RED ALERT RESCUE 2-20-14: STATUS URGENT: SHARE IF YOU CARE:
Caramel is a beautiful girl who has found her short life to be less than it should have been. He owners had good intentions but sometimes life best intentions do not become reality. She has come to rescue as her people found they could not care for her in many ways. She has been hit by a car and has a very broken leg. She sat for 2 days with this injury as the owners were unable to find any affordable help to have her get treatment or even pain meds. It was not due to a lack of trying but the doors to help just did not seem to open for them. However, they did the right thing and picked up the phone again and this time they got a hold of us, RED Rescue Every Dog. R.E.D. sprung into action and had this girl at the vets within hours. She is now comfortable and medicated and her leg has been x-rayed and splinted. We need your help so little Caramel can have a normal and happy life. It is a serious break and needs to plate to heal properly and in a timely manner. The rescue discounted priced vet and surgery costs on this dog are 2000.00 to 2400.00. We need your help to raise these funds so this Aussie puppy can recover. Please join us in this effort to put this young bright dog back on the path to well and happy. We have booked her plating surgery in good faith that we will have the sponsor support we need to cover these costs. Her surgery is booked for Friday the 28th. SHARE IF YOU CARE OR DONATE !
Please, make a donation to keep rescues like this happening. RED PO Box 1741 Kingston WA 98346 or go online to www.rescueeverydog.org RED is a long standing 501 C3

LILY NEEDS HER ADOPTIVE HEROS
Thursday February 20th 2014
Lily came to RED from a remote shelter. She is a smart sassy sweet girl. She is an amazingly pretty cute girl that loves to be with you. She is seeking a home that will love her for all of her days. She sadly had been un-spayed and allowed to have puppies. She is only for but had developed very early stage mammary tumors. They were found by RED staff during our monthly breast exams on the RED crew. We check all dogs regularly as this is very common as it is in in people. The mammary tumors were very small and were surgically removed immediately. We are seeking a home for her that understands they may still be more tumors that will appear and they will need to be removed if that happens. There is also a good chance there will be no more. Please email us if you would like more information on Little Lily.
We also need sponsors to cover the cost of the surgery RED took these funds out of our emergency find and they must be replaced before other dogs in need can be helped. Please honor the fight to give all temperament worthy dogs a chance at a good and happy life and sponsor Lily. Make a donation on our site and then email us if you would like to sponsor this little one.

VIOLET NEEDS YOUR HELP
Thursday February 20th 2014
Violet came from a remote shelter that could not help her.
Things looked bleak when please for help were failing. The shelter staff called for help to RED after several other rescues left her behind. She came to RED pregnant and with grade 5 patella's (bad knees) on both side. She is incredibly kind and adorable. She has never known a day that she can walk normally yet she is undaunted. Her good will towards all is clear to see and enjoy. We are calling for help to cover the cost of her required knee repair so she can live a long healthy happy life. We are sending out a plea to let this little one run with joy across green grass and be free to run up stairs and keep up with her playmates. Please go to the donation page and make a donation and then email email@example.com and let us know you are sponsoring this special soul. Violet and RED will be grateful. This surgery can not happen without sponsors.

RED ALERT HOLIDAY NEWS: Fantastic Outreach day in Port Gamble WA with RED Volunteers and Red Sonya and Katniss from RED's Animal Outreach Team. Thank you, Tango Zulu Imports, a wonderful fair trade store, for in allowing us to hang out with you today. Special Thanks to and Patricia, Shayla, Steven, Mike and me ;o) for spreading much Holiday Joy with the RED animals today. So many Happy faces getting to meet the Flemish baby bunny Katniss and Sonya was a total crowd pleaser. One person in particular touched my heart. A lovely senior lady made a quick trip down the side walk when she saw Sonya. He face shined and she wanted her picture taken with Sonya. She talked about how she had horses and what a wonderful time in her life it was. I am pleased we allowed her to have an Equine interactive moment again. Her face and happiness was priceless. Thank you, Sara and Robert of Center Valley Animal Rescue for swing by and saying "Hi" It was just a wonderful town and a wonderful day or fun and education with great company!

