Holiday fundraiser!

Red Lake Rosie's Rescue is having a special fundraiser in December. We have commitments for matching funds totaling $6000 -- Friends of Flicka ($1000) and the Lawson Foundation ($5000). For every dollar donated by Red Lake Rosie's Rescue supporters, that amount will be matched by the fund. If we can match the entire fund, that's $12,000!

Well, winter is full blown at the RLRR shelter. Here are some pictures when the frost is on the trees and it looks like a storybook wonderland. We have 20 inches of snow which has fallen so far and another 8 inches may be on the way.

We are so happy to have the straw shed, full of nice dry straw to keep the dogs warm. It is a challenge to keep smaller puppies warm- so 2 are caged in the cathouse. The 24 cats, of course, are warm in the cathouse as well.

We have plenty of food for a while, and the snow plow attachment on the Bobcat which makes a world of difference. No more getting stuck at the shelter.

So - all in all- winter is here but we are prepared and well stocked with all that we need to make it through. We are hopeful that we will have a successful Holiday fundraiser to get funds for vetting, medication, and paying our electricity/heating bill.

As of December 1, we have transferred out 744 dog/cats and 1 rabbit and neuter/spayed nearly 700 animals in 2010 with one month to go. This will be a record year for neuter/spays.

Thank you for your support of Red lake animals.
