One more time...


EXTRA DAY FOR GARAGE SALE FUNDRAISER: 
THURSDAY, MAY 25, 8AM -6PM

Unfortunately, we had terrible weather Thursday, Friday and Saturday for the big garage sale fundraiser for Red Lake Rosie's Rescue.


We had so many donations of wonderful things and everything is set up, so we decided to try for a better sale on Thursday of this week at the same location at 6924 Newton Ave. S., Richfield, MN. Conveniently accessible two blocks east of Penn Ave. S. and 69th Street -- just blocks from Hwy 494, Hwy 35W, and Crosstown Hwy 62.


We need volunteers to help with the sale and to help pack up the remainder of items Thursday night, Friday and Saturday. Please contact Lynn Mecum at Lmecum4@msn.com or call/text 651-283-7668. Or contact Denise Luke at d4luke@gmail.com or call/text 612-269-2254. Thanks so much!! We couldn't have managed without our volunteers last weekend; Thanks to them!!


Be sure to come and shop, and spread the word among your friends and family!! We were very gratified to have shoppers who knew about Red Lake Rosie's Rescue in the first days of the sale :-)

Victim Zorro


RLRR got a call in midwinter that a large kitten had wandered to a residence and they requested us to pick it up. They said it had broken legs.

Susan and Justin answered the call and brought little Zorro to the shelter. While the cat's ears had no frostbite and the front legs showed no evidence of frostbite, the two hind feet looked crisp and made a sound like someone walking on wooden legs -- "Clunk- clunk- clunk."  The tail also had a wound.

ZORRO'S FEET
ZORRO'S TAIL

Jenny quickly made some contacts and the Animal Humane Society took in Zorro and performed surgery to remove the hind feet. Zorro was placed in a foster home, where he was thriving.

Here is an update from Zorro's foster mom:

"A well deserved rest for this pumpkin! Zorro is gaining energy every day! He's starting to play with toys and loves eating!! He loves to be held and purrs like crazy😍 His feet and tail amputations are healing beautifully and he's walking better every day."

When he was posted for adoption and he was quickly adopted.


This story is a reminder that, in spite of handicaps, the animals we rescue and serve are resilient and can overcome obstacles that we simply cannot comprehend.

Thank you to AHS, Jenny, transporters, and our supporters who make these miraculous rescues possible!
