Dog Ranch Rescue to benefit from partnership with Nathan Carlisle Homes

In a unique new partnership, Dog Ranch Rescue will be the beneficiary of an effort to help rescue dogs find new loving homes by Nathan Carlisle Homes, a private, Texas-based developer of active adult neighborhoods.

At its two new North Texas communities–Lakes at Legacy in Prosper and ArrowBrooke in Aubrey–Nathan Carlisle will build secured dog play areas that are certain to be among the most popular amenities in each neighborhood.  Each dog play area will also feature doghouses painted in Nathan Carlisle brand colors. But the company’s love for man’s best friend will go much further, as it supports one of the area’s fastest-growing rescue organizations, Dog Ranch Rescue in Anna.

“More than 60 percent of active adult homebuyers have a pet, and the majority of them are dogs, so the dog play areas will be extremely popular at our new communities,” said Richard Dix, CEO. “In addition, as a locally-based company, we believe it is important to give back to the community, so we’re excited to support Dog Ranch Rescue, which is a true hero in helping save and find homes for hundreds of special dogs each year. We see this partnership as a perfect complement to our commitment to serving dog-loving homebuyers.”

“Dog Ranch Rescue began as a labor of love when our boarding business, Lone Star Dog Ranch, was asked to help nurse one dog back to health and find him a home,” said Owner/Operator Renee Eden. “This led to us starting the non-profit, Dog Ranch Rescue. We now rescue hundreds of dogs each year and have more than 70,000 supporters across the country. We’re very excited to welcome Nathan Carlisle Homes as an important new corporate sponsor of our lifesaving work.”

Nathan Carlisle Homes will be the title sponsor for Dog Ranch Rescue’s second annual Villagefest Gala–Pawsitively Unforgettable–to be held Saturday, October 27th at the Courtyard Dallas Allen at the John Q. Hammons Center. Nathan Carlisle will also provide Dog Ranch Rescue with some unique auction items for the gala, including a customized doghouse and two Villy Custom cruiser bikes built exclusively for Dog Ranch Rescue. The doghouse will be painted in Nathan Carlisle colors, as will one of the special Villy Custom cruiser bikes. The other bike will feature a special emblem and Dog Ranch Rescue colors.

Villy Custom, which is already building custom bikes for each homebuyer in Nathan Carlisle’s Lakes at Legacy and ArrowBrooke communities, is the perfect company for this effort as it is named after the founder’s dog, Villy, and features Villy’s likeness in its logo.

“In our marketing, we talk about the ‘Nathan Carlisle Difference’ and this partnership with Dog Ranch Rescue is an important way to make that difference truly meaningful for our buyers beyond just building them a nice home,” said Dix. “We look forward to continuing our work with Dog Ranch Rescue in the future and will be excited to have homebuyers supporting our efforts as well.”
