Emergency Rescue Needed for Martina Delp's dogs...

Martina Delp died suddenly (electrocuted) at her home in Salcha, Alaska. She operated Long Haul Kennels and had more than 30 dogs. Troopers, the After Hours Emergency Clinic, and Loving Companions Animal Rescue are working to rehome the animals immediately so that they don't have to go to FNSB Animal Control where they will likely be euthanized as they'll over-fill the facility --- many of the dogs were rescued from there previously.

Some of her dogs are already listed on (look for Long Haul Kennel by searching under the zip code 99714) but many are not. Some of her animals are spayed or neutered, but some of them are not.

ALL of them will be spayed or neutered prior to final placement free of charge. (Courtesy of SNIP and Dr. Rose.) Some of the ones listed have already been altered, even though the listings haven't been updated.

Martina had no family nearby. The dogs must go into foster care until legal decisions are made. If you could help by fostering one or more animals, please contact Donna Buck-Davis at Loving Companions Animal Rescue at 907-488-0516 as soon as possible.

If we don't find immediate foster homes these dogs will likely be delivered to the shelter by the Troopers.

Loving Companions Animal Rescue will also provide free kibble to help subsidize these dogs.

THank you for all that you are doing. it has been very hard for my parents to tie up loose ends with this sudden death. it has been hard for the entire family, that someone with so much to offer and so many great ideas could leave us so early. as her sister, i plan on staying a while longer in alaska. i would like to help in any way i can, to further martina's passion and dream. my e-mail contact is: <a href="mailto:"></a>
