PRIEST RIVER ANIMAL RESCUE

aka PRAR

Priest River, ID

Mission

Priest River Animal Rescue (PRAR) was founded in February 2002 in answer to pet abandonment. We aggressively promote spay and neuter as a way to end pet suffering by prevention of unwanted births. Our volunteers work diligently to put lost pets back in their homes. PRAR works towards a future with no more homeless pets. Our mission is to rescue stray, abandoned and abused animals in Bonner County, Idaho, Pend Oreille County, Washington and surrounding areas. PRAR is a "No Kill" rescue organization that provides medical care to every animal rescued. All animals adopted from PRAR are spayed/neutered as an effective way to solve animal overpopulation. PRAR promotes community-wide humane education in the importance of spay/neutering and providing good care to animals.

Priest River Animal Rescue is aiming to provide quality humane care, rehabilitation, adoption, and education for the good of the animals and their companions in our community. Along those lines, our intention is to create lifetime friends through adoption.

All of our animals go through an "intake" process which includes vaccinations, de-worming and an exam. They are treated humanely, have separate living quarters and enjoy the outdoor play yards. We educate the community on the public safety and health of owning a pet and we make certain the right pet goes to the right owner.

We have several volunteers that put countless hours in to make sure the animals are well taken cared for and to answer and assist in any questions or concerns the would-be adopters have.

We have plenty of feedback from the community, veterinarians and partner shelters we have become associated with. We also keep bookkeeping records on revenues and donations we receive throughout the year.

We strive to meet our goal everyday. In the past year we have adopted out over 400 cats and dogs. Through the hard work of the volunteers, partners and residents, we are very happy with the day-to-day services we provide. PRAR is always looking to better the rescue whether it's finding more space, receiving more grants and making the environment even more pleasant for our animals. It's a constant battle, but a battle worth fighting for.
