We are excited to introduce you to a sort of “behind the scenes look” into LCR!
Throughout LCR’s journey of saving equines, farm animals and domestic companion animals, the team has learned a lot and are looking forward to sharing this knowledge with you! Upcoming blogs will provide our readers with animal care tips, LCR success stories, and the joys and challenges of rescuing.
Animals come to LCR for a variety of reasons. At times, owners need to surrender their animals because they can no longer care for them due to financial, behavioral or other unanticipated reasons. Some animals come from cruelty situations like hoarding cases, puppy mills and dog fighting rings. We bring in the majority of our animals from high intake shelters. These animals are at risk, due to the volume of animals being surrendered or found stray by those shelters. We primarily work with ACCT Philly, Pennsylvania SPCA and Animal Aid USA.
Some of our current stars:
Pax, a spotted draft horse that is spending a little time off at LCR while Baltimore Police Department determines the future of their mounted patrol unit. Pax came to LCR as an owner surrender in 2017. He has served with the BPD since that time.
Peaches, a potbelly pig who came to LCR in the beginning of COVID from the Pennsylvania SPCA. She gave birth to 10 beautiful babies in May. All have been adopted!
Covid 19 has brought everyone more time at home and with it an increase in animal adoptions. Stay tuned for our next blog to learn how many animals have been adopted out!
