IFAW - Northern Dog Project
First Nations in Canada are often in remote places, hours away from veterinarian assistance. So, in many First Nations communities, dogs are found roaming in the street. Left with few options, some communities culled their dog populations, leaving people and animals traumatized.
Many communities wanted another option – that’s how IFAW’s Northern Dogs Project began. First, they built relationships with First Nations across the country to understand challenges, then together they built a comprehensive program to address the issues.
Today, they offer veterinary services, culturally relevant education, and real-life solutions for communities that otherwise would not have them. Over 20 years, the Northern Dog Project has created an everyday impact. Fewer puppies are being born, and fewer are dying from disease and starvation.
IFAW’s Northern Dog Project empowers First Nations in Canada to thrive together with dogs.

SXM PAWS is a Non-Profit Organization that is completely volunteer-based dedicated to helping the island animals on the Caribbean island of St. Maarten. They rely on a network of fellow animal lovers who help our rescued animals by giving them a foster home in which they can be loved until their forever home is found. In 2019, SXM opened up a small adoption center where people in the community can volunteer and meet some of the lovely rescues that they have in their group. Located in Cay Bay next to The Island Vet.
All their rescued animals are vet checked, treated, and sterilized accordingly. Forever homes are screened and many of their animals are shipped overseas to loving homes found on Facebook, through referrals, and their large extended families who have supported and adopted from them. Along with the animals they are able to bring in, they feed strays within the community as well as try to help provide medical treatment when needed. These dogs are accompanied by a volunteer Flight Angel to ensure their safe travels.

Rays of Hope Bahrain
Rays of Hope Bahrain believes that every creature with a will to live has a right to live free from pain and suffering! Every animal deserves a long, happy and healthy life. … and every dog deserves a good home! The enormous number of stray dogs in Bahrain and the suffering that they endure is so heartbreaking. They suffer hugely at the hands of some humans in Bahrain who treat them in such cruel, heartless, and sometimes unbelievably inhumane ways. The majority of these homeless and voiceless souls do not survive long here due to their extremely harsh living conditions.
The Rays of Hope cause is trying to give homeless and injured stray dogs in Bahrain a hope and chance for a good life. Rays of Hope collaborates with like-minded animal lovers rescue centers that are dedicated to being a voice for those who cannot speak, to save them from the neglect, abuse, and hopelessness they are in; to a life of new beginning and promise. The dogs are completely vetted before being sent to Canada to join rescue groups that help with finding their forever homes. These dogs are accompanied by a volunteer Flight Angel to ensure their safe travels.
