Humane Society Medicine Spoils

The Kootenai Humane Society is soliciting funds from the public to replace expensive medicine that was ruined recently when the refrigerator door to the veterinarian room was found open. "We believe that the seal for the door didn’t stay secured (old fridge), so while the Vet and Vet Tech’s were gone for 2 days the door was open," said executive director Rondi Renaldo. Among the medicines lost were: Cat vaccines FVRCP, Dog Vaccines DA2PPV and Bordetella, Rabies Vaccines, SNAP test kits – which test for Parvo and these are very expensive, and Blood test panels – slides for our machine. "We have around 80 dogs and 120 cats so we can’t wait to replace the medicine," said Renaldo. The Humane Society doesn't get money from local governments. All donations are tax deductible. /Kootenai Humane Society news release (208-699-4844).
