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 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.
To know that Deb Diferdinando had four pets in her home would tell you she's an animal lover, but she had to go even further by adding two more dogs to her family. Now she's helping at the Ranch and giving special attention to our adoptable and sanctuary dogs which makes her our Volunteer of the Month for June.
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.
April (renamed Abby) — April, according to Diana, is doing well. She feels Abby has recovered from giving birth to her puppies and now has her energy back to normal. Diana did have two dogs, but one passed away so she was looking for a companion for her senior dog, Bandit, a border collie.
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.
My name is Hope. I wasn’t born with this name but it was given to me by a true angel who saved me. I had lived in a home where things weren’t always so great. I was fed but not ever treated with medical care or groomed to be the pretty girl that I am.
Brandy is the fifth dog to join our Paws In Progress (PIP) training program under the guidance of dog behaviorist Angelo Lombardi. We plan to have a maximum of five dogs in training at any given time and will add new dogs as our four-legged students are adopted into their forever homes. Learn more about our PIP Program.
May 7th was a blustery day with 30-mph winds and cool temperatures. It also happened to be the day the sheep shearing was scheduled. Jason Siffring of High Plains Shearing (602-515-3724) and Jerry Ladd of Tri-Ply Fibers (425-445-2076) arrived early in the morning and set up their equipment.
Circle L would like to thank Kroger/Fry's grocery stores for the wonderful opportunity they offer local "community partners." Fry's V.I.P customers can go online and choose a charitable organization like Circle L to receive a donation from Fry's based on what the customer spends at the store. And it doesn't cost the customer one penny!
