Responding to a call for help from an Arctic animal rescue.
WIN a trip for 4 to IQALUIT!

Helping pets is what we do. So when a call for help came in from the Iqaluit Humane Society (IHS) in Canada’s far north, I was immediately concerned. Rescue work “takes a village” and is even more challenging in remote locations with few resources.

Iqaluit (which means “many fish” in Inuktitut), located on Baffin Island, is the capital of the territory of Nunavut, and the gateway to the Canadian Arctic. It’s also home to a blend of 7,000 people, including Inuit, English and French Canadians, and an assortment of transplanted workers from all over the world.

IHS told me they were desperate to find funding so they could care for stray animals in the North. The shelter is being run on a shoestring budget with part-time help, and only functions at all because of an incredibly dedicated group of volunteers who do what they can outside their full-time work hours. How could we help this community? Along with my wife and Animal Wellness Editor-in-Chief, Dana Cox, and our 11-year-old son, Tristan, I headed north to find out.
