Last Chance Animal Rescue was founded in 2008 with the goal of saving as many lives as we can from high kill shelters located in rural areas, primarily located in southern states. Since that time we have placed over 6,000 animals into loving homes through our foster based adoption program and helped find rescue for over 10,000 animals through Middle Mutts our shelter advocacy program. We have a very inclusive approach to rescue, which simply means we provide a second chance to animals who might otherwise perish because of their lack of visibility, age, breed, health, handicap or fur color. We rely entirely on our adoption fees, private donations and the support of organizations like Sidewalk Angels. This year alone, among those rescued, we treated hundreds of animals for heartworm, with the help of SWA these animals got the chance at a future and happily ever after. Sadly too many don’t get this opportunity because of the expense of the treatment, thanks to the grant received from SWA we were able to treat even more animals for this curable disease.
In the coming year we will establish our own safe haven to house animals in transition to our adoption program, nursing mothers, and those recuperating from medical treatment. This facility will also be home to animals who are considered unadoptable because they do not fit into a traditional home setting, however we believe they deserve to live and this facility will be designed to provide them that opportunity. We are thankful for Sidewalk Angels and their support, they have been there for us since we started and quite simply our success would not be possible without their ongoing partnership. As we embark on this exciting new chapter we know that we count on their continued support of our life saving mission. We are forever grateful to Rob, Mari, Maria and the rest of the SWA family for believing in our ability to make lasting change in the lives of the animals for whom we are truly their last chance.
