Hello from Inuvik NT
My name is Linda Eccles I am the Executive Director for the BDR SPCA in Inuvik NT. We also try to help communities in the Beaufort Delta Area.
I’m writing to you today to see if you may be able to help in some way with a rescue of some dogs stuck in transit at foster homes and in pens etc in Yellowknife. I work close with Yellowknife SPCA who does take our animals when they can.
They in return send the dogs on to Foster care with a group called Pawsitive Match based in Edmonton. All appeared to be going well when all of a sudden things came to a grinding Holt. I have been told 160 I believe are stuck in foster care and have not been adopted.
Yellowknife SPCA has dogs in foster who are stuck as well and they need to get help for these dogs so they can accept a few from us.
They are unable to move any as Pawsitive Match appears to not be able to find homes as quick as we had though. A bit of a mess!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yellowknife is in a greater position to make a rescue happen if you are able to help they use First Air to send dogs out and they do use the radio and paper as a great tool for promotion.
We were thinking in terms of a Rescue from the North to your shelter as an in kind crusade if you have some room. Any help is better than none and we would make sure all details are responded to in a professional manner.
We may be able to get the Airline to provide some expense knocked of the flights but if you are in any way able to support flights in-kind that would be very helpful as Yellowknife is just in the middle of raising money for a shelter for the animals of the North. We will also be trying to raise money for them to get out.
Just a few ideas to help the numbers stuck!!!!! App 30 dogs need help
We look forward to hearing from you in any manner of assistance, or any other shelters who may be able to help.
