Bear's P4ws Readers We Need Your Help!

Dear Readers, 

VOTE FOR ME and help us help the northern dogs of Canada
We haven’t been around for a long time, but in the months that Bear and  I have been sharing our stories and our doggy-wisdom, we’ve been lucky enough to find a connection with some of you through the wonderful world of blogging. 

Now, those of you who have been reading with us may (or may not) know that Bear is a rescue dog.  I rescued him three years ago from the harshness of life up in Northern Canada.  He came to me beaten, half frozen and very nearly dead.  It took a great deal of patience and quite of few tears before Bear was happily in the clear, but while I was struggling, there was a wonderful group of people standing by ready to help. 

These people (an assortment of vets, vet-techs and volunteers) call themselves the Friends of Animush (Animush being the oji-cree word for dog), and they spend their summers travelling from one reserve to another handing out free medical care to all the dogs they can find.  This care includes spaying and neutering any roaming dogs, providing vaccines and necessary shots against rabies, heartworm and parasites and then providing any other extra care the dogs may need. 

They are not paid for their services, and more often than not, they have to struggle with community members in order to be permitted to treat some of the dogs they find.  These wonderful, wonderful people have been responsible for the saving of so many doggy-lives on various Canadian reserves that it breaks my heart that practically no one knows that they’re there. 

Well no more.  

Bear and I have recently had an opportunity dropped into our hands.  An opportunity to help promote and donate to this glorious group of people, but we need your help to do so.
Bear has recently made the finalist roster of the TorontoPet Daily’s most recent contest.  If he wins, his winnings will go the Friends of Animush

Please, help us help the dogs of the great Canadian North.  VOTE for Bear.
(Bear is the 6th dog down on the page.  His name appears 6th in the voting box)

Keep your tails wagging
