Husky Rescue KZN
Husky Rescue KZN rescues stray and unwanted huskies as far as our capacity and financial resources allows us to. We treat, rehabilitate, sterilise, microchip and foster these huskies until we can find appropriate homes for them. Given their unique nature and needs, our adoption process is very strict.
The Breed
The Siberian husky is a breed unsurpassed by any other, except its relatives. The more familiar you become with this breed, the more you will grow to love his independent, intelligent and free-spirited nature. Unfortunately, there is another side to the Siberian because of the very nature of his personality. People often take ownership of these dogs because of their unique and intriguing looks – only to discover very soon that they require hard work and dedication. The Sibe is a companion animal with special needs, and as a result is a very misunderstood breed. People do not research the nature of this breed adequately before owning one, and are then often not able to meet the special needs of this breed. As a result, the Siberians end up abused, neglected or simply abandoned. Alternatively, they can find themselves locked up in animal shelters. The tragedy of this however, is that they are one of the most euthanized breeds because of their inability to cope with confinement for long periods
Animal Assisted Therapy
Studies have been carried out to prove the value of these types of therapy, and accounts of successes in these fields are innumerable. The South African Depression and Anxiety Group (SADAG) endorses the benefits of animal therapy with people suffering from Autism, PTSD and other conditions. It is our desire to use these rescued animals in AAA to reach out to people in need, from children in remedial settings to adults seeking individual counselling. We also hope to branch into assisting adolescnets who need to witness in courtrooms. I believe that while emotionally injured people are caring for, and working with abused or neglected animals, there will be a positive rebound effect on them. The feelings of unconditional love, acceptance, and the sense of achievement in re-socializing broken animals, will automatically open the gates to healing in their own lives. There are no canine orientated animal assisted therapy programs in KZN that I am aware of. As a Registered Professional Nurse with trauma and psychiatric experience; and a Certified Animal Assisted Activity Professional, running a registered NPO Animal Welfare Rescue Organisation for Siberian Huskies, I believe I am well suited to offer this service.
Our ARROHHH Vision
The Lebanon ARROHHH (pronounced ‘arrow’) is the Association for the Rescue and Rehabilitation of Humans, Huskies and Horses. Our ultimate vision is procure and develope a working farm and bring Husky Rescue KZN and Animal Assisted Therapy Programs together where we use our rescued huskies (and eventually horses) to work with people who have suffered emotional traumas. This human/animal partnership will aid each other in a mutual process of healing, and the result is the empowering of ‘survivors’ and ‘victors’! There is abundant evidence to prove the value of using animals to work with people who are in emotionally broken.
