We are a team of two friends rescuing huskies & super mutts from places where they are less likely to be adopted, and find committed & passionate adopters in the Pacific Northwest! My teammate Balram is located in Vancouver, Canada and me (Chanchal) in Seattle, USA.
Even though we can’t help every dog, it’s so rewarding to see the very few dogs we help, flourishing in loving homes 🥰
If you’d like to support our mission, you can share our adoptable dogs with serious adopters, and follow & support the organizations that helped their happily-ever-after journey.
Adoption process usually involves virtual and in person meet & greet, application form, reference checks, and an adoption contract. We charge an adoption fee of USD400-450 (CAD600-650) to make sure they go to good homes.
The fees will be used to pay towards some of their expenses (such as international flight travel, other expenses after arriving US/Canada, such as local transportation, foster care and veterinary care expenses. We also sponsor boarding, medical care for some dogs while they are in Lebanon). All our dogs are seen by a local veterinarian and fecal tests done before adopted out. The expenses we take on to help a single dog, ranges anywhere from $1000-$3000, huge variables being how we fly the dogs here and extra medical care. Even though we are not a federally registered charity, we are 100% non-profit.
We are full time Engineers and funds our mission ourselves when we can afford it, just to get these huskies to well deserving forever homes. We also stay friends with all our adopters and meet up every once in a while.☺️
A few years ago, I came across a sweet husky named Heidi rescued from the streets of Lebanon by Mount Lebanon Dog Shelter. Being a mom to two huskies, I was so touched by Heidi’s story and desperately wanted to help her find a home in the US. With no experience with doing rescue work or foster, and no contacts among the Lebanese community in the US, I found it hard to help her. Thankfully, someone else fell in love with her and she got adopted and flew to Canada.
The founder of Mount Lebanon Dog Shelter, Mira and I became good friends after that, and we decided to team up to help other huskies and husky mixes at her shelter. I was eager to make use of the experience I gained with the breed to find suitable homes in the US. Finally, in Dec 2020, my husband Bobby & I brought our first rescue to the US, a husky mix boy named Ghost (now Remy). Also our first foster! We planned his flight travel to California, and Bobby made a road trip to pick him up and bring to Washington.
We continued to rescue more doggos during our free time. With the help of our two fur boys, we cared for them at our home, or at friends who are experienced with dogs. We also got the dogs started on basic obedience training, provided any needed veterinary care and rehomed them to passionate and committed adopters in Washington state! Then one day, we met Balram who shared the same passion to help the huskies, and in 2021 we started doing adoptions in British Columbia ☺️
