Mission

Rosegate Furever Home is committed to providing safety, security, and comfort to pets of all ages. We are limited to the number of animals that can be accepted. We are not a warehouse of cages but a cozy old farmhouse. It is very important that the animals that we do take in are not aggressive or possessive so the animals live in harmony and happiness together. We provide a loving home, high-quality foods, veterinary care, compassion, comfort, and peaceful home for neglected, abandoned, rescued, or special needs dogs and cats.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The problem or need Rosegate is attempting to address is a common concern in most rural environments throughout the United States of America as well as most countries... providing homes for senior and special needs pets that have been abandoned or lost their home for whatever reason. The Rosegate model is one where a small scale home environment is created with life in care providers and not an institutional setting for the remaining life of the animal. Adoption of older animals can be a large consideration for prospective persons looking for a pet and those that are unable to comprehend the care sometimes return these poor animals only compounding the trauma and loss. Here at Rosegate, we give these unwanted pets a forever home.

Rosegate Furever Home

Rosegate Furever Home is a small non-profit 501(c)3 organization, located in Correll, Minnesota. Originally founded and funded by ourselves (husband and wife team) and now assisted with some donations. While we are pleased with this, we are limited to the number of animals and what kind can be accepted. Not every animal gets to live at Rosegate. It is very important that the dogs and cats that we do take in are not aggressive or possessive so the animals live in harmony together. We provide a loving home, high-quality foods and vet care, compassion, and comfort to fur babies. Rosegate also fosters mother cats and their litters until adoption age, We provide in-house hospice and long-distance Reiki healing too. We have/had pets with special conditions like; cancer, chronic kidney disease, Lyme disease, diabetes, anxiety, etc. Once an abandoned/rescued animal comes to us, we hope that we create such an environment that they will intuitively know they will be safe rest of their life.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Rosegate has one simple accomplishment that is prominent and ever-present.
Providing a lifelong home for senior and special needs pets. This goal is complemented by the upgrading of an old farmhouse to provide safe and comfortable conditions for dogs and cats who have various special needs.
The accompanying yard space is also being gardened to provide enjoyment during the more pleasing weather.
Here at Rosegate Furever Home, the perimeter fence has been fully installed around the three acres of property so we can keep the critters safe inside and the wilder life out. We have also just replaced all the old windows and doors here in the old farmhouse and that helps with keeping things warm and a clear view for the kitty bird watchers. We have also completed the 'Cat-nesium', an indoor playground for the cats. Most importantly, a few new, young, and 'special needs' rescues have been added to the ranks with happy results. We have also changed our name from Rosegate Retirement Home for Dogs and Cats to Rosegate Furever Home.
Rosegate now also fosters mother cats and their litters until adoption age. We provide house Hospice. We have taken care of pets with Lyme disease, Canine Idiopathic Vestibular Disease, Chronic Kidney Disease, Diabetes, Squamous Cell Carcinoma, and Anxiety. Recently we lost GiGi (16), CeeCee (21), and Mr. Mau (5) and are currently giving a home to Sammy, Lucy, Augustina, Kahili, and Miss Millie (dog) diagnosed with demodectic mange. These cats have some anxiety, weight management, and emotional bonding issues.
We continue helping special needs animals if we have enough room.

Rosegate has a simple strategy for achieving its mission.
One paw in front of the other. It is a cute saying but proves to be true.
We invest all our resources into a step-by-step improvement process.
Since the Rosegate model is to live with the animals and provide constant companionship any improvements to the property are actually infrastructure for the animals. Our patience is a virtue to prevent any frustration with any funding shortcomings. As we slowly go forward we use the time to bring in another animal one at a time and allow them the opportunity to become comfortable with their new home. To address the funding issues we are constantly networking with the animal community and expanding our knowledge and experience. We find small but novel ways to attract donations and as we grow in reputation this attracts larger and continual sponsors. Rosegate is a small and simple project that does not require excessive and stressful management. Calm and quiet make for a peaceful home environment for the wayward animals we give a home to.

Rosegate already has several foundational supports in place.
The property is owned outright and has fully functioning buildings including the retirement home facility.
A stable source of income is also secured with a small additional supplement.
Rosegate has been slowly developing a social network of friends and supporters and also has been recognized by several large retail corporations and has accepted their assistance as offered.
The home currently has two live-in staff members to attend to the animal's care.
With continued effort, this base of resources should expand with time and patience.
Persistence and passion are the fuel that fires the engine. Obstinance counts too.

What have we accomplished so far and what's next?
Rosegate has officially and legitimately been operating for a few years now and has been supported by friends and family globally. Our motto is "One paw in front of the other" and that is the steady pace we set.
As we continue to work, the Furever Home (buildings and grounds) improves with time and effort.
Strong hands and a big heart bring progress to the eyes and mind. This is not rocket science but a labor of love.
What is next for Rosegate Furever Home you ask... a continuation of the course.
If the model proves well then nothing would be better than knowing others have followed suit and have done likewise. Since we are a tiny operation with a big dream, our next goal is to purchase our neighbor's 2+ acre property behind us. Yes, we are still waiting... The current owner, our neighbor is a retired farmer now with some heart issues and we are interested in purchasing this rough little gem for years. It would help us to bring in more animals and take a small burden from the shoulders of our neighbors.
Our dream is to create maybe a new Animal Shelter or just simply expand Rosegate Furever Home.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
