Sandy came to Red Lake Rosie's Rescue on Christmas Eve. The owner sadly said she had too many animals to feed so she gave up her cat Snickers and her dog Sandy.
Snickers left for AHS and was since adopted. Snickers was a great cat and only spent a few days at Red Lake Rosie's. He had been neutered at our clinic previously.
Sandy went to the vet on December 26th where it was determined that she had heartworm. X-rays of her hip also indicated an old break in the femoral ball. Sandy went back and got heartworm treatment on December 30th and 31st.
Once again ARVSS (Animal Rescue and Vet Support Services) stepped up and offered to take Sandy in spite of a her health problems, but since they are located in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, ten hours away from RLRR, a lengthy transport had to be organized.
Karen Good met Nancy O'Sullivan in Gonvick; Nancy drove to Cass Lake to meet Jenny Fitzer and the Leech Lake Legacy transport to Golden Valley. DeeDee picked Sandy up there and kept her overnight. Kristin Tanchin picked up Sandy the next day to drive her to Black River Falls, Wisconsin, to meet an ARVSS representative who drove the final leg of the journey. Thanks to all these people who help the animals get to their new start in life so regularly.
Sandy is a beautiful dog and will be looking for a home soon!
