Rae Ann: Loving life in her foster home

Rae Ann is a 1-2 year old hound mix who came in to Pet Haven shortly before Thanksgiving from Rosie's Red Lake Rescue.

As you can see, it hasn't taken Rae Ann long to make herself right at home in her foster home. She has just enjoyed her first Christmas as an indoor dog and treasured family member -- there's no going back now that she's had a taste of the good life. Pet Haven wouldn't have it any other way!

Here's an update from her foster:
Well, she is a bit of a goof ball. Very playful with Annie [beagle] but especially Rufus [Great Dane mix]. It's like they are in love. They follow each other around all the time and rough house inside and outside. She is starting to really play with toys and loves all and any treats. Her tail is healing [she had "happy tail" - where she made the end of her tail bleed from wagging it so much] but is always going, she wags it like a propeller (round and round) She loves the backyard, chasing rabbits and barking at the squirrels in the trees. I had to block the top of our compost though because one night I looked out and she was standing in it and having a snack! What a silly girl, and she came inside with Cauliflower on her feet,Yuk. She's just going to make someone really happy.

These happy beginnings would not be possible without the tireless work of Karen Good and her volunteers at Rosie's Red Lake Rescue. They are currently a couple hundred dollars away from their Holiday fundraising goal of $5,000. All Minnesotans know that winter is especially brutal in northern Minnesota. Funds raised will be used to provide shelter and food (they burn more calories keeping warm in the winter) for the animals at RRLR.
