Save the Life of a Homeless Dog - Foster or Adopt!
Are you looking for a new four-legged companion to join the family? Maybe you are unable to commit to a permanent addition but would be interested in finding out how you can help the many homeless dogs in need? We are always in need of foster homes which allow us to rescue more dogs from high-kill shelters and give them a chance to find a loving forever home. Thanks for all the help and support out there!
Save a Life - Foster or Adopt
Left Behind K-9 Rescue is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation organized for the purpose of saving homeless dogs and allowing them a second chance at life through our rescue, transport, foster care, rehab, and adoption programs. Our primary objective is to prevent the euthanasia of healthy dogs by working towards re-homing the abandoned, stray, and neglected ones who are in need.
We are managed and operated 100% by volunteers. We have no paid staff, meaning more dollars go directly to the dogs in need. By working with committed volunteers, along with local veterinarians and trainers, we will be able to rescue hundreds, and one day thousands, of dogs every year.
Email us at email@example.com to find out how you can help us save more lives.
The Pet Overpopulation Problem
Every year, approximately 7 million dogs and cats enter animal shelters nationwide and nearly 4 million of that number are euthanized. That means that every day, nearly 11,000 pets are killed off. Simply put, for every two dogs that enter your local animal shelter, one of them is destroyed merely because there is no one there to adopt him.
(a short, informative video)
"There is a moment, when the paperwork has been completed, and the animal is being handed over to the shelter staff... if you watch carefully, you can sometimes see the exact moment when the animal comprehends what is happening, when he finally realizes that his guardian is leaving and he is staying; the exact moment when the confusion in his eyes is replaced by understanding, and then turns to panic, followed by desperation. Sadness, that will turn to grief as the days unwind, while he waits for another chance that may or may not come."
