Angel's Animal Rescue stepping in to save dogs threatened by Manitoba dog culls.
Director Natalie McPhate says arrangements have been made to bring five dogs from Northern Manitoba to Merritt next week, with the goal of re-homing them.
"They'll be 14 days with me while they are quarrentiend. At that time the will get the shots they need, to make sure they are healthy. They will likely be muts, that have bread with other muts. Usually larger breed dogs, like shepard crosses, or lab crosses, or husky crosses."
Stray dogs have been particularly problematic on First Nation Communities in Manitoba, which leads to several problems, most notably a pack-like mentality that arises when groups of dogs join together to roam about the community.
McPhate says the dogs being brought to Merritt will be available for adoption locally sometime in January.
