WARF SANCTUARY

Welcome to our sanctuary! It is on our 20-acre property in Stagecoach, Nevada. We intend to house both dogs and cats there. This will allow us to pull at-risk animals from euthanasia lists and give us a safe place to evaluate and work with them prior to placing them in foster care or permanent homes. We will also be working with the Lyon County Animal Services, helping them with feral cats and some of their harder to place dogs, reducing the burden on that facility substantially.

Currently we have an inhabited caretaker's home on site. We have also completed our first double cattery and two dog cabins.

The sanctuary is currently housing two dogs saved from euthanasia lists at local shelters and sixteen feral cats, some of whom had been living in a parking and others who were at risk of being poisoned in a trailer park. With help from volunteers, we have made great progress with the multipurpose building including: drywall, painting and beginning tile work, and completing the insulation. Next will be sealing the kennels and floors, building the catios, dog kennels and run and dog play yard.

Landscaping has continued including two retaining walls completed, decomposed granite spread in multiple areas, interior fences around the camper area and the cattery and strength added to the exterior fence. A memorial garden for animals and loved ones has been designed and begun.

We still have portions of the interior to complete including the office and storage area, the grooming area, a medical suite and an adoption area but that is contingent on securing additional funding.
