***=(^..^)= <'\__~ =(^..^)= -- //\\ --Adopting a NARS Animal is no easy task-but it is definitely worth the effort. NARS wants to ensure that the life long bond between a NARS rescued animal and it's human is a strong one built on love, caring and understanding. Adopting a NARS rescued animal isn't just adopting any animal...we believe there is no such thing as just "any animal". Animals are individuals, with distinct personalities all their own and therefore are considered life companions and friends. To ensure the success between a NARS animal and it's human we require you, the potential adoptor, to spend a little more time and effort getting to know the special animal that may become a very important part of your life and in turn, you become a very important part of theirs. NARS Adoptions are Successful because we take the Time...Should you see an animal that you would like to meet we ask that you contact us to set up an initial appointment. After your first initial meeting should you be interested in pursuing an adoption, you must complete an Informational Hands-On Adoption Class specified for your specific breed of animal at which time you will be supplied with our Adoption Guidelines. Upon class completion, we ask that you visit the animal a minimum of 3 more times at our facility before you are allowed to take that animal home. We will also conduct a home visit to ensure your home and it's surroundings is suitable for the animal you are interested in adopting. You will be required to complete an Adoption Contract as well as give permission for us to conduct a personal background check as well as check your references. Anyone living in an apartment, condo or leasing/renting their residence must provide written proof of landlord acceptance of the animal you are considering adopting before that animal is released into your full-time care. We reserve the right to check up on our animals at any time and may revoke an adoption and remove the animal immediately should the rules of our Adoption Contract be violated in any way. Not only will the animal be removed but so will it's offspring should our NO BREEDING clause be violated. Violators will not receive a refund or be allowed to adopt from us in the future. Adopting a living creature is a privilege as well as a great responsibility. NARS takes these responsibilities very seriously. It is our mission to ensure the safety and well being of each of our rescued animals throughout their entire lives.Thank you.
Adoption fees are based on each individual animals intake costs (veterinary care, hoof care, vaccinations, coggins, medicines, deworming are just some of the costs incurred upon intake), as well as their level of training and care. We do not profit from our adoption fees, we only wish to offset some of the costs we have incurred to care for each individual rescued animal.

(A NARS Sanctuary Resident)
EVERYBODY LOVES KEVIN!
WHAT A DOLL!
Digit is quite striking with her dark black coat and gorgeous blue eyes and has been accepted by the "Cool Kids"
(Hangin' with Mani, Tucker and most recently her old buddy Kevin has joined the crew!)
Born in 2002, this incredibly sweet, super easy to handle little mare is the first to whinny and come up to you to get her hugs and kisses. This pretty little girl had foundered prior to her arrival at NARS and is now kept on a primarily dry lot and is fed grass hay only. In addition, Digi requires her teeth examined every 6 months and her teeth must be floated a minimum of once per year.
Since her arrival we have seen a huge turn around in her overall demeanor as she now very trusting, social and is now RUNNING around and playing with her friends, and is a very happy little girl.

Hens & Pullets
Every now and again we will get a sick or injured bird brought in to Northwoods. Once that animal is deemed healthy, he or she may then be ready for adoption.
Breeds and colors vary.
Our chickens are individuals living creatures and are not food. They do produce eggs of which our chickens lay and leave the nests causing no stress to them during gathering. They live a safe and peaceful existence.

(Senior in Sanctuary Care)
THE PERFECT BUDDY!
Currently 16 years old.
This sweet senior is not a lab in a hole, but rather an interesting mix of dashing daschund and loving lab! Don't let those little legs fool ya...he loves to go out for runs and walks. He was raised with mini daschunds, so he thinks he is tiny and loves to snuggle in your lap. He sits, takes treats gently and loves his belly rubbed. He is very loving and protective of his family. He does especially well with women/girls. He gets alongs just fine with other dogs as well as cats, is potty trained. He does not like to be crated or left for long periods of time, it stresses him out. He also loves to travel and is excellent in the car!
(Senior in Sanctuary Care)
Just up from her kitty nap and a still a little sleepy, you just can't help but look at that teeny little pink nose and those HUGE orange eyes! Purrsia is an 16 yr old purebred Persian cat with a wonderful disposition. She is extremely sweet and affectionate as well as beautiful! Purrsia is spayed, dewormed, with no health concerns or behavioral issues.
BEFORE AND AFTER
Standing 10H tall, born in 1997, with once sad eyes, one blue and the other brown, this very sweet sable and white pinto mini mare arrived covered in layers upon layers of burrs and requiring corrective hoof care. The L-shaped hooves rendered her virtually immobile and the painful layers of burrs only exasperated the condition. Little Miss Nickers was in our Northwoods Rehab Program.
They said to euthanize him! He is crippled. What good is he?
How or when his spine was injured or what, if any, neurological damage he sustained is a mystery, they do not really know. In fact, they really don't know what happened to him. He arrived at NARS having not been handled, a stallion, as well as having great difficulty maneuvering his hind quarters due to his mysterious injury. The first step was to get him into a safe, solid wood stall with non slip mats and the perfect amount of bedding to ensure he would be ok. Next, we would change that terribly degrading name they had given him to something very special. I would name him after my childhood horse and best bud, Rusty. After allowing him time to get acclimated to his new surroundings and bond with me, he was transported to a gelding clinic where I was then told that he would be euthanized due to this particular vets opinion in that he would never get up from surgery.
In this case, I knew otherwise. This little guy had spirit and he sure as heck didn't come all this way not to be able to be given a fair chance.
That little guy got right up! And I appreciated the apologies from those that would have rather just given up on him. After I felt it was safe to transport him back to NARS safely, he loaded right into the trailer and home we went!
He was a trooper through it all!
Rusty and Nickers formed a tight bond. He could be typically found not very far from her making sure she is alright.
