    by: ztT4MP82921949

    I have not visited here, so my evaluation may not be accurate, but anyone who has the determination to rescue horses with the amount of time and money that is need to do that, is great in my eyes. Now they want to help small animals, too! This is fantastic. I hear we need to watch Katie Couric news tonight in regard to horse rescue.

  • 9. What a Nice Place

    by: ztT4MP38814761

    I went there for an event that they had a year ago. The anamals were so well kept and they provided many things for kids to do at this event. They even made it available if you wanted, to come a volenteer your self. I loved it and the staff were so nice.

    Pros

    Set up so you too can help the animals

    Cons

    isnt any

  • 10. Last Chance Ranch is an awesome place!

    by: eleanorford

    Last Chance Ranch is a great place. We need more rescues like LCR. I adopted a dog from LCR.(Mitchell) He is the sweetest dog and i am so glad i did. Thank you LCR for saving him!

    Pros

    The people there are so nice!

    Cons

    Can't think of anything!

  • 11. What an amazing place

    by: KristenS

    Not only does LCR help animals of all shapes, sizes and conditions in need, they are tireless in their efforts to educate people to be more aware and responsible owners.

    Pros

    Emphasis on rehabilitation of "lost causes" and education to people

    Cons

    They need more space to help even more animals!

  • 12. Last chance Ranch helps all animals

    by: mikepatte

    Even though I haven't had the opportunity to visit there, they were very helpful to me when I rescued a baby Robin two springs ago when I was out on disability and couldn't drive. I had no idea what to do with this little creature which would die soon without care. Everyone I called was sympathetic but wanted me to bring the baby to them. I explained that I couldn't drive. A lady at last chance met my wife half way in the evening on her own time. She took the little bird, and promised it would be cared for. I had all ready started to get attached to it, because it really seemed to perk up when I had him all nestled up in a towel and heating pad, plus I even was able to feed him so she said I could call any time I want to check. I got a real good feeling about the Ranch in that short time.

    Pros

    helpful

  • 14. Wonderful and Caring Facility

    by: DLW

    The love of every animal at Last Chance Ranch is reflected in the eyes of the volunteers and staff who tirelessly meet all the daily chores and care required for healthy and happy animals.

    Pros

    The volunteers work extremely hard to provide the very best for the animals they care for.

    Cons

    Sometimes their website is not updated.

  • 15. yay!

    by: ztT4MP14537476

    Pros

    beautiful views

  • 16. Lori is an Angel

    by: korr0815

    I adopted a dog from LCR and wound up a volunteer. Lori is an amazing human being who is literally giving everything she has to benefit animals. She attracts people to her like moths to a flame with her kindness and generosity. My dog is lucky that Lori plucked her from the city pound and gave her a chance to find a good home. I am sure my poor puppy would have died in the city if Lori had not picked her out and brought her to the ranch. If everyone had 1/100 of the compassion that Lori has, we would have a much better world to live in.

    Pros

    Wonderful people

    Cons

    far away

  • 17. First time

    by: proudfather19

    It was my first time getting a pet on my own. I was undecided of where to get it but then i stumbled upon this place while searching the internet. I was a bit confused with the website because it seemed they were mostly a horse rescue place but i found other pets. \r\n\r\nI got my border collie from there, the staff (and family members) were very informative and knowledgable about my puppy. They gave me some food and the medicine she was on. They told me to call back and let them know how she was doing. Also, to call if we had any questions. The next day, i recieved an email to see how my first night was with my new best friend! Thats great customer service.\r\n\r\nIf your looking to rescue an animal, Look here first!

    Pros

    Friendly and informative staff.

    Cons

    a little hard to find

  • 23. My time as a volunteer

    by: MikeM345

    My time at the ranch was spent fixing fence,installing a floor in the volunteer office and painting. While I did not actually work with the animals I did see the volunteer work in action. I was amazed to see the teamwork and effort being offered by these individuals. The care given to the animals was second to none. The unselfishness shown by these individuals towards the health and safety of the animals truely exceeded my thoughts. The best to each of you for all of your efforts. Your rewards and sacrifices are achieved with the care you give and the placement of the animals.

    Pros

    Lots of space. Dedicated towards their cause

    Cons

    None that I can think of

  • 25. they are GREAT!

    by: kittendes

    We have adopted twice from them & they are awesome. We adopted Sylvester as a kitten and we just adopted a Pomeranian, Leo, from them about 6 months ago. They are extremely knowledgeable, friendly and truly GOOD people to work with!

  • 26. Such love and caring

    by: slcrn85

    I have always wanted to volunteer for a shelter/rescue and until we adopted Layla (Pembroke Welsh Corgi) from LCR I wasn't sure where I could go to help. That all changed then and there. There is such love toward all the great animals there. All the people are so caring and willing to share their knowledge. I help with both the dogs and the horses, it's so rewarding!!! We then adopted Willow (bordercollie mix) in October from LCR. Both are great dogs and the adoption process was thorough and complete.

