Pets at Our Shelter:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:Benton County, Arkansas. We do sometimes adopt to people outside the county if it not more than an hours drive from Lone Pine.
About Our Shelter:Lone Pine was started by our director over 25 years ago and LP became a non-profit, 501(c)3 in 2003. The Shelter is ran primarily by volunteers. Even the director works a full time job outside the shelter to pay her bills. When we can afford it, we do hire a quarter time employee to help with the heavy stuff.
Lone Pine is a no-kill shelter with over 90 dogs and cats (as of September 2014). Many of the animals have been at the shelter since they were only a few weeks old. Sadly, many of them will not get adopted and will live out their life and die at the shelter, never knowing a true home. Lone Pine isn't like other shelters in that it is not a brick and concrete facility. The Shelter sits on 4 acres.
The dog kennels range in size from 6 ft x 6 ft to 3 times that size. All kennels have a roof, a gravel or brick floor, and each dog has a dog house. There are three different exercise yards that dogs in that area are let out to play in.
The Cat Barn is a converted milk barn. The cats are free to move about the barn. There is an enclosed patio area that the cats love to go and catch some sun in.
Lone Pine's mission is to help the animals at the shelter get a forever home. Until that happens, shelter volunteers will provide the animal with a safe and healthy environment to live out its life. Volunteers also educate the public about the importance of spaying and neutering pets to reduce the number of unwanted animals being euthanized every year. LP also offers a low cost spay / neuter program.
WISH LIST: Volunteers, Foster Homes, canned dog and cat food, light color collars of all sizes (we write the names on them), Cedar chips, bleach, heavy heavy duty trash bags, money for vet car and medication.
Lone Pine survives on donations, grants, and fees that are collected from what few adoptions we have take place each year. If you would like to donate, please go to our web site at www.lonepineshelter.org for more information.
Come Meet our Pets:The shelter is open to the public ONLY on Saturdays, 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. However, if we do not have a volunteer to open, or the weather is bad, the Shelter does close. Please check our website at www.lonepineshelter.petfinder.com before you come out for opening and closing times.
