How you can help dogs seized from Stevens County breeding operations


Following the news of 255 dogs seized in Stevens County breeding operations on Tuesday, many of you have reached out wondering what you could do to help.

The non-profit group HEART is collecting donations. The sheriff's office says what they need most right now, is monetary donations to help pay to take care of and house the animals in a temperature controlled space at the fairgrounds. HEART also lists other requests on their website, which you can donate through:

Murci's Mission is also accepting donations for the dogs. They are in need of:


Cleaning supplies 


Puppy pads

Wire crates

Metal bowls

Some of you also asked about adopting the seized puppies. Right now the dogs still technically belong to the people who were breeding/selling them. Those owners now have about a week to pay at least $75,000, or the dogs will be automatically surrendered to the county. Once they've been surrendered to the county, they can go up for adoption through local rescue groups.

If/when that happens, the sheriff's office will notify us, and we'll share the update. You can also follow the Stevens County Sheriff's Office Facebook page for details about that situation.
