Dog rescue

Kelowna man heading to Haiti.

While tens of thousands of human casualties have been the focus of relief efforts, his expertise makes him one of the few who can address the needs of animals that have been caught in the devastated landscape and it’s a situation he can’t ignore.

“We have a professional team and we can go down there and make a difference,” he said. “We need to go down there ASAP because many dogs will be trapped, unable to find food or water and they’ll be suffering and perishing slowly.”

Few will be rescued in the traditional sense. Pattison realizes in many cases his work will be focussed on euthanizing the animals he finds that have been injured beyond repair, and it’s not a task he’s looking forward to, though it’s not unfamiliar territory.

    Thank you for caring for the animals of Haiti! I myself was very concerned for their welfare too, so I am glad to hear that I am not the only one who is thinking along these lines! I also hope you will be able to make it there in time to help many of them! Sincerely, Kate Harris
