The Last Resort Rescue and Wildlife Refuge is dedicated to saving the lives of homeless, neglected, abandoned, and abused animals. Our mission is to rescue, rehab, and permanently re-home these animals. 

Additionally we rescue, rehabilitate and provide refuge for orphaned or injured wildlife at our 86 acre wildlife sanctuary, where they receive emergency medical care, round the clock nursing care, rehabilitation, enrichment and all the skills they need to be successfully released or reintroduced back to the wild. 

Our team of rescuers, vet techs, wildlife rehabilitators, trainers, foster homes and volunteers work tirelessly and diligently every day to bring these animals to safety and meet all their needs. 

Four million pets are euthanized in U.S. shelters each year! In other words, a homeless or unwanted animal is euthanized every 8 seconds in the United States.

We are a small but determined army of animal lovers.  We cannot do it alone. They need our help!!! And we need yours! 

Thank you for your support!   


 I Am an Animal Rescuer

My job is to assist all creatures
I was born with the need to fulfill their needs
I take in new family members without plan or forethought
I have bought dog food with my last dime
I have patted a mangy head with a bare hand
I have hugged someone vicious and afraid
I have fallen in love a thousand times
and I have cried into the fur of a lifeless body

I have "Animal Friends" and "friends who have animals"
I don't often use the word "pet"
I notice those lost at the road side
And my heart aches
I will hand raise a field mouse
And make friends with a vulture
I know of no creature unworthy of my time
We may be master of the animals,
But the animals have mastered themselves
Something people still haven't learned
War and abuse makes me hurt for the world
But a rescue that makes the news gives me hope for mankind

We are a quiet, but determined army
And we are making a difference ever day
There is nothing more necessary than warming an orphan
Nothing more rewarding than saving a life
No higher recognition than watching them thrive
There is no greater joy than seeing a puppy play
Who only days ago, was too weak to eat

I am an Animal Rescuer
My work is never done
My home is never quiet
My wallet is always empty
But my heart is always full!

In the game of life, I have already won!
