RMLR's biggest expense is vetting bills, and we wil be using all of the money raised for this year's 5K to replenish our vetting funds. In April 2022, RMLR committed to saving a mom and her 6 puppies who ended up at a shelter in New Mexico. During transport to Colorado, they were exposed to the Parvo virus. Tommy was the first one to land himself in the ER, testing positive for Parvo. His sister Hope was next, followed by Haven, Jack and Squiggles. We are happy to say that all of the puppies survived and are now happy and healthy however multiple day ER hospitilizations are very expensive. RMLR is lucky to be able to support these puppies with the help of all of our supporters. However, events like this deplete our funds. We are looking to raise $20,000 to help cover the costs incurred for these sweet puppies.
