Circle L Ranch Animal Rescue & Sanctuary in Prescott Valley, Arizona, is one of the largest shelters in the U.S. Overflowing with animals, we're home to dogs, horses, goats, geese, sheep, chickens and a rooster. Many of these animals were rescued from County facilities or the Humane Society—literally a day away from euthanasia. Many will find new homes but those not suitable for adoption will live out their lives at this sanctuary. Read more
On August 4th the Circle L Ranch became the new home for 2 little Munchkins named Rusty and Dusty. If any animal can capture your heart in an instant it is these guys. They are 8 month old twin Dwarf Nubian goats. Their arrival at the ranch was brought about because they are VERY vocal. The people that bought them lived on an acre of property in close proximity to their neighbors.
Our Volunteer of the Month for August is Ezra Lavinsky who has been helping out at the ranch by walking our wonderful dogs, a benefit for all involved. Ezra has become especially fond of some of our senior dogs and is making sure their golden years have lots of love and attention. He's pictured here with Hope, one of our elder German Shepherds. Ezra shares how he became a volunteer for Circle L:
On Thursday, July 2nd, Connie Martin (left), Circle L Fundraising Chair, met with Greta Jennewein (right), talented quilt maker, to draw the winning raffle ticket. Greta drew Martha Kedroski's ticket from the bowl and Martha was notified shortly thereafter. Congratulations to Martha and thanks to everyone who participated in the raffle to help raise money for the "Paws in Progress" training program.
Stempy (renamed Axel) — Paula feels like she got the perfect dog. They bonded immediately and her veterinarian referred to him as an "old soul" as he is so calm and laid back. Paula said he has been wonderful with house training and goes to the door to go out when necessary.
We'd like to say thank you again to N.O.A.H., a local 501(c)(3) established in 1999, and Terry Hendrick who helps manage the store and the volunteers. This local thrift store has set their goals high for 2015 and hope to surpass their donations to the local area rescue groups of last year which was over $93,000.
