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.

We could not do what we do without all of you and your kind donations!

It is such a helpless feeling knowing that there is nothing you can do to make it better for such a sweet and innocent little soul. Someone posted earlier ” thank you for the update even though it is bad”. Well I got to thinking about that statement and wondered ” how can I possibly respond to that?” Continue reading
The house is quiet, the fur boys are sound asleep and my sweet Alley is right here by my side. I was remembering a conversation I had with someone the other day who told me they were looking for that “perfect fit” in a fur companion for their home. They told me they did not want a senior, they had just lost their senior dog AND , I could not believe their next words when they said, ” they were to much work, too expensive, we do not want to waste our resources on an older dog and we want a young and healthy one, you know “a perfect fit.
