Today's Animal in Need

Update from foster mom: 7/24/12 - Rita is a very sweet, friendly, lovable pup.  She is now 5 months old and is a doll! Loves to give kisses and loves everyone. She is not shy at all.  She is good with other dogs and I'm working with her on cats, because she really can't figure them out yet. She is housebroken, sleeps in her crate nicely and loves to play. She is not familiar with the leash yet, but  working on that. She knows her name, knows the word wait and we are working on sit. She is such a good puppy and would be a great addition to any family! 
Hi my name is Rita
My siblings, my mom, Rhoda, and I were surrendered to Animal Control in Tuskegee Alabama by our previous owners.  We were born around February 15, 2012.  We are very nice and friendly puppies just looking for our forever homes.  Will you be it?

  • Who We Are  (501c3 foster based, No Kill, located in Northern NJ)

    Here at The Last Resort our dedicated team works together, combining our skills and love for animals to provide safe haven to so many animals in need.

    Now, more than ever, the economic crisis has left the shelters dangerously overcrowded and hundreds of dogs are being killed every day simply because there is no room!
    We dedicate all of our time, money and energy to saving the lives of these wonderful animals.

    We open our own hearts and homes every day to dogs that would otherwise be killed and even sometimes "gassed" in High Kill Shelters.

    With the help of our wonderful volunteers and foster families, we have saved many animals, but it is not enough. There are literally thousands of  animals suffering at the hands of ignorance and being put to death inhumanely every single day. We only wish we could save them all!

    We are in desperate need of foster homes.  Currently we run everything out of our own homes and foster homes and we are completely FULL! The only way for us to save more dogs is if we have somewhere they can go. We like the idea of a foster home rather than being in the kennel facility as the dogs are always in a home environment rather than a kennel and we can evaluate them more accordingly. If you, or anyone you know would like to become a foster for a dog we saved from death row, please fill out our foster application and we will get right back to you. 

    Eventually we want to have a facility so that we can save more lives.  We are currently in the process of fundraising.  We are collecting donations, supplies and services to build the new facility enabling us to rescue even more animals each year.  We will eventually be holding regular adoption days and community classes to educate people about the importance of spaying and neutering their animals, basic animal care, and living in harmony with local wildlife.
