In The Woods Animal Rescue Society

Monetary Donation | Article by: Cindy Cherry

The reason why we need rescue groups in Canada.

This Northern Alberta CRA registered charity has many projects & goals.  One of which is to increase awareness & cooperation within the Indigenous communities to foster a working mutual beneficial relationship. They service a variety of geographically diverse communities that are rural, often remote, underserviced, and include over ten Indigenous and Metis communities. The need for transportation to bring in animals for veterinary care, spay/neuter clinics, etc. is a large strain on the minimal funding this rescue receives from individuals and Foundations such as the DCPRF.


Since their establishment in 2013 to now (2019), 3468 dogs have come into care and subsequently been vetted, spayed/neutered, and found their forever homes! At any given time there could be over 100 dogs, 160+ cats, farm animals such as pigs and cows, as well as a variety of small critters too numerous to mention in their care. Because of this it is imperative that they have strong relationships with several “local” vets within a two+ hour radius to provide the best care possible to all animals upon intake. They have created spay and neuter programs to help reduce populations in under-serviced and under-privileged areas such as remote First Nations Communities. Plus organize numerous adoption events in cities such as Peace River, Grande Prairie and Dawson Creek, BC. They have also been responsible for the installation of town water onto sites, to allow for clean and reliable water sources.

Volunteers make such a change in so many Northern Dogs’ lives. 

Without rescue groups having their Spay/Neuter Clinics, these dogs just keep multiplying.
