Supporting Northern Animal Rescue
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.

What overwhelming support. Thank you so much!!!!!
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.
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.
Thank you so much for all the generous donations. I'm happy to say that overnight we're nearly halfway to our goal. This is overwhelming. Thank you sooooo much!
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.
