For May, Beading Divas to the Rescue fundraiser continues for ROAR.
Last winter, nine small puppies were pulled out of a log on the Pine Ridge Reservation. No one knew how they got there or what happened to their mother. But the rescue surely saved their precious little lives.
The nearest water source was a creek, but the water was mostly standing water and probably not too tasty or healthy.
Once the Oglala Pet Project (OPP), one of the many Program Partners of the ROAR Program, had placed the orphaned puppies into their foster network, the pups were fed, given water, wormed, vaccinated and spayed/neutered prior to adoption.
A story like this is why ROAR created Pet Promise service to help with spay and neuter services. Reducing the dog and cat population is an important step to improving the health and welfare for animals on Native American reservations.
ROAR provides supplies and subsidies to empower care giving and rescue of animals that are abused, neglected, injured, diseased, or abandoned.
ROAR (Rescue Operation for Animals of the Reservation) aids struggling animals and people who care for them on American Indian reservations.
