Donations help heal broken pooch

The community responded quickly

THE BATTLEFORDS — The Battlefords Humane Society made a plea recently for donations to help treat a dog with a broken leg and supporters responded with enough to cover the costs of surgery and more.

On April 6, the society posted a picture of a dog who came to them with a broken tibia, asking for donations to help cover the $1,000 that would be needed to put pins and wires in her leg.

By April 7, $1,894.33 had come in, according to the organization's Facebook page.

“Thanks to you we can cover her surgery as well as her aftercare which will include a couple sets of x-rays to make sure she is healing properly and anything else she may need. We do appreciate your kindness!” the Facebook post stated.

The Battlefords Humane Society is holding a virtual gala to raise funds for the care of approximately 109 animals in shelter care, vet hospital and foster homes. See the video featuring Michelle Spark, executive director, and senior dog Abby at

This virtual gala is a first for the shelter, and their goal is to raise $15,000.
