Donation drive for seized dogs surpasses $11,000

FARGO – Concerned members of the public have donated more than $11,000 so far to a fund established to help with the medical and other needs of 170 dogs seized last week by Cass County sheriff’s deputies from a puppy mill in Wheatland.

Sgt. Tara Morris said the fund, which is called Operation Cass County Rover Rescue, had collected $11,076 as of Monday to help with the cost of wellness exams, treatment, vaccinations and other expenses for the animals, which are being housed at Casselton Veterinary Clinic.

Morris said the Circle of Friends Humane Society in Grand Forks is also accepting donations of supplies for the Wheatland dogs, including paper towels, newspapers and blankets.

Circle of Friends is located at 4375 N. Washington St. in Grand Forks. For more information, contact Arlette Moen at (701) 775-0858.

Money can be donated at any Bremer Bank location to Operation Cass County Rover Rescue in care of Casselton Veterinary Clinic.
