Youth Works group two led by Ted and Joe came from St. Peter Lutheran Church in Schaumburg, Illinois, and St. Ambrose Catholic Church in Seymour, Indiana, on July 13 and 14.
Once again the groups worked diligently clearing the land, mowing, cleaning crates, washing fans, and cat trees.
Some of the volunteers worked in the cathouse doing all the cat cages.
There was always time to socialize with the animals.
We want to thank Youth Works for all their nice work. Never a complaint when they undertake the most difficult tasks!

It is the 7th year that Youth Works has partnered with Red Lake Rosie’s Rescue and provided volunteer labor to give the shelter its annual “facelift.” The first group came the last week of June and reorganized and cleaned the food shelf area.
All food and supplies were removed from the shed and the food was replaced with the new in the back and the older in the front. The volunteers also opened all the sample packages of food so it could be used.
They built the fire pit used for our Wednesday night group meeting. One the way back to Red Lake they mowed and cleaned the cemetery.
This group came from Monticello, Minnesota and Chicago, Illinois all the way to the Red Lake Reservation where they not only help RLRR but also other programs on the reservation such as Boys and Girls Club.
We appreciate all their help making the shelter and grounds so much nicer for the companion animals that we serve. Thank you, Youth Works!