A Special Life
For RED the value of a life is not limited to one species or one issue. We honor and help exceptional animals when they are in need. Today was a day of goodbye for one such life. Today a tiny little life who had a big personality and lived life with joy joined the angels. She knew no self pity. She knew she was wonderful and indeed she was. Sweet Daisy came to RED at 4 weeks old unknown injuries. We quickly found she had a broken back but was undaunted by this. She was given care and sanctuary and love and in return she made friends with everyone that met her. Sweet Daisy we will miss your presence and we are happy you were a part of our lives. Thank you Melanie and Shayla for helping care for this special needs bunny and for loving her as much as I did. I wrapped her in a blanket and gave her back to the earth under the big cedar trees and placed Daisies on her grave. We were honored to have given you the chance to live. Good bye sweet angel girl may God give you legs that run like the wind in heaven.
By Melanie Forthum
A little survivor a baby cloud You made us proud...
With innocence and glory you are a bed time story
Every day a milestone in constant sway
Coin toss, tails? heads up never fails and it is your time to pass without a warning
Open the door forevermore... Find that sign and leave the pain behind
Bound away, out of sight and bask in heavens light

THIS DOG NEEDS SPONSORS AND A FOSTER.
Please contact RED if you want to help or make a donation or go to the home page and make a donation.
To start with Shadow needs x-rays and a full blood panel fecal and vet check.
Here is what the shelter staff says: Shadow is an 7 to 8 year old neutered Pomeranian that came to our shelter on July 20th because his owners could not care for him anymore. He does have some skin issues going on that are being addressed with flea medication, some topical ointment and medicated shampoos, so his skin is looking better. Also, Shadow's right rear leg has a malformation that causes his knee to turn inward and he cannot walk on that leg very well... However, he can still get around as he can hop on his left back leg. Shadow can be a quiet and mellow guy, but he is alert and friendly, barks/howls when he gets excited, and enjoys sitting in your lap or being carried around. He also behaves very well for baths! His former owners tell us that he gets along with kids as well as other dogs and cats. We would like to get some help for Shadow so he can have vet care and live in a home again
8-9-11 UPDATE: SHADOW STILL DOES NOT HAVE A FOSTER HOME BUT IS HANGING OUT AT RED'S OFFICE UNTIL SOMEONE DECIDES HE DESERVES A HOME TO STAY IN AS A FOSTER OR ADOPTION. HE ALSO NEEDS SPONOSRS TO HELP WITH HIS CARE COSTS. He is a nice little boy that is easy and just wants to be loved by someone. He has been to the vets and we are still working up a plan for him medically. He has a a grade 4 patellas issue (knee) in his right leg we will work in deciding what is best for him in time. Right now we ant to give him some time to put on weight and grow some hair back and get his system more stable via consistent care and good food. More pictures and updates to come please check in on his progress and help us help him.
SPONSORS WE THANK YOU: Debbie W., Robert E., Beverly G.,
Thank You Bobby for offering to foster little Shadow.

SPECIAL ADOPTION UPDATES
Wednesday December 22nd 2010
Special Adoption News:
Among the many R.E.D. adoptions recently we had some extra special ones as most of these animals were Major Medical Rescues. These special rescues were made possible because people made donations to save these lives. Major Medical and Special Needs cases are one of the areas of rescue we have always excelled in. They all come the R.E.D. because no one else would help them due to additional time and resources needed.
Copper a dog who came to R.E.D. with severe skin issues and has been with R.E.D. for a long time has joined his forever home. Thank you, Lynette for helping him to a new life.
Kenneth came to R.E.D. from a large shelter because he had bad knees. 2 bad ACL’s required stabilization surgery to correct them. Kenneth has now become a service dog for a young boy. He would not be helping a boy in need had R.E.D. not been there to help him. Thank you, Hazel for making this possible. Dr. Tony, we miss you and thank you and this last rescue of Kenneth is a now a happy ending. Your gift of giving lives on.
