Founders Jan Olsen and Sue Bridger started Loved at Last Dog Rescue (LALDR) in 2016 with a mission to help dogs that were most in need. A year later, LALDR became an incorporate non-profit organization on its way to saving hundreds of dogs yearly! Our organization has expanded from its humble origins and now includes over 100 LALDR volunteers. Each of our volunteers truly believes that “love knows no boundaries” and works tirelessly to bring in dogs from high kill shelters around the world. In particular, we focus on the most urgent cases (those including abuse, trauma and a low chance of survival). Many of our dogs have never known a good life and we feel that it is our duty to improve their conditions.
