Established in August of 1996, we believe this to be the oldest Elkhound Rescue page on the Internet. It arose from the common desires of group of people with one common goal: to find caring, loving homes for Norwegian Elkhounds and Elkhound mixes, in both the United States and Canada. Eventually these desires and goal became the foundation of a foster based rescue organization called the John Nelsen Moosedog Rescue Fund. We are a 501c3 organization made up of all volunteers. Because of that, we may not be able to respond to you immediately.
