Loki is a non aggressive feral cross that I have been working with since he escaped the town owned shelter in 2010.  He is one of 23 puppies seized in the Hay River, NT hoarding case of May 2010.  Thankfully he escaped the shelter prior to the other 22 rescued pups being destroyed by unknown method 2 1/2 months after they were seized and cared for at the shelter.

Loki has been living as a feral since he escaped and has been cared for by myself and a number of other town residents.  We have ensured he is well fed, and I have personally ensured that he receives de-worming and antibiotics if needed.  Loki has survived 3 sub zero winters in the Canadian Arctic, he is a gentle soul and friend to many here and around the world he has united complete strangers who have rallied support for him.

Since I alerted everyone to what is happening concerning Loki (on his FB page) and the very real impending actions that town officials may take, dogs are shot in Canada's North.  I have been receiving countless emails and facebook messages in support of Loki. For that I thank all of you sincerely.

I am issuing this Network message as an urgent plea to gain support for Loki in order to save his life.

I would also ask that all of you who support Loki, to contact directly via email Ross Potter and Andrew Cassidy (Mayor of Hay River) personally by email so that you may plead Loki's case.

Mayor Andrew Cassidy: mayor@hayriver.com
Ross Potter: rpotter@hrfd.ca and or rpotter@hayriver.com

You can also send letters to: City Hall
Town of Hay River,
73 Woodland Dr
Hay River, NT X0E 1G1
Phone: 867-874-6522
Fax: 867-874-3237

While I must acknowledge that complaints about Loki have been received at Town Hall, likely from persons who are ignorant of his gentle ways and lacking in his friendship, those who just don't like dogs period, and those who are intimidated by his stature and who failed to get to know him...I must also acknowledge the fact that Loki is loved by so many, that those whom he has chosen to share his life with want only the best for him, that he has united so many strangers from around the globe who have rallied around him, and he has also as Jean McCarthy so accurately stated he has put Hay River on the map.

With no further help coming from the Wildlife Officer and officials wanting this situation resolved by the end of September or sooner, time is running out to plead Loki's case. I need everyone to contact those persons listed above, a blitz if you will, so that the Powers that Be will see that Loki should be allowed to live out the rest of his life in freedom and not become one of thousands in the NT who have been slaughtered. I have in the past via letters, suggested that Loki become the Town Mascot, which would make Hay River noted for compassion and become a leader to other northern communities for being a community that values even a feral animals life. Proving that a bullet is not the answer!

Thank you to all of you. You are all amazing, and it is from all of you that I gain renewed strength for this ongoing battle to protect Loki.

Thank you.
