Last January, Danielle Eden (co-founder of Dog Tales Rescue and Sanctuary) was visiting a shelter in Israel when she came to a startling conclusion, this was the worst shelter she’d ever seen. 250 dogs were living in a rat-infested space designed for 70 and the animals were filthy and fighting over scraps of food. Faced with such a dilemma, there was only one solution: she bought the entire shelter. Since then she’s managed to relocate 90 dogs within Israel and another 25 have been taken to her sanctuary in Ontario. Eventually she hopes to bring all of the dogs to Canada. If dog’s are a man’s best friend then Danielle Eden is certainly a dog’s best friend.
An Israeli team has been put in charge of making the shelter a clean, livable place for dogs and, in the meantime, veterinarians have been addressing the dogs‘ health problems. The end goal is to bring all of them to Canada while the renovation is occurring.
“Dog Tales is an independent dog rescue and horse sanctuary located in King City, Ontario. Here we are committed solely to the welfare of the animals. Our animals come to us from all over the world, and we provide them with a safe and loving home for as long as they need.”
