Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation: Helping Animals Find their Way Since 2001

lost (adj): 1. unable to find the way. 2. not appreciated or understood. 3. no longer owned or known

We are a non-profit animal rescue organization saving the lives of thousands of homeless and abandoned pets each year. We rescue dogs and cats facing euthanasia in overcrowded shelters, and place them for adoption in loving homes. ALL of our animals are spayed or neutered prior to adoption.
