Camelot Puppy Sanctuary and our sister Kitty Sanctuary, Poplar Creek,(with Denise at the helm) houses and cares for a minimum of 50 animals at a time. We also support, share resources. network and volunteer with many other benevolent folks, who help us create the most optium chances for our dogs and kitties to find good homes.

Some of these groups are Faithful Forgotten Best Friends of Columbus, who provide food for the pets of homeless folks.

2nd Chance Companions, who help us place some of our dogs into the Prison Program in Lancaster, Stop the Suffering and their volunteers who pull and place dogs at the Perry County Pound(among other pounds)who are at greatest risk of death. We have commited to many older, hard to place old timers, who come here to live out their lives. We are very invested in allowing these old timers quality Hospice care and a natural process of transition into non-physical.

*********************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Over the Hills at Camelot, one can see that spring has arrived....we can tell because we have traded piles of snow for piles of puppies. We are always working on better housing for mothers and pups and excited about helping them get a great start on their next new adventures. This includes feeding a Natural raw diet, lots of exercise and learning social skills.

The generousity we receive means the world to us. We are given food and beds and blankets without which we would hardly be able to do this work. But winter brings special challenges from heat to vet bills to creating accommodations for animals who must be brought inside. For this reason we are asking for donations of $Dollars. We Welcome gifts at any level.

$25 means heat for a month in the Senior and Puppy Parlor room

$50 means vaccinations or worm medicine for a litter of pups

$75 means a spay or neuter to prevent more homeless puppies

$100 GRAND will buy us ALL a Summer on an AlaskanCruise !

We have so many wonderful animals, each with a story, and so many wonderful people with stories too.

It is such a great and hopeful thing when these stories link up and create a Happy Beginning~ Thanks so much for sharing your stories with us.

meager beginnings

~~Free at last...Free at Last... THANK goD almighty, I AM free at last~

Ready for his road trip to his forever home in Las Vegas~

Randall's Proud new Parents, Glen and Marcia

A pensive moment at his new Shack

These pictures speak 1000 words! from his picture, tied up in the cold, to his 'happily ever after' home. His rescue involved Many Kind Hearts and dedicated efforts to spring him before he froze to death, and then, be transported and vetted and grommed and evaluated by our behaviorist, find his perfect family, and finally, his journey to his new Forever Home, 1500 miles away in Las Vegas. We are grateful for all who were involved in his success.

This pup was spotted by a Kind Hearted neighbor, who passed him every day on her pack walks. She would position his dog house so that he could, at least, get in it, trek back to her house and bring him unfrozen water and some food... It seems he was being totally ignored except for an occasional meal, and had been on his chain since he was a tiny pup. With much begging, we finally convinced his owners that he was going to die, if not brought inside. It was soooo cold, that they just didn't want to go out and feed him and bringing him in was not an option.... So they finally agreed.

The wheels started churning, phone calls were made, transportation was arranged, miles were traveled, and hook-ups were made. The process was nothing less than miraculous and synchronistic and magical...and involved Many 'doggie angels'.

So this is Randall's story, ( Who now has 3 names.... Randall La Roo) a new mom and dad, some sisters and big brother, a swimming pool and ALL the amenities in life that he deserves.

~I hope you will be inspired to take a chance on a Rescue Dog~

___________________________________________________________________________

We hear about recession, depression and economic downturn, but business is Booming here! It's not harder to make 'ends meet' at the sanctuary...(rear)Ends are meeting daily, followed by wagging tails, romping and running and playing. The dogs never complain about the Dow or care about the S&P, so We Shall Not Either! "Give us this Day, our Daily Burger"...that's our mantra and we're stickin' to it.... Dogs find Joy in EVERY precious moment - something sweet in the air to smell ...something stink-y in the grass to roll in. JOY is Job One and we wish for you and your family, to Quiet your barking minds and see the Genuine Wealth and Beauty that is all around us.

AS the really hot weather sets in....special provisions need to be made for our senior dogs(and there are quite a few now). Extra fans for the 'old folks' part of the house, a few extra 'off the ground' beds and lots and lots of toys and games for the times that walking and playing outside is not possible. (personally I AM hoping for a cooler summer with no power outages...as our small generator doesn't support doggie television.) While we can't take on any more dogs until Spring, we can help you find a place for animals that need help being re-homed before you consider taking them to the pound) Please do not hesitate to call us if you need help rehoming your dogs and pups.

If you would like to help us in our Joyous work. please consider a donation. EVERY penny goes to doggie needs(and some extra treats!).

************************************************************ Kuranda Dog Beds - Rethinking dog beds
Kuranda Dog Beds ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Donate a Bed
Our dogs and Cats LOVE to sleep on Kuranda Dog and Cat beds, but we don't have enough for everyone. It's pretty funny watching the game of musical beds to see who wins...and the sweetest thing is when they share! They now carry a bunk bed that would be fun to try, especially for the young pups that could claim the top bunk. If you would like to donate a bed at a special wholesale price for a another dog and/or Cat to sleep in comfort, please click here.

Who We Are

Camelot was created to help abandoned moms and their pups. They are brought to us by Doggie Angels, who find them in some precarious situation and do not want to take them to the county dog shelter. We adopt the pups, spay the moms and find the moms a home too! Any pups with health issues that are unadoptable, get to spend their lives here. Please consider a donation to help support these 'special needs kids' ~ We also, on occasion, rescue Parrots, Pigs and Ponies.

UPDATE....While we still take in moms and pups, our focus as changed to helping the overwhelming number of older dogs that are being brought to the pounds because of the economic situation and folks loosing their homes. They are not at the pounds though any fault of their own, and deserve a second chance at a forever home. And while lots of folks(myself included) have a hard time going to the pounds and not wanting to take them ALL home), we think that they may have an extra chance if you do not have to go to the pound either..so we bring them here, evaluate their needs and re-home them from our Sanctuary. Things WILL get better, but in the meantime, please consider an older dog that has been with a family before, and is seeking the security and comfort of a new family. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED, as it is most gratifying to know, that even though you may not have as much time with your new friend, as you would with a pup, your compassion and understanding for their plight will REWARD you bountifully! All of our Sanctuary Dogs and Fosters are fed an all Natural/RAW diet.

Don't let it be forgot

That once there was a spot

For one brief shining moment

That was known as Camelot~
