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
We don't value seniors enough. How many dogs have you known or owned who lived to be 15 or 16 years old with no serious health problems? And how much love did they give during those long lives? Consider a senior dog if you want to add a new four-legged friend to your family.
Look at that happy face! Shelby is a senior female Boxer mix who has spent most of her life at the ranch. She still loves to play—in keeping with the Boxer personality.
In the few years I’ve been doing rescue I have yet to understand how people can just throw their pets away. It’s always heartbreaking to hear the stories and see the faces, but none so heartbreaking as when it’s a senior pet like B.G.
About two years ago we went to pull some dogs from the Chino Valley Animal Shelter. Two of the dogs we took were Brittany (left), a Collie/Catahoula mix, and Buster Bud, an overweight Border Collie mix. Both dogs were about 7 or 8 years old, and they seemed like they were best buddies.
Attention, ladies and gentlemen: Buster Brown is back in town! A distinguished 9-year-old with tons of spunk, gorgeous endearing eyes and a tail that wags faster than a speeding bullet! This little man has it all—good looks, intelligence and a loyal personality.
Ripley - According to Alexandria, Ripley is doing wonderful and apparently having the time of his life living with three young women who adore him. Alexandria said Ripley fit right in from the beginning, starting with his car ride to his new home.
Caren Greenberg is our Volunteer of the Month for November. She has been a social worker for most of her adult life, and she feels her volunteer work at Circle L Ranch is much the same, except with dogs instead of people.
I wanted to send a picture of Wrangler who's growing up. I talked to your wonderful volunteer that checks up on the dogs after they are adopted so you know the story but I still wanted you to see how beautiful he is becoming!
