Charity of the Month March 2015 – The Last Resort
EatSmart fans will continue to select a Charity of the Month in 2015. Fans will submit short stories about the charity’s mission and why it’s meaningful to them. We began our Charity of the Month donations in 2011.
About The Last Resort Rescue:
The Last Resort Rescue is a 501c3 foster based no-kill rescue located in Northern NJ. We rescue mostly dogs from kill shelters down south where the methods of euthanasia are extremely inhumane, for example, the gas chamber and heartstick. We also try and help the dogs locally where the economy is a huge factor and many more people are sadly, having to give up their pets. Since we started our rescue in the latter of 2008, we have saved over 1700 animals. We have just a few core volunteers who pretty much run the entire rescue, 4 to be exact. We have grown tremendously since we started so we are in desperate need of more volunteers to continue growing and the save many more lives.
Our mission is to provide permanent re-homing for all the animals that we rescue. Thousands of beautiful creatures each year are abandoned, neglected, abused and left to die by the people they trusted. Our team of rescuers, vet techs, trainers, foster homes and volunteers work diligently to bring these animals to safety where they can learn to love and trust humans again. Through fund raising, education and community support, we can all make a difference in the lives of these beautiful creatures. They need our help!!! We are animal rescuers, this is our burden and our blessing!
