Phoenix has a new suit.
And yes, we just couldn't live with a brown Gentle Leader, so we got him a red one!
(He looks good in red.)

Jacob and his new family are so HAPPY!


Jacob came to Red Lake Rosie's Rescue last year after brutal abuse, but he recovered his health and has found happiness with his new family, Chris and his mom, Mary.


UPDATE FROM MARY:
Me & Jake having some FUN after dinner and our long long walk!

He is such a clown and loves to play...all the time! Gotta love a playful, happy puppy! :-)

World is better with Abner in it!


After a week at the vet, Abner was starting to eat a little and could stand for short periods of time, so he came back to the Red Lake Rosie’s Rescue. While he is still very fragile, he is able to eat more now, and exercises to gain a little strength daily. He is very food motivated at this time and eagerly awaits each meal. He is staring to show interest in living and responds to kindness.


You can see that his head is disproportionately large and his body is stunted from the lack of nourishment as a growing puppy. We believe he is only 7-9 months old.



Abner has a  serious cut on his back and several wounds on other parts of his body. The wound on his rear leg is the most serious at this time and he cannot put pressure on the leg. X-rays did not reveal a broken bone, but a new X ray will be taken soon. We will worry more about the leg after we think he is strong enough.


Helping animals like Abner is our mission at Red Lake Rosie's Rescue. We want to make up for all the misery he has had in his life short life and ultimately find him a loving home where he will know no further suffering. For now, Abner is happy to know that he is safe, loved, and, most of all, gets fed his meals.


Thank you for your generous donations to RLRR help animals such as Abner with good quality food and funds for medical care. Without the help of Aris, the rescuer, and these funds, Abner would have had no hope. He would have simply died and would be unknown. The world is so much better with Abner in it!!

Abner arrives at RLRR near death

ABNER AFTER A WEEK OF VET CARE
We first met Abner when Aris brought him to the shelter as surrender- then Abner was near death. His temperature was dropping and he lay motionless in the crate. Aris then drove him to the vet as we wanted to get him help.



ABNER ON ARRIVAL TOO WEAK TO MOVE
Abner lingered between life and death for several days and was on iv fluids. He was severely malnourished and dehydrated. Finally, Abner began to eat small amounts of A/D canned food and had enough strength to stand up and then take a few steps.



Abner spent the next week in the vet hospital getting both love and the start of nutrition. Dr. Bob, Dr. Marcine, Terry, and Lori were giving him the best care and attention possible. He has this very sweet disposition and wins the hearts of all that meet him.

Sister Mamas!



On March 29, WE R Furr Feline Rescue, on the White Earth Reservation, posted this note with a video on their Facebook page:
 
Picked up this brood tonight. These are 2 sister cats that each had 5 kittens a week apart. One group is a week old & the other group is 2 weeks old. The moms take turns feeding the kittens. They will be going to a foster home tomorrow. Then when the kittens are old enough, everyone will be spayed/neutered, shots etc. & be adopted out to good homes. With this addition to the rescue tonight, we are at our highest number so far.
SISTER MAMAS AND BROOD AT PET HAVEN
 

I wasn't surprised when I saw that Red Lake Rosie's Rescue stepped up to help find placement for this large group. Both Pet Haven and Feline Rescue offered to take them. Then we got word from White Earth that a group of six small orphaned kittens had been turned in to them. So the Sister Mamas traveled from White Earth to Red Lake to Pet Haven just briefly and then to their foster home with Feline Rescue. The six orphans are headed to Pet Haven.
