We first saw Simba in the shelter listings a couple of weeks ago and watched him while waiting for his wait hold to be over. His owner finally came and claimed him, then he was picked up by Animal Control two days later and taken back to the shelter. We saw him again and again; we watched and were waiting for him to become available so we could get him. Fortunately, his owner relinquished him this time and we swooped in and grabbed him.
Upon seeing him in person we were horrified at his condition. Matted fur everywhere and some of the worst ear infections we have ever seen. Black matted fur and his ears are bleeding from him scratching them so much. The smell is overwhelming, not to mention all the foxtails that were pulled out during his groom. The matting was extensive and bad. He must have been living outside because the smell was so significant you could never have had him in the house. We pulled out a couple dozen foxtails that were embedded into his skin.He is all groomed now and we know he is feeling much, much better.

Meet Simon! We were surprised to find out he has a raging case of scarcoptic mange and is one sad boy. He is off to the vet for some good meds and a recovery that usually takes six weeks. He will feel better very soon. Can you help with his vet bills? Your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps. Thank you for your support.
The past two weeks, we’ve have had more cockers coming in than in the past two months. They are all great dogs and many are seniors. Wyatt lost his dad and needed somewhere to go ASAP. We couldn’t turn down that sweet face. He is 10 years old and except for a touch of arthritis, heathy as a horse.
|We still have some other wonderful seniors waiting for homes too. All 10 years old. Sunshine, our pretty one eyed girl is pretty zippy!! Then there is love muffin Molly, who’s more into power naps between meals. Everyone’s favorite, Duke is our special greeter for all the new dogs. He welcomes them and tries to make them feel at home. Not to be forgotten is Tucker. He’s longing for a real home with lots of love and attention. We also pulled Puddles, Sophie, Hannah and Riley from shelters and took in four cockers needing rehoming. Lordy, that is a lot of dogs! We can’t thank you enough for your support that allows us to take in all these seniors and all our rescues in need!! |

Arlo’s Sanctuary in Jamestown is OPEN for Business!! It took two years to find the right property and location. Another two years to get through the county permits and licenses and now we are open for business thanks to our three big donors and all of you. There are not words to tell how much we appreciate your support for this amazing project.
We have come so far, installing solar power, 7 dog kennels to house 30 Cocker Spaniels, built a laundry room, a barn for storage, an office, fencing for all the dog runs, horse and burro pastures, hay barn, well shed and a commercial parking lot. We can’t wait for you to see it. We decided to offer private tours instead of having a big open house this year. So please contact Elizabeth at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a private tour. And check out our facebook album of pictures that tell the story of building the Sanctuary
We are going to start signing up Volunteers in the area to come feed dogs, feed the livestock, scoop poop, do maintenance, dog training, cuddle, pet and play with the dogs. Help out with events. We will schedule a volunteer orientation this month.
We have so many more great plans for the Sanctuary. We want to plant grass in the dog runs and center area. We have finished the inside of three kennels, starting work on the next two and need to schedule the last two. Each kennel has a tile floor, AC and a heater, wainscotting, paint and trim to make it look like a small living room. There is a seasonal pond that we need to work on so we can swim in it. We need to add a bathroom for guests. We want to design and build a memory garden for you to enjoy on your visit. There are still acres and acres we can cut dog walking areas and add picnic areas for you. If you would like to support our work and growth all donations made here will go directly to adding new projects to the Sanctuary and making it an even better place. And it is AMAZING!!
We also have a fundraising project to help us raise money needed to add to our wish list to make this the best place possible. Arlo’s Sanctuary Building Sponsership Fundraiser. We will name a dog kennel or one of the other buildings or areas after you or your dog for a $2,500-10,000 donation. Each of these signs will be hung on the building the donor chose. This sponsorship was purchased in memory of Ann Summers. This sign will remind us of Ann and her amazing work every day we see it.
We have a second fundraising project to help raise funds to keep expanding the Sanctuary. We will purchase a stone plaque. and showcase it in a hand built wooden bench. Only $1000 each and a great way to memorialize or honor your babies or loved ones. There is a bench on each set of kennels and we will put them in our future memory garden.
Then we have our wish list if you would like to send a house warming present the dogs would be soooo appreciative.
