WinstonWinston Has His Forever Home

Winston was only 4 months old when his owner threw him down a flight of stairs then dumped him at a high kill shelter. Last Chance Rescue raced to Winston’s aide hearing he was scheduled to be destroyed. Our vet valiantly tried to save Winston’s badly injured leg but the damage was too extensive and the day before Christmas Winston’s rear right leg had to be amputated. Your kindness, your love of animals helped us to help Winston who is now loving life, sleeps between his mom & dad snuggled tight at night and is so very loved in his forever home.

SophieMeet Sweetheart Sophie

Sophie thought she found her forever home, but when her owner was placed in jail, this poor little girl found herself abandoned, chained to a tree with no food or water for days. A good samaritan called LCR and we took one look at that beautiful face and knew she deserved a happy ending. Unfortunately, Sophie has advanced heartworm and is in desperate need of a compassionate person to foster her while she must go through heartworm treatment. Sophie is a loving soul, and wonderful with other dogs. If interested in helping, contact Sharen at 548-5720 or to help with a monetary donation towards Sophie's medical care mail to; Last Chance Rescue P.O. Box 1208, Howell Mi. 48844.
