Lighthouse Animal Rescue is a no kill animal rescue and adoption
center. I acquire these precious animals through owner give ups,
kill shelters, off the street, puppy mills, and many other sources.
Many have been horribly abused, neglected, starved, beaten,
burned, etc. Others have lived in wonderful homes and, through no
fault of their own, find themselves homeless.
Lighthouse works to STOP PUPPY MILLS! Pet store puppies
come from "puppy mills." For more information on these torture
chambers, see IMOM - Voices for the Voiceless,
Puppy Mill, Puppy Mills and Animal Shelters and What Is a Puppy
All of the animals who come through the
Lighthouse are examined by a vet.
They are brought up to date on all their shots.
They are heartworm tested.
They are treated for fleas and ticks.
They are treated for intestinal parasites.
If they are sick, their ailments are treated
by a vet and nursed back to health.
If they are old enough they are spayed or neutered.
Most important of all, they are shown Love.
With Love they can begin to trust humans again and start to feel
secure enough to want a human of their own.
Lighthouse is a "not for profit" shelter. The animals are given
veterinarian attention and, to pay for this, we charge an adoption fee.
If you took your dog to the vet for the following procedures
Spay or neuter
Flea and tick treatment
it would cost anywhere from \\$150.00 to $300.00, possibly more.
Some animals come to the Lighthouse with ear mites, mange, eye or
ear infections, etc. All of these ailments are treated by a vet.
Through Lighthouse Animal Rescue, you can adopt a "best friend" who
has already had all of the procedures above, for a fee of \\$100.00. This money goes to pay for:
flea and tick control
and the many other things that are needed to house and care for
these precious animals. Without the adoption fee, Lighthouse would
not be able to continue rescuing these wonderful babies.
We are always in need of volunteers to come out and help with
exercise, bathing, socializing, and most important of all.......
Love and Compassion.
To adopt an animal from Lighthouse Animal Rescue, you will be asked
to fill out an adoption application and sign an adoption contract.
You can see these forms at AdoptionApplication
To view the animals that are available for adoption, click on the
animated lighthouse above or on the stories button below. You'll see some of the Lighthouse success
stories there as well.
If you are considering adding a "best friend" to your family, please
don't buy from a pet shop. Pet shops buy their animals from puppy
mills. Puppy mills are horrible places where the animals are never
allowed out of their tiny cages. They are never petted or treated
with any kind of compassion. They are forced to produce litter after
litter and when they can no longer produce, they are inhumanely killed
or dumped at a kill shelter.
