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

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
email@example.com. After we have reviewed your
application, if we feel as though we have a dog to match with
you, we will contact you.
