HAVRE, Mont. (NMB) – The RezQ Dogs animal shelter in Dodson will be moving to the Havre area, hopefully by the end of the year. Co-Founder Anita Wilke says their current location is prone to flooding, making it unsafe for the animals. They were unable to find a suitable location on the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation, where most of the dogs come from, so they expanded their search and found a location at the end of River Road in Havre.
“It’s going to be a good location for, again, not just because we won’t flood, but we’ll be closer to the place where we do most of our shopping for supplies, for dog food, etc. And we’re closer to the vet clinic in case we have emergencies. Also, we are looking forward to having volunteers.”
Wilke says they will still have some work to do this spring, but this location will help them expand their services.
“The organization has purchased 40 acres. So, it’s a big spot. We currently are operating, really, out of our personal property. So, you know, we have a big dog yard and an exercise area for the dogs right now. But, this new location is owned by the organization and it’s going to allow us to just do more.”
During this transition, Wilke says the best way to contact them is through their email at firstname.lastname@example.org or through their Facebook page.
