The day after celebrating Thanksgiving with family in northern Minnesota, my two teenage children, Q and C, and I stopped at Red Lake Rosie's Rescue to drop off supplies and transport 10 puppies to rescues in the Twin Cities area.
After getting a tour of the improvements (new outdoor kennels, bedroom and bathroom in the cathouse, etc.), we started rounding up the pups. Karen was organized, as usual, with paperwork and crates ready to go.
The pups settled down pretty quickly, with the occasional sad cry from Jackson (pitbull mix who came in with a suspected home-done/half-done tail crop, who had surgery by a vet before transport out to Animal Ark). He's the sweetest bulldozer of a dog! Rock solid muscles.
Q and C enjoyed cuddling two of the pups that went to Pet Haven.
Beautiful Ogema settled in and never made a peep the entire trip.
We made a stop at Tri-County Humane Society in St. Cloud. Workers said they get quite a few requests for shepherd mixes, so let's keep sending shepherds there! Volunteers from Pet Haven and Animal Ark were waiting at my house and the transfer was made quickly.
It's so satisfying to move a few more Red Lake animals into foster homes and shelters for eventual adoption. Thanks to all who help!
