Last year Katie Rohe and her family found their new puppy was going to need surgery to correct severe hip dysplasia which would cost several thousand dollars. This was a period of stress and worry about their sweet pup, not to mention concerns about finding the funds to pay for such and expensive surgery. This is when Katie realized there are so many people and animals in the same position. Because of her experience and learning that many owners end up having to surrender these pets to their local shelters, Katie decided she was going to do something to help those animals not as fortunate as Whiskey. That’s when Whiskey’s Warriors was born!
The purpose of the Whiskey’s Warriors 5k is to help pet owners who cannot afford or fall short of the funds necessary to help pay for their pets’ medical needs, or to pay for the surgery of rescue pets who would have otherwise not been adopted, due to health issues. The funds will help Talbot Humane further our Intervention and Retention program to assist pet owners in our community with medical needs in order that they do not have to surrender their pets to the Talbot Humane.
