Famous veterinarian will help find homes for North Idaho pets | Pets
Animals in North Idaho are getting a little celebrity push to find a home this holiday season. A celebration of animals is not a celebration unless it’s “punny”. Calling their adoption event “Christmas Pawty” on Tuesday, December 20th, is expected and hopefully welcomed by homeless animals in the Idaho Panhandle.
The “pawty” is hosted by Dr. Marty Becker, regional veterinarian featured on Good Morning America and the Dr. Oz Show. With his daughter, author, Mikkel Becker, they’re working with animal shelters and volunteers to find homes for love-able North Idaho pets - cats, dogs and more.
Kootenai Humane Society, Hayden
They’re located at 11650 N. Ramsey Road. Their “pawty” is Noon to 2 p.m.
Panhandle Animal Shelter, Ponderay
They’re located at 870 Kootenai Cut-off Road. Their “pawty” is 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Second Chance Animal Adoption Shelter, Bonners Ferry
They’re located at 6647 Lincoln St. Their “pawty” is 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Becker shared this comment in a press release saying some animals who are overlooked have the biggest personalities.
“Sometimes, they just aren’t as cute or don’t photograph as well as another pet does. Or, maybe, they have a quirky physical characteristic and people write them off right away as being high maintenance. But an eye out or a limp doesn’t mean the animal will be unhealthy,” Becker said. He added: “On the contrary, these are the scrappers in life who survive most odds.”
