First clinic of 2016 was a success!

March clinic went off without a hitch- not even a March snow storm. We had 12 surrenders. One little girl had frostbite injuries to her back feet. Thankfully, ACT V came to the rescue once again and will get her the treatments she deserves. 


A clinic first- 4 ferrets surrendered due to tribal rules. The owner had taken very good care of them was sad to see them go.

We also provided wellness visits and vaccines to 51 dogs and cats, many too young for surgery.

March clinic was to be shorter than our usual clinics. Scheduled to run Friday 9:00-3:00 and Saturday 9-12, we had customers by 8 a.m. Friday morning and quickly filled our initial limit of 15 animals. The amazing team from Act V continued to accept animals and the two doctors continued to performed surgeries until 6:30 p.m., completing 37 spay/neuter surgeries in 10 hours! The next day they started surgery before 8 am and completed 27 surgeries. A grand total of 64 spay/neuter surgeries in two days, plus 3 ER type surgeries to stitch lacerated wounds.


It was clear we would be hungry way before would make it back to the hotel for dinner. In true Rosie’s fashion we improvised an ordered pizza!

A big huge thank you to all the volunteers that made this clinic such a success. RLRR clinic volunteers Jackie Schmiedlin and Jennifer Godfrey, Dr. Lori Boettcher- Murphy of Cats Preferred Vet clinic in Plymouth, and her daughter Anne, the ACT V team of Dr. Vicki Schultz, Tara Post, Alisa Laramy, Barbara Mundis, Sandi Johnson, and her daughter Savanna Kettler.

Boy, you guys worked your butts off! How wonderful to see the spay /neuter numbers go up. And more folks bringing in their animals for care, and getting it. Thank you so much for what you do.

What tribal rule made it necessary to surrender the ferrets?
