A Female Husky-x presently Adopted

Thanks to the Northern Paws Project, Ivy has found her way to Animatch from Oujé-Bougoumou, another Northern Community with a roaming dog population.  The dogs in these communities need more than Animatch, they need organizations to go in and do spaying and neutering in vase numbers.  Overpopulation is a Canada wide issue; however, in these communities the population do not have the luxury of rescues, shelters, and animal control people picking up these dogs – so they roam and reproduce.   In fact, in most communities there are no vets.  Free spay/neuter clinics are held in many communities and residents are encouraged to have their dogs sterilized.  If every home that has a dog had the dog sterilized, there would be no roaming dogs.  Consequently, you wouldn’t have injured dogs, starving dogs, or neglected dogs.  We are a long way from that dream but it is possible.   If we can put men on the moon, humans can surely figure this out.  Bringing the dogs to Animatch and other rescues helps some dogs but many are left behind – it is just a band aid solution.  Those that are left behind do not live to old age; you won’t see many senior dogs.   In the meantime, Ivy waits for her home.  Being a Northern Girl means that she is looking for an active, outdoorsy family, who loves the winter.  She gets along with other dogs but she requires a feline-free home.  If you believe that you can make a difference in this girl’s life, please consider adopting her.  Fill in the Adoption Form and ask for Ivy.
