In 2005, Cherie DaLynn established For the Luv of Paws II, Inc. (FLP), a domestic animal rescue and sanctuary, after seeing the tremendous need to have a “no kill” sanctuary for domestic animals that had been neglected, abused and abandoned in Mohave County, Arizona.
The rescue/sanctuary, which is located approximately 25 miles southwest of Kingman, AZ on ten (10) acres of land in Golden Valley, Arizona, is fully permitted and licensed by Mohave County and is recognized by the State of Arizona and the Internal Revenue Service as a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization. A board of directors oversees the operation of the shelter. Volunteers help keep For the Luv of Paws functioning and successful at fulfilling our mission.
The rescue/sanctuary houses on average 175 dogs and cats each month, some who have special needs. All animals receive professional veterinarian care and required immunizations.
Individuals or families who want to adopt a dog or cat from the sanctuary must complete an application, have a secure, fenced yard and agree to a home inspection. No animal is released to their adoptive parents until they have received their immunizations and been spayed or neutered.
Rescue unwanted, abandoned, neglected animals from county shelters, city streets and unsafe living conditions.
Take in owner-surrendered pets.
Provide a loving, clean and safe environment, appropriate shelter, food and necessary medications to all the animals that come to us.
Spay, neuter and vaccinate all intake animals before adoption.
Secure, safe, loving homes for all adoptable animals through an extensive screening and follow up process.
Provide lifetime sanctuary for those animals considered unadoptable because of illness, disabilities, etc.
Develop educational programs for presentation to schools and community organizations, to include, but not limited to: The proper care of pets, spay/neuter, TNR and over-population.
Work with animal control, other shelters, businesses and community organizations to reduce the number of pets and strays euthanized in our area.
The Board of Directors reviews the mission objectives and activities once a year in order to assure that the activities of the organization strive toward attaining the objectives.
