Avatar photo




BIG SKY – Lone Peak Veterinary Hospital will host the Mountain Mutt Mania fundraiser on July 30 in Len Hill Park to support Riley’s Urgent Fund for Friends, an assistance fund for animals in need of veterinary care.

The family-friendly event will have food and drinks along with various games, prizes and a live auction. Big Sky DJ Take a Chance will provide live music during the event.

RUFF is a nonprofit founded in 2020 in honor of Big Sky Veterinary Hospital’s Dr. Sydney Desmarais’s first dog Riley, who was with Desmarais through veterinary school and owning a veterinary practice in Big Sky. Their mission is to help ease the financial strain on owners who need treatment for their pet.

The aim is to “improve the health of animals in need who lack the financial means required for vital veterinary care,” according to RUFF’s mission statement. This is done “by subsidizing diagnostics and treatment for underserved members of our community.”

The event will run from 1-4 p.m. in Len Hill Park and is open to the public.
