A Message from LCR Founder Lori McCutcheon:

“The Tale of the Little Tail”

 

When Last Chance Ranch has room and available resources we seek out animals in need and give them their Last Chance. We go to high kill shelters and help save animals from death row. If we can pull a dog from euthanasia it actually helps two dogs:  the one we saved and the one we made room for.  

 

I, being a German shepherd fan, get calls often to see and evaluate shepherds. I was at a kill shelter leaning against the kennel trying to make friends with a young male shepherd when one of the kennel attendants walked by.  Just under his arm I could see a little tan tail hanging out. I stopped him and asked, “What’s that?”  He turned and I could see the cutest little Chihuahua face, all of about 4 lbs, with a smile on her face having no idea what was around the next corner.  I asked what he was doing and he said the poor dog had tumors and was on her way to being put to sleep and out of her misery.  I am not a veterinarian, but I have a lot of years of animal experience and to me they just didn’t look like tumors. I asked if I could have her and take her to my vet for a second opinion. They didn’t hesitate to sign her over to me to help possibly save her life.  

 

Another hallway, a different direction, timing of just the right moment… if I wasn’t there to catch a glimpse of that tiny little tail, she would have been gone. I didn’t really ask, nor did I care who it was that had thrown this adorable little pooch away without a second thought. We brought her home and immediately took her to Quakertown Vet where Dr. Sam Geller and many others there work with Last Chance Ranch helping us save lives.  Dr. Sam agreed with what I had thought, these where not tumors, but a horribly huge hernia. He said it may be tough, but was fixable.  So we scheduled surgery for the following week.  Whisked away just in time from the dog pound, but her ordeal is not over yet.

 

Two days later, our kennel manager saw poor little Lola wasn’t feeling well. She noticed Lola was having a hard time eliminating and that her protruding belly seemed bigger.  We went off to the vet to see if we could have her surgery pushed up sooner. With the great skills of Dr. Guy Denardo and Dr. Courtney Zeledon, Lola underwent surgery to correct her failing abdominal wall. Critical and anemic, we were scared she would not make it through this, but we had to try. After 3 days of ICU care in Qvet hospital, Lola was released into my care for continued nursing and convalescence.

 

Just two days into rehab she was  greeted by our Junior Rescuers Club for snuggles, open arms of love and well wishes. Lola just soaked up the attention and is loving life. She is quite the ”diva” with demands for dinner and outside time along with comfortable naps on the couch watching TV. Lola will be ready for a new home in about 2-3 weeks when the vets say she is good to go.

 

Please help us help animals like Lola. The cost of her surgery has not been calculated yet, but even with generous discounts from our vets, surgeries like this cost thousands of dollars. LCR spends upward of $200,000 each year in medical expenses saving animals like Lola. Please help us continue making a difference in their lives.

LCR IS EXPANDING

...AND YOU CAN BE PART OF THE PLAN!

With the growing need for our life-saving services, education seminars and clinics, LCR has used up every inch of space to help rescue, rehabilitate and rehome abused and neglected animals. We're excited to announce that we've received the final go-ahead to begin our 5-Phase Agriculture and Education Center Expansion Project!  (Full Business Plan available here).

 

The expansion includes, but is not limited to, Meet and Greet rooms for potential adopters to get to know their new 'family member' in a comfortable atmosphere, our own Surgical Suite for in-house veterinary care, small animal areas strategically built into the walls, a large covered building for evaluating. training and teaching volunteers about the animals we care for, along with 3 large seminar rooms for all-weather training of dogs, horses, seminars and clinics. 

 

This is a million dollar project that will allow everyone of all ages and abilities to interact and become an integral part of LCR's animal rescue family.
