Welcome to River's Wish Animal Sanctuary!
River's Wish Animal Sanctuary is located on 65 acres in Spokane County and is dedicated to helping animals in need. The sanctuary is named for River, an inspiring dog whose love encouraged us to do more. River himself was a shelter dog and our constant companion. After a yearlong courageous battle with cancer, we sadly said goodbye to River in 1999. River’s Wish offers sanctuary to rabbits, dogs, cats, goats, horses, donkeys, pigs, chickens, turkeys and more. It is the dream of River’s Wish, that every creature is able to live a full and joyful life.
