Mend-a-Pet directly helps injured and sick animals at Spokane Humane Society
SPOKANE, Wash. — Many times, sick and injured dogs and cats are surrendered to the Spokane Humane Society because their owners cannot afford treatment.
It then falls on the Humane Society to take care of them. Last year, they spent $16,000 in outside veterinary care for things like x-rays and emergency surgeries.
They’ve started a new campaign called Mend-a-Pet, where you can find out about an animal in need and donate directly to their care.
Sheila Geraghty the executive director at the Spokane Humane Society said, “that means that every animal that comes through our doors who needs treatment will get it because we can financially support that. We do not want to have an animal suffer because we cannot treat it because we don not have the funds.”
Their goal for the year is to raise $20,000.
