As fun-loving as Siberian huskies are, they often don’t take kindly to crating. They have been known to escape crates, destroying the crates and harming themselves and their homes in the process, which is one reason many become homeless.
For determined pack animals, wire crates and often airline-approved hard plastic crates prove useless. Yes, the Siberians laugh at the humans who think they will work.
Their goal is to find their pack members who have left the dwelling.
In order to have success in our foster homes, Pet Harbor needs top-end crates. Impact crates are top-of-the-line for Siberians. We also have worked with K9 Kennel Boss, which has been a fabulous experience. They are an extraordinarily rescue-friendly company. The appropriate size crate for the majority of our dogs is available only from Impact at the moment.
In addition, Pet Harbor holds events about once a month. The events are held in different locations. At present, our event wire crates, table, chairs, and other event supplies are stored in a storage unit. To make it easier to transport crates and supplies to events in different locations and avoid the storage unit cost, Pet Harbor is seeking a 5×8 single-axle trailer with at least a rear swinging door. This is an example of the type of trailer we need:
We really are hoping a Santa out there has these items they don’t want and will donate them to help homeless Siberian huskies. Since we realize that might not happen, we are seeking donations to buy a trailer and the crates. Thank you ever so much! If you have the items and would like to donate them or give us a significant discount on a trailer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This event has been cancelled due to weather forecast. Continue Reading…Read More

More About Me: I’m told swift drivers suck. Well, this Swifty doesn’t. Why? Because I don’t drive! Nor do I suck! In fact, I think I should be a Swifty truck driver, always on the go. Some of you in the trucking business might get this analogy. I can turn on a dime and don’t need GPS to reach my proper destination. I’m told swift drivers tend to get themselves into some odd situations. Somehow I’ve gotten into an odd situation, but someone did it to me. We all wonder what happened to my leg. We don’t know, but it doesn’t matter to me. I am totally fine with three!
Although I can and do run & play with my four-legged brethren, my foster mom says I am a pretty laidback guy. You will see in my pictures I’m frequently upside down. And let me tell you a secret. My foster family calls my brother a grumpy old man, but I go in my foster brother’s crate while he’s in there, and he shares with me! Isn’t that amazing?
Speaking of my foster dad, my foster dad keeps laughing every time he says my name. I wonder why.
If you’re looking for an awesome tripawd, come and meet Swifty. Maybe I’m the one for you.Read More

More About Me: What can I say? There’s one thing I want and one thing I give, and that is love. I love to love. Well, my foster mom says I need groceries, too. Somehow, I had the same home and family for 3.5 years and came out of it super skinny. How did that happen? I am healthy. So did I not get food? It’s a mystery to the Pet Harbor folks. What they can tell you is I am just full of love. Maybe I was starved for food and love. It hasn’t affected my happiness, ability to love, energy level, any of that. Always have a smile on my face. I’ll always put a smile on your face. What else can I say? A girl just wants to be loved.Read More
