On Friday night February 20, 2015 at approximately 9:30 p.m. Polly McMaster, Red Lake Rosie's Board member received a puppy we named Phoenix from a Red Lake Police Department Conservation Officer.
This animal was found at the Redby garbage dump on the Red Lake Indian Reservation. Phoenix was dehydrated, malnourished and allegedly had a propellant on him and was set on fire. He laid on an old blanket that smelled like gasoline.
Red Lake Rosie's Rescue was able to arrange transport for Phoenix to Minneapolis through Leech Lake Legacy today. ACT V Rescue and Rehabilitation took in Phoenix and he is under the care of Dr. Vicki Schultz.
|EXAM WITH DR. VICKI|
Marilou Chanrasmi met Dr. Vicki at her clinic when Phoenix arrived and took some beautiful photos. She reports that he is an absolute sweetheart. Dr. Vicki will provide details on his condition (and treatment/prognosis). The basics are that he is probably five months old, but weighs just 19 lbs and he was very hungry.
|MALNOURISHED AND DEHYDRATED|
The stench of charcoal and burned fur was very strong. Truly amazing how sweet and resilient these precious beings are despite what they have endured. We are thankful to all involved in his rescue and help.
