What is I am Alive Dog Rescue?

I Am Alive Dog Rescue is a volunteer organization in Eastern Ontario, Canada dedicated to saving abandoned dogs and placing them in loving and caring homes. We are committed to saving dogs of all ages that would otherwise be senselessly killed for the lack of a loving home. Most of our rescues are pulled from high-kill dog pounds where they have been slated for certain death through no fault of their own.
They are funded in part by donations and in part through adoption fees for dogs. These donations and adoption fees help to cover some of the costs such as food and veterinary care our rescued dogs require. If you think you could offer one of our wonderful dogs a good home.
I am Alive Dog Rescue was the first rescue that Sash-Mar Paws and Norway Animal Rescue started working with. They have helped rescue over 55 dogs

Rescuing Manitoba Dogs

What is 12 days of Thanksgiving around the world?

This facebook group is run by Anna GH.
Anna opened the group to hold mini-auctions. This group started because of her desire to re-home some of our much loved belongings.Thanks to a wonderful group of people who bid, cross-posted, and donated items she raised alot of money to support animals and people in need. As importantly, many new friendships were formed and strengthened, inspiring lovely acts of kindness. For example, Around the World from A to Z featured things that Peter or I had bought or been given from different places. Winning bidders chose to which non-profit/charity the funds were donated from a short list. 
Anna and Karen raise money in some of these auctions to help pay for vetting for Norway house furbabies.
