Pins for Pets 07/23/2012 By andrew Like to bowl? Enjoy being in the running for prizes? Love animals? Help Chuck and Don’s fund raise in order to spay and neuter more cats and dogs and bunnies so we can all reduce the overwhelming epidemic of too many of these companion animals being born. Too many and there aren’t enough homes for all of the kittens and puppies, cats and dogs. There’s only one way to solve this – spay and neuter. Going bowling for the fix! Gather a team. Fund raise. Bowl – with a team or simply come and join the fun as an individual. Want to join a team with other Pet Haven volunteers? E mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Registration closes on Wednesday, Aug. 1 at 11:59 p.m. CST. Here’s the story of one mom and some of her kittens, and an additional orphan. Monique was rescued on the Red Lake reservation by a brother and sister. An additional kitten was found the next day and accepted by another mom with a litter. Well, Karen got a call from Vivian on Thursday, July 12th reporting that her little brother had been walking in the woods in her neighborhood and came across a cage sitting there- Inside the cage was a beautiful calico, we named Monique and her 4 tiny kittens about a week old at that time. Also in the cage was a little tabby we call Manny. Manny clearly was not Moniques kitten, but he was with the group. Manny nurses on Monique and she fondly grooms him. There was no food or water in the cage. It was very hot out and they were found just in time to save their lives. Monique arrived at Red Lake Rosie’s Rescue and was dehydrated. She was well cared for and she and her babies, Manny (who may be Missy), and 3 other abandoned kittens have been taken into Pet Haven foster care. Karen has taken in 2 kittens from Leech Lake impound now that she has a few open cages and they will, hopefully, be pulled for rescue along with the other young adults, moms and litter still at Red Lake. Transport was provided by volunteers who love animals – from the Bemidji area, from a Leech Lake Legacy volunteer and the help of other humane societies who took other unwanted dogs and puppies. It take a village. You’re a part of the village! Bowl, fund raise, help us all help more people who would like to keep their loved pet but do not have the financial means to spay and neuter.
