Great Volunteers and Rentable Pool Area/Dog Parks!

Talk about helpful volunteers! Boy Scout Benjamin and his crew built and painted several benches for us today. Thanks to them, we have plenty of places to sit in our pool area and two dog parks now. Would your dog like to enjoy our pool area and dog parks? Need some get-away time yourself? Our dog parks and pool areas are rentable. Information and pricing are available on our website (scroll down to Additional Activities):


Our current “log-in” computer for volunteers and staff is no longer allowing us to open the program we use for keeping track of volunteer and staff hours. We have had an IT specialist assess it and there is no hope to bring it back. Do any of our supporters have a Windows computer that could be donated (tax-deductible) to us? It would be greatly appreciated by volunteers, staff, and yes even the dogs – the faster we can log-in, the faster we can spoil them!

What is one of the many advantages to adopting from New Leash On Life? When you adopt a dog from our rescue, we are available for any questions you may have after the adoption. Send us an e-mail or give us a call. When Bandito's adoptor e-mailed us a question she had, we were happy to see photos attached. Look at how swimmingly he is getting along with his feline housemate, Snickers! If you already have furry family members, check out our adoptable dogs to see dogs that are compatible with other dogs and/or cats.

Learning To Survive the Pain of IVDD

Have you ever wanted to learn more about the condition IVDD?

IVDD, also known as Intervertebral Disc Disease, is a condition in which a disc develops a problem and the material inside escapes into the spinal column, ultimately causing pain, nerve damage, and even paralysis. The condition is seen more often in dogs than cats, and tends to plague the "longer-bodied" breeds, such as: Dachshunds, Basset Hounds, Corgis - even Bulldogs - as well as many more.

the story behind the name

When it came time to name sisters Marilyn and Audrey, it was obvious they needed monikers as regal as their looks and as graceful as their manners. Audrey Hepburn would have been 87 years old today, and we jumped at the chance to name one of our adoptable dogs after her. In celebration of Audrey Hepburn’s birthday let’s give Marilyn and Audrey the gift of a forever home! Please visit our website for more information about them and to fill out an adoption application.
