What a great feeling to be able to fly into a very northern, very isolated First Nation community to provide such a much needed service.
We are so proud to announce we were able to fix 40 dogs and 2 cats who were owned, living in York Landing (York Factory First Nation). Not only did we fix these dogs, we vaccinated and dewormed everyone again, and provided ID tags and tattoos to everyone we did fix.
The community really showed us what it’s like to be loved and appreciated. These people fed us, stopped by to thank us and we had the most amazing conversations about current issues happening in their community. It’s wonderful to have first hand knowledge from community members living in these areas, to truly understand the issues they face daily.
From the Chief and Council to all the community members who took advantage of this much needed service-everyone was amazing. Our crew was tired by the end but it was a good tired. We had some minor setbacks but all and all it was an absolute success. So many unwanted pregnancies were prevented and we couldn’t be happier.
This initiative hit the $10 000 mark and we are still looking for donations to help recover the costs so we can continue to make a difference in these very isolated communities!! We feel we are truly changing the front lines of dog rescue and we are eager to help more isolated communities!
Donations can be made to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us directly.
We were able to rescue 8 deserving dogs and puppies as well. Those shipping costs were an additional $870 just to bring these dogs into Winnipeg. Please help us and make a donation.
Huge thanks to Dr. Jonas Watson, Brittney, Katie H., Josh, Tracy, Corinne, Ashley, the Chief and Council of York Landing, the community members who fed us, The Winnipeg Humane Society, Beavermondo Inc, The Dog Loft, The Handberg Family, Cats TNR and Rescue, Jacobs Trading, Clive Hickson, Don Rose, Pet Valu Madison, Meadowwood and Pembina and everyone who privately donated. We could not have done this without everyone.
