Chapman Mills, Ottawa, Ontario - Pet Adoption

Rocky Road Rescue has dogs and puppies for adoption. Adopt a pet in Ottawa, Ontario. The next morning, we set out on an overnight camping adventure across the secluded tundra, accompanied by our guide from Arctic Kingdom. As the premiere Canadian Arctic adventure company, Arctic Kingdom has toured with everyone from royalty to movie stars, and has even provided services for underwater movie productions for National Geographic and Disney. They offer a number of experiences, from private animal adventures to cruises through the Northwest Passage. As we worked our way along a road that seemed to lead to nowhere, I thought I spotted a wolf on the shore of a small lake. We stopped to investigate and found a dog sled team living along the water’s edge. Ten mighty working dogs expressed their delight at my approach by setting up the most incredible howling. Later, I ran into the owner of the sled team, who said she kept the dogs for family fun. Unlike some other teams, they were home-raised as puppies and clearly well-socialized.

Ottawa/Belleville, Ontario - Pet Adoption

Caring for animals in the North is complicated. The IHS rescues dogs from as far north as Resolute Bay, above the Arctic Circle. With the generous support of First Air they are able to transport cages to remote villages so the animals can be airlifted back to Iqaluit. After rehabilitation, many are flown south to Ottawa for adoption. One of the volunteers we met on arrival was visiting from Ottawa, where she had adopted an IHS dog. First Air also provides free flights for veterinarians to fly up and conduct free spay and neuter clinics.
