Western Nevada Regional Youth Center rescued Riley who is a 4 year old female Boxer. She has been a therapeutic part of our client’s recovery by befriending everyone she encounters. Riley had a TPLO surgery to repair a ruptured cruciate ligament, which Community Animal Hospital completed and donated a majority of the cost. Due to Riley's continued health issues and extensive medical needs, WNRYC placed her with a staff member from the medical center.  The placement did not work out for Riley due to her not being cat friendly. Good news though a WNRYC staff member stepped up and offered her a forever home. Thank you for caring and supporting are extra special friend, Riley, who has left footprints on all our hearts!
