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 -

September 2, 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.

Boyce is now going into foster care in Toronto so he can become better socialized but I will miss this boy terribly as he has become a true love.

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 thirteen pups with us now that are all ready for adoption. There are twenty more in rescue care up north that are waiting to come down as well. Never dull and always grateful.

PHOTO EXHIBIT | SEPTEMBER, 2014
Yvonne Boothroyd volunteers her magnificent photographic talent to us on a regular basis. She captures the most wonderful images of the dogs that I have ever seen even though her specialty is landscape photography. The pups seem to know, instinctively what she is asking for and they give it to her.
We are now very proud to announce that Yvonnes's work is on exhibit at Timothy's, 327 Roncesvalles Ave. (Roncesvalles and Grenadier Rd), and you will be able to share the delight she sees through her camera during the entire month of September. Please give yourself the pleasure of dropping by if only for a few moments of serenity.
