The celebration of Carol’s life will be held at the home of Don Wanschura and his wife from 3- 6 p.m., on Sunday, October 8. The address is 7505 Dupont Avenue South, Richfield, Minn. According to Don, the informal, catered gathering will be an opportunity to meet Carol’s family and share memories of Carol. Well-behaved dogs on leashes are welcome. The family has requested that any memorials be directed to the Minnesota Wisconsin Collie Rescue, Howling for Wolves, or another animal charity.
Over the years, Carol, who adopted collies from MWCR, has been a tremendous resource to our organization and has helped many dogs and their families who had questions about dog behavior. Carol worked with my collie-mix, Jake, after he had an encounter with Minneapolis Animal Control and helped save his good name. Carol was always willing to provide an assessment for any MWCR collie and work on a behavioral plan to help the dog and the family. Carol was a strong supporter of MWCR and rarely missed one of our events. Carol is greatly missed. – Terry Libro, MWCR President
