The Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation (LDCRF) was established in 2001 and has worked tirelessly since to rescue dogs and cats in need from rural shelters, crisis situations, and the threat of euthanasia — and give them loving temporary care until they find homes. For over 18 years, they have remained committed to rescuing animals in need, finding homes for more than 30,000 dogs and cats, and have been forerunners in people-friendly adoption practices like same day adoptions and easily accessible volunteer opportunities. Since their inception, LDCRF has dedicated a portion of all resources to the rescue and care of senior pets.
The Grey Muzzle Organization grant will allow the Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation (LDCRF) to provide needed medical treatment to our senior dogs. This will empower potential adopters to make informed decisions about their ability to provide care for a new family member. Support from Grey Muzzle will help dogs like 10-year-old Santos, who is blind and was rescued after his elderly owner could no longer care for him. Santos arrived malnourished, with severely matted fur, glaucoma in both eyes, skin issues, and a broken spirit. Currently in foster care with LDCRF, he is getting the extensive veterinary care he needs to regain his health and be ready for adoption.
