"I first spotted Marianne Clare while I was out feeding and checking on the street dogs. I had never seen her before and she proved to be a challenge to rescue. Originally, she was coming near me for food but not right up to me, so the next move was to set the trap. But this girl wanted nothing to do with the trap no matter what I put in it.

I knew where she was sleeping, so I started feeding her in the abandoned garage and put one of my field cameras there to keep an eye on her and get a better feel for her daily routine. I got plenty of images of her on camera. But what I noticed was that it looked like she had found a doll that she would carry around and play with. After seeing her on camera with it multiple times, I knew when I rescued her I would have to find that toy.

I fed her for a couple days to get her familiar with me then I decided to try the trap again. Still no luck. She still wanted nothing to do with going in that trap. So, based on her routine, I went back when I thought she would be in the garage, and it finally worked! I was able to get her leashed, and she walked right out to the jeep with me. I also found her "friend" and brought that with us. The doll was kind of creepy, and Marianne who works at Stray Rescue happens to love creepy dolls. So that is who Marianne Clare is named after!" - Donna Lochmann
