Red Lake dogs arrive!

I had the good fortune of traveling up north again to Red Lake Rosie's Rescue. Karen of Red Lake is currently inundated with dogs and cats who have been abandoned, abused or neglected and Pet Haven has been working with Red Lake for almost two years now, bringing dogs into our foster program. This week, we transported 7 dogs back: 3 little 6 week old puppies, Lauren (a 4 month old chocolate lab fluff ball mix of some kind), Junior (a 4 month old springer mix), Rae Ann (beagle mix) and Ahnung (a 5 year old boxer mix).

It was amazing how good all the dogs were on the 5+ hour trek to the cities. We made a stop in St. Cloud to drop off 3 cats for Karen at the St. Cloud humane society, let the pups out, and were back on the road.
Karen Good of Red Lake Rosie's Rescue is an incredible woman who has made a huge difference for the animals at Red Lake. You can visit their blog to read more heartwarming stories.

My friend Jessie (pet portraiture artist of Stray Dog Arts) traveled up north with me and did a beautiful job of putting into words an experience that I find is beyond words. In the midst of tragedy and heartache what shines through at Red Lake Rosie's Rescue is a spirit of hope and a compassionate defiance of a woman who fights tirelessly on behalf of abandoned, abused and neglected animals.

Stayed tuned to our blog for updates on the dogs. For more information on any of them email
