Iqaluit Humane Society

Monetary Donation | Article by: Cindy Cherry

Their mission is to enrich the lives of domestic animals and people through re-homing services, medical care, education, and advocacy for the prevention of cruelty to animals in the Territory of Nunavut. For instance, they brought the Chinook Project to Iqaluit offering free spays & neuters, as well as health check-ups and vaccines to dogs and cats. They also rehome between 300-500 animals every single year through their Dog Run programs.


They work month to month, fundraiser to fundraiser, taking it all one step at a time. So, you can imagine how tough this is to maintain their goals through the Pandemic crisis of 2020/2021.


They receive no government funding or contracts to support what they do, so needless to say they make every fundraiser dollar count and appreciate cash donations such as we did.  

Thanks to their sponsor First Air, they are able to continue sending rescues to the SPCA of Western Quebec.  As seen in these 3 pictures here.

Here the grow!

Just thought we’d throw this picture in, to ask what you think this dog has in its mouth.

We here at the DCPRF normally distribute funds to volunteer based groups, but when you see organizations such as this, working under such tough conditions and challenges, you can’t help but assist them.


So, please if you want to assist non-high-profile organizations such as this, contemplate about giving to Don’s cause, because his philosophy is: “Assisting those who are in the trenches, making Canada a better place for animals.”.
