption arrangements would be made through the family that is caring for him.
