Arctic Rescue’s Park City Dog Sledding Team

Once seen as “unadoptable,” these rescued pups have proven themselves unstoppable.

Written By Sara Hobbs

Maren and Racer Gibson created the Arctic Breeds Rescue after encountering Huskies and Malamutes deemed “unadoptable” by others. Frankly, they believed the opposite. Twenty years ago, the Gibsons witnessed a need and took action — they saw the energetic gift of these pups and gave them a chance.

The Gibsons are knowledgeable of Huskies and Malamutes and know these breeds are often misunderstood; the dogs are lively and energetic, and if this energy doesn’t receive an appropriate outlet, it can be channeled negatively. With this in mind, the Gibsons were inspired to create a dog sledding operation called Team G Sled Dogs. The team’s Park City dog sledding tours are booked through All Seasons Adventures, giving the energetic rescues and fosters independence and purpose. Pulling the sleds allows them to run and embrace the open spaces of Park City. Now, rather than being perceived as “unadoptable,” the dogs have proven themselves unstoppable.
