Karen's summary of the clinic

We are happy to report that a number of animals were transported out during and immediately after the clinic on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, April 24 - 26.
We were able to spay and neuter 63 dogs and 43 cats during the clinic sponsored by DJ and T Foundation, Lawson Family Fund and Mobile Service Unit of AHS with Dr. Kim Culbertson.
Delicious vegetarian food was provided by Claudia and DeeDee . Lots of donations including food, paper products, and animal foods came from Linda and Animal Ark, too.
A large load of dog and cat food came to Red Lake Rosie's from the Shed in Chaska one week before the clinic. One pallet of this food was given to community dogs and cats during the clinic. Tom and Nancy O'Sullivan drove all the way to deliver the food to the shelter.
Lots of other people made financial donations. The Macks have been most generous in sponsoring clinics. We also are indebted to the rescue groups who take the animals and place them in good homes and the transporters who get them where they need to go. It takes many people to make the clinic a success to help the Red Lake animals.

Also special thank yous to all who sponsored 15 cots in "Cots for Clinics" which will be very useful during clinics for volunteers who stay in the warehouse. We will be using them during the May Clinic.

The metro team members DeeDee & Crystal and Sharae, who is a teenager from Red Lake, were the faithful volunteers working very hard to make it all work. There are so many, I cannot name them all.
Our transporters are DeeDee, Crystal, Mike, Tom & Nancy and Carolyn. Also Lauren and Mike who made the large Easter transport to clear out kennels for the clinic surrenders.

Sincerely, Karen
