Looking Glass Animal Rescue (“LGAR”) is a nonprofit volunteer-based animal welfare organization dedicated to rescuing dogs from high-kill shelters, hoarding situations, puppy mills, animal fighting rings and more. While we welcome all animals in need, we specifically focus on animals that are often overlooked due to age, breed, special need or an illness or injury requiring immediate, often costly medical attention that shelters are unable to provide. Without a rescue outlet, these animals would otherwise be euthanized due to their issues.
Lastly, for each animal that we place, we provide extensive education on how to transition the animal into their new life. Basics like crate training, house training, obedience training, and the best ways to introduce resident pets are integral for the success of the relationship. When necessary we will also engage professional trainers for those animals that need specific behavior modification in an effort to help our animals and their new family position themselves for success. Mental health is as important as physical health and we believe that every animal should be given the chance to lead a life free of fear and anxiety. Like psychologists, professional trainers are often the only ones equipped to transition an abused animal from the life that once "was" to the life that "could be". Our goal is to ensure that all of our animals become a cherished and welcomed member of their new family for the remainder of their lives.
Without you, we don't exist! Here are three ways to help right now:
•Give: Your gift of any size can give an animal a second chance and even save a life. Your monthly gift can help us budget and plan more effectively allowing us to potentially save more lives.
•Share: Help spread the word on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter by sharing the news of our launch with all your contacts – don’t forget to “Like” our page and sign up for our e-newsletter!
•Act: Make a face-to-face impact by becoming a Foster Caregiver. When you volunteer as a foster caregiver, you’ll help change lives…including yours!
Our organization does not have a shelter where the dogs can be visited. Our dogs are in foster homes throughout the Northeast. We do NOT arrange meetings between interested individuals and our Fosters until an applicant has been approved via this adoption process. You may need to drive to meet your new pet for both meet and greets and final adoption transfer.
Once you have been approved, adoption coordinator will contact you about scheduling a time for you to meet the dog(s) you are interested in. This meeting may occur at the foster’s residence or your home. Please plan to travel at least part of the way, if needed.
