MMSP Donation to Northern Nevada SPCA

Tooth decay, gum infections and bad breath often make rescue animals undesirable to potential forever homes. But, it's a steep price to pay to fix these issues.

The SPCA of Northern Nevada received free training and dental equipment to help combat this problem, thanks to the "Make Me Smile" program, part of the nonprofit group, Foundation for Veterinary Dentistry.

At the SPCA of Northern Nevada, about 90% of their animals are rescued from rural parts of Nevada and they often come in with dental problems, according to Executive Director, Jill Dobbs.

It's important to note that equipment donations to shelters from Make Me Smile are only made possible with generous discounts from Dentalaire, a veterinary equipment manufacturer.

With a goal of spreading their help nationwide, Make Me Smile is always accepting donations for their nonprofit mission. If you'd like to help out, or simply learn more, you can visit their website, here.
