Today’s guest is Kelly Lambert, the president and one of the founders of Raven’s Husky Haven and Rescue located in scenic DeKalb County in Illinois. Named after their special dog “Raven,” Kelly and her partner, both practicing attorneys, founded the rescue in 2011 and built a rescue facility that sits on four acres of beautiful land that includes a large playroom for the huskies, a grooming room, a kitchen, 12 indoor/outdoor kennels, some Husky-proof fenced yards (meaning fences buried underground) for the huskies to play in, and even trails for Husky hikes! There is a live-in, on-site manager (a retired 29-year US Army colonel veteran), a part-time employee, and a group of dedicated volunteers, including students from the nearby Northern Illinois University, NIU, which is “Home to the Huskies!”
In this show, we discuss the rescue’s dream facility and the special extras they provide Huskies such as a live-in onsite manager, providing the Huskies with soft music, and the very popular “Luv Time,” as well discussing the specific needs and traits of the beautiful Siberian Husky, the importance of understanding the breed prior to welcoming a Husky into your home, success stories of Raven’s alumni, and how to adopt a Husky from Raven’s Husky Haven and Rescue.
While Raven passed away in 2015 from Cushing’s disease, her legacy lives on through the wonderful rescue named after her and the numerous Huskies rescued, rehabilitated, and adopted into forever homes!
