The first spay/neuter clinic of 2015 was held April 13-15 with many hardworking and experienced volunteers returning to support the animals and people of Red Lake. Also volunteering her time and expertise was "bonus vet" Dr. Heidi Stucki of Galesburg, Michigan. Heidi became aware of Red Lake Rosie's from volunteer Deb Fjetland.
After driving 12 hours to Deb's home and then another 6 hours to Red Lake from southern Minnesota, Heidi was ready to do what she does best...care for animals. Not only did she tend to cats, dogs, and a rabbit, but there were ferrets as well!
|DR. HEIDI AT THE CLINIC|
Those of us that worked with Heidi at this clinic were treated to her taking the time to share her know how with us, especially when it came to cats. Speaking of cats, Heidi fell in love with a big black tom cat that clearly had a tough life.
As fate would have it for this beat up boy, Chief Man Cheex is now King of Cedar Pond with numerous other animals and Heidi's husband Phil. Much appreciation goes to Heidi for everything she did to support the clinic and giving Chief Man Cheex the life he deserves.

NOTE FROM KAREN:
Red Lake Rosie’s was so lucky to get Dr. Heidi as a vet for the April clinic. She was a great vet and we are hoping to get her back.
She traveled so far and stayed for the whole clinic giving her undivided attention to the animals and the people. Dr. Heidi fell in love with Aaron, an older intact male cat that came from White Earth Reservation. Teresa picked up this cat who reportedly had been hit by a car. Aaron came in in bad shape and spent 3 weeks at the Red Lake Rosie's shelter.
|THE CHIEF CLEARLY LOVES DR. HEIDI AND HIS NEW HOME|
He had another stroke of luck when he went to the clinic to be neutered and there he met Dr. Heidi. She renamed him Chief Man Cheex and took him on a road trip all the way back to Michigan where he is enjoying life! Thank you Dr. Heidi!
