Thank you to all of our wonderful volunteers and sponsors of the 2018 summer fundraising season!! We could not do it without you and your thoughtfulness and generosity. Special Thanks to the Klondike Visitors Association for their consistent support through fundraising opportunities as well as the grants that HSD receives each year. We would also like to send a special Thank You to The Feed Store Whitehorse for their continued support for our fundraisers including the Dog Show as well as the bonuses we receive from them each year. Air North also continuously supports HSD through their compassionate care flight program allowing us to send or receive dogs as needed throughout the Yukon and BC.
We think that you will recognize some of our furry friends from the shelter in “DOG”, the Audience Choice Award winning short film at the 2014 Yukon 48 Hour Film Challenge!
Although this video, created by Dawson City’s Cud Easbound and Devon Berquist, was made just for fun, it portrays a reoccurring scenario at the Humane Society Dawson – intact dogs being surrendered due to aggression, house soiling, roaming, and other unruly behavioral traits.
Just like in the film, however, there is always a happy ending and second chance for our shelter dogs!
