Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

The Last Dog Rescue aims to find safe and loving homes for dogs who through no fault of their own, are left behind in kill shelters. We primarily serve PA, but will adopt out to qualified adopters outside the area.

About Our Rescue Group:

The Last Dog Rescue was formed when two friends found a hound dog that was to die at noon that day, they called and the dog was alive! She was brought (all by volunteers) to PA where she later became a foster failure. The following week another hound was to be killed. He was brought by volunteers to PA and found a new home. This pattern was repeated again, and the rescue was born. We believe that every dog is special and there is a special home for each of them.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
