From Sanctuary One (Jacksonville, Oregon 97530)
The sun finally came out long enough in the Applegate Valley of southern Oregon for us to paint the exteriors of the cottages we’ve built to rescue homeless dogs and cats. That was the last major hurdle before we could obtain a final occupancy permit from the county government. Now that that’s done we can apply for one last permit we need from the local health department. Meanwhile we are decorating the interiors in preparation of taking in some truly needy cats and dogs within a month or two.
We plan to specialize in rescuing the neediest of the needy dogs and cats in our community, that is, homeless pets who are elderly, disabled, ill or injured, or have other disadvantages that make them harder for local animal shelters to find a good home for. We will not intake cats and dogs directly from the public; rather we will serve as a back-up to animal shelters, law-enforcement agencies, and certified rescue groups who have run out of other options to preserve an animal’s life.
