Ryan's Rescue Rig

For anyone that knows Ryan Klassen, knows that he is the type of person that would give his shirt off his back to anyone in need. From picking up homeless hitch hikers and giving them not only a meal but 150 gift cards and somewhere warm to sleep, to going at any hour of the night to go pick up a dog or multiple dogs from a northern community that is in need. 

If you also know Ryan, you know that he is a very active volunteer with K9 Advocates Manitoba and has helped save thousands of lives with his rescue dogs being some of them.  Ryan lives for his dogs, buying a van that he converted into a camper so that he can explore with them and give them the best life he can. Taking them on adventures to the pits everyday, his dogs went with him everywhere.  All 4 of his dogs were rescues with terrible back stories but he took them in with open arms despite their flaws that humans have created, he loves them unconditionally. 

Christmas Eve 2020 Ryan took his 2 dogs with separation anxiety to work with him, he left for 15 minutes to drive a coworker home as they asked him for the favor (because that's the type of person he is). 10 minutes into his drive he received a phone call and was notified that the shop the dogs were in along with his brand new uninsured bus that he just bought to take the dogs on adventures with were up in flames.

By the time Ryan and Fire Fighters got on scene the entire building was up in flames you could see from miles away.  

 We can not bring Ryan's dogs back though we wish we could as this is SUCH a tragic loss, but we can help with fundraising so that he can get another rescue van and continue on journeys with his 2 dogs he has and in spirit Phoebe and Jacob as we know they are with him in spirit because they would never leave his side.

Please consider donating towards this cause for this incredibly deserving man.
