Christmas Tree of Hope

Rachel Stephens, Austin, Ashley and Avery Tate invite you to donate to The ARK of Cleveland's Christmas Tree of Hope

The ARK of Cleveland invites everyone to join them for their Grand Reopening, Saturday, November 22, from 2-4. ALIVE 105 will do a live broadcast while you enjoy refreshments and register for drawings. Prizes donated by Petco and Happy Tails will be given away at 4 pm.The ARK has moved two doors down from their previous location into a spot better suited to their needs and want to show it off. "We can keep our dogs at this location making it easier for potential adopters to view the dogs during business hours," Bob Caylor, ARK President said.We even have a quiet room, where adopters can take the pet to get better acquainted with it, undisturbed.

The ARK has also started collecting donations from the Christmas Tree of Hope. ARK supporters can purchase paper ornaments to make donations in the name of a former or current pet. "Our 2009 budget is $25,000 and our goal for the Christmas Tree of Hope is $5,000," Caylor said. "This will make it possible for all donations to be kept local," he stated.

Please make a point of dropping by The ARK, Bradley County's No-Kill shelter, Saturday the 22nd to see the new location and say hi to our highly adoptable pets.

You can make your tax deductable donations by dropping by 2163 N. Ocoee Street or by sending it to: PO box 1514 Cleveland, TN 37364-1514

Ocoee the lucky dog update

Ocoee Update: Ocoee completed his heartworm treatment last week at Community Animal Hospital. His skin issue is completely resolved, and his fur has grown back. All but $54 of his veterinary bill was provided by compassionate private donors!

When I picked Ocoee up yesterday morning at Community Animal Hospital, he was eager to make the transition to the next chapter in his new life. "He's such a happy and curious dog!" the staff remarked. He sat by me in the front passenger seat and looked over at other drivers with a big smile as if to say, "Hey, look at me now!" After arriving at the new Ark Adoption Center, Ocoee quickly learned to sit, and made friends with the other dogs available for adoption. While on kennel rest the past month he was neutered, vaccinated, and is already housebroken.

Ocoee can be adopted during regular Ark Adoption Center hours. Thanks to the compassionate donors, who made Ocoee's catastrophic veterinary care, a life saving dream come true for him!
