Bella the 2 year old Beagle went for her rabies and DA2PP, check-up and so did Pasha the approx 1.5 year old Belgian Sheppard, was booked for her spay yesterday with rabies and DA2PP. Both are now ready for adoption! Pasha is getting better every week, she now trusts all the volunteers but may sometimes shy away from certain men. She is a great girl though and once she loves you, she will follow you everywhere, great on walks and will trot by your side!
So, we also took Jacopi’s cone head off, he finally can lick his you know what without doing damage again lol. He is now fully healed and ready for his loving home. The photographer is coming this weekend so you will see all the new cute faces on here soon!
Thank you to everyone who thought of us and brought donations over the weekend – we appreciate your kindness and our doggies send you big hugs and kisses!
We are in need of Dog Food, our doggies prefer Beneful or Pedigree Vitality + but we will accept any type of food. We are bringing Biggie and Minnalousche to the vet’s tonight for their neuter and spay tomorrow so wish them luck!
The address for the Navan Garage Sale is: Blue Exhibit Building, Navan Fair Grounds, 1295 Colonial Road. Join us on June 15th, from 9am to 2pm – volunteers will be there and ready to answer any of your questions.
Please bring your donations for this event or the on-line auction to 4388 Navan Road at any time, there is a donations drop box at the front of the property if we aren’t there, it is besides the gates. We are opened weekends from 1pm to 3pm so feel free to drop in and meet us!
We are preparing for the Navan Garage Sale on June 15th, will be there from 9am to 2pm, location to come but probably at the arena in Navan. Also would like to hold the next on-line auction on our website due to clients request (those that don’t have facebook). We are hoping to get that organized by the end of the month. If you wish to donate items for either the garage sale or on-line auction, it is now time to do so. Thank you to those who have donated items for our last two on-line auctions, they were great and sold very well, raising funds for our babies!
We have many plastic crates for sale, from the critter size – x-small up to medium/large, we will bring many at the garage sale and may put a few in the on-line auction… but if you need a crate, come see us on weekends between 1-3pm or call to see if someone is available during the week to meet you! We need to give them a good wash as they were in the garage all winter but they should be ready and non-dusty this weekend lol.
We dropped off Klaus, Jacopi and Ezmyra at the vet’s on Wednesday for their spay/neuter and shots on Thursday. All went well except with Jacopi. When I went to pick him up last night, his stitches were opened so they had to put him back to sleep and fix it. Even with a cone on, he managed to get to them – how silly is that!? He is home with us now, got a longer cone so he can’t hurt himself and it needs to stay on him for at least a week. Otherwise, everyone else at NARC is fine.
Got another bin so will be working on more cleaning this weekend and hopefully planting more bushes or flowers. If anyone has extra perenials, now is the time to bring them to us!!!
We worked very hard this weekend, all volunteers came and helped which was great – thank you all for your support and hard work! We filled the large bin full of tree branches – winter was tough and the pines had a good beating so we needed a bin to get rid of the large branches that fell down. The girls planted flowers here and there, others cleaned the gardens that already exist. We also started installing the car port which we will be using as a shady area for clients, it’s half installed – hoping to finish it this week! One of the volunteers parents was getting rid of a few bushes so they brought them and we replanted them all over the property. It will look good for clients in a few months when they flower! So, great weekend, never enough hours in a day – so much more to do!!! Thanks again everyone for your hard work and dedication, hopefully all your muscles aren’t as much in pain as mine are this morning lol.
Yesterday we picked up 3 dogs from a pound, a gorgeous Husky, a nice big Malamute and a very sweet Chow Chow mixed. We will get them all vetted, neutered/spayed soon and ready for adoption. They were all found as stray so no background information other than what we will learn from them at NARC.. We also took in a 5 year old Daschund the day before, he is very sweet and being a release, we have information on this doggy! He is affectionate, came from the same home since he was a puppy and loves to cuddle under the blankets with his family! As any daschund, he is shy at first but once he knows you he will show you how much he loves you. We rarely take releases but will make the odd exception depending on the circumstances… in this case, his family didn’t want to bring him to the Humane Society so understandably, we opened our home to him!
The garbage bin has arrived so we will be able to get rid of some items that are too bulky to place at the road this weekend! It will be another hard working weekend at NARC…
All went well with surgeries at the vet’s last night, Nieva was a bit tired and Blue groggy but otherwise, they were both content to come home. Had to lift Nieva to get her in the truck, I prefer they don’t try to jump up in the truck shortly after surgery! We took a little walk around the property when we got home, before she went back inside to her crate for a good night’s sleep! No play dates for her this week, she needs to heal properly for her new home on Sunday!
Last night, we also went and got the rest of the greenhouse so everything is at the farm now, soon ready to be put up! Can’t wait to see the end product. We now need to buy the heavy duty plastic or a nice long & strong tarp for it. Bit by bit, our projects are coming together! Thank you to everyone that helped on Sunday and last night, it was a tough job loading all the peices, dismantling peices that weren’t done and getting it all back home but we managed – thanks again everyone for your hard work with all the projects I keep throwing your way Ha! Ha!
Always a special THANK YOU to clients, friends, volunteers, family members, etc… for all your donations, money for the vet, food, javex, cleaning products, paper towels and so much more! Some clients come with treats and hand them to the doggies while they visit, some come to walk our pooches and give them more loving. What you do for NARC is amazing and… what goes around comes around, you will find that amazing things will happen in your life! The animals at the farm are sending you big hugs and kisses for everything that you do or have done for them!
We dropped off Blue for his neuter and Nieva for her spay and shots. Will pick them up after work tomorrow.
It was a good weekend again, picked up the greenhouse in hopes of getting it installed soon. Have to find a few parts so that the bottom posts go into and we can drill them in the cement, making it sturdy. This weekend coming up, we will put the dog houses back in place such as last year and have our pooches out all day on weekends with us to bask in the sun and play with visitors! It was such a nice weekend that the pooches spent it outside all day with us and were so happy!
We are looking for cement blocks, pressure treated wood (4×4′s, 8×8′s, 2×4′s 2×8′s, 2×6′s etc… any length). We are working on a few projects including building new dog houses, a new deck with stairs for the NARC mobile home, etc… Needing shingles for the top of our dog houses and other projects at NARC. Plywood, small to large peices, we are using pretty much anything anyone brings us… We can even use logs for posts, any length! What we don’t need for renovations will be cut up for the wood stove and keeping our doggies warm during winter months!
Inside, we always need Javex, Rubber Gloves, Paper Towels and we could use a few more face cloths. We don’t mind your opened bags of dog food or treats, leashes or collars – we use and abuse collars and leashes – that’s for sure!
If anyone has spare time and want to lend a hand with renovations – you are always more than welcomed to join our NARC family! We are getting the greenhouse soon and will need to install that and so much more. Any help we can get, always making NARC bigger and better is always a bonus! Thank you to those who are always there to support us in our endeavors, you are AMAZING, sending you hugs and kisses from everyone here at NARC – doggies included Hee! Hee!
