Sponsor Black Spruce Kennel

In addition to owning and operating Black Spruce Dog Sledding, Jeff and KattiJo Deeter are also long distance race competitors. Jeff has completed multiple 1,000 mile Iditarod Sled Dog races, and has never scratched or been withdrawn from the race.

Jeff’s highest Iditarod finish was 15th place in 2019. 



$25 – $175

The COVID-19 crisis has us scrambling. From routine maintenance to emergency purchases, the dogs’ needs don’t stop just because tourism does. Donate at least $75 to our kennel and we’ll send you some sweet End-of-Season surprises.


$300 – $500

This is the most popular choice for friends and fans of Black Spruce Dog Sledding. Have you taken a tour with us? Chances are you felt a special connection to a dog (or two) while you were here. Sponsor this dog and receive some cool gifts from us!

This is the best choice for businesses and organizations. When you support our racing kennel you demonstrate your commitment to tradition and community. We proudly display our gratitude and support for these businesses.
