We adopted our new family member in November 2016 from hairy Houdini Siberian husky rescue. The adoption process was very thorough and each volunteer we worked with was friendly and knowledgeable . Our Diefenbaker was around three months old when we adopted him. He is very well socialized and does well at veterinarian visit. Our veterinarian commented that the rescue did a nice job with him!

I started by fostering a Husky and fell in love with her. I adopted her and have became a volunteer for HHSHR, because of the work they do If not for them, these beautiful dogs would not have a chance of having a loving, caring family

I adopted my female approximately 2 years ago. She is the best decision I have ever made and wouldn't know what to do with out her in my life. HHSHR was very friendly and helpful during the adoption process. Maybe of the rescues I tried to adopt from did not have as friendly of a process as HHSSHR. I am very pleased with all aspects of the adoption process from hairy Houdini Rescue! I recommend them to everyone I know!

I have one adopted Husky from this group and have fostered many. It's very rewarding to see the dogs in need enter our care then watching them in their loving forever homes living happily ever after. Some have had a rough life. It's nice to see them learn to relax and be happy.
Very dedicated and caring bunch of volunteers that pull together when a dog is in need!

Maverick came to us from the rescue called at that time Mich/Ohio Husky Rescue. Now Hairy Houdini . We had lost our loved family member Charlie (a 17 year old Husky) six month before and we wanted another Husky. We first saw Maverick on their web sight standing on a picnic table. That's all it took, we were in love. After we contacted the rescue and gave them our information and story. Cherie called our Vet to check us out and arranged a home visit. When he arrived we knew he was the one, he adopted us. He stayed. We have had a great time for the last ten years since that day. He loves going to the field and stretching his legs and going to Grandmas farm where he can run free. He now owns everything. We own nothing everything is his. Looking forward to many years ahead with him. I would recommend this origination to anyone. Their love for their job is evident in everything.

HHSHR is an amazing rescue with great people! Our second HHSHR rescue (Blue) was a terror when we first brought him home; literally a 1-dog demo crew. Cherie was always available to listen and offer advice during his "chew everything" years!!

7 months ago we were looking to add another member to our family. After doing a little research and recommendations we looked through HHSHR. We spoke to the foster who gave us detailed information about this handsome boy. We instantly fell in love. Our boy who we have given the new name of Gambit is everything we have hoped for and more. We were informed how HHSHR takes the incoming dogs and works with them to know what type of personality and love that they need to have in their new homes. The communication was great, the information was clear and they love every single one that comes through their rescue. It's no exaggeration when people say " who rescued who" when it comes to bringing a 4 legged love into your life. We owe it to Hairy Houdini for helping us complete our family.

My wife and I adopted Leprechaun. We loved Leppie, but she knew something was missing. Leppie then went to a foster who had other Siberia and she started to show her kinship for her own breed. As a family of adopters and fosters, HHSHR has saved the lives of numerous huskies. As Leppie's kinship for huskies began to truly show, Cheri remember the one husky Leppi was always close to. Today, Leppi is with her life long friend and both huskies are truly happy. This is how a real RESCUE works. It's not one who adopts out a husky and forgets. The intimate and continuing love of the dog and the breed continues for the life of the dog. My wife and I now have a beautiful boy. No he did not come from HHSHR, but another rescue who saves huskies from kill shelters. You bet that is important. Our Red/White boy was just shy of being euthanized when he was rescued and we have him and he's become family. Family to us and HHSHR as well who answers all our Newby questions.
Finally I must say that whenever a HHSHR adopter sees a husky who's in dire straights, HHSHR works with us to save as many as we can. They're our NO 1 SIBERIA HUSKY RESCUE

a great organization. They bring all dogs up to date on shots, spay or neuter, micro chip and do a great job evaluating the dog for different characteristics, such as food aggression, interactions with other animals, dominate, children, etc.

The volunteers spend a great deal of time evaluating potential fosters, communicate amongst each other and basically bring all fosters into the family of HHSR.

We have adopted two dogs from HHSHR. Our first Stryder came from another home that had previously adopted from HHSHR but circumstances in the home changed and that person could no longer care for the dog. HHSHR has a very loyal supportive community that at its foundation wants what is best for the rescue dog. I saw a posting and made an appt. to go see the dog at the previous adopters house and we fell in love with the dog. HHSHR checks out every adopter so I had every confidence that this adopter who was having to give up his dog was a great person and wanted the best for the dog. We did and still do share pictures with this previous adopter.

Our second rescue adoption came one year after the first and I was seeking a second dog, a female, to keep our first dog company. Fit was important so we met up at the park with one of the foster families and met the dog I was certain would be the perfect addition to our family. On Father's Day 2015 we welcomed our second HHSHR dog, Luna, home.

I can't say enough about how well the organization and the fosters evaluate the dogs and the prospective adopters. I am not even sure how and when that happens but the important thing is that it does happen. It is why HHSHR has so many successful placements and such a welcoming community.

We love our dogs and they are very happy in our home. We are sad they had to go through so much prior to coming to our home but are grateful to HHSHR for saving them and allowing us to adopt them.
