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 -

Moosonee Puppy Rescue

June 25, 2014 | Waldorf and Astoria


Piper has been adopted and is doing fantastically well. Her new brother Bravo/Champ was adopted from us as well so we know all are in good hands and paws. Piper has progressed beautifully and we could not be more proud of her.

The pups pictured above are Waldorf and Astoria and they just came down today. The sisters are orphan pups and were found wandering the dirt streets of Attawapiskat. Somehow, they made their way to our rescue worker's house and they were scared, confused and hungry. How long they had been hiding in wood piles or under houses we don't know but at just five weeks of age they were given the responsibility of surviving without even understanding what life was yet. I often wonder if, as they roam, they are simply searching for a safe place or for their mom. Northern dogs are hardy and smart and they may just know when not to look back but to face forward only. They are six weeks old now and will be available for adoption in two weeks.

Two young adults arrived today as well and one of them is yet another chocolate lab from the great breeding fiasco. Moose (he actually prefers "Moosey" being whispered to him) is pictured below. He was from the first litter born last summer and he was given to a family member who neglected him terribly. He would go days without food or water and he rarely, if ever, knew a kind or gentle touch. He is small for a lab because of his poor beginnings but we will make up for that with love, care and healthy food. Moose does not hold a grudge of any kind. He simply wants to get started with his "real" life. When he was in rescue care near Timmins he proved himself a worthy boy when he alerted the family to the fact that their young, two year old son, had left the house in the early hours of the morning without anyone knowing. When his foster mom looked out the window after hearing Moose's frantic barking she saw him shaking his head in agitation and pawing at his pen to get out. When she let her own dogs out they went running past the young boy and into the bush but when Moose was let out he ran to sit by the boy and didn't leave his side again. The family lives on water and the ending to this story could have been tragic rather than a heroic tale of a dog doing what dogs do so well - protecting and caring for those he loves. We are all fortunate that such superior beings love us the way they do. That is one reason we owe it to them to do all we can to keep them safe and a second spay/neuter clinic in Attawapiskat this August will help to do just that if we all give and do our part. We are grateful to Bissell for all they have done for us and will continue to do.

SPRING FUNDRAISER A SUCCESS
My thanks to all who contributed to a wonderful evening of sparkling white lights and dogs. So many came out to hear the presentation, bid on the silent auction, donate, eat, drink and be merry. We raised money for our general veterinary expenses but now must put a push on for the Spay/Neuter Clinic to be held in Attawapiskat in August. Every dollar matters and I ask those of you who have not yet contributed to do so now and for those who enjoyed donating in the past to please do it again. We can change the lives of dogs one spay or neuter at a time and who doesn't want to be part of that! My thanks in advance and please enjoy the Spring Fundraiser photos below courtesy of Photographer Yvonne Bootheroyd.
