Dear Great Falls Community,
On the night of July 14th 2014, a female Pekingese mix was hit by a car between the block of 4800 and 5000 of 2nd Ave North and was left on the side of the road. Animal Control was notified by some good Samaritans and the dog was brought to the shelter after being seen by the shelter’s contracted vet. Since then owners have come forward. However, as we all are probably all too familiar, one can never be totally prepared when emergencies occur. The family desperately wants their furry family member to get the care she needs, but is unable to afford all the medical care that she will need. So we are asking you as a community to help this family and their beloved pet out. Anyone interested or willing to donate please contact Best Friends Animal Hospital at (406)453-2200 in care of “Riley”. Thank you!
