A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE KAAWA’POMAAKAA RESCUE ORGANIZATION
Kaawa’pomaakaa translated means “Four Legged Friends Among Us” but they don’t limit themselves by the title. Kaawa’pomaakaa Rescue organization is an animal rescue group founded in 2010 and is run entirely on donations and creative ideas.
There has always been an unbreakable bond & harmony between the Northern Great Plains Native Americans and all animals, especially dogs. So it makes perfect sense to have a very active Rescue Organization on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation today.
Kaawa’pomaaka Rescue Organization is located in a small wind-blown community & reservation town of Browning Montana. The area is beautiful in the short summer and beyond harsh in the long winter. Just a few miles east of Glacier National Park & 55 miles south of Canada, Browning sees just short of a million tourists during 8 weeks of the busiest part of tourist season.
The members of Kaawa’pomaakaa are a strong group of sixteen, but for what they do they should be much more in number. Most are members of the Blackfeet Native American Tribe. They don’t get paid. They don’t work regular hours, and their nonpaying job often extends far into the night. They are not animal specialists of any kind, but they give the very best they’ve got, and most of time “the best” is just right. Denise Salois is the leader of the team, and she will tell you any day-of-the-week that she relates best to the “four legged friends among us.” To Denise and her team, caring for animals in need goes beyond a mere passion or labor of love.
The Organization’s GOAL is that someday there will be no unwanted animals on the Blackfeet Reservation, that they all have loving homes.
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE RESCUE TEAM AND WHAT THEY DO:
They feed, foster, find forever homes, provide shelter from our brutal Northern Montana weather, make emergency vet visits, heal wounds, try to cure diseases, try to prevent illness, take care of reproduction issues by hosting neutering & spaying clinics several times a year, and it doesn’t stop with just these simple things.
The Organization doesn’t have a rescue building or even an enclosure. They don’t have a fancy animal rescue van. They don’t advertisement or post rescue signs, but word gets around in a small community like theirs, and they are very busy. They have few resources, but the words “amazingly creative” is their motto. They are a team that’s realistic. They know they can’t save all, but they try anyway.
Just kidding, only the “Welcome” part is true.
They are a rescue/adoption service for animals of all types and species and not just those that wag their tales, but of course doggies are the bulk of their business.
It doesn’t matter to rescue team if the animal is a pet or not, has feathers, fur or scales, paws or hooves, horns or floppy ears, beaks or fins, 4 legs or 2, or health problems. The rescue team does not discriminate because of color, gender, age, good looks or bad, fat or slim, young or old, color of the fur, rich or poor.
Just a few of the rescue buddies
The rescuers will take them just the way they are. Even if the animal happens to be a new born bunny that lost his mommy.
Oki (means “Hello” in Blackfeet). He wants to be everyone’s best friend and confidante’. He will sit with you all night if he thinks you need consoling.
This pretty boy is an example of who may find his way into the helping hands of the rescue team
This gorgeous rescue kitty is warm and cozy in her “forever” home.
Look at this guy’s smile. These days he smiles all the time. He makes me smile too.
