Humane Society Rescues 5 Dogs From Being Euthanized

COEUR d' ALENE, Idaho-  This week the Kootenai Humane Society rescued five dogs on the brink of being euthanized from an animal shelter in Yakima. Now those dogs are going to be placed in homes in Kootenai County.

The Kootenai Humane Society director says there isn't a large market for people wanting small dogs in the Yakima area and the shelter's website says it is a kill shelter when space runs out and they are unable to find a rescue.

However in Kootenai County there is a huge demand for small dogs.

The humane society has a long list of people wishing for small dogs so these five are already headed for a home as soon as they get their shots and are spayed or neutered.

"When you look at these dogs they are just gorgeous," said Rondi Renaldo, executive director of Kootenai Humane Society. "They're so adoptable and just beautiful, and it just breaks my heart that they might have been ended."

The Kootenai Humane Society says they plan to go back to Yakima and rescue more dogs when they become available.

Even though these dogs are spoken for the Humane Society encourages people to still call them and put their name on the wish list and the humane society will try their best to find them a dog. The Kootenai Humane Society's phone number is (208) 772-4019.
