Today we had to say goodbye to one of our beautiful rescue girls Aurora. She had some medical problems this past weekend and went downhill very quickly Monday night to Tuesday morning. She was not responding to medication and treatment and sadly was not able to recover. Aurora was a wonderful dog, full of spunk and friendly to everyone.
We are so thankful to everyone who donates to rescues, any rescues, and especially thankful to everyone who sent kind thoughts, wishes and donations to try to help Aurora recover. Even though Aurora never got a forever family, she had people who loved her and wished her the very best right to the end.
We will be holding a memorial for Aurora soon and giving all the Arctic Rescue foster doggies a big treat in her honor.
Thank you again to all of our wonderful volunteers and donors. Without you it would not have been possible to give Aurora a place to feel loved and cared for during this difficult time.
Goodbye Aurora, you will be missed.
When: Saturday, June15th
Where: Wheeler Farm, 6351 South 900 East SLC UT.

Our photographers include:
Sandra Salvas is a local outdoor photographer living in Park City Utah. She has a passion for photography and a love for animals that most people will never understand. When she’s not working her day job as a photo editor for Black Diamond Equipment, she’s hitting the trail with her dogs Sequoia and Timantti (a Karelian Bear Dog whom she adopted from Arctic Rescue). Sandra is known by all her friends as a dog whisperer and her photographic talent is captured thru the eyes of our furry friends. Sandra has had work published in Bark Magazine, The New Yorker, Skiing Magazine and many other prestigious publications.
Cassy Bee Photography
My name is Cassy and I am a photographer based out of Sandy, Utah. I specialize in landscape, nature and portrait photography. I also enjoy photographing weddings, maternity, and boudoir, newborns; I am available for travel as well. I take a natural, and classic approach with all my portraits and incorporate my own personal touches when capturing those timeless moments. I love working with all different styles, and I take pride in creating beautiful pieces of art, which speak deeply for my passion for photography.
I have a passion for all things bees, including beekeeping. Besides photography, my time is spent beekeeping and harvesting honey, playing outdoors with my loving husband, camping and hiking, reading, as well as spending time with my two labs, Zoey & Nola.
Thank you to everyone who participated in our dryland sled dog race on Saturday, November 3rd, 2012 in Park City, UT. We had a great turn out and were able to raise a lot of money to help support the rescue of these amazing dogs.
It was truly wonderful to see so many of the dogs we have adopted out there racing. Yukon and Echo were two of the many who attended.
We were so happy to see foster dogs Summit, Habe and Mozart able to race. Special thanks to the volunteers and fosterers who participated with them.
The new event a dog costume contest a blast. We will definitely have to keep that one on the program for next year.
Here is a link to some of the photos that were taken, there are a lot more photos on Facebook, Utah Paw Power and Arctic Rescue.
We look forward to adopting out more dogs and seeing more of them at the race next year! Happy mushing!

Many people who are not in a position to foster or volunteer often ask how they can help homeless pets. Donations of quality food make an amazing difference for the dogs in rescue and are always greatly appreciated.
Many of the dogs we take into rescue have had poor diets and it shows in their coats, health and even behavior. Part of rehabilitating the dogs we take into rescue includes providing them with a quality diet. We would not be able to provide them with such great food if it was not for donations so we wanted to create a post to not only thank everyone who donates bags of food, but to also really demonstrate what the quality diet of our foster dogs can do to help them.
When Chaske was in the shelter and first came into rescue he was thin, his coat was VERY dry and brittle.
Chaske after a couple of months on some better food and his coat is glowing!
Quality food really does make a difference for our foster dogs, thanks to everyone who continues to support our homeless dogs.
We had a fun/ eventful weekend at Arctic Rescue. On Friday, May 31st, the wonderful staff of the So. Ogden AC drove two new rescues (Odin and Aurora) to us in Provo. An officer from the shelter contacted us to see if we could help the huskies and said “They want out of my shelter so bad. I hate when dogs are this smart and so confused why they are here.. if you can help, I will transport.”
Odin and Aurora are delightful, animated Siberian Huskies who fit right in with the rest of the gang at Arctic Rescue. They were exited to play and get out on some hikes.
Odin is a young (guessed to be between 2-3), white Siberian Husky with ice blue eyes. Odin does have something wrong with his left eye, either from an eye condition or from physical trauma to his eye. We will take Odin to see a veterinary eye specialist this week to see if there is something we can do to help his vision. Odin is in need of a good bath, and will be neutered ASAP, but underneath his blowing coat is a stunning, friendly boy.
Aurora is also a young, friendly girl full of what we like to call “Siber-tude” (the ability of a Siberian Husky to look straight at you only to let you know that, while you seem nice, they don’t understand why they should do what you ask because they can clearly get what THEY want without your help, let alone consent).
On Saturday we took Denali on an outing to Wheeler Farm (the location of our upcoming fundraiser on June 15th). There we met up with Druid and his friends, Melissa, Dakota and Maya to play. Denail had a wonderful time and Druid was such a good boy.
Oh Cousin my Cousin
Cousin it had to go to the vet on Memorial Day because he was lethargic and not eating or drinking. Cousin was on IV fluids, antibiotics and vet monitoring for several days to find that he had eaten a sock that was wreaking havoc on his digestive system.
Cousin was able to pass the sock on his own and was excited to be picked up on Sat. The vet was also relieved that Cousin was heading home because he was jumping out of their kennels and stealing dog food.
Cousin spent the rest of the weekend getting some R&R and TLC.
Maya also got to have fun playing in the water on her morning hike.
