The first line of defence in detecting sickness and disease, NDR performs exams on each and every northern dog during our travelling clinics
NDR is available to attend canine events and offer mobile microchipping clinics with funds supporting our rescue.
Vaccinations are administered to all dogs when attending a spay/neuter clinic. An integral service to combat both pack and human disease prevention. These dogs are more at risk of contracting rabies due to their remote location and exposure to the elements.
Spay and neuter clinics is single handedly the most important service that NDR offers. With your help we can end the over breeding problem in aborigional communities.
When we can, NDR intervenes to offer immediate care for the most urgent cases when we arrive on location.
Whenever we can, NDR with the help of wonderful volunteers bring back at risk northern dogs. These beautiful dogs are rehabilitated and offered to qualified families for adoption
Northern Dog Rescue offers dog day or overnight boarding to our support community. Your fees go directly to helping a Northern Dog in need.

Northern Dog Rescue is the passion project of Dr. Helena Dean of Dean Veterinary Hospital, a successful small animal practice owner and clinician in the heart of Kleinburg, Ontario. A long time animal lover, Dr. Dean started Northern Dog Rescue after volunteering at an aboriginal spay/neuter clinic in Moose Factory, Ontario. NDRs mandate is to contribute to the health and wellbeing of dogs located in remote aboriginal communities by travelling to them and offering medical intervention and education.
The reality is that many dogs located on reserves do not have access to veterinarians and therefore medicine, vaccinations and surgical intervention is not an option. Instead, aboriginal communities have no choice but to do mass culling of the dog population. As one can imagine, this is an unthinkable cruelty that can result in a slow and painful death. Though with food scarce, resources unavailable and packs of dogs breeding out of control, inhabitants feel they are left with little choice.
Northern Dog Rescue is there, at the front lines offering the dogs hope - a chance at life. We fundraise through various initiatives so that we have the resources to travel to the source. We offer vaccinations, disease prevention, spay/neuter clinics and most of all education to the residents. When ever possible we also pull at risk dogs and rehabilitate them both medically and emotionally to adopt into loving homes.
