PRAR cares for animals

Buddy One limped into our lives here are Priest River Animal Rescue with a broken leg that had knit itself improperly.

He was in a lot of pain – and you know that’s saying a lot when you’re talking about a dog.

Even though we did not have the budget to take him to the vet to fix this problem, one of our volunteers brought him straight into Pend Oreille Veterinary Clinic where his leg was rebroken and properly set including pins andstitches.

Luckily Buddy One smiled and wagged his tail for a kind woman from Spokane who is fostering him while he recuperates – giving him just enough exercise along with comfy spots to  relax.

X-rays and removal of stitches is scheduled for early October.

 But meanwhile, our kind-hearted volunteer is out close to $800.

We are very much hoping to reimburse her with donations from the kind-hearted community.

Thank you for your generosity.
