Proposed animal sanctuary would be the largest in the Northwest

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash- Members of Wags to Riches Animal Rescue and Sanctuary have unveiled plans for what will be the largest animal rescue and sanctuary in the Northwest.

The 60 acre facility is designed for all animals including dogs, cats, horses, and birds.  There are a number of animal rescue organizations in the region, but organizers say this facility would help pull together those different groups to save more animals.

"There's a need for us all to unite because we need a sanctuary for the dogs and the cats and the horses that are not adoptable but still to give them a good life", says Mark Adolf, one of the sanctuary's designers.

The new facility will serves as many as 700 each of dogs and cats, and 100 horses.  It is still in the planning stages and is in need of funding. If you would like to contribute, contact Wags to Riches Animal Rescue.
