Description

Love At Last conducts research, education, and informational activities to increase public awareness of the necessary animal care to prevent animal suffering, overpopulation and illnesses. We decrease the number of unwanted / euthanized animals in our area by providing information on the U.S. euthanasia rate and the health benefits of spay/neuter via newspaper ads, flyers, booths at meet and greet events, fairs, school programs and other events. We rescue and rehome as many unwanted animals as possible by holding meet and greet adoption events and utilizing websites with our adoptable animals. Before the animal is adoptable, we sterilize, vaccinate, rehabilitate and take care of any necessary vetting needed, all in foster homes and place in permanent, loving homes to approved applicants. The applicants will have to fill out an application and a contract that will state the living condition the animal will live in and other valuable information to provide the best care possible. We save animals suffering from the streets and in the shelters, sometimes even from owners who can no longer care for them. We foster these animals in volunteers homes until we can find them permanent, loving families. Our goal is to educate people on the importance of companion animals in our society to stop the cycle of animal neglect and abuse. We have volunteers who help us feed the strays, lay bedding and help find fosters to get them off the streets and into homes. All fosters have to be approved foster applicants with home checks. They sign a foster application to accept responsibility for any and all events that occur in connection with fostering. There are certain guidelines they have to abide by, like keeping the animals inside unless they take for walks or outdoor activities and to go potty and they also have to have an enclosed fence. The fosters work with the animals and their behavior issues and get them ready to be adopted. We pull animals from the euthanasia list in shelters and give them a second chance. Place them in foster homes as well. These animals get vaccinations, spayed or neutered, heartworm test, deworming and other vet care that is needed to make them adoptable. People who want to adopt an animal have to fill out an application form stating the living conditions the animal will live in and provide vet care of any animals they have or had in the past. They also sign a contract stating they will return the animal back to Love At Last Pet Rescue if it doesnt work out. Adoption events are held at different locations in the houston/Katy and surrounding areas since the rescue has many fosters all over Houston and the outskirts of Houston. Everybody involved in Love At Last Pet Rescue, whether an officer, director or volunteer are all true volunteers and do not get paid. We all volunteer our time for the sake of the animals.
