Leech Lake Legacy shares shelters

Leech Lake Legacy newest program, The Yukon Project, is happy to announce they received a grant from the ASPCA this morning. We received a grant for $1,600 to provide shelter to outside rez dogs in either Leech Lake Reservation or Red Lake Reservation.
Since Leech Lake Reservation received 150 dog houses from PetSmart Charities, Leech Lake Legacy will be purchasing 9 large igloos with the grant money and distributing the igloos to Karen Good of Red Lake Rosie's Rescue, who will then distribute to the residents of Red Lake Rez.
Leech Lake Legacy came to be in May, 2011 because Karen Good reached out to her network of supporters to help a neighboring reservation. We have continued to have a very strong partnership. We are grateful to ASPCA for awarding Leech Lake Legacy with the $1,600 grant, and we in turn are thrilled to be able to purchase 9 large igloos for Red Lake reservation ♥
