The G2 Gallery – known for supporting animal and environmental groups – is having an Opening Reception of the work of photographer extraordinaire Jennifer Maharry whose work is focused on the Canids of LARC.

The opening reception is: Saturday, November 8, 2014, from 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm and LARC will not be able to attend due to an overlap in our schedule. The image above is Samson who was rescued by LARC in 2011 from a roadside attraction in Alaska. It took two years to earn his trust and he now accepts affection from Dr. Lindner and select staff at LARC. Photos of Samson and the other animals of LARC will be on display.

It is with a very heavy heart that we inform all of our supporters that Chompers (aka Compass) died after surgery on October 24th. Chompers was taken to the Vet after our staff noticed he was not moving around the enclosure normally. His bloodwork was abnormal, his breathing was shallow, and he had a cut on his front leg and shoulder. Chompers received six stitches for a “non life-threatening wound” according to our vet, but never awoke from his procedure.

Both of our veterinarians are carefully reviewing and re-testing his bloodwork to try to find an answer to his untimely passing. A special “howl” is being sent out to Matthew McDonald, a one-time volunteer and a close companion of Chompers who feels this loss as much as anyone.

We are so grateful to Mike from Wolfdog Rescue Resources and PamelaJo from Lake Tahoe Wolf Rescue for bringing this wonderful being into our lives by alerting us to his plight. We rushed down to the Rancho Cucamonga Animal Shelter on a cold October night in 2009 and whisked him away from the shelter – he was an owner relinquishment at only five months old.

Chompers lived at LARC for exactly five years and was the favorite of our staff and of Lorin and Matthew’s who have been “loving up” his packmates who miss him more than we will know.

I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep. I could see that you were crying, You found it hard to sleep. I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear, "It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here."

I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea, You were thinking of the many times, your hands reached down to me. I was with you at the shops today, Your arms were getting sore. I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more.

I was with you at my grave today, You tend it with such care. I want to re-assure you, that I'm not lying there. I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key. I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said " it's me."

You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair. I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there. It's possible for me, to be so near you everyday. To say to you with certainty, "I never went away." You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew... In the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.

The day is over... I smile and watch you yawning and say "good-night, I'll see you in the morning." And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide, I'll rush across to greet you and we'll stand, side by side. I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see.

Be patient, live your journey out...then come home to be with me.

New Rescue – Please Help LARC Name Her

So do you believe that things happen for a reason? As we put our beloved Chompers to rest, LARC was contacted by Officer Mitchell Levy of San Diego Animal Services regarding the placement of a recently confiscated wolf/wolfdog. Take a look and tell us if she does not resemble dear Chompers. LARC has not named her yet and we are hoping one of our supporters can come up with the right name for her.

According to Officer Levy, this beautiful but frightened girl spent five years in a tiny 5x10 run behind a house and she is just learning to trust again. She also weighed 47 pounds when LARC picked her up and took her to be spayed. Our vet estimated she is about 40 pounds underweight. Please consider sponsoring this young female – she will need extra feedings, extra supplements and extra tender, loving care!

Those offering to sponsor her will get first “dibs” at naming her and also a special photograph of her as soon as she puts on some weight!

We have a day for giving thanks. Now, we have Giving Tuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more.

Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity. You can help LARC, NEWARC, SERENITY PARK by PayPal, credit card, electronic check or funds transfer, or by check through the mail. And a Huge Thank You to everyone.


And to all the Veterans’ at LARC, NEWARC, SERENITY PARK, and around the world we want to say “Thank You” for your service. At all three sanctuaries we support our troops by offering a place of healing where we also employ our returning heroes. Now more than ever they need your support. Many Veterans have applied for employment and with your support we can get them started at one of our sanctuaries. As a supporter you can make a one-time or monthly donation towards a Veterans salary, our Veteran Food Bank, or Supplemental Veteran Assistance (like tools for a new job or books for an upcoming class).



In New Hampshire and Maine (NEWARC exists in both states) more stringent laws regarding wolf and wolfdog Immunization, Vaccination, and Registration have been approved by the States’ respective legislature which we as an organization support. Due to the change in registration NEWARC had to re-vaccinate all animals this year and again will need to vaccinate all animals next year. No longer are three year vaccines valid in these states so all rescued animals need yearly vaccines. Thanks to our supporters we have managed to undertake this new financial strain. We are asking for donations this holiday season to support next year’s vaccinations.

Max met a new supporter during the LARC visit to NEWARC in October. Joan not only decided to sponsor Max for a year but she also brought dinner to the NEWARC staff two weeks later. Both Max and NEWARC are lucky to have such an amazing supporter. Joan will also help with get supporters to purchase our 2015 calendars on the East Coast. Thanks again to all our supporters and click below if you would like to preorder a 2015 Calendar.

Phoenix raises her pretty coyote nose and watches the staff as they prepare lunch for all the animals at NEWARC. Phoenix has been moved to a large new enclosure at NEWARC. She lives with Tonka (a Native American Indian Dog- NAID) and spends most of the day playing with her partner. She is affectionate towards some of the staff but is very selective on who gets to rub her back.



Phoenix and many of the animals at NEWARC would love new straw bedding and rubber water buckets for the winter. Please click below to donate to the winterizing project.



Ruby, with her blueberry stained beak, one of the very first parrots at Serenity Park is still going strong.

Of course with the help of so many loving volunteers like Lily and Richard and our veteran staff, like Bob – all of whom cook and clean for the parrots amongst many other things.

Richard is one wonderful problem-solver… the golf cart needs new brakes –call Richard. The parrots need a misting system –call Richard. The roof needs to be repaired -call Richard.


Basically Richard is always there helping Lily and the staff of Veterans and assisting in any project to make the lives of the parrots more complete. From all of the Parrots and all of the Staff we want to say thank you to Richard and his flockmate Lily.

Casey was rescued from a hoarding situation and is in a loving foster home until her blood work is done.

Most birds come to Serenity Park in need of veterinary care and Casey is no exception.

She is almost all plucked-a common tragedy in caged birds.

Please order your “Parrots of Serenity Park 2015” today! They will be at your door in time for the holidays or just let us know who to send them to and we will be glad to send them with a gift card.
