Red Lake Rosie's Rescue hosted the second 2014 neuter/spay clinic on April 24-26 with vet work supplied by a team from MN SNAP headed by Dr. Lisa.
The team did an outstanding job neutering or spaying 96 community and shelter animals as well as providing emergency care for animals with quills and other needs. Many large female dogs were spayed making the clinic especially successful.
The service of grooming was provided by Julie and her mother Norma. Their hard work makes life so much better for many dogs that otherwise would not get trimmed and bathed.

Once again, Claudia provided great vegetarian cuisine which provides nourishment for everyone. In addition, thanks to Tera for her homemade vegan goodies and thanks to Rita for her delicious homemade treats.

One of the very positive indicators that we are making progress in controlling the unwanted animal population on the Reservation is that we only took in five surrendered puppies at this clinic. In the past we have taken in scores of surrendered unwanted puppies and kittens. Also, we saw less mange, indicating that the animals are getting better care. More community members were saying “thank you” and were pleased with the services we
The weather was not the best, but, in spite of that, our volunteers and MN Snap did a great job of which they can be proud!
Our volunteers included Amy, Kim, Allison, Jill, Rita, Benay, Elizabeth, Nicholas, Tom, Nancy, Carol. And, special thanks to Whitney, our young local volunteer, who keeps us all on track!
We thank everyone who was here and the many people who work in the background including those who make food, rescues that take animals, and those who contribute funds to cover the cost of the clinics. RLRR pays MN SNAP per animal for their services and needs to have funds in the account to pay for this vital service.
Thank you all!
