Shoal Lake 40 First Nation

I went to Shoal Lake 40 First Nation Nov. 12, 2016 with The Ark Project and Earthdog Terrier Rescue of Manitoba. The two organizations went to Shoal Lake 40 to provide animal aid. I created a photo essay for a photojournalism class. See the full photo essay here.

Hannah Leslie looks for dogs at Shoal Lake 40’s dump. The organizations heard there were puppies living at the dump. A feral dog barked in the distance, but no dogs were in sight.
