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 1400 dogs to date and we are grateful to have known every single one of them.

TORONTO STAR SPOTLIGHT | Sean Wetselaar Staff Reporter, Published on Wed Apr 29 2015

"For one day only in cities across Canada, Uber will not just be a taxi service.

The company will be offering “puppies on demand” to residents of Toronto, Edmonton, Montreal and Ottawa Thursday, as part of National Adopt-A-Shelter-Pet Day.

In Toronto, Edmonton and Ottawa, residents can use the Uber app to order a dog’s company, using the “PUPPIES” option between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. The event starts in Montreal at noon.

The day is being run in partnership with 3 Million Dogs, an online site that raises awareness about dogs and rescues, which helped the taxi service get in touch with animal shelters in the various cities involved. Partners with the event include the Montreal SPCA, the Ottawa Dog Rescue, and the Moosonee Puppy Rescue."


NO HOT PETS CAMPAIGN | May 19 – August 31, 2015

Moosonee Puppy Rescue has been invited to join the award winning national No Hot Pets Campaign for 2015 to help create a stronger voice for animals. The campaign will run from May 19 – August 31, 2015.

The issue of owners leaving their pets in their vehicles during the hot summer months is a constant problem. Hundreds of reports are received daily, putting animals’ safety at risk and even in some cases, causing death.

The 2014 No Hot Pets campaign was a HUGE SUCCESS, with over 20 million online impressions and close to 12,000 people taking the online pledge. We expect this year’s campaign to be even bigger!
