Husky Rescue KZN is registered as The Lebanon ARROHHH. The Lebanon ARROHHH (pronounced ´arrow´) is the Association for the Rescue and Rehabilitation of Humans, Huskies and Horses.
Husky Rescue KZN is a NPO and we have been in existance since 2010 and have succesfully rehomed more than 200 huskies in the greater Durban area. We rescue, rehabilitate and rehome abused, neglected and abandoned Huskies in KZN, South Africa. We treat, sterilize, microchip, rehabilitate and foster these huskies until we can find appropriate homes for them. Given their unique nature and needs, our adoption process is very strict. We take care of an average of 50 huskies at any given time.
The running costs of taking care of our dogs are nothing short of R30 000 a month. Sometimes they are with us for as short a time as a week. Most of our dogs are with us for several months before we find them a good home. Some of our rescues have been with us since 2010 we call them our Golden Oldies.
Currently there is a worldwide crisis with the Siberian as they are being over-bred by unscrupulous backyard breeders because they have gained so much popularity in recent times. Movies like 8 Below and Balto have contributed towards their popularity but recently Game of Thrones has severely impacted on the crisis of unwanted Sibes. There are six dedicated Husky Rescue Shelters in South Africa, and this alone should tell you the crisis we have with unwanted huskies.
Our ultimate vision is to procure and develop a working farm and bring Husky Rescue KZN and Animal Assisted Therapy Programs together where we use our rescued huskies (and eventually horses) to work with people who have suffered emotional traumas. This human/animal partnership will aid each other in a mutual process of healing, and the result is the empowering of ‘survivors’ and ‘victors’! There is abundant evidence to prove the value of using animals to work with people who are in emotionally broken.
Charnell J Ruth is the Founder and Chairperson of of Husky Rescue KZN.
