Dr. Lindner takes a moment during medication time to take a photo with Rainier at LARC.
Rainer and many of the other wolf-dogs need to have “No-Thrush” for canines put on their ears. Rather than harsh chemicals like pyrethrum we at LARC use natural medication whenever possible. The No-Thrush treats the ear bites and helps the healing process.
Please help us buy No Thrush to help the woofers :)))
Tara (above: left) and Tie Dye (right) approach for apples. Tara, a rescued Premarin mare and the mother of Tie Dye has had a reoccurring infection on her underside since arriving at LARC. She has undergone one medical procedure to remedy it but the infection returned. LARC transported her to Alamo Pintado Equine Hospital to see a specialist in Santa Barbara, CA. They noticed what looked like small foreign bodies on the ultrasound in the stomach wall. Tara is going to undergo a longer procedure to remove the foreign bodies and resolve this infection.
Many unrecorded and unplanned surgical procedures are performed on Premarin mares so we are unsure what is under her skin but we will remove it, treat with antibiotics, and get her back to Tie Dye as soon as possible.
Please help by donating towards her surgery.
Outreach in Bakersfield
Wiley, Perez, and Saxon (above) at an Outreach at Tractor Supply in Bakersfield (one of our great vendors). Wiley rarely goes anywhere without his German shepherd counterpart, Saxon, nor without his human counterpart, Matthew (his soul mate).
Veteran Fence Building
LARC is getting close to completing our perimeter fence with the help of some returning combat Vteterans and those of our supporters who paid for a section of the fenceline (thank you thank you!!). Matthew and Forest (both combat vets, on the left) are watching Eric and Mike (OEF / OIF veterans) set and level one of the perimeter fence poles. LARC only has 650ft of fence line to go (out of 7,000) in order to complete the perimeter.
Help complete our fence...we are so close now!!
FoxyRoxy, a red fox, strikes a pose for Joanne McArthur on her visit to LARC. FoxyRoxy enjoys the freedom to move about her large enclosure, a great diet, and a large water trough to bathe in on the hot days. LARC condemns fur “farming” and no more important message can be said than that of “The Ghosts in the Machine” which details the torment these foxes must endure so unnecessarily. As we all know wearing fur should be left to those with four legs.
NEWARC | NEW ENGLAND WOLF ADVOCACY & RESCUE CENTER
NEWARC advocates for the wild wolf and offers sanctuary to the wolves and wolfdogs relinquished to our care.
This year has been an amazing one and we are already getting ready for winter.
Our staff has grown and we need a new volunteer cabin for the winter staff. We are looking for an individual or company to support this fall project.
The shed to the left is available for delivery from Shed USA through Home Depot.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your ideas, financial support, or fund raising ideas to get this shed before the winter kicks in at NEWARC.
Ateme in the Shade
Ateme (aka Optimus, above) yawns in the shade at NEWARC. Ateme was brought to sanctuary by Meghan and her husband from Tennessee. Ateme and Akilla cannot wait to move to their new enclosure and with your support we can make this possible. NEWARC has purchased the material and just needs a few strong men and women to donate a weekend to the cause. If you are interested please fill out the contact form below and in the notes section write Ateme and Akilla. This will be a weekend full of sweat and hard work but the reward of giving Ateme a new enclosure will be great. Let us know if you are up for the task.
Cochise and Matthew (above) take a moment at NEWARC. Cochise, a definite favorite, both by the staff and supporters lays down in his new enclosure at NEWARC.
Support by donors like you made this new enclosure possible in 2014. Now with winter approaching we need to put a roof on the security area to keep the snow out and enable our staff to move more efficiently through the outdoor habitats.
Click below to donate towards this roofing project.
Nikki (above) is doing well in her new enclosure at NEWARC. She is a cautious girl but enjoys a good scratch on her hind end. Tanner and the staff have been busy knocking down the growth in her enclosure. Believe it or not, with the rains in New Hampshire this year, those weeds grow up within a few weeks!
Max peeking through the bushes at NEWARC got a special visit from his supporter last month. Max enjoyed all the attention and hubbub surrounding his day in the “sun.” Max also got a haircut last month and looks great with his new summer cut. Max is one of NEWARC’s older statesmen and needs a little extra attention to his nutritional needs.
At Serenity Park Sanctuary (the Asscoation for Parrot C.A.R.E. www.parrotcare.org) offers lifetime care to parrots on the grounds of the West Los Angeles VA. Here Veterans get a chance to heal outside the “brick and mortar” of the VA hospital setting. The Veterans gain employment, get flex-scheduling (to attend Dr appointments), and are assisted through this process by our peer-to-peer support program. Often times the parrots are the Veterans first exposure to “wild” animals and the skills they learn while on the job help them as they transition into a new field of employment. Once an Infantryman now an experienced animal caregiver with applicable skills for a Veterinary hospital, boarding facility or humane society.
Bobbi, poses for a photo, known as the cutest ugliest bird in the world! Bobbi is a plucker, most sentient beings kept in a small area for prolonged periods of time demonstrate psychological issues and Bobbi is no exception. Bobbi was kept in a small cage for many years and often covered with a blanket to keep her quiet. Bobbi started to pluck out of emotional pain, the plucking then became a habit, and now the damage is done. Bobbi has plucked so completely that she has damaged the follicles of her feathers.
