When GTS Husky Rescue was founded in 2014, their goal and mission was to save arctic breed dogs from high kill shelters across the nation. Although specializing in these breeds, they have also taken in and helped other non-artic breeds when space allows.

Located in Jupiter, Florida, GTS Husky Rescue is a 100% no-kill shelter, strictly run by volunteers with no paid staff members.  All dogs stay either on the ranch or with a foster until they can be adopted. Those dogs that are deemed “unadoptable” due to behavior problems or medical issues, are either kept at the ranch or placed in long-term foster homes while they are rehabilitated.  According to the statement on their website, they are; “Dedicated to improving the lives of helpless dogs.”

The organization has taken on  many dogs with extreme medical conditions and behavioral issues that require training that funding has become scarce. Because they are a 501©3, they strictly rely on donations.

The most recent hardship case taken on by GTS Husky Rescue is Nala, a six-year-old female Siberian Husky, picked up as a stray by Miami Dade Animal Services (MDAS) in early November. Nala was found with a huge, bloody mass hanging from her chest. She was also heartworm positive.

MDAS called in an emergency request to GTS Husky Rescue, and of course they couldn’t say no. It appears that Nala had been abused and starved her entire life. She has never known love or a warm bed. Upon getting Nala, there was no time to waste.  The surgery was performed to remove the deadly mass. The mass was then sent to pathology and the rescue is currently waiting for the results.

Now this girl is sweet and loving and has the will to live. And she deserves a second chance; a chance to enjoy a home, a warm bed and people that love her.

GTS Husky Rescue, like any other rescue, needs angels that they can rely on to help them provide proper vetting, including pricey surgeries, keep the ranch running and all of the animals fed and up to date on all medical.  No donation is too small.

    Nala. What a beautiful name for a beautiful girl. Wishing you well. Hope there are donations that will help. I will try but it is hard being on pension and doing rescue of disabled dogs and wildlife. Your caring attitude for Nala is amazing. You deserve something from public. Even small amounts add up. Mine will be small. Sorry.