Paris one of our R.E.D educational team out reach rabbits who served in with us for a year found her forever home. Thank you, Shayla for helping foster her.
Oliver who had urinary crystals and was dropped of by his lifetime owner to be euthanized. R.E.D. got the call he needed help or his life would end. We excepted him as one of our medical cats and worked on his diet and got him medical care and the time he needed to be well. He was adopted by a fantastic home.
Mia Jaguar Cheetah and Ben a litter of kittens were diagnosed with the treatable condition called ringworm at a large shelter. Like many large shelters treating conditions like ring worm is not possible or allowed. So four lives only 9 weeks old would have extinguished. A call was made to R.E.D. and the kittens were transported quickly to our caring vets who help support R.E.D.’s lifesaving efforts. They were treated and are all now in loving homes. Four lives saved by the power of the word, “Yes.” Thank you Dr. Ginny and staff.
Roxy flat coat retriever was signed off for euthanasia by her homeless owners after she sustained serious injuries as the result of being hit by a car. We agreed to take her and have her treated. She had severe lacerations, head trauma and internal bleeding. In cases like Roxy’s we have to be able to know immediately we have the ability to help both physically and financially. Roxy recovered and has been pre-adopted by a family. She will be in her new home in the next 2 weeks. Thank you Linda and Patrick and Tiffany for your dedication to this great dog.
R.E.D.’s Funds are Very Low and We Need Your Help.
Our R.E.D. Major Medical Rescue and Special Needs efforts are now at Risk. For all for the animals above the shelter staff knows they can call R.E.D. for help in such case and we have always said, “Yes.” R.E.D.’s ability to say, “Yes we can help,” is only possible because of donations. Please, make a donation if you want to R.E.D. to be able to say, “Yes” to emergency medical cases in 2011. www.rescueeverydog.org to donate online or mail your donation to R.E.D. PO Box 1741, Kingston WA 98346
Thank you, to everyone who has made a donation this year!
Please, remember to include those that need you in your holidays. The work by rescue and need does not end for the animals. R.E.D. urgently needs donation to keep our program vital. We have seen this year bring more need and a drastic drop in donations. Please help make a donation or foster.
Where Do the Class Pets Go?
Thursday October 28th 2010
Turtle Needs Your Help
A Special Creature Needs New Housing
When school is out one question some may ask is where do the class pets go? Well some of them come to R.E.D. for the summer and weekends for foster care and vacation support care. One such creature. She is a little Three Toed Box Turtle. She is a adorable creature with an amazing, inquisitive personality. These turtles may easily live 30 to 50 years if properly cared for so they are huge commitment. She arrived into the world of Outreach Education after she was found very ill and injured by dogs. She still carries the small holes in her shell from being bitten. She has served as an educational animal at an Elementary school for some time. Her gift is teaching children about responsibility and awareness of what happens to many pets that become unwanted. She has given children a chance to learn, love and care for her.
This little one is now in R.E.D.\'s care along with our other educational outreach members. Upon her arrival we noticed that though well intended her current housing is not as it should be. Tiami and Shayla made a donation to help and have made some big changes like humidity, lighting, heat and bedding and expanded diet. However, the tank size was a big issue. We needed to provide her with a new improved habitat. We upgraded her world and care and make it easier for her to stay well and happy. This in turn will help many, many children learn from her and enjoy meeting her. Having children understand animals needs and responsibility is critical to our R.E.D. mission and the future of our brethren creatures. We need sponsors for her care and feed. She costs about 5.00 a week to feed and provide supplies like lighting, bedding, vitamins for her. If you would like to help a tiny animal educator, please, email firstname.lastname@example.org . If anyone is interested in a group session with the R.E.D. Rescue Education Outreach Team of small animals let me know.
Sponsors for this Life supporting and educational effort are an ongoing need.
Thank you, Beverly G. and Dr. Davies for sponsoring this companion animal!
This little turtle is happy and content at R.E.D. Due to the huge school budget cuts at the school she was at she is not longer able to stay at the school for the 2011/2012 school year. RED is still taking her on educational outreaches when possible.
