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
Our little Mickey (formerly Harley) is the newest K9 resident of Anchorage, Alaska. Karen adopted him during a visit here and says that he has doubled in size and is doing great. They just love him as he is such a fun dog and so entertaining when he plays with their other dog, 8-year-old Katie.
Sterling (renamed Cleo) - Mallory reports Cleo is doing really well. Cleo, only 10 weeks old, was introduced to 8-month old Caster and the two of them get along well together. Mallory found Circle L Ranch on Facebook.
Our March Volunteer of the Month is Cynthia Blankenship. She's calls herself an amateur photographer but her work looks professional to us! She has already taken some spectacular photos that you'll see on our revised website currently in the works. As a Circle L Volunteer, she gets to combine her two passions: rescuing dogs and photography.
This week Marlene Grady (volunteer) and I took Reba out to Goldwater Lake in Prescott. She loved getting in the water, didn't swim just lay in it and started biting at the waves she was making. Reba has an eye disease which limits her vision but she could smell and hear everything around her.
In spite of some inclement weather, the Circle L Ranch Animal Rescue Wine Tasting Fundraiser on March 1st was a huge success. Many thanks to the volunteers and staff who worked the event, the wonderful individuals and companies who donated raffle and silent auction prizes, and the friends and neighbors who participated.
Mark Feldstein has completed his latest book, "Last Stop Before the Rainbow Bridge," which features two dogs that had been rescued by Circle L Ranch. Mark emailed Liz Stegmeir, our Canine Manager, about a year or so ago, along with other rescue groups, to say he was putting this book together and ask for any stories we would like to have included.
Here's an update on Roscoe, one of the fortunate dogs whose stay at the Ranch was very short. He was one of three dogs given up by a family because they had a baby and wanted to "downsize." Now it looks like Roscoe has found his forever home as he went to a great family in the Valley with a four-year-old son who loves dogs.
