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
This month we want to highlight two men who are volunteering their time and expertise to benefit the Circle L dogs. Bill Nicholas (shown on the left) and Alec Belli (right) are currently enclosing a back porch area on one of the Ranch houses.
Buddy - Nine-year-old Buddy has settled down and is making himself at home after a couple of days of uncertainty. In fact, according to Bob, Buddy didn't even bark for the first five days. Bob and his wife, Dee, had lost a dog in January they had adopted from Circle L and felt they needed another dog to fill that void.
Blizzard - Janet exclaimed that Blizzard is "doing wonderfully!" There was a wellness vet visit last week, and Blizzard is now on preventative Heart Guard. It took a couple of days for Blizzard to open up, but she is a very social dog with both people and other dogs.
A terribly skinny, but very friendly dog was found wandering on the streets of Phoenix. Animal Control received him and scanned for a microchip—and yes, this was a dog that had been adopted from Feathers Foundation about 5 years ago.
Hunter - Caroline first met Hunter at pet adoption day and then the family went to Circle L to meet him. After the house check, Hunter came to live with them. It took about 2 to 3 days for him to adjust to their other dog, Shadow.
Chloe - "She's doing great," were the first words from Bob. His wife had seen Chloe at pet adoption day and they went to Circle L Ranch so he could also meet her. Bob said they are about to introduce Chloe to two old pet chickens they inherited when they bought the property which are kept in a coop.
Darby (now Marley) - According to Dusty, Marley is doing great! Dusty said he had been looking for a Jack Russell Terrier and he received a phone call from Liz Stegmeir (Manager, Circle L Canine Division) informing him they had a Jack Russell Terrier mix. That's how Marley got her new home.
The ranch is currently in need of volunteers to help with our adoption days. These events are held every Saturday at Petco in Prescott and Pet Headquarters in Prescott Valley.
