Every year thousands of sled dogs are abandoned, lost or for some other reason find themselves without a good home. This is a tragic and unfortunate situation, but help is at hand. Thanks to the kindness, dedication and sheer bloody-mindedness of dog lovers all over the country a lot of these dogs find new, permanent & loving homes.
There are a number of Welfare Associations in the UK & abroad, we have listed the main ones here but this list is in no way comprehensive. Alternatively you could search for welfare/rescue associations in your area.
There are always dogs out there needing a new home!
Bridget Robertson co-ordinates the fundraising events for Snopeak Sled Dog Fundraising. Her husband Ewan has been involved in a variety of events over the past quarter of a century including sponsored walks, cycles, 24-hours events, discos and specialising in the last 20 or so years in dog orientated events. The majority of which have included sled dogs. They have been active in the dog community for a good number of years now and Ewan first qualified a dog for Crufts back in 1980. A few years ago they were key in establishing the 1st ever UK charity for Sled Dogs. After taking the charity as far as he could, Ewan felt he could better serve fundraising activities though a different approach. Ewan is well known through the Sled Dog community and has made many contacts through the years and together with his PA and disco company is now able to contribute more to various types of fundraising events and making them more succesful and memorable for all those involved.
Why not come along to an event and see for yourself how exhilarating it is?
