Leave No Paws Behind is the voice for those who cannot speak. We are an all breed , all foster based rescue, specializing in seniors, End of Life, and animals with special medical needs. When possible we step up to help save the lives of those that are in most danger of being left behind to die on a cold shelter floor.
Upon rescue, LNPB immediately has all of our rescues vetted and those with minor and treatable medical needs and disabilities per diagnosis from the Doctor’s are then placed in the loving care of 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 Doctor’s are placed in loving hospice/long term foster care for as long as needed.

In February Medical costs were $7,950.21, Merchant Fees, $521.25, Mileage Reimbursements for P/U from shelters, to and from fosters, forever homes and vet visits $898.00. Thanks to the generous shelter special programs, Pull Fees were 0!!!! Total Feb costs $9,369.46. Thank you for your continued support! We could not do what we do without all of you and your kind donations!
Day in and day out they wait, hoping and praying that today will be the day someone will stop at their cage and greet them but sadly, no one ever comes. As the days go by, they begin to retreat, grow tired and depressed, they no longer have the strength to rise and finally lose all hope of ever leaving the cold and dismal cage they are now forced to call home. Who are they? They are the “throw a ways”, the ones deemed “unadoptable”, the “sick, the old, the dying and the battered”, they are, more oft than not, our wise and caring beloved seniors. When we finally reach them and extend our hand it’s almost as if they can’t believe we are there for them. Continue reading
Every now and then a rescue story comes along that brings out the good, the bad and the ugly in all of us. We see it here every day at Leave No Paws Behind, Inc. with the continuous onset of sick and dying seniors being abandoned and left behind by the only humans they ever loved, to die alone and wondering on a cold shelter floor, and we ask each and every time, “Who does this”? We cannot comprehend the mentality of someone who can walk away from a beloved animal after all those years and just leave them in a shelter to die a slow and painful death.
He came to us on 02/12/2014, a mere skeleton of himself. He was on the brink of death from starvation, weighing in at only 51 pounds and we held him, begging him to please hang on because his life mattered! Well hang on he did and today Brian, weighing in at 75 pounds, is magnificent, regal AND, wait for it, A FOSTER FAIL!!!! Our boy Brian now has a place to call his very own with the promise of so many tomorrows and we are THRILLED to announce that Brian has been been ADOPTED! Happy tails sweet boy and welcome home!!!!!!
Otto is doing great and getting stronger and more comfortable with each passing day. As we have stated many, many times, and per our update the other day, he will continue to remain with Leave No Paws Behind, Inc. under our care where all his medical and basic needs will be tended to for the rest of his little life. As we have always stated, our first and foremost priority is always the safety and well being of our animals. Our decision for Otto was solely based on what we feel is best for Otto and his on going care.
