In northern Ontario, Canada, there are many stray dogs that every year face dying from starvation or brutal winter temperatures, but thanks to Friendly Giants Dog Rescue (FGDR) and Pilots N Paws Canada, three stray dogs from Sandy Lake First Nation reserve will no longer starve or be at risk of freezing to death.

The lucky dogs saved from such painful death are a two-year-old Lab-Doberman mix mom and her two three-week-old pups. Thanks to the animal rescue group and volunteer pilot Gerd Wengler, the three canines flew from the northern Ontario reserve to Ottawa to start their new lives.

Because there is no veterinarian at Sandy Lake First Nation reserve, all stray pets in the area are left to their own fate. Every day, the large population of stray dogs struggle to stay alive, but thanks to caring organization like FGDR, many pets from the reserve get a second chance in life.

FGDR depends on volunteer pilots who donate their flying experience, time, aircraft and fuel to transport the reserve strays to other cities where they await foster families and potential forever homes.

On December 6, 2014, the young stray family  from northern Ontario arrived at the Ottawa airport and there, FDGR volunteers anxiously awaited their arrival. The young mom and her pups are under foster care, and once the pups are old enough, all three dogs will be made available for adoption.
