FOR ANYONE THINKING THIS IS FAKE BELOW IS THE MESSAGE RECEIVED FROM LINDA ECCLES, PRESIDENT OF THE BEAUFORT DELTA REGIONAL SPCA:

From: gleccles@northwestel.net
To:
Subject: Re: Candidacy consent form
Date: Tue, 29 Mar 2011 15:07:38 -0600

“All our contacts for dogs have come to a hault!!!!! They are all full they are short foster homes and dogs are not moving. Yellowknife and Pawsitive match in Alberta.

do you have any connection I can call??”

A message to the individual from one unknown group that accused this urgent request for help as being FAKE… how about you do your research!!!  Go through the archives on this Blog and view the very graphic pictures submitted by Ms. Eccles which are posted here.  This is what this dedicated woman deals with all the time!  She recently had to contend with a Parvo outbreak and was without a vet for months!!

How dare this one person make such a false accusation!!!

Anyone, rescue group, shelter, or humane society that has room to take rescued pups and dogs out of Inuvik you are asked to contact Linda Eccles at the email address as shown in the above email

Linda has advised me that Dog Packs are forming and on the move, looking for females, spring is a bad time of year, a lot of unwanted pups are going to be born.  Inuvik as do some NT communities does have a shoot to kill policy when the numbers of animals becomes unmanageable.  The municipally owned and operated animal holding facility can only take in approx 10 animals, if they can not be relocated, if owners do not claim them or if they cannot be adopted out, then ….you get the picture.  The Beaufort Delta Regional SPCA does not have it’s own shelter.

The NWTSPCA does not have it’s own shelter and boards rescues at a kennel, they cannot take in anymore.  The Hay River shelter cannot take in anymore either and are also looking for foster homes.

Northern Canada is not equipped the same as the rest of Canada, no real shelters, only one established vet hospital in Yellowknife and a small vet clinic in Inuvik.   A travelling vet from Alberta comes to Hay River for only a few days once a month, nearby remote communities and Fort Smith receive his services.

Critically sick or injured animals must be flown to Yellowknife or travel by ferry, communities closest to Alberta must make a 4-5 hour drive to the Alberta vet.   Alot of owners cannot afford these expenses for travel costs, hence a lot of animals die.  Unwanted pups are dumped, abandoned, dogs are left to starve to death and are tied with muzzles taped and shot.  See picture of one such poor dog in Fort McPherson: picture provided by Linda.

Linda found this animal still alive and frozen to the floor of his wooden doghouse!!

Again to the individual who claims all this is fake SHAME ON YOU!  HOW DARE YOU!!!

A dear friend who founded C4P (Cause for Paws) included this in her newsletter.

This is a wonderful video that honors Pitbulls.  A breed so feared due only to the mass publicity surrounding a specific breed exploited in the Dog Fighting rings.  This VICTIM has proven itself time and time again NOT to be the mindless killer that the public thinks.

Other breeds such as German Shepherds, Rotties, Dobermans and Mastiffs have received bad reputations, yet for those who have shared their homes with these devoted and loyal breeds, we know this reputation to be untrue.

Remember, even a Teacup Poodle can become vicious if treated inhumanely with cruelty and neglect.

There is no such thing as a BAD DOG,

the reality is that there are BAD OWNERS.

For decades caring Canadians and peoples across the Globe have voiced their disgust and anger that Canada continues to slaughter these totally defenseless seals.  Instead of actually listening to this protest the Canadian Government continues to embarrass and humiliate Canadian Citizens by allowing this heinous practice to continue.

More pressure MUST be put upon the Canadian Government to end this now.  All elected officials are dependent upon the votes of their constituents in order to keep their jobs.  An Election is looming…..get the point.

Please take the time to protest the senseless slaughter of Coyotes in Ontario for no other reason than BLOOD SPORT!!

Ontario Minister is considering LEGALIZING this ILLEGAL game of DEATH!!!  It takes a real HERO to stroke their own EGO by killing helpless and defenseless animals!!!

ACTION ALERTS

Minister considering approving Coyote slaughter: Your help is desperately needed to put an end to the thousands of coyotes who die an agonizing death in steel jaw traps or who are shot and left to die in fields. At this time of the year, many of the females killed have newborn pups that are left to starve to death.  A News and Opinion column has been added to www.wildlifeontario.ca so that you can keep abreast of new developments on the campaign.  All this carnage for the ‘sporting pleasure’ and ‘bragging rights’ of hunters. Contact Ontario Wildlife Coalition:   http://wildlifeontario.ca/content/action/actionalert/Stop-Coyote-Killing-Contests/index2.html
