Loss of an eye doesn't impair Athena's happiness

Athena arrived at Red Lake Rosie's Rescue with quills in her face. She was lucky to move to ACT V Rescue and Rehabilitation for foster care and medical treatment. 

She lost her eye, but found an amazing dad who renamed her Abby!

Check out her original story here:

Kitten rescued from the trash

This little kitten that we have named Endora was abandoned at the Red Lake garbage dump in a paper Pampers box. She is only two pounds and very lucky she did not freeze to death before she was rescued! We are grateful to ACT V for offering to take her in to foster care.

Sometimes it's just too much...
This is Endora ~ she will arrive Wednesday.
She was left in the dumpster in a paper box. She only weighs two pounds.
Thank God for Red Lake Rosie's Rescue who saved her life and for Courtney B. who stepped up to take her on such short notice.
Honestly, if the world only knew how much we love our foster families... they are unsurpassable.
We have such respect for you and your level of dedication.

Endora arrived safely last night and was tucked in with Vicki for the evening.
She's a busy little girl and likes to move!
It won't be long before she's available for adoption. She'll move to her foster home once we coordinate with CB (her foster mom.)

Endora is doing well in her foster home. The resident cats have met her and so far so good. She is an absolute doll and her foster mom doesn't think she'll be fostering for very long...

Shannon, Ben, Morgan and especially Chewy!

Special Thanks to Craig Berdan!

Craig Berdan is a wonderful man, who does so much for reservation animals -- both Red Lake and Leech Lake. He took the time to coordinate and transport cats for Red Lake and oversee the "cats to the U of M vet" project. A special thanks to Craig!

We are so happy that a group of 11 great cats from Red Lake Rosie's Rescue went to the U of M vet school on November 14th to be totally vetted and vaxed pro bono.  Jenny Fitzer and Leech Lake Legacy organized this great opportunity for us. 

Two of the cats, Camille and Mary, moved on to Feline Rescue for adoption after they were treated and the remainder all found placement with rescues in the metro, too :-)


Gracie has a sister!

She is much beloved in her home and has a wonderful life, Please check out our earlier posts about her:

Love from the Salmon Crew!

Merry Christmas!

We would like to wish you a safe, warm and Happy Holiday season and let you know what my Red Lake pups were up to this year – Phoenix, Dylan, Casey & Apollo. 

Phoenix (aka Cinnamon) is still incredible. She has so much energy it’s fun to watch her try to get Dylan and Casey to play with her. She eventually wins and they go running out to the field to chase each other and play. She is learning to talk like Casey, but can’t quite get the howl down, but has so much fun trying! She is still amazingly smart and is such a sweetheart. She’ll always be my little girl among all the boys! I can’t believe she’s 7 years old this year!

Dylan is doing great too! He is very beautiful and has the “husky” way of talking. Quite different than Casey and Phoenix. He loves people – he thinks everyone’s job is to pet him and for him to give kisses. He likes to watch neighbors – he’ll lay down by the fence and just watch them… hoping they’ll come over and pet him! He really likes one of my indoor cats – Axel. When Axel lays upside down, he’ll lay next to him and just stare at him. I think he wonders why he won’t play with him! His nickname of “Prince Dylan” is a perfect representation of him! Dylan turned 6 years old this year.

Casey (aka Eddie) is doing very well. He loves to play with Phoenix and has quite the distinct way of howling / talking. It is very funny seeing how Phoenix tries to mimic him….but she can never quite get the hound howl down like Casey. When he gets excited, he still does his wiggle butt. Phoenix always gets his wiggle butt….we get one once in a while, but not as often as she does. He has many toys and still likes to walk around with a toy in his mouth – whether it’s his “monkey” or a stuffed rabbit. He is quite the crazy little boy – I don’t think he’ll ever grow up. I can’t believe he’s 4 years old. He has quite the personality.

Apollo (the white shepherd) passed away the end of October – he was 13 years old. Dylan and Apollo were quite close – and it took several weeks before Dylan was his normal bubbly self. We still miss him dearly.

Thank you Karen and everyone at Red Lake for helping these kids and all the precious animals in need at Red Lake. Your dedication and commitment is quite remarkable. I love these kids beyond words – thank you for saving them. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Take Care,

Tammy, Cliff, Phoenix, Dylan and Casey
