Some were dropped off in Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado and Montana. 12 were brought to Spokane Valley at Ray's Auto Repair where they were cleaned and groomed by local dog lovers.

The remaining Springers were taken by an east coast contingency of the rescue group to find homes in the eastern part of the country. Rescue operations are funded by donations from the public.

Two of the Springers brought back to Spokane are pregnant.

Volunteers say they are in need of bedding and towels. If you want to made donations, please contact Heather Fall at 509-842-4380. Fall will arrange a way to pick up the items.
