We have seen many things circulating social media since Carol's passing that are hurtful to her memory, especially to those who knew her best. People are making assumptions because details were not provided and some misinformation was provided on news media. We want people to know the truth about Carol to preserve her memory.
This post is being shared with the permission of her husband and this picture is being shared at his request. This picture was taken a month and a half ago while Izanaghi was getting scratches from Carol. It was still approximately 95 degrees outside when this photo was taken.
First, Carol Harris was not simply a volunteer at AARTA as news media has portrayed. She was an officer and the backbone of the rescue as well as the current President of the local breed club. We are reeling without her which will continue for the foreseeable future. We would need dozens of devoted volunteers, just as passionate as Carol was, to pick up the work she accomplished with ease. It will take some time for us to figure out how to do that.
Second, Izanaghi was not a new dog to AARTA. He also was not surrendered as an aggressive dog. He had been in AARTA's care for many months and Carol handled him countless times without incident. Izanaghi deteriorated in the kennel environment after living his first six years in a home. That is why he was not available for adoption as AARTA must stand behind the temperament of every dog placed in a home. Izanaghi turned on Carol and no one will ever know why.
Last, Carol was not a reckless person. She had decades of experience with Akitas and all decisions she made about them were calculated. She handled Akitas very well. Please don't make assumptions about someone who devoted their life to the breed. The misinformation circulating is hurtful to those of us that love her.
Dr and his tech got there and we discussed Rosie’s condition and he definitely
Paperwork �..Dr explained th process to me and assured me she wouldn’t feel anything.
Rosie was beyond ready to go. She didn’t react to the shot in her butt nor the IV.
Before he pushed in the final meds, he asked me if I needed any time with her and I let him know we were ready. I laid down with her and talked to her while Dr did his part.
It was silent and beautiful.
This cannot be an easy job,but I appreciate
I have an aging pack, so, sadly, I am sure I will be seeing them again.
As promised, Rosie was brought home to me. Complete with footprint and a lovely poem.

Please share this message! An old friend of mine had only but a few moments to leave her home with her family from the fires in Santa Rosa. They left at night and in their pajamas and it was a very fast and sudden evacuation. They have 3 kitties, one they were able to take with but the other two were in hiding (as many of us cat lovers know kitties have their secret hiding spaces) they had to leave for their safety with their young ...son and it was impossible for them to stay any longer to search for them as the fire was moving so quickly. They are also not allowed to go back to the site as it is all blocked off. They have confirmation that their home sadly was consumed by the fire. They are devastated and heartbroken and have lost everything they have. Please share the photos of their two very loved and very missed kitties...we are hoping and praying they were able to seek shelter! My heart aches for them! The kitties names are Mishka and Oliver.
They will be coming back to Arizona next week and will need basically everything, clothing, household items, toys for their dear son Owen. If you are able to donate anything at all please let me know! Please comment or message me and I will be sure to set something up to get items to them. Thank you so much!
So Dr. Fixler is currently stuck in traffic...and it got me thinking ..why can't he use emergency lights? I called azdot and spoke to a pet lover who agreed...and her supervisor agreed! It isn't up to them though so I have another number to call. Technically we are an emergency service and there are times where we need to get to a client as fast as we can. Of course its not something he would always use, and I certainly can't imagine him using it at red lights, but in certain situations it would help him get to people and their beloved pets faster. Thoughts???
Please help this pup find his way home!!! He has been missing since May 31st. Last seen on FLW & 100th st in Scottsdale around middle of June. He is a sweet friendly, DEAF dog and his owners miss him terribly!! Please help MAX find his way home! Please share this post!!!
This dogs name is Santan and he is in need of a home! He is an adorable 6 year old bichon/poodle mix. Healthy and super sweet and loving. This is an updated post, Santan is getting along wonderfully with each of our 3 rottweliers. He is following us all over the house and seems to really like my husband. Our kids have played with him quite a bit and he seems to be enjoying them petting him. He is playful and energetic. We are not certain exactly the reason why it did not work in his home. We were told he should be the only dog, however that may not be the case. We were also told to be careful around kids...however so far he has been great with our 6 and 4 year old. Anyone interested please email me!! Thank you! Aliciafixler@gmail.com
