21-Hour Road Trip

Hope and Foxy were two dogs in distress and living in a northern community. They were listed as not having an owner. RCMP members in the community contacted us about options for the two dogs. Since they were in distress, we made arrangements to collect them from the northern community and get them checked by a vet. Once their issues had been addressed, we gifted them to the Peace Regional SPCA for re-homing.
