Help Support Husky House

Lorraine Healy, owner of Husky House, grew up with Labs when she was a child. If only her parents would have allowed her to have a husky she would not have been as obsessed with huskies, although she loves all animals and has given many animals a second shot at life. Moving out at the age of 18, she went to FIT, specializing in buying and merchandising. She was able to get her first huskies, Baby and Tundra. When she got her first computer, she read about every rescue Husky story across the country and realized there was a big issue going on. At that time she decided to volunteer for a rescue based out of MA, “Angels of the Snow”. They no longer exist. She did this for about a year and then decided at the age of 27 to start “Husky House”. The first shelter she walked into she brought home ten dogs, and placed them with friends and her own home. She then realized that she was going to need a home for these dogs. Lorraine has always had a soft spot for all dogs that have special needs, the ones that are discarded by puppy mills because they cost too much, or no longer have any use. She has taken on many dogs that are “owner surrendered”. She does this on a daily basis. She has now gained international attention. Rescue organizations across the entire world reach out to her. Huskies from Iran and Saudi Arabia are flown in.

Husky House needs funding desperately. There are no grants or state funding. Husky House runs on charitable donations. If Lorraine won the lottery, she would buy the building they are in, renovate the kennels.

Husky House needs help! Here’s why!

  • During the summer months, the electricity bill can be over $3500 dollars to keep all of our Siberian Huskies and other dogs cool.
  • The rent is $5800 a month for all the kennels and yard space.
  • Husky House’s gas bill can range from $200 in the summer to $900 in the winter months.
  • Ongoing vet care for all of our dogs. We have a vet bill hovering over 100,000 dollars all the time.
  • Husky House’s insurance/liability costs $250.
  • Car and Truck insurance is $450 a month for commercial liability.

  • As you can see, it takes quite a bit of money to keep Husky House going, We need your help, especially now! Please donate whatever you can, whatever amount you can afford. Every little bit helps!Thank you!

    In Memory of Miriam Schmidt

    Miriam's Obituary

    Miriam Kalczuk Schmidt was an avid animal lover who shared her affection with all various types of wildlife. Her love could be felt by common outdoor wildlife, as well as her own fur family, and everything in between. She would on many occasions take time out of her day to tend to injured squirrels, birds, bunnies, and anything that she could possibly find that she thought she could help. While also aiding outdoor wildlife, she would also spend much of her time volunteering at Husky House, the shelter in which her adored fur grandchildren, Shiloh, Maya, and Tasha were adopted. Miriam will be greatly missed, and her contributions to Husky House will forever be appreciated and remembered.

    In Memory of Meghan Crilly

    Meghan Crilly was a loving and compassionate person with a beautiful smile that could light up your spirit. Meghan was a devout second grade teacher at Beechwood School. She was a positive role model to her students, and touched the lives of so many of them. Not only did Meghan love and adore her students, she was also an animal lover. She left behind her loyal friend, Louie, a husky, who made her life fun, adventurous, and even more fulfilling than it was. The love and loyalty this dog showed her was one that could never be replaced. To honor Meghan and her love for her “King Louie”, we are hosting this memorial fundraiser in hopes to spread the same joy Louie brought Meghan. We appreciate your support of this cause.

    In Memory of Matthew Dalton Roane

    Matthew's Obituary

    "There are no words to adequately convey the pain a mother feels when she loses her child. It has been said that those we love can never be more than a thought apart, for as long as there is a memory, they will live on in the heart. If this is true then Matthew will live forever for I shall forever hold him in my broken heart. Matthew enjoyed spending time with his beloved Siberian Huskies both past and present, Niko, Akira and Mila. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Husky House."- Sherrie, Matthew's mother.

    I found you in a shelter, A stray from Staten Island
    A red and white Siberian as precious as a diamond
    I found out rather quickly that you were very ill
    It didn't matter much to me, I'd always love you still
    I remember the first seizure, then you began to cry
    I held you in my arms & promised to be forever by your side
    Epilepsy is what it was, Now I know it all too well
    It took you from me way too soon, so your story I will tell
    I never will forget you, although we are apart
    My goofy buddy Cognac, who etched his paw prints in my heart
    I'll help the others like you whose fight has just begun
    Established in your memory, I'll start The Cognac Fund

    In Memory of our sweet boy, Husky House has started The Cognac Fund. This fund will help other Siberians fighting this horrible disease called Epilepsy as well as other life threatening diseases.

    For more info on The Cognac Fund email Lorraine Healy at

    Husky House would like to thank two very special people who were always there for Cognac.

    Angelo Mone...who adopted Cognac as well as his best friend Kyra and provided a wonderful loving home. Angelo, Kyra and Cognac had a wonderful Happy, Healthy seizure free summer. We wish it would have lasted longer! :(

    Dr. Jason Berg, Cognac's Neurologist. Not only is he a great doctor he is also great guy! You never gave up on our boy. Thank you for giving Cognac a happy summer!

    Cognac 2001 - 10/8/2003

    As the tears flow I write the email I hoped would never come...our beloved Cognac has crossed over the Bridge today. He was just a baby...2 1/2 years old. At about 1 pm this afternoon we peacefully helped him drift away in my arms. Cognac will always hold a piece of my heart and no one will ever forget him. Run free my boy...wear your silver harness proudly and we will meet again in time.
