dog paws

Our roots started after Ann Babey, a nurse from Mount Forest, Ontario saw a need for this healthy link.  In 2002, a focus group of  First Nation and non-Indigenous community members from Cat Lake, a fly-in community northwest of Thunder Bay, was formed.  At this time, dog culls were the most humane method available to manage the dog population and these culls were also a factor in residents seeking help with mental health issues.
