Gidget is a very friendly, sweet girl who is a survivor of the horrific dog meat trade in Asia. Stolen from the safety of a home or other familiar surroundings she was crammed into a cage with many other dogs, frightened, hungry and barely able to move unaware of what fate awaited her. Gidget though was one of the lucky ones who was rescued and taken to a shelter in northern Thailand where she resided with 1200 other rescued dogs. Here she was safe and was no longer hungry for food but she did not have the love of a family she so deeply craved. The Soi Dog organization seeing how sweet she was and realizing her potential took her to their main facility in Phuket where they could assess her, work with her and share her with the rescues they work with abroad. We at Firefighter Dog Rescue are very happy to be involved with the next chapter in Gidget's amazing story. We are bringing her to Canada and to a loving family she is so deserving of. If you would like to help us write the last chapter in Gidget's story and open up your home to this loving girl please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org Gidget would make a great family dog as she is very gentle, good with other dogs and children and at only about 30 pounds can fit into any household.
I've been heavily involved in dog rescue the past four years. I spent a great deal of time volunteering with the Humane Society of Durham region as well as a short stint on their Board of Directors. During my time at the Humane Society I worked with over 700 dogs. I assist local dog rescues as well in any ways I can. I have fostered dogs for rescues, done home visits and I have done about 100 animal transports. I recently formed a partnership with Soi Dog of Thailand.
