As an organization whose primary mandate is the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of dogs in need we definitely advocate adoption vs purchase of a dog. There are too many wonderful dogs that are a product of the overpopulation problem that just need a home to call their own.

Not all hart rescue dogs come into care with intense injury or illness. Many come into our care malnourished and fatigued. They are mostly stray dogs who have been battling for survival. Looking for shelter in our hard, long and cold winters and scavenging for whatever food they can find - garbage, wood, small rodents. This is a very hard existence and more often than not, the first few days that rescue dogs are in foster care, they sleep and eat. A lot.

If there are stray dogs everywhere, why does hart focus on First Nations communities?

A movement is gaining momentum to help clearly communicate that some dogs need space when they are out and about by affixing a yellow ribbon to the dogs leash. The concept is that if you see a dog with a yellow ribbon on his/her leash it means that he/she needs a buffer around other dogs.

In a figurative sense, my dogs have left paw prints across my heart. In the literal sense, my dogs are constantly leaving paw prints across my floors. That got me to thinking about their paws, specifically their pads.
