LDCRF Helps After Hurricane Harvey

Posted on: Wednesday September 6

21317745_10155678806516552_506480769677660245_nLDCRF is proud to be an emergency partner of the Humane Society of the United States.  When Hurricane Harvey hit the Texas/Louisiana area, HSUS asked us to help, and we were happy to oblige.  

 

21430431_10155678806191552_1214933199050441427_nThe mission: get the animals already in shelters when the Hurricane arrived out and into shelters and rescues further north, so that the local shelters and rescues would have plenty of space available for the many pets displaced by the storm. Keeping the displaced pets in their area greatly improves their chances of reuniting with their families. 

This video from the first wave of intake explains LDCRF’s role.  

21317722_10155678806241552_2607843463787051966_nLDCRF accepted 21 dogs from Louisiana shelters on September 2 and will be taking in 20 more on September 10, and additional pets as needed after that.  

In order to accommodate the influx of Hurricane Harvey evacuees, LDCRF is renting additional kennel space.  Further, many of these pets will need specialized medical care.  If you would like to donate to support our efforts, you can do so here or here

#Giving Tuesday

Posted on: Tuesday December 1

What if “living” meant a life full of loving care for every puppy and kitten?
At Lost Dog, we believe that is possible, and there is no better time than today to be part of making it happen. #GivingTuesday is a day when the community comes together for 24 hours of collective giving, a day when your donation dollars matter more than ever.

Today is a day when we see what “living” might really mean for homeless dogs and cats like Amber, pictured above with one of her puppies. Amber was abandoned in a rural shelter, pregnant and without much hope for a future at all. Lost Dog changed that, allowing Amber to give LIFE to her babies in a safe, warm home.

Please consider making a donation to LDCRF today so that we can bring LIFE, in all its glory, to so many more dogs and cats in 2016.
 
GIVE, so they can LIVE life to its fullest on comfy couches, at the end of a leash, from the passenger seat of the family car or from the top of the best cat tree ever purchased.
