The film focuses on the issue of stray dogs in Northern Manitoba reserves and follows Jasmine Colucci and Dave Brooker who run the K9 Advocates Manitoba group. They’ve rescued more than 2,500 dogs over the past few years. A lot has happened since the CBC airing of Fostering Hope in January 2018.
We have continued working with remote communities across Manitoba to help reduce the stray dog over population crisis and to help improve the health and safety of the communities. Over 1,000 dogs (and some cats) have come through our care since the documentary aired. Our partnerships have grown to over 20 adopting rescues across Canada that these pets have been transferred to so they can find their happily ever after.
The stray dog problem in Northern Manitoba has never been more serious. First Nations’ nurse, Jasmine Colucci, saw this problem first hand in the community she lives in.
Wanting to help Jasmine began volunteering for numerous dog rescue services in rural Manitoba. She did it on her own, at times driving 10-12 hours a day just to save a dog.
Every time she ventured into a Northern community, she came across stray dogs suffering from all manner of different ailments. She saw carcasses on the side of the road – dogs that had died of severe mange, starvation or gunshot wounds.
She was determined to do something about it that was how K9 Advocates formed. A group that not only rescues dogs in need and re-homing them but has a voice for dogs and lobbies the government to help with this serious issue.
