We have made lots of improvements this fall at Red Lake Rosie's Rescue.
Firstly, we put 2 new roofs on our 2 heavy duty kennels. We have tarped in the kennels and now will be able to safely use these kennels as we can shovel off the snow during the winter months, and keep the rain out is the summer.
Also we remodeled the first 4 2/pod kennels we got in 2007 and 2008 with new heavy duty panels to hold larger dogs. The panels are heavy duty welded steel. We removed the old panels which were patched and not in good condition. This added 8 nice spaces for dogs or puppies.
We added 2 gates at the entrances of the shelter as well as some fencing.
Also since the shelter area is lowlaying we have a problem with water and were able to get 4 loads of #5 gravel, sewer rock, and split rock to improve the shelter grounds.
Funding for these projects was provided by Joan Lawson, Disney Foundation grant written by Howard Goldman of HSUS, and USDA Grant.
We are so happy to have these improvements before winter.
Sincerely, Karen RLRR
