“Our partnership with the Navajo Nation and assistance from Darrell McCurtain (Navajo tribe member), and employee, allows us to enter the reservation and assist with animal rescues, food and supplies,” said Lindsay Orgtega, Nuzzles & Co., Operations Director. “We visit the reservation on a monthly basis providing pet food and medical supplies regardless – so this trip we can also send supplies we collect to also help the tribal members.”
