#WaitingWednesday Spotlight: Northern Lights Sled Dog Rescue (NLSDR)

Welcome back to our weekly #WaitingWednesday Blog Hop where we highlight rescues and feature some of their adoptable dogs and dogs waiting for a foster home! While we here at FiveSibes, focus on Siberian Huskies and northern breeds, the Blog Hop is open to ALL breeds and species, so I hope you will join in and highlight some rescues near and dear to your heart and hop along with us! This week, our featured rescue is Northern Lights Sled Dog Rescue (NLSDR).

Based out of Indianopolis, Indiana since 2004, NSDR's mission is, "to advocate for and/or rescue stray, abandoned, displaced, or abused dogs. In particular we focus on northern breed dogs facing euthanasia in the Midwest/Great Lakes region shelters. Our goal is to place the dogs we rescue in loving, experienced, and secure homes with people who understand and celebrate the unique characteristics of their breeds. Northern Lights is the largest rescuer of northern breeds in Indiana. All of our Siberian Huskies, Alaskan Malamutes, and northern breed mixes are adopted to homes that are thoroughly screened and investigated to ensure the best possible match for each individual dog in terms of the new guardian's experience, lifestyle, and home environment."

"Northern Lights Sled Dog Rescue is a group of committed and experienced rescuers who came together because we wanted to stay true to our shared passion and priorities and keep our rescue about helping dogs. We maintain excellent working relationships with virtually all the leading northern breed rescue groups in the Midwest and Great Lakes regions."

What's This NEW #WordlessWednesday 
Blog Hop All About?
It's about becoming a "village" to help rescues, homeless Huskies, and all abandoned pets of any species in need. It's also to share breed information to help educate folks so they understand the traits, habits, and needs of specific breeds, such as the Siberian Husky, BEFORE they welcome one into their home to ensure the home will be a forever one. Please check out our recent post HERE where I talk all about this new important Blog Hop!  

Also, please be sure to read a very important and informative blog article wrote, #BreedEducate2Relate: It Takes A Village to Help Huskies in Need about the explosion of Siberian Huskies being abandoned and to become on educated on the breed before welcoming one into a home, as well as an equally important companion article in 4Knines titled Siberian Husky Rescues: A Heartfelt Mission to Help the Homeless. I hope if you have not read these, you will and share with others, too.

How You Can Join in Our Weekly "Village" to  Help Homeless Pets...

Write a blog post highlighting a rescue (you can do a different one each week!) along with some photos of the rescue's adoptable animals (dogs, cats, horses, bunnies--any species) along with a little info on the pet and the rescue's contact information. Then grab our badge below and link to our blog, add your post's link to the Linky list, and join in the hop to help homeless animals!

 If you are with a non-profit rescue of northern breed dogs (and mixes of both), please send me your info and some of your adoptables to highlight in an upcoming “Waiting Wednesday” feature! Feel free to Email info and photos to FiveSibes(at)gmail(dot)com and put 
“Waiting Wednesday Adoptable” in subject line!
