Arlo’s Sanctuary OPEN

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 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.

Nicholas and His Christmas Miracle!

My name is Nicholas, and I received my very own Christmas miracle tonight! I was whisked away from Carson, by Second Chance Cocker Rescue. How amazing is that? I am so excited and happy. I am a handsome boy, at about 7 years of age. I am a beautiful buff and white boy. I have a sweet personality, and I love everyone I meet. I will be going to the vet this next week for a full physical. I had a HUGE lump on my leg, SCCR says they will biopsy it and I will need shots, and to be neutered. I just want to thank those wonderful volunteers that left their home and family to rescue me today! I am hoping to find a foster home asap, and a permanent home by the New Year? If you think that I am your perfect pup just fill out an application now, and I will ask Santa to put you at the top of his Nice List!

Merry Christmas,
Saint Nicholas

If you can help with our sweet Saint Nicholas medical costs he will be very very grateful.

Happy Birthday, Elizabeth!

Happy Birthday, Elizabeth!

Happy Birthday to the Queen of Cockers! You have not only changed the lives of every dog (and cat and rabbit and horse and pig and goat and chicken and burro) that you’ve saved, but you’ve changed the lives of so many people you’ve touched with your dedication to making the world a better place. This beautiful email from one of our SCCR friends says it best!

“Elizabeth has been a dream come true for both hundreds (probably thousands) of cocker spaniels (and the wannabees) and dozens (probably hundreds) of people that she has inspired.
We are truly amazed [with] what she has done with the organization and the Jamestown sanctuary. She is a little too modest to take much credit and I recommend the board consider how the organization can recognize this almost life long devotion. She deserves some permanent recognition whether she wants it or not.

I know a very generous donation was made to help build most of the sanctuary and its naming was a nice thank you. Without Elizabeth’s charm, brains and determination, the project would be as we say “still a hole in the ground.”

Thank everyone that has contributed their valuable time and money.
Jerry and Cybel”

We all love you EB! We respect your vision, and your passion for saving animals everywhere! Thank you for all that you do!!!

Please consider making a birthday donation to help honor Elizabeth and all the work she’s done to save cocker spaniels in need. No donation is too small and all are greatly appreciated!

Sammy Got Hit By a Car

One year old Sammy is going into surgery for his broken leg last week. When his family found out the cost they called us for help and relinquished him. The poor boy has a really bad break. We need good thoughts for him to be able to keep his leg. There are two breaks and a floating section. Since it happened over 48hrs before we go him his chance of a successful surgery of placing a plate on to hold all 3 pieces in place weren’t good but Dr. Jackson made it work. Now we put him on bed rest to make sure it heals well. There is still a chance we might have to amputate. Once his leg is healed then he goes back for cherry eye surgery and a neuter. Poor boy. That is a lot of bed rest for a youngster.

We need your help to pay for his surgery. Your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps. Thank you for your support.

Ann summers, will be greatly missed

Many of you  knew Ann Summers from the Cocker Spaniel Rescue group, Cocker Connection. She was known as one of the most compassionate and dedicated Cocker rescuers in California. We were proud to have her on our Advisory board and such good friend for so many years. Ann’s whole world revolved around her beloved husband, Mike, and her rescue work.

We are sad to say we lost Ann this last Sunday and we will miss sharing pictures of our latest rescues with her and hearing her rescue stories. Every dog she rescued and every family she placed those dogs with have been changed and touched by Ann. They, like us, will never be the same. In honor of her memory and rescue work we have placed a beautiful plaque at the Sanctuary on one of our benches so you can remember her when you visit and were we will think about her every day.

A donation in honor of Ann and the work she dedicated her life too.
