Permanent Sled Dog Residents

Of the many dogs who pass through our Sanctuary we have found a few who needed more than just the time to heal. Some bond with us so deeply that we find it is in their best interest to stay with us and live out the rest of their lives here at the Sanctuary.

Their stories are all different, their needs never the same but their boundless love and passion for the sport of dog mushing is what we all have in common.

Many of the sled dog residents at the Sanctuary who have become permanent help us rehabilitate our fosters in ways we humans cannot. They not only speak the same language but they connect with those in need often having come from similar, if not the same, situations themselves. Who better to have a heart to heart with dogs who are broken and speak to them the message of hope?

These permanent helpers allow our new rescues to settle into daily life with ease making the transition from the kennel to the trail working side by side as they prepare for adoption into their new forever homes.
