“I have been working with LOKI since he escaped the Hay River Shelter in June 2010” explains Bonnie. Bonnie has been the caretaker of Loki for three years now. Loki is a special dog, he was rescued as a puppy from a hoarding situation in 2010 and then when taken to the shelter he escaped. Loki’s life was in danger when the Town of Hay River decided that as a way of “animal control” all stray animals would be shot. Bonnie was short on time…but an angel came to the rescue. He flew all the way from California to Hay River in the NWT. His name is Eldad Hagar. He is known for the great moments he catches on camera when he rescues stray dogs in California.
A bit after midnight on Sept 30 2013, I got word from my beautiful friend Bonnie Dawson telling me that LOKI was resting inside a friend’s garage. How did this happen? Well it took the effort from a lot of people. People thought that Eldad Hagar from Hope for Paws was the only person that could be successful at communicating with Loki that he would be safe with him and two great ladies called Bonnie. Yes, there is Bonnie D and Bonnie C living in Hay River. I know people posted messages on Eldad’s page and people wrote to Eldad… thank you to all of you that believe in Eldad. There are people still behind the scenes trying to keep Loki safe and getting all that he needs. Sarah, Shanon, Jean, Lawrence and all the great people that are actively looking over LOKI. Thank you so much Eldad for your love for animals and for coming over to help LOKI. The following is Eldad’s update.. Now we have to ask for Mayor to adopt a humane way to end the problem of strays. The only solution is sterilization, hold adoption clinics and educate the community about being a responsible animal guardian.