    Pros

    Providing homes for wonderful (unwanted) animals.

    Cons

    Need more volunteers to help with care so we can help more animals.

  • 27. LCR

    Pros

    They really care about the animals

    Cons

    I wish they would communicate with the public more

  • 28. Great Rescue

    by: Tahoe1

    What a great rescue with great plans for the future. With support from everyone we can save many more animals. There is no other place I would rather volunteer for.

    Pros

    Everyone works together, a lot of animals have been saved.

    Cons

    Has open space, but needs the funds to expand efforts.

  • 32. The Kennel

    by: blumatula

    I volunteer with the dogs every Sunday evening. Lori B tries to bring the most adoptable dogs from Philadelphia Animal Control. EVERY dog I have worked with would make the sweetest,most adoreable pet. It is hard not to take them home with me!!! It is great that we can offer a transition to their forever home. They are finishing the outside runs with dontations. \r\nWhat a great place to help save these little lives!

    Pros

    The inside of the Kennel is complete. The outside is almost finished

    Cons

    The outside runs are being finished. We need donations!

  • 33. Kudos to Last Chance Ranch

    by: dstranz3

    I drove almost two hours to pick up my new forever friend, Tinkie the kitten. They checked not only my veterinary reference, but personal as well. I think this is wonderful since so many pets are neglected. What better way to confirm that these animals are going to good homes! This kitten is in good health and the sweetest thing ever!! Thanks to all the volunteers who work here.

    Pros

    very friendly, knowledgeable, and caring

    Cons

    can't think of ANY!

  • 37. Wonderful Home

    by: renagirl

    Last Chance Ranch is an absolutely amazing equine rescue. They have saved many many horses dogs and even farm animals when necessary. It is an awesome place to be associated with and could really use the makeover in order to house more horses. With the recent discussion in South Dakota about building a horse slaughterhouse we really need more places like Last Chance Ranch to rehab horses.

    Pros

    staff,know-how, rescue

    Cons

    none

  • 38. LCR -helping horses , etc!

    by: Oakiesmom

    I first became aware of Last Chance while looking for another horse. I was on Petfinder and found a beautiful horse that i thought might fit my needs. Downloaded the adoption application , filled it out and mailed it in. Waited anxiously to hear back . When i did, i was disapointed to hear that my first choice had already been placed. But they asked me to come down to look at some of the other horses that were available. I am glad that I did! I took the 2 hr drive and was met by a vounteer and asked a few questions about my riding skills and what i was looking for. Then i was told that Mr. Exquisite Sable might be a good fit for me . We went to see him in his paddock and brought him in for a brushing and a trial ride. I was impressed. He was more than just a pretty face! When it was clear that i was interested in adopting him i spoke with the President of the rescue and we many plans for another visit. I came back again the following weekend and this time brought a friend to also ride him . She also loved him . It was a deal!I was very impressed by their screening process- not only were my vet, farrier and personal references checked but he was not left before someone came and checked out his future home. We love him to death and have turned many people on to this rescue due to him.

    Pros

    helps horses - no matter what their chance of adoption is!

    Cons

    needs more resources to be able to help more.

  • 39. animals best friends

    by: lexy10

    LCR is an amazing place and a lifesaver for all kinds of animals, not just horses. I have adopted 2 horses and kittens last year and they all just fit right into our family. The staff is very concerned with finding the right forever home for each animal, not just placing them anywhere. This takes much time and expense. They are all very helpful and really care about the animals. I try to donate when I can. I wish more people would find it in their hearts to give if they can. This is a much needed place.

    Pros

    always caring and helpful

    Cons

    none

  • 40. The BEST!

    by: pmoran

    Last Chance Ranch is an excellent place to adopt a pet. They never turn away an animal in need and take in even the most hopeless cases. Hardworking volunteers work round the clock to provide only the best care for the animals there. Even after an adoption, they continue to monitor each animal to make sure each is in a caring, positive environment.

    Pros

    caring attitude, expert care

    Cons

    donations welcome!

  • 41. An amazing place!!!1

    by: animallover5

    I love LCR!!!! They take great care of all the animals they rescue and make sure they find great forever homes and if the owner must return them for some reason LCR is there to help them find another home. The people are so nice and willing to help and they also plan fun things to help raise money to make advancements. Everytime I go I have a smile on my face because when I get there to work with the rescued dogs they are so happy just to see people and to be loved and have a nice place to live. LCR provides a great temporary home or if nessacary a forever home to many needy animals. I love volunteering here!!!!!!

    Pros

    animals are loved till they find homes!!!!

