Need for new roof fulfilled

 
We are very excited about the roofing project on the cathouse just completed on Sunday, April 13th. Joan Lawson and the Lawson Family Fund provided the funds to replace the shingles on the cathouse.
The shingles were crumbling and we were concerned that without replacing, we soon may have roof leakage and more damage. This building is critical for housing cats, smaller breed dogs and pups, as well as shelter supplies and materials.

We are so thankful for this grant which made it possible.

AFTER
 
With the increasing heating bills, Joan also donated funds to provide electricity and heat for the 3 coldest months this winter.
Also the Lawson Family fund provided funds for the purchase of a Honda 4-wheeler which will be used to make the shelter chores more manageable. 
The O’Sullivans donated a cart to be used on the 4-wheeler to haul water, food, and straw in the shelter area.
We appreciate all the support that Joan Lawson and the Lawson Family Fund have provided for Red Lake Rosie’s Rescue and the Red Lake animals over the years. Without this support we would never have developed to the level we have with the new well, new road, at least 8 of the 10 kennels, roofs on the 2 large kennels, and 75% of the storage shed, bobcat and cargo van. Additionally Joan has funded many neuter/spay clinics serving the Red Lake Reservation.

A big thank you to our supporters. A special thank you to Joan and the Lawson Family Fund.

Sincerely, Karen.

Joan and the Lawson Family Fund
has been such a kind and generous
support system for RLRR. Thank you so much for helping with much-needed repairs and supplies.

Glad you finished the job rather completely, and with a real skilled help to boot! Only shows us that roofing will really be complete and adequate if you cover all of the bases, such as aesthetics and functionality. Excellent!

Splendid! At least it's done now. Those things usually feel sort of menial, and would seem like quite a chore, that they tend to slip past our minds quickly, but they do not have to. It's nice and rather righteous that you've pegged that down right then and there and didn't wait for any eventualities. The next part is making sure that the roof will stay and truly deliver whatever weather we may experience. Great job!

The roof looks pretty nice and a lot neater too. It’s great to know that Joan Lawson and the Lawson Family Fund were able to provide the money you needed for this project, otherwise it would have been pretty expensive for one to carry all the expenses alone. Thanks for sharing this with us. Have a great day!
