Who Let The Dogs Out? Nearly 70 Animals Taken From Shelter

PRIEST RIVER, Idaho – Dozens of animals were briefly described as missing from the Priest River Animal Rescue after four board members of the non-profit shelter abruptly resigned earlier this week.

Cathy Reynolds arrived at the shelter on Wednesday around noon and found an envelope with resignation letters from at least four board members and ten volunteers.  60 cats and nine dogs were taken from cages.

Reynolds said she believed the members who resigned had taken the animals, but she could not verify their location.  She believed the animals were safe but could not say for sure.

At least three of the board members confirmed they resigned and told KHQ Local News Reporter Anthony Gomes the dogs and cats were taken to no-kill shelters across the northwest.

The members said they felt the animals would be better cared for at other shelters because so many people associated with the animal rescue had recently resigned.

Reynolds acknowledged several disagreements with several other board members, including herself, over bylaws and adoption procedures at the no-kill shelter in Priest River.

Reynolds said she and the remaining board members plan to continue accepting animals.

Police described the disagreement as civil, not criminal, in nature and are not investigating the removal of the animals.
