Vet’s this week

Last night I went to the vet’s with the 4 beagle puppies, yup, 4 gorgeous beagle pups, mother and father both 14 inches so on the smaller side of the beagle breed.  They received their 1st DA2PP, check-up and dewormer.  Although are ready this weekend for adoption being they will be 8 weeks old on Tuesday (born Sept 9th), most are already spoken for from peopel seeing them last weekend when they came in!

Also dropped off Saber, Korona and Chad for their spay/neuter, am picking them up very shortly for their recovery here at NARC.  Korona and Saber already had their shots from their last visit at the vet’s and Chad is getting his Rabies and DA2PP today.  They will be ready the following weekend for adoption, giving them a good recovery time here at NARC.

Weekend passed

We worked hard on Friday to “spook the woods” for the walkathon on saturday and then worked even harder on saturday morning burning the left overs from the LOWES project.  We had the debris and left overs in front of the modular home and all got together to move it or burn it.  What a great team NARC has, everyone pitching in, few fire bugs keeping the fire going all day – great team work!  The walkathon was a lot of fun, we chatted so much that we ended up starting very late and walked only the woods but we promise to make it bigger and better again next year.  In hopes of having it just before dark to make it even more spooky and fun!  The dogs enjoyed their walk in the woods with all the monsters and zombies in the bush!  We have pictures to share, will post them under events shortly.  Have a look at the pictures from the Lowes project and teams at work under “Events” then “LOWES Project”.  Enjoy!

It’s starting….

I see the goblins and ghosts getting ready this morning and brewing what I hope is morning coffee and not our visitors or volunteers!  Come and join me in the spooky woods doggy walkathon, registration starts at 9am and walk will commence at 10:30am.  I am sooooo scaarreeed about all these monsters in the back yard!


Many updates – LOST Dog

Lowes came yesterday and finished the front extention – thank you to each member of LOWES staff who came to help NARC – you guys are amazing!  Now to install siding on both projects LOWES built before winter!

Dropped off Cherry at the vet’s for her spay and at the same time brought Missy again to check her face as it is not healing right.  She is now on skin antibiotics and we were told to keep flushing it with the saline and keep creaming the area twice a day. 

LOST DOG:  Black small short haired dog was found near Jeanne D’arc last night and brought to us by a client.  If you have lost your puppy, give us a call, we will need proof of ownership (pictures, vet invoices) before releasing any dog brought into our care.

Updates at the farm!

Lowes is almost finished their project, they are such an amazing group and a few said they would come back on Wednesday to finish off.  I can’t wait for you to see all the pictures of everthing that was going on this weekend.

I just found and of course bought a heavy duty pantry and 2 heavy duty book shelves.  Was thinking of doing wall to wall cabinets in the grooming area, well with these it will be accomplished.  They are being delivered this afternoon so will paint that wall we haven’t had time to get done over the weekend and install the new cabinetry!

So many things on the go this month, it’s AMAZING!  Thanks again to LOWES employees, our wonderful NARC volunteers whom have worked really hard the last few days prepping for painting, then re-installing everything back to it’s place!

Lowes and NARC volunteers at work!

What an amazing day – thank you LOWES for the back and front closed in decks and of course our wonderful volunteers who came and helped paint inside NARC all day.  Will post all pictures in a folder shortly so you see everything but for now, few show and tells from a few projects we did at NARC today.  All together, almost 30 people showed up to work hard today, staff from LOWES and our volunteers.  We installed the dog run that was donated yesterday, moved the huge dog house to the proper location and attached the run to it.  We painted, we built back and front entrances/decks, some racked the gravel we spread last weekend at the front of the NARC house – lots of work was done.  Although it was a pretty cold day – peopel were warm at heart!  Can’t thank everyone enough for their dedication to our rescue and a huge THANK YOU to LOWES for doing this project for us!  Our poopers send you big HUGS and drooly kisses lol

It’s starting!

The load from LOWES has arrived bright and early, 7:45am this morning so we are now ready for tomorrow’s construction day!  Can’t wait, very excited and obviously so are the doggies, they were lucky to be taken out very early this morning to bark at this tractor trailer driving in!  The weather is already nice this morning, let’s hope it stays that way for a few days!

Ready for the weekend!

First I would like to say that we could use a few new mops, brooms and mop pales for the rescue.  We are getting ready for another hard working weekend ahead.  Bought paint rollers and getting ready to start painting the rescue facility this weekend.  Lowes is coming to start building our gazebo connecting both the NARC building to the side trailer, giving us more room for clients visiting this winter.  Can’t wait to see the end results, will take pictures and share them as the work is progressing.  Together, we are also painting, closing off the back decks so we have less shoveling this winter and reducing the winter cold from coming in through the doggy trap door.  Many projects on the go, last weekend we put new gravel in front of NARC, this weekend we need to level it out and pact it down so that the plow this winter doesn’t push it around…  Go Go Go, let’s get this party started tomorrow bright and early in hopes of getting a few major projects done before winter.  If you are visiting in the next few weeks, please drive and park on the new gravel, only cars will help pact it down!
