Loved at Last Dog Rescue - Vancouver - Volunteers

Who We Are

Loved at Last Dog Rescue (LALDR) 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 over 400 homes for one of our overseas or local dogs.

Focus on finding dogs their furever homes

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 British Columbia.

What We Do

We partner with shelters in the Middle East, China, South Korea, Mexico, Bali, India, and 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.

Rescue Process - Flight Volunteer

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, LALDR 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 International Airport or Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.
