Back in 2005 when we started Red Lake Rosie's Rescue, there was a lot to learn about rescuing, caring for, placing and transporting the homeless animals that needed help. Lots of challenges and tests came that would test us in extreme ways.
Many times I asked myself “Can we really do this? Without the support of Joan Lawson in the background helping with finances, it would have probably not have happened.
That winter, the shelter consisted of the aluminum panels and inside there was no protection. The dog houses were crates insulated with blankets and straw to keep the animals as warm as possible. I will not forget Neptune and Nemo, two little starving lab puppies that I picked up and managed to keep alive until I transferred them to Tri-county Humane Society. When we ran out of panels wire was wound around trees to keep the animals contained until we could place them.
