Heartbroken Over Saxon

Many of our readers met Saxon, our beautiful German Shepherd Dog, who went everywhere with Matthew and Lorin. He was the first of three German shepherds adopted through Westside German Shepherd Rescue in Los Angeles. Saxon was the Alpha male of the pack – even over many of the wolfdogs - and many people were surprised to see how Wiley the wolfdog kowtowed to him. Wiley is heartbroken along with the rest of us so we have been allowing him to spend more time with Tigger our long haired shepherd. One of our supporters said it best, if he had the choice this would have been the life he chose – he was C.O.O. of the ranch! Saxon died after surgery for a cancerous adrenal gland tumor at the age of 8 1/2. He will be missed until the end of time.


Helping LARC, NEWARC and Serenity Park Before Years’ End!

Largely because of dealing with Saxon’s illness, LARC could not do much for Black Friday or Cyber Monday but we know our supporters like to help their favorite nonprofit charities with end-of-the year giving…and we have something to give back! But a reminder that 100% of your donation goes directly to help the animals and the veterans – there are no administrative fees and we know that you like our lean and clean sanctuary machine. Many of our supporters also like knowing that disabled veterans are employed by our programs.

So here is the first way we are giving back: We are very grateful to Jennifer Maharry who donated six of her stunning photographs of LARC Residents, custom framed fresh from her show in Venice. What she captures in these nearly life size personal portraits is truly astounding.

Offer #1: For a $750.00 donation per 18” X 24”custom matted and framed photo we will ship this artwork to you before the Christmas Holiday. Please select each one by name (shown here without their frames). Please contact us if you would like to see the framed version: info@lockwoodarc.org.


Rather spend a little less? Order a calendar featuring the photographic artwork of Jennifer Maharry and JoAnne MacArthur from the renowned film, “Ghosts in the Machine.” All of these photos and more are included in the special order calendar – “Close Ups at LARC.”



Offer #2: Want to help the sanctuaries in an easy way and remember the animals each and every day? Order a Calendar entitled either “The Wild Lives at LARC” or “The Wild Lives at NEWARC” or “The Parrots of Serenity Park.” Don’t forget there is also the “Close Ups” calendar for LARC. By getting your order now we will mail the 2015 calendar right before the New Year begins – and please give them as gifts for friends and family as they are true works of art taken by talented photographers.

Offer #3: LARC has been the recipient of much kindness of late. Mr. Bob Barker and Ms. Nancy Burnet made a donation of one of Mr. Barker’s authentic Emmy Awards which states:


Outstanding Game Show Host

One of Mr. Barker’s other donated Emmy Awards sold for $10,000 at a recent charity event for the PAWS Sanctuary.

Mr. Barker and Ms. Burnet also provided LARC with original oil paintings made by chimpanzees and plenty of The Price is Right paraphernalia. We plan to auction this off on Charity Buzz or Ebay but before we do please make your offer!

Come on down! Contact us for more details: info@lockwoodarc.org

 

 

Offer #4: An anonymous art collector has donated one of her Matisse prints to Serenity Park and before we go to Charity Buzz to auction it off we would like to first offer it to any of our art loving supporters.

Starting bid of $5,000.

Think of how much food this will buy for the animals! Contact us with your bid! info@lockwoodarc.org

NEWARC | NEW ENGLAND WOLF ADVOCACY & RESCUE CENTER

Winter is not taking a break and it hasn’t even officially started yet! But the wolves and wolfdogs at NEWARC love it as their fur has grown out and they stay remarkable warm in their hay-filled “doggie houses.”

This beautiful resident of NEWARC, Ateme, is one of the featured animals in the NEWARC calendar.

Cochise is featured on the NEWARC calendar as well. Please click below if you would like to order a 2015 Calendar which we promise to get to you before the beginning of the new year.

Justin came from California to care for the wolves and wolfdogs at NEWARC and is here making friends with an animal he calls, “Optimus.”

Great News for Wild Wolves!

A recent article in New Hampshire suggests that a wolf may have crossed the border from Canada into the state of New Hampshire – making it the first wolf in 120 years to be in the state. Just like the wolf dubbed “Journey” who traveled over a thousand miles back and forth from Oregon to California and back several times!

This lone wolf made the state of California decide to re-instate protections for the gray wolf – and we are thrilled to know that wild wolves are protected. In fact, the states of Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin have also recently decided to provide protection for wild wolves in those states – no more hunting or trapping of these crucially important top predators – maybe the myths like Little Red Riding Hood are finally being overcome by sound science and heartfelt concern for fellow sentient beings.

 

 

So you think Alex likes being petted? We think so! Wolfdogs do not make good pets despite loving their belly rubs. People mistakenly think they would fit in with the rest of their human and furry family but for the most part this is not the case. People are relinquishing their wolfdogs at younger and younger ages and once they end up at the shelter they are euthanized – unless a sanctuary can take them – that’s where NEWARC and LARC has played an important role in saving lives.

However, the problem exists in breeding and selling these animals in the first place and we would like to see wolfdogs become illegal in all states. LARC is looking for a legislator who would be willing to co-write a bill with LARC for this purpose. Any ideas? Please let us know: info@lockwoodarc.org

 

SERENITY PARK PARROT SANCTUARY

There aren’t too many cuter birds than little Cashew who, seen here, is making the most of her foraging tray.

The parrots at Serenity Park are allowed to eat the occasional nut and sunflower seed because they are outdoors and able to fly – two critical components of parrot health and happiness.

 

 

 

Julius is a much loved cockatoo at Serenity Park ParrotSanctuary and is one of the few rare birds, like those of one of our most favorite volunteers Liz, whose parrot parent comes for frequent visits.

Julius loves everyone – especially "Mum."

Who could resist this gorgeous, sweet boy?

 

 

Help Save a Veteran's Feathered Friend!

A new service being offered by Serenity Park is the taking in of pet parrots from veterans who need to be placed in hospice care.

After Serenity Park was featured on the CBS News in mid-December there have been hundreds of requests – of course we cannot help all but we are establishing a fund to care forVeterans’ Feathered Friends.

Any help would be so appreciated by so many – especially the veteran who can no longer care for his beloved pet and knows she will have a great life for the rest of her life.

Also, please order your “Parrots of Serenity Park 2015” today!

They will be at your door in time for the new year – and remember: all proceeds benefit the parrots and the veterans who care for them.
