WELCOME
Moosonee Puppy Rescue officially began in May 2003. Once we knew of the conditions in so many northern communities we had to act. Our purpose became to save dogs from being trapped and shot in the isolated communities of Moosonee, Moose Factory, Attawapiskat, Fort Albany and Kashechewan.
 
- We have placed over 1000 dogs to date, and we are grateful to have known each one of them -

August 17, 2014 | Boyce AKA Edge


For those of you who were aware, or followed the ongoing saga of Edge's escape from foster care mid-July we would like to report that he is safely back with us and learning quickly how to accept adoration. Our "wlldish " dog Lady Rose is, however, leading him astray now and again and together they escape the fence but always return.

MOOSONEE PUPPY RESCUE

He ran away from his foster family the first morning he was there and actually made his way from the Horseshoe Valley area south to Barrie and his travels took just over a week. We thank all the people who were out looking for him and for the joy we all felt when he was found at a family's home on hwy # 27. He was tired and hungry but that is not what stopped him - it was his infatuation with the female dog of the household and since she was contained by an underground electric fence Edge stayed where she was. Eventually he entered their home and stayed until we could pick him up. We renamed him Boyce because up north he had always been referred to as Boy so we thought we would start fresh and begin again with Boyce. He is a wonderful boy who learns quickly and is now part of our pack. It was much easier for him to accept other dogs than it was people but I understand that attitude completely so we are making great progress.

Fiddle is improving slowly and remains the love of my life. His adoration makes facing the work of the other twenty-seven dogs we have here easier each morning. His brother Uke arrived a week ago, also with mange but not nearly as bad as Fiddles is. The two were happy to be reunited and grateful to be in a home where they are loved and taken care of. Uke is short for ukulele and he has the gaiety of the instrument in his personality.

Victory has healed and is now in foster care where she can receive the one-on-one attention she so deserves. She is up for adoption and her sweet spunk will charm everyone she meets.

We have a total of twenty-four puppies and I am getting to know each and every one of them and waiting for them to tell me their names. It can be a slow process but if I pay close attention I come to understand them and while often overwhelmed and exhausted they also inspire and encourage me. Astaire (below) danced right up to me to tell me his name and I must say he is quite a charmer.

MOOSONEE PUPPY RESCUE

Many dogs and pups are still waiting to come down and as much as the Spay/Neuter Clinic in Attawapiskat was a huge success the numbers will not slow for quite some time I am afraid. We are tired and worn but when I think of how the dogs suffer before they come to us I feel ashamed for wanting a rest or a break that would risk letting them down. I believe they wait for us so while we try to find a better pace we continue to take those in need. There is an excellent chance I have become "that crazed woman who lives in the bush with all those dogs" but at least I am not alone. I remain grateful for the dogs I have met and for the introductions still to come.

NEIGHBOURHOOD SAFETY + FUNFEST | SEPTEMBER 6, 2014

We are grateful to Master Mechanic's for including us in an event that will benefit both our rescue organization and Redwood Women's Shelter. I think the day sounds wonderful and we invite all our supporters to come out and join us in what can only be a fulfilling experience. We will have some puppies with us that are up for adoption and I think the more people who have their faces painted like dogs the better. Come play!

The Third Annual Reunion | SEPTEMBER 20, 2014
MOOSONEE PUPPY RESCUEMilford Bay Community Centre  
Noon-4 PM | TICKETS $20
 
This year the reunion will be held on September 20, 2014. It is the best event of the year as it is a time when northern dogs gather, most unknown to one another, and blend as a proud pack. With approximately sixty dogs and one hundred people in attendance, we have not had one altercation or incident with the dogs and the owners are able to stand back full of pride and delight while watching their dogs being better behaved than many of them would have imagined. Stories are swapped, people discover they didn't get the only best dog  and new friends are made. You are able to meet your dog's litter mates and moms if in attendance or simply the dogs that came down together as pups and who depended on one another.
 
This year we are adding a garage sale to the event to help raise money for Mercy, the injured dog who was flown out after the recent Spay/Neuter Clinic.
 
The event is held rain or shine because it is at the Milford Bay Community Centre (just outside Bracebridge off hwy 118) so we have the indoors as well as an outdoor fenced area and a free run area for those dogs that actually understand and respond to recall. We have a BBQ and just a wonderful day built around the dogs.
 
Tickets are $20 each for people and dogs are free of charge. They will receive a bandanna with the name I gave them as well as their new name so matching up kin and friends is easy.
 
If you would like to attend just email me and we will get you registered and all set. This truly is a wonderful day and I urge everyone to make themselves feel better just by attending.
- Sharron
