Winter needs at Red Lake Rosie's Rescue

With winter approaching we are well prepared with the new straw, but are in need of tarps and zip ties to insulate the 22 outdoor dog kennels. The tarps are necessary to keep the snow and cold winds out and help the animals stay warm.
KENNELS WITH TARPS IN FALLWe need all sizes of poly tarps -- 8 x 8, 8 x 10, 10 x 12 -- any sizes as we cut them to fit.

We apply the tarps with the medium and large size poly zip ties which are also spendy.

KENNELS WITH TARPS IN WINTERWe have a team coming October 22-24 and we could get some of these done. Winter typically arrives here the first week of November and we would like to be prepared.

We thank anyone who has a tarp or a package of zip ties to donate for the animals.

OLD COLLAPSED HAYSHED IS GONEThe old collapsed shed has been burned down and replaced with a new one!!
I am happy to report that the straw shed was completed today--what an improvement!!

NEW STRAWSHED AND STORAGE SHED300 bales of fresh dry straw is scheduled for delivery on Saturday. It will be kept nice and dry from the elements.

STRAWSHEDThank you again to the ABE! Fund for the straw which will keep many dogs and pups warm this winter!!

That is one foxy building - it looks so professional - they both do, standing together. Karen has really built things up since I first went out to her house 5 yrs. ago; and I'll bet things are much improved over when she first started the rescue. You're all that and a bag of chips, lady! :D
