WHO WE ARE: Leave No Paws Behind is a 501 (c) 3 non profit corporation governed by the laws of the State of California. LNPB is an all breed, all foster based rescue, specializing in rescuing seniors, terminal and end of life animals, and pets with special medical needs from So Ca High Kill shelters. When possible we step up, most times in the "11th" hour when all hope is gone, to help save the lives of those that are in most danger of being left behind to die on a cold shelter floor.
LNPB provides hospice care, comfort, love and a safe haven for the terminally ill and the hard core cases and upon rescue we immediately have all of our animals vetted. LNPB never determines the outcome or diagnosis, and relies on our skilled, trained and excellent DVM's.Those with minor and treatable medical needs and disabilities per diagnosis from the Doctor's are placed in the loving care of fosters until they are adopted. LNPB's more serious medically challenged rescues, such as seniors who may suffer with terminal and/or severe mobility medical conditions as diagnosed by the Doctor's, are placed in loving hospice/long term foster care for as long as needed.
From time to time, and when deemed necessary by our Doctor's diagnosis, we have the sad task of helping our beloved animals cross the rainbow bridge. We are with them, holding and loving them in the end as they peacefully pass quietly in our arms. We do not hesitate to pull the terminally ill or the ones the shelter will inevitably PTS due to sickness and inability to walk as we cannot bear having them die alone, frightened and sadly wondering. We are doing for our four legged friends what they cannot do for themselves because their life matters. We are their voice and we will continue saving lives one paw a time as we make every effort to assure we Leave No Paws Behind. LNPB relies solely on public donations, no amount is to small and all amounts benefit the health and well fare of abused and abandoned animals and are tax deductible.
