Mural in the ARL Lobby
The Animal Rescue League gives a huge “thank you” to local artist
Terry Flannery and mural sponsor Ginny Rumsey for making our Rainbow
Bridge mural possible. Our lobby changed from a great new room to a
showplace with the addition of the mural.
The large mural depicts a sampling of our animal companions –
various breeds of dogs and cats, horses, ferrets, guinea pigs and
even a llama – who have passed on and are waiting for us at the
Rainbow Bridge. According to the poem, that’s the place where our
pets romp and play until we get there and are reunited in happiness.
As a fundraiser for the ARL, you can have your pet become part of
the mural. The frame around the mural is divided into 84 six-by-six
inch squares. For a donation of $300 per square, or two squares for
$500, artist Terry Flannery will paint an original portrait of your
pet on canvas. Portraits will be painted from a photograph supplied
by you. They will then be placed on the frame of the mural for
permanent display at the ARL. You will receive a memorial print of
the portrait signed by Terry Flannery.
For more information on purchasing a square or two, contact Barrie Pease at 610-373-8830 or email at

The Animal Rescue
League is saddened to announce that ARL supporter LA Dodgers Chad Billingsley
underwent Tommy John’s surgery and will be out for the remainder of the 2013
season. We wish him the best for a speedy and complete recovery.
Tiffany, commented on the news stating that, “Chad and I are extremely bummed
that his season ended this year. The surgery is highly successful and he hopes
to be ready for the 2014 season! Our support for the ARL will continue for many
Chad might be
out of the game, but he is still on the team and is willing to support us in a
new and exciting way this year! Now it’s our turn to step up to the plate and
throw some of our own pitches!
Beginning May 1, the ARL launched a new program called Paws 4 Patriots. The ARL’s
Paws 4 Patriots program was developed for veterans in our
community in need of giving and receiving special love and attention, and for
cats and dogs at the ARL who need exactly the same thing. Shelter animals
often experience the same sense of loss and loneliness when being left by their
family as veterans do who are suffering from service related disabilities.
Patriots brings veterans and shelter animals together, providing each
other with companionship and devotion that helps them heal one another together.
The program’s ability to provide these animals to veterans relies on your
- $125 covers the adoption
· $140 provides for a
veterinary wellness exam;
· $500 or more helps a
any general donation will be gladly accepted to support the programs efforts.
If the Paws 4 Patriots
program can raise $22,800 by November 2, 2013 Chad and Tiffany Billingsley will
match that amount! This would generate a total of $45,600 for the ARL’s program
benefiting disabled veterans in our community! However, we cannot do it without
The Billingsleys have made
their pledge, so now it’s your turn to get in the bull pen and start throwing
some strikeout-worthy pledges!

dogs labeled “purple,” you will need to attend one
of our volunteer orientation classes. Once
completed, then you will be allowed to walk both
“green” and “purple” coded dogs.
orientation classes will be held on Tuesday, June 4
at 6:30pm and Saturday, June 8 at 1:30pm. Please email
email@example.com to register for one of

ANNOUNCING A NEW
The ARL is pleased
to announce a new program called Kennel
Companions. The goal of this program is to give special
attention to those dogs who have
been waiting longer than others for an adoptive home.
Each dog is assigned a volunteer who is responsible for working
one-on-one with the dog for socialization and behavioral
training. In order to qualify to be a Kennel Companion, the
volunteer must commit to working with the dog at least three
times a week. We are looking for committed
individuals who will work with their dog until it is adopted or
can be placed in a foster home!
Please read the
Kennel Companions Program overview for more detailed
If you wish to
sign up, please complete the application and email it to Kristi
firstname.lastname@example.org. After we have reviewed your
application, if we feel as though we have a dog to match with
you, we will contact you.