Gone Without a Trace
Sunday October 10th 2010
Gone Without a Trace
Little Rosa woke up expecting nothing more than a normal day of pain and misery. Sitting in a small dirty cage she found herself being picked up and stuffed in a even smaller cage. More rabbits were put next to her and then they were put in a car. More cages full of rabbits were put next to her and on top of her. Then before she knew it she was being taken inside a very large building then set on a table. To her dismay more rabbits in pain were set right next to her. After a long time she was then picked up a few times handed around then put in a bigger cage away from all she knew. After what seemed like a whole day she was then set in another car this one much warmer and comfy. She was then taken to her new home. She was the put in the biggest cage she had ever seen in a nice room full of rabbits. in a few minutes she had fallen asleep. Soon she felt worse than ever and she soon had been packed full of water was being given medicine day and night. then one night she began to breath slower and slower she soon was asleep and then she was lost to the skies above forever.
We will always miss you Rosa.
By, Jr R.E.D. Volunteer Shayla P.
A rabbit with no name. A life and a soul for anyone one to take for $5.00 and no questions asked. They just needed you gone so they can clear a cage for the next round of rabbits born. That is how we first saw her. She was taken into the RED Rabbit Adoption program with the hope she would get a new chance at life. Sadly, this little bunny was extremely ill and arrived in our care with coccidia. This illness if not treated in time is deadly to rabbits. She was already to sick when she got here but RED tried everything to save her. We named her Rosa and loved her. She was only with us a few days before as we held her gentley as the light within her faded.
This is something that should never have happened. Rabbitries that sell rabbits to others and to children should test their rabbits and provide clean conditions. We have established an effort in Rosa's memory. The RED Rosa Test for Life Program. We are offering fecal testing to 4H children for their rabbits. May you rest in the arms of the angels little Rosa. You will not be gone with out a trace as we shall make your life and loss bring education and help to others. Please make a donation as $1.00 can test a rabbit and save lives and prevent children and rabbits from suffering.
VACATION CARE FOSTERS AND FOSTERS NEEDED
Saturday May 1st 2010
FOSTER VACATION CARE AND OTHER NEEDS
No foster parentts have requested vacation care at this time. Foster parents remember to plan ahead and give us notice.
R.E.D. Volunteers and Supporters,
We have a Urgent need for Vacation care for several of our RED dogs.
UPDATE: 2-20-2010 THANK YOU PACE ENGINEERING FOR HELP WITH THE ENGINEERED DRAWINGS.
December 29th 2009: Tonka is a happy boy and hanging out in retirement. The barn that shelters him and others is a quiet place and a place where they are happy and the world does not worry them. Sadly, we who care for him are not as happy or worry free. As housing the rescue horses and rabbits has become a possible issue. We started a process that we wish we had not now that we know the difficult nature of getting a structure of this age approved in the sea of county confusion even though it is very sound and attractive barn. Sorry if we sound frustrated but the process has been beyond reality. We need help keeping him happy along with his other 2 horse friends and the possible future rescues. We need someone that likes or is good with dealing with the county and a Building Engineer willing to donate services for engineered drawings of the exisitng structure and / or donations to cover the costs of replacing his stall and the hay storage area that is used for the rescued horses. To keep this barn sheltering rescues we need help with engineered drawings. The time line is immediate as the permit process was started and we were not told we needed the drawings until after we started. The other option is to replace the barn and start over with a new structure, (even though there is nothing wrong with the barn we have but of course new would be nice too). If there are any donors that would like to help the horse and the caregivers of the horses here would be grateful. There are so many horses in need right now displacing these rescues will impact the lives of other horses in need and stop us from helping more. Tonka is a senior and can not stay out in bad weather. He needs his nice cozy stall. I will be happy to chat and brainstorm with anyone that has pro bono legal, engineering or construction services or donations that might help solve the problem for the rescue horses and rescue rabbits. If I spend my time struggling on this I am not able to do my rescue work for R.E.D. and it costs lives and services for people and pets in need every day. email@example.com Please help! Tiami
