|Established in August of 1996, we believe this
to be the oldest Elkhound Rescue page on the Internet. It arose from the
common desires of group of people with one common goal: to find caring,
loving homes for Norwegian Elkhounds and Elkhound mixes, in both the
United States and Canada. Eventually these desires and goal became the
foundation of a rescue organization called the John Nelsen Moosedog
If you cannot adopt a needy Elkhound now,
but would like to help with our efforts, you can make a donation to:
P.O. Box 65
If you need other information, contact us at
email@example.com or visit us at
Your donations and gifts are tax deductible.
We have received our determination letter from the IRS and are classified as a
tax exempt organization described in section 501c3.
If you wish to refer a needy dog to us, please use
the Submit for Adoption form to provide as much
information as possible. We are a national rescue and need information on
the location of the dog as well as the legal owner or responsible party.
