Saving The Animals Of The Last Frontier

Posted:

In 1982, Dr. Dee traveled to Fairbanks, Alaska to deliver a newborn horse. And she never left. She then started her veterinary business out of the back of a pickup truck, performing lifesaving surgeries on animals in crazy locations. Some of her first surgery tables were the Anderson Lion's Club pool table and a church pew in Circle next to the wood stove with a kerosene lamp as a surgery light. Amazingly enough all the patients recovered just fine. But Dr. Dee has come a long way since then.
