Anthony and his fellow Boy Scouts are our “Favorite Volunteers of the Day”! Not only did they build two new benches for our pool area, but they also planted trees and installed a new dog door. We love and appreciate projects that benefit our dogs and the longevity and beautification of our facility. Would you like to volunteer at New Leash On Life or start a project with your Boy or Girl Scout troop? Please contact us and we can see if we would be a good fit – email@example.com.
Who doesn't have errands to run on the weekends? The good news is you can cross off your to-do list and meet our adoptable dogs at the same time. In addition, ask our staff about boarding and training opportunities and sign up to volunteer with us. It is a win-win situation! Visit http://nlol.org/adoption-events for the locations, days, and times of our mobile pet adoptions. See you there!
Remember back in December when we announced our office renovation (http://nlol.org/blog/donation-items-needed-office-renovation-project)? It is still moving along, especially with the help of our wonderful volunteers. Here is volunteer Ally painting away. Thank you, Ally!
Proudly announcing a new, stylish way to support New Leash On Life! We are taking part in an amazing t-shirt fundraiser, via Bonfire Funds!
Simply purchase our awesome shirt design in the style of your choice, and a large portion of the sale proceeds go towards our A/C unit fundraiser, Project Cool Our Heels. We are 1/3 of the way to our goal, and the toasty sun of Spring and Summer is fast approaching! NOTE: We need to sell a minimum of 15 shirts to see any donations come back to us!
If you have not checked out our available dog page in a while, then now is the time! Along with our other adoptables, Bandito, Rosey, Shadow (shown) and Misty are now ready to find their forever home. Click on their photos to find out more information and if they would be a good fit for your home. If so, fill out an adoption application today!
February is doggy dental month! Though we humans tend to brush at least twice a day, our canine friends are often overlooked in the dental department. Cleaning your dog’s teeth is just as important for their health as it is for ours! Dogs are susceptible to illnesses such as kidney disease if a gum infection goes unnoticed. There are several signs to look for to know if your dog might be suffering from dental disease including:
· Yellow, plaque buildup along the gum line
· Bad breath
We cannot believe Annabel has not found her forever home. If you love comeback stories, then please check out what amazing odds Annabel has overcome since her arrival at New Leash On Life: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6B9tXsQXHLA. She would be an adorable and well-behaved addition to any family, including one with kids! Fill out an adoption application (here) for her TODAY; she would love to meet you.
We had a very successful time participating in PetSmart's National Adoption Weekend event!
We went to three of our regular PetSmart locations over the course of the weekend... we gave away tons of boarding and volunteering flyers, raised about $75 in donations for the A/C unit fundraiser, and two of our rescue dogs found loving furever homes!
Adoptable Barkley (above) likes to think he owns the Dog Park, but that is not true (do not tell him we said that). Come to New Leash On Life and let your dog be the King or Queen of our rentable Dog Park or Pool Area. 30 or 60 minute time slots are available!
Please note that our Mobile Pet Adoption Calendar is finally up-to-date on the website! All dates are final unless otherwise noted! If you're a volunteer and would like to participate in an MPA, be sure to add yourself via Volgistics or on the Facebook event!
