October clinic

Another successful Spay/Neuter Clinic! The October clinic was the final Red Lake Rosie’s Rescue clinic for 2015. With MN SNAP’s help, 94 animals received surgeries, and another 37 animals received wellness checks and vaccinations by our volunteer vet Dr. Katie Cartledge!

We had plenty of donated doggie jackets and sweaters that we were able to give away to those small dogs that needed them, especially those 20 dogs that were groomed.

The larger dogs were able to receive a dog house and straw to help them stay warm through the northern Minnesota winter. A total of 63 houses were given away thanks to the Native American Humane Society.

This is the first year we asked the RL residents for a suggested donation of $10 for services received. Nearly 80% of the residents were able to donate, many offering more if they could. Two boys, ages 8 and 9 years old, had been saving for an Xbox, but had a change of heart and decided to donate to help the animals of RLRR. They brought in their savings jar and donated $30.93! They didn’t even have animals receiving services! More about their story in the next blog post.

Since our last clinic, a favorite local volunteer, Destiny Harris, age 14, created a poster board for RLRR to display at our clinics. It shares many photos of the animals and volunteers, and shares the mission and goals of RLRR. Thank you Destiny!

Once again we had a volunteer crew from Thompson-Reuters. Thank you Thompson Reuters for being such a generous company! They not only pay their employees to volunteer but also donate to the charity for which they volunteer. Red Lake Rosie’s Rescue is fortunate to benefit from such wonderful volunteers!

Again, our volunteers were awesome, and we couldn’t do it without them! A super heartfelt THANK YOU to Claudia, who works behind the scenes to prepare all the meals and snacks so that the volunteers have plenty to eat. And thank you to Tera for the homemade desserts! They were yummy! Special THANK YOU to all our volunteers who shared their time and energy with us- Karen, Jill, Kim, Wendy, Steph., Jackie, Lynn, Loretta, Britta, Destiny, Dr. Katie Cartledge of St. Francis Animal Hospital (a RLRR partner clinic). And Thank You to the staff from MN SNAP who were fabulous as always!
