The Chinook Project’s guiding star is “Chinook”–a Kimmirut puppy with whom I fell in love, when I first visited the community in 2005.  Her untimely death was, indirectly, the inspiration for our Project–and her spunky, loving spirit is kept alive in our Project’s name.  She reminds us of our dream: to one day see all dogs in remote northern communities with the same kind of care they receive in the south–to find communities filled with happy, healthy, wanted dogs who brighten the lives of those around them.
