Month of May State Bank of Faribault choose Rescue 55021 to be their Non-Profit. So far,they’ve collected $225 for the Rescue and purchased $290 in Rescue T-shirts
Pet Smart, Wes is back running the store and wants our participation back. We will continue to work with PetSmart under these conditions. Rescue 55021 will participate in the required amount of adoption events Pet Smarts holds. Pet Smart continues to gather donations. Rescue 55021 cats will be the only cats in the Faribault Pet Smart cat room to keep better and strict control on the condition of the cats. This is a big benefit for us, we now can start getting cats adopted again and donations will be coming in again. Pet Smarts adoption weekend was 5/18/19. We had to pass on this event only because we had prior engagements with Karl’s in Medford
We did not do micro chipping at Karl’s event.
Theresa is working on getting Foster Folders for dogs out to everyone.
Next Fundraiser event is the Yard Sale, June 13 th , 14 th and 15th during Heritage Day. It is considered a city-wide garage sale. We are on KDHL radio station prompting this event. Joe’s Sports Bar & Grill Food truck will be present at the Yard Sale as well.
Everyone please keep Sharing on Facebook that we are collecting donations. We are taking anything to sell that is in decent condition. No clothes or stuffed animals, please.
Yard Sale will be Thursday, Friday 9-5 and Saturday 9-1, Sat will vary depending on the traffic of people. The parade is Saturday to start at 6:15, people participating in our float please be there by 5:45pm.
Please Share anything on the Public Rescue 55021 Facebook Page, the more Sharing the better!
We have many volunteers for Yard Sale but the more volunteers the better, we will work on a sign up sheet for this day so people can sign up for shifts.

We are working on changing the Facebook Address to be correct, so people can start Checking In and we can get more advertising out on social media.
Abby really needs to find a Foster or even better a forever home. She has now been in and out of rescues for about 2 years now. She is a great dog. Gets along with kids just not with other animals. And would benefit from a fenced yard. Please Help Us Find Her a Home!
