Saints Sled Dog Rescue
Our charity for 2018 will be Saints Sled Dog Rescue
SSDR is a nationwide, voluntary run non-profit organisation approved for charity status. Their aim is to help as many unwanted and stray Siberian Huskies and Alaskan Malamutes as possible through the process of fostering and rehoming or simply supporting their owners with help and advice. Educational visits are arranged and carried out across the country, including working and handling demonstrations.
Working alongside other rescue organisations, pounds and dog wardens to help ensure that all dogs are rehomed in the best possible environment for them.
At present, many of these dogs are being purchased and even bred by people who have very little understanding of the needs of these wonderful breeds. Through educational visits and working demonstrations they hope to improve the future for these dogs, whilst trying to help the ones who need support now through rehoming and support.
All of their coordinators are experienced in these breeds and have themselves fostered and adopted Siberian Huskies and Alaskan Malamutes. Their volunteers are all passionate about the breeds and the work that they do. At SSDR, they will take any dog that needs us, regardless of its age or health. Any donations to take a dog into care are voluntary. They are also happy to offer their services in assessing these breeds for other rescue organisations that may not have great understanding of their specialist needs. Providing training and 24 hour support for their volunteers as well as lifelong support for the dogs that they rehome.
