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 - 

NOVEMBER 10, 2014 | RUTH IS MY GIRL

We have seven dogs of our own in total. They all came to us for a reason - either they needed us or we needed them. Ruth came to me ten years ago when I was very ill and spent most of my days in bed. Even though Ruth was just three months old and her sister and other pups played downstairs, Ruth chose to stay on the bed with me. Each time she rested her head gently on my shoulder I was able to fall asleep. The health scare of ten years ago turned out to be false but Ruth and I were joined in a way that only we could truly appreciate.

MOOSONEE PUPPY RESCUE


Once again, Ruth has been by my side and comforted me through the recovery and pain of my knee surgery. When her head rests on my shoulder I once again relax, give into the pain and sleep as only a woman with a guardian angel watching over her can.

I thank all of you who sent cards and well wishes and just knowing how many people were thinking of me helped greatly. I was not awake through the surgery as I was told I might be and that was an enormous relief but the fire alarm did go off as I walked, pushing my IV pole, to the operating room. Not an especially good omen for things to come. A student nurse forgot to give me my pain meds throughout the first night after surgery so when the pain block wore off I felt as if I had been thrown under a subway car and could feel it running over my leg. The pain was immense and the first rule of recovery was broken - to stay ahead of the pain. I channeled many dogs that day as I remembered the ones who had suffered terribly but still remained stoic and courageous. I failed miserably at emulating them but just thinking of all the dogs we have known and saved was soothing and distracting. I am well on my way to recovery now though and while I am greatly limited in what I can do I will still stand at the upcoming "Winter Dogs" fund-raiser and speak on the dogs behalf once again. It will be a great day and I hope to see many, many people there.  

MOOSONEE PUPPY RESCUE

We have five pups with us now (Degrees, below is one of them) and twenty-one more are expected to come down as soon as we have room for them. There are two young adult females waiting as well. Please keep watching our web site and Petfinder as I will post them and tell their stories as soon as I can. Winter is harsh up north and while the dogs are prepared to suffer through the elements I am not willing to extend their stay a day longer than necessary.

UPCOMING NEWS & EVENTS
 

WINTER DOGS EVENT
Sunday November 16, 2014 | 2pm - 5pm | TICKETS $20
Riverwalk Upstairs
1 Manitoba St. Bracebridge, ON


MOOSONEE PUPPY RESCUEWe are pleased to invite you to the Winter Dogs fundraiser this year. The date is Sunday November 16, 2014, 2pm - 5pm, Riverwalk Upstairs 1 Manitoba St. Bracebridge. Tickets are $20.

This event was created in order to raise money for the dogs we are expecting to come down from up north.  The weather is harsh in the isolated communities these dogs live in with temperatures reaching 40 degrees below zero F. All the dogs are at far greater risk this time of year as they are left outside to fend for themselves in the elements.

Moosonee Puppy Rescue has achieved a great deal over the past year - we have accomplished two spay/neuter clinics.  We would very much like to share, with our supporters, pictures of Attawapiskat, the dogs who roam and the few people who help them. We have never had such personal insight before.

This will be a celebration and a gathering of like-minded people who believe they can make a difference in the lives of many. Finger foods, a bar and the opportunity to purchase meaningful Christmas cards and gifts will complete the day. I truly do hope to see you there.

PURCHASE YOUR TICKETS FOR THE WINTER DOGS FUNDRAISER HERE!