    Cons

    kinda muddy

  • 43. LCR made us "Complete"

    by: Sulli

    We adopted Brady from the LCR. My 10 year old son was so happy with our new family member that he said ,"I feel complete!". We appreciate the work that the LCR does to rescue animals so much. It has even inspired my daughter to volunteer to help out with the dogs there.

    Pros

    Caring knowledgable volunteers

    Cons

    Need more money to expand!

  • 45. Great rescue

    by: lamg

    My daughter has volunteer at the ranch and I have gone with her several times. The volunteers are wonderful and the animals are well cared for. They rehabilitate not only horses but dogs and cats and occassionally various other farm animals needing help. We also adopted our last dog from them. I needed a third large breed dog like a hole in my head. But, I don't know how we ever lived without her.

    Pros

    Great people who really care about helping those among us who can't help themselves.

    Cons

    Need more money to continue great work

  • 46. shelters

  • 47. last chance ranch is a wonderful respite for weary animals

    by: kalwine

    In the fall of 2007 I adopted a rescue horse named Tango from the ranch. It has always been a dream of mine to own my own horse. While my husband and I had already purchased a mare for my 8 year old daughter the year before she still wasn't MY horse (although I love her with all my heart). Judy and Lori helped to make my dream come true. They were very patient with helping me to make my decision and to answer all of my questions along the way. Since bringing home Tango they have continued to check in making sure that his adjustment to his new home is going smoothly. Last Chance Ranch is truly a wonderful place for animals of all breeds to find refuge and especially love!

    Pros

    judy and lori are wonderful and care so much about all of the animals that they rescue.

    Cons

    i can't think of any

  • 48. Last Chance Ranch Rocks!

    by: gibs7usa

    I've been volunteering at Last Chance Ranch for over a year and it is the most amazing, fun, and friendly place for people and animals. I have learned so much and recommend it to everyone!!! \r\nTaryn, 17

    Pros

    friendly, welcoming, knowledgeable, accommodating

    Cons

    the chickens!!

  • 49. The best

    by: AMYGRIM

    I pet sit for a horse that came from the Ranch. He is wonderful, the new owners are so happy with him. \r\nAlso, a couple months ago I called the ranch out to look at two drafts I came across in very bad shape. They were out that weekend to make sure everything was ok. They really care about animals and their welfare!

    Pros

    Friendly

    Cons

    Not close enought for me to Volunteer at

  • 50. All I can say is WOW!!!!

    by: Broadwaystage06

    I can reccomend Last Chance ranch as a Volunteer and as someone who has adopted from the rescue. It is a wonderful place with volunteers that are commited to helping better the lives of all animals. Everyone treats the animals at LCR like they are their own pets. Everyone is so friendly, helpful, kind and just plain nice. Most of all- everyone is dedicated and very hard working. It is the most rewarding place I have ever volunteered. As for the dog I came home with- she is a 2 yr. old German Shepard- Sadie, she came in to the rescue looking like she had not eaten for 2 yrs. hair falling off, bleeding from flees- and worst of all she had no clue what affection or treats were. Now it's like we have always had her, she is healthy, fluffy, loves attention and treats- just a wonderful dog and she gets along with our other two dogs great! It's like she has always been a part of our family. Adopting from LCR was one of the best things my family has ever done! Everyone there was so helpful in helping us make the transition from 2-3 dogs and giving information. I highly reccommend this rescue!\r\n\r\n

    Pros

    its just all around amazing!

    Cons

    Could use some extra funds

  • 51. Voluntering

    by: lilburke1234

    I have been volunteering at LCR for over 7 years now and it has been such an experience. I have always loved horses and when I found LCR it was the perfect place. To be able to see these equines come to our facility in such horrible conditions, and then be rehabilited and placed into loving homes is such a rewarding experience. Whether you have horse experience or not, it is such an awsome place to help out.

    Pros

    Watching all different animals getting place in forever homes

    Cons

    Not being able to help all animals in need

  • 52. So Very Rewarding To Volunteer Here

    by: tuckermax

    I have to say nothing besides being with my family has been as rewarding as volunteering at LCR. Words cannot express the happiness you see in small and large animals alike when they are placed in their forever home! The updates we receive back are just heartwarming.\r\nThank you LCR for being their for them.

    Pros

    Very Rewarding

    Cons

    Shame it's not a bigger facility.

  • 53. A little biased

    by: MammaPajama

    I'm a little biased as I volunteer at LCR and "own" this zootoo account. I love working with the animals and seeing the light come back to their sad scared eyes. \r\nWe all give up a part of our lives to do what we do. Our time and energy is spent helping a cause that has no monetary rewards or accolades. It is a special type of person that can get all the reward they need from a contented sigh from a horse or a happy grin from a pupper.\r\nWe would love to welcome you to the LCR family!

    Pros

    Rescues needy animals of all types

    Cons

    need more volunteers to accomplish goals

  • 54. Amazing program