March: Tonka is doing well and has had his feet trimmed. He has had his vet assessment and has a shoulder injury that has healed incorrectly and has affected many other parts of him. His hip and other shoulder are out of alignment from compensating for the injured front shoulder. His jaw was also partially dislocated. He had chiropractic and acupuncture treatments last week and did really well. His jaw was aligned and he yawned and yawned. Finally able to eat and yawn pain free for the first time in a very long time. On his leg. Before treatment he was dragging his foot and after he could trot with his foot elevated. He had a little happy trot around the field! He will need more treatments to continue to improve. At this point he is a big pasture pet that is a joy to be with. With lots of care and love he will be a more sound horse. His next vet visit will be on the 14th of March. He will have another chiropractic adjustment, acupuncture and a dental floatation. Everyone that meets him is so happy he is alive and well. He is gentle and kind. He loves his treats and his night time dinner. Yum! He loves children, being brushed, being petted and has been a sweet R.E.D. ambassador. // UPDATE: 4-21-08 Tonka is doing well. He is hanging with his horse buddies Taylor and Sunny. He loves to nap with the boys. It is funny usually one horse in a herd will stand watch but not these boys. Everybody is snoozing in the sun He has learned new things like waiting politely to enter his stall and exit his stall. He loves his stall and can hardly wait to go to bed at night and eat his goodies. His new friend the farrier will be here next week to do his hooves again. He is on some great supplements to help with his joints and healing and he has shown improvement on his leg and will be seen again by the vet for another adjustment in about 3 weeks. So, we wait for time and care to heal him and hopefully he will continue to leave his leg issues behind. UPDATE: 5-3-08 Tonka got his feet done and his hoof shape is much improved as he is using more equal pressure and he has had several on time hoof trims now. UPDATE: 5-7-08 Thank you, Superior Pet Foods, of Poulsbo for donating joint supplements for Tonka !!!UPDATE: 7-10-08 Tonka is still improving and at times appears to stand normally. Though he will probably never be a riding horse again. However, he is an awesome equine buddy and has personality plus. He has become the more dominant of the horses here so he is really feeling way better than when he came. Farrier reports his hooves now look awesome! So complete success on hoof recovery and reshaping. He is pretty sassy now and sweet Tonka is a Happy Horse! UPDATE: 10-22-08 TONKA IS DOING WELL AND IS READY FOR ANOTHER DENTAL REALIGNMENT. PLEASE HELP SPONSOR THIS KIND BOY.UPDATE: 2-10-08 WE COULD USED DONATIONS OF/FOR BEDDING BALES AND GRASS HAY! WE ARE ALSO LOOKING FOR HELP/DONATIONS ON HORSE HOUSING/SHELTERS AND THE COSTS FOR PUTTING THEM IN. Tonka just had his feet done on Monday and he is doing very well. He has been wearing his blanket again to keep warm on these chilly wet snowy days. 4-15-09: Tonka had a vet check and his feet done and he got the all clear from the vet. He is doing well. He will never be a riding horse again due to the severity of his old injuries but he has fun in the sun and loves life. Tonka is now availalbe for adoption to an approved stellar and fantastic forever horse home.
Shelter, care, bedding, hay and feed and hoof care and all his medical bills have been paid for by the following sponsors. Special Thanks to Tiami C., Mike P., Shayla P., Hazel B. for helping him with a sponsorship and vet costs and daily care tasks. Thank you, Melissa B. and Ray C. for you help with Tonka on vacation care.
More R.E.D. Tonka Financial Sponsors are needed for his ongoing care and treatments. We would also like horse experience volunteers that might want to come spend time with Tonka and his equine friends

RESCUE REQUIRES FUNDS
We are expecting a drop in funding for our program this year so the first and most obvious need is donations. We would like to prevent any cuts in services as the services are in more need than ever. If anyone has a fundraising idea or effort they want to put forward this would be an awesome time to help! In short the need is up and the donations are lower. Please help.
