On Monday, September 19, 2016, a puppy, Ricky, was dropped off at the Humboldt County Animal Shelter with a broken leg. Ricky, a 3 month old heeler mix, was found running loose at a rest stop on Hwy 101. The surgery to fix his leg cannot be done locally, and must be completed by a specialist in the Medford, Oregon, area. The estimated cost of the surgery is $2,800. The funds for the surgery will come from the Friends for Life Emergency Medical Fund.
If anyone would like to donate to Ricky’s surgery, please send a check or money order to the Humboldt County Animal Shelter, 980 Lycoming Ave, McKinleyville, CA 95519, or drop by the McKinleyville Animal Shelter during business hours. No donation amount is too small.
