Partnerships saved lives.

partnerships saved lives.
On May 14th and 15th, we teamed up withLake Traverse Animal Rezcue (LTAR) andSpay Neuter Impact Project (SNIP) by sponsoring a spay/neuter and vaccine clinic on the Lake Traverse Reservation in South Dakota, providing much-needed veterinary services for community members’ pets.
Thanks to the partnership and volunteers over the weekend, 240 animals have been impacted – making it a clinic record! That means 240 animals were vaccinated against fatal and contagious diseases like rabies, distemper, and parvovirus and were also given dewormer and flea/tick preventatives. Of those 240 animals, 131 were also spayed/neutered to prevent thousands of unwanted litters – all in one weekend!
In addition to these outstanding accomplishments, Ruff Start and the Lake Traverse Animal Rezcue handed out over 1,000 pounds of pet food to community members for their pets in need!
We are so incredibly grateful for the opportunity to sponsor this event. We couldn’t have done it without the Ruff Start supporters. Thank you so much for your donations and support for Ruff Start and the work that we do. What a huge difference we were able to make to the people and pets in the Lake Traverse community.
Thank you to those who donated towards this effort and made this possible. If you would like to donate to Ruff Start Rescue to help us continue our mission-based work, you can do so HERE.
