There are more than 200 million stray dogs worldwide according to the World Health Organization. The lives of these homeless dogs are generally very short and very difficult especially in countries with limited resources dedicated to animal welfare. This is where we come in!
Who We Are
Loved at Last Dog Rescue is a Vancouver-based, registered non-profit organization that focuses on finding homes for dogs in need. Our organization is made up of approximately 75 semi-permanent volunteers, 100 on-call volunteers and 50 foster homes. Each year we approve approximately 400 homes for one of our overseas or local dogs.
Our Main Focus
We focus mainly on rescuing dogs from overseas countries where there is a critical homeless dog population and a lack of available resources to care for them. We also help local dogs in need of a home but fortunately, there are very few stray dogs in Canada and most dogs here are generally considered to be valued family members.
What We Do
We partner with shelters in the Middle East, China, South Korea, Mexico, Bali, India, the US, and together with their amazing volunteers who work tirelessly to help get dogs off the streets, we bring them to their forever homes in BC.
The Rescue Process
Rescuing generally begins with a dog being picked up off the street by a compassionate individual who takes the dog to a shelter where they are cared for until they are ready for adoption. Meanwhile, Loved at Last screens and approves a suitable home based on a detailed description of the dog’s traits and characteristics. The dog is then placed on a wait list until a Flight Volunteer can be found to accompany the dog on its flight to Vancouver or Seattle.
