BONNERS FERRY — Nestled between Bonners Ferry and Sandpoint is Moose Valley Farms and nursery, which brings not merely plants, but pet food and knickknacks to the Naples and surrounding communities.

On Sept. 23, Moose Valley held an event showcasing their love for the community and the communities’ love for their pets. With dog trainers, an agility course, drawings, specials on pet food, and booths set up from Second Chance Animal Adoption, and Sandpoint/Ponderay Animal Adoption, they attracted quite a few fur babies and their parents.

There were coupons given out helping pet owners with spay/neuter costs as well, which helps the communities keep the population of the local shelters lower. Everyone wants a cute new puppy or kitten, but not everyone can afford the medical costs of having them fixed. Often times, there is an abundance of kittens, puppies, and other animals being sold or given away over the warm months. Most animal lovers want one, and many can care for them, but there are loads of animals every year that end up in shelters, some from neglect, abuse, running away, or abandoned, others are from families that just cannot keep them anymore. The idea behind local charities that give spay and neuter coupons and aid, is to help lessen the amount of shelter animals, and encourage owners to acknowledge the growing crisis, not just in our communities, but nationwide.

Another booth that made an impact on the event attendants was the booth for Canine Companions for Independence. The people in this group give their time and hearts to raising puppies over fourteen months in order for the disabled people in need of a service animal to receive the assistance and companionship that they direly need. There are more than 400 disabled people on the waiting list in our Panhandle area that are in need of a trained service animal. For more information on adopting and fostering a service animal visit cci.org.

Moose Valley is expanding and rearranged their storefront. They moved the knickknacks area to the former office area, and brought forward the pet supplies, with more plans being unfolded. The change brought the communities together to enjoy discounts, clearance items, free-bees, and for community members to socialize with their dogs while enjoying a hot dog off the barbecue for themselves.

There was a free doggie photo shoot as well, which brought excitement to both pooches and owners. The owners were able to capture the day in order to remember not just the event, but to freeze a point in their fur babies lives that will be remembered, not just by the owners, but by their pets too.
