ANIMAL ABUSE....AND GETS A BIG SURPRISE IN RETURN!
In late December LCR was called in by ACCT in Philadelphia to help with a severely injured potbelly pig. It's likely that someone unsuccessfully tried to use her for Christmas dinner by decapitating her. We brought her into LCR and began treating her substantial injuries. Despite the enormous pain she was in, CheeseDoodle, was a sweet, trusting (still!), house-trained sweetheart who quickly became a kennel favorite with our volunteers and the media:
Then on January 24th, CheeseDoodle gave staff and volunteers a huge (and surprise!) thank you by delivering 4 healthy, adorable piglets! We promptly named CheeseDoodle's new "snack pack" Trisket, Chip, Pringle and Chex! Mother and babies are all doing well!

LCR IS EXPANDING...AND YOU CAN BE PART OF THE PLAN!
With the growing need for our life-saving services, education seminars and clinics, LCR has used up every inch of space to help rescue, rehabilitate and rehome abused and neglected animals. We're excited to announce that we've received the final go-ahead to begin our 5-Phase Agriculture and Education Center Expansion Project! (Full Business Plan available here).
The expansion includes, but is not limited to, Meet and Greet rooms for potential adopters to get to know their new 'family member' in a comfortable atmosphere, our own Surgical Suite for in-house veterinary care, small animal areas strategically built into the walls, a large covered building for evaluating. training and teaching volunteers about the animals we care for, along with 3 large seminar rooms for all-weather training of dogs, horses, seminars and clinics.
This is a million dollar project that will allow everyone of all ages and abilities to interact and become an integral part of LCR's animal rescue family.
