Leave No Paws Behind is a 501 (c) 3 non profit corporation governed by the laws of the State of California. We are an all breed rescue, specializing in seniors and pets with special needs. When possible we step up, most times in the "11th" hour when all hope is gone, to help save the lives of those that are in most danger of being left behind to die on a cold shelter floor. LNPB provides hospice care, comfort, love and a safe haven for the terminally ill and the hard core cases and we try to assure that no senior animal is left to die alone wondering.
We will Leave No Paws Behind make a difference in the lives of those who devote their time to loving and caring for animals in need. We are the voice for those who cannot speak and we are doing for them what they cannot do for themselves. In honor of all our four-legged canine and feline friends, we are helping senior shelter animals one paw at a time.
LNPB will never board a rescued animal. Upon rescue, LNPB immediately has all of our animals vetted. LNPB never determines the outcome or diagnosis of our rescues, we simply pull and rescue them and then take them immediately to the vets. Those with minor and treatable medical needs and disabilities per diagnosis from the vets are then placed in the loving care of short term fosters until they are adopted. LNPB’s more serious medically challenged rescues such as seniors who may suffer with terminal and/or severe mobility medical conditions as diagnosed by the vets, are placed in loving hospice/long term foster care for as long as needed.
From time to time, and when deemed necessary by our vet’s diagnosis, due to severe pain and suffering, we have the sad task of helping our beloved animals cross the Rainbow Bridge. We are with them, holding and loving them in the end as they peacefully pass quietly in our arms. We are doing for our four legged friends what they cannot do for themselves.
