What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

Last Chance Animal Rescue partners with high kill shelters and other rescue organizations to bring animals into our program, freeing up space in the open-intake facilities. Additionally, we offer low cost spay/neuter services to help prevent unplanned litters from being born, therefore, helping to reduce the numbers ever entering the shelter system.

We utilize community outreach techniques to inform the public about our spay/neuter services and, we partner with many shelters and rescue groups to work together to manage overcrowding.

With more than twenty years of experience behind us, we have a proven history of success in methodically and diligently working to conquer this issue.

We work closely with local open-intake facilities and monitor the numbers of animals being euthanized annually.

Each year we spay/neuter more than 20,000 cats and dogs. We also rescue and adopt out roughly 10,000 animals annually. In the coming year, we are working to expand our facility in order to offer greater service to our community.
