Northern Animal Rescue is a registered Humane Society established in 2009 and based in La Ronge, Saskatchewan. We serve the communites of La Ronge, Air Ronge and the Lac La Ronge Indian Band.  Over the years we have rehomed over 2500 animals, have partnered with the University of Saskatchewan to bring spay/neuter and veterinary  care clinics to the community and are continually working to raise awareness of animal welfare issues in our communities. 

Surrounded by boreal forest, the summers in our region often bring forest fires. Unfortunately, the summer of 2015 has been one of the driest on record, and has led to unprecedented fires in the region. 

On Saturday July 4, 2015 the three communities were evacuated due to a serious threat from close by fires. As a result, many community members were forced to leave on short notice and were unable to take their family pets with them.   

Northern Animal Rescue along with partners from the three communities and volunteers from the southern part of Saskatchewan, is helping to coordinate the evacuation of these animals, as well as the care of animals who remain in the community. Currently we have volunteers in the evacuated communities who are feeding animals left behind. 

The dedicated volunteers of Northern Animal Rescue will use funds raised to care for animals in need of food, shelter, transportation and vet care during this crisis. 

When the smoke clears (literally!), the NAR board members and dedicated volunteers will all return to our home and continue our work. We anticipate an influx of animals needing our services and additional funds raised will go directly to our rescue operations.

WE'VE MADE OUR GOAL!!!
Thank you to all our contributors!

We're keeping this campaign active, as we're anticipating a lengthy evacuation with ongoing costs.

If we have any funds left when this crisis is over, Northern Animal Rescue will use them to continue operating in the tri-communities.

Wow! Less than 24 hours after our first post, and we're already at $275 away from our goal. THANK YOU!

Please note, the NAR board has decided to keep the campaign going if we reach our goal. Additional funds will continue to go to supporting the work being done during the crisis, and through the rehoming period once we can all go home. We anticipate that to be a lengthy and expensive process.

Our team on the ground continues to do everything they can for the animals in the area impacted by wildfires. Here's a happy doggy who went south this week to a foster home.

I am so appreciative and happy that you are doing what you are. I know there are so many neglected and abandoned animals in the north that need help. I was a pet rescuer/adopter for over 20 years, so I know the emotional toll, time and money it takes to continue on such important work. I hope you will soon be able to achieve charity status - it does help to get donations! Keep up the good work. Good luck!
