Riley's Urgent Fund for Friends

To better the lives of animals in need within the Big Sky Community


RUFF's Inspiration

RUFF was developed to create an Assistance Fund to help animals in need. Unexpected emergencies or life situations can result in owners having to make tough choices for their furry friends when they become sick or injured. The goal is to help ease these burdens of the situations by providing financial assistance. Ruff was created in the memory of Dr. Desmarais's first dog. Riley, who joined her, in her life's journey from Vet School, to owning a practice in Big Sky, MT.

“Because of the dog's joyfulness, our own is increased. It is no small gift. It is not the least reason why we should honor as well as love the dog of our own life, and the dog down the street, and all the dogs not yet born. What would the world be like without music or rivers or the green and tender grass? What would this world be like without dogs?” 
― Mary Oliver, Dog Songs
