Trip to Help Red Lake Rosie’s Rescue
Posted on August 26, 2012 by Dr. Fleming
I helped the good people at Red Lake Rosie’s Rescue on the Red Lake Reservation in northern Minnesota earlier this week. Minnesota Spay Neuter Assistance Program (MN SNAP) conducts spay neuter clinics in a large warehouse on the reservation multiple times a year to help Karen Good, the founder of Rosie’s Rescue, and all the other kind volunteers fulfill their mission “to reduce the overpopulation, homelessness, disease and malnutrition of companion animals on the Red Lake Reservation”.
Mostly I just handled the walk-in cases through the day so Dr Sue Spence and her amazing team of technicians could just focus on spays and neuters. Students from the U of MN veterinary school also volunteered their time and helped with vaccinating and medicating animals. I look forward to helping all these good people again in the near future.
DR. SUEI did end up bringing a nice kitty back that has a complicated wound to deal with. No, she will not be another clinic cat! Once we get Adrienne healed, we’ll find a good home for her with Pet Haven’s help. Pet Haven is aligned with many organizations like Rosie’s which is why we see Red Lake dogs being placed here in the Twin Cities through their kindness. Remember all these unwanted sweethearts and the people who work so hard to rescue them the next time you need a pet!
