It took us a while in rescue work to realize that we were doing much more than just finding homes
for worthy dogs. We were impacting the lives of people as well. Whether it be their companionship, blind faith, love, joy,
or absolute devotion these dogs share a rare relationship with those who love them. The dogs inspire as as well. I have come
to believe that when you rescue a dog, it rescues you right back.
GORD KIDD, SINGER-SONGWRITER
A song was written for
Moosonee Puppy Rescue by a dear man who has adopted three of our dogs. His name is Gord Kidd and he performs
the song in a way that speaks for all dogs in need. It is sung while pictures of dogs and pups
we have rescued over the years slide by. The video can will move you beyond tears.
I have included the lyrics below and I thank Gord for one of the most meaningful
gifts we have ever received.
Can you see me, I'm hiding from cruel hands
and eyes. Can you find me, I'm alone and I don't know why. Why would you hurt me, why would you leave me, what
will be my end? Can you feel me, I'm hurting - I need you in my life. I promise
that I'll love you, I'll stay by your side. I will ask for just a little but I'll
give you my whole heart. Please stand by me, see through my eyes, I'll love you
from the start. I will ask for just a little but I'll give you my whole heart. Please stand by me, see through
my eyes, I'll love you from the start. Can you hear me, softly crying, from a life all alone? Can you know
the pain I'm feeling, I have no where to call home. All I want, all I'll ever need
is your love to help me cope. Thank you rescue people, your love gives me hope. Thank you rescue people, your love gives me hope. Thank you rescue people, you
brought me home.

An icy birth in Attawapiskat leaves a tangle of tan and brown
fur Unowned, known only by its warmth
Brown eyes of a puppy narrow with parting both too soon and
soon enough The lens blurs through clouds and rails Absorbs something in cages and crates
What does an
innocent memory hold?
These eyes shine an inner darkness an outer light Hailstorms and harmony
Now this pup sits thawing in my kitchen Hot sunbeams identify his colours
Zephyr`s gaze has a
Looking at me looking at him.
"There is nothing more grateful than a rescued dog"
