What a year. This year we've been cleaning up the aftermath of "COVID Adoptions". In 2020, we weren't even using our website because adoptions were going so fast. We knew there would be consequences and we were right. This year we have had more owner surrenders than ever before. Owners who hadn't socialized their dogs in over a year, and it was apparent. We partnered with 6 new professional trainers to help these owner surrenders get back on track to be the dog they were meant to be. So with time, determination, and a whole lot of love, we have readopted countless dogs back into the community. All thanks to our fosters! In addition to the owner surrenders, and have continued to have numerous medical cases throughout the year ranging from heartworm treatments, treating parvovirus, skin infections, 7 etropian eyelid surgeries, an astronomical amount of dental surgeries, and the list goes on.
WHY WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT TODAY!
This year we've had to be creative. We've had to shift our focus from high adoption numbers to campaign for new fosters, grow our training partnerships, expand our vet clinics (they're just as busy!), and handle turbulence in taking in "broken" canines.
Not only will your donations go to helping our rescue canines with medical assistance, but mental assistance as well. Training has been at the forefront of our focus for the year and we have seen major improvements. We have successfully been able to rehome many canine friends for a second (and last) time on numerous occasions. We truly couldn't do this without you!
Spot's Last Stop Canine Rescue (SLS) is a 501c3, all breed dog rescue located in the Twin Cities. SLS matches local families with homeless canines in need of forever homes by following an adoption process that is easy and fair to adopt a homeless dog in need. Our rescue is comprised of a team of dedicated volunteers and fosters who support our mission to save rescue dogs with love and support. Our foster and volunteer networks are considered family and we all support and encourage one another while sharing the same passion of helping each dog saved to arrive safely to their forever homes.
If you have a specific request for where you would like your money to go (vaccinations, supplies, spay/neuters, etc), let us know and we will make it happen! The more donations we get, the more dogs we are able to take in!
