B.C. rescue asks for help saving dogs from freezing in remote Manitoba

Cold snap means dogs need to be taken to warmer areas

A Vancouver-based dog rescue is asking for donations of cash and supplies to help dogs ahead of a cold snap in Manitoba.

The organization, called Thank Dog I Am Out, said it needs money to help K9 Advocates Manitoba, a non-profit dedicated to helping with dog overpopulation on First Nation reserves in that province.

“Help our rescue friends remove and assist the dogs that face freezing to death, being shot or starving on Manitoba First Nations,” the Vancouver group posted to Facebook on Tuesday.

The organization said it has received a “massive” amount of donations in cash, crates and help flying the dogs from the remote reserves to places where they can be adopted out.

The next deadline to donate goods in Nov. 5 so they can be trucked to Manitoba.

The rescue is looking for travel crates, unopened dog food, blankets, coats, harnesses, leashes, collars and beds, as well as money and travel escorts for the dogs flying between Manitoba to B.C. or Ottawa.
