Hi Lisa, this is Hudson Pappas, but my name was Whoda when I lived my foster mom Sandy. I was adopted almost two weeks ago and I know I had two weeks to decide if my new parents were right for me. This is my official notice that I plan to stay. My parents take good care of me and walk me everyday. My big kitty sister and I are playing and having fun and I have neighbors with children and dogs who invite me over for play dates. My parents like music, and I enjoy their choices of blues and jazz. I have a backyard where I run and chase butterflies. My bed is comfy and I am grateful that most of my toys came from Bernie, their previous rescue doggie. I am loved and I am safe. I think I'll stay. Thank you TLR for helping me find my new home.
My mom will send a new picture in a separate email. Hudson. Ps. My mom has seen photos of my brother Whookie and he is safe too. Thank you.
Where do I even start. Lisa has been a crucial member of our team since the beginning. Started out as our staff nursemaid, fostering pregnant mommies and birthing multiple litters of puppies. She quickly evolved into an essential part of the rescue's core. She is involved in various local rescue efforts. Our local expert in tracking, trapping and capturing lost, scared or escaped dogs. A true advocate for local dogs and a true rescue warrior. We would not be where we are without Lisa!!!
Linda adopted her dog Mickey from our rescue many years ago. After learning about our rescue efforts she wanted to help. She is a long time volunteer with The Last Resort. Linda is our fundraising coordinator and works very hard orchestrating fundraising events that enable us to continue saving more lives. Linda loves to create new and different fundraising ideas. She prefers to get hands on with the dogs and loves the events where our adoptable dogs can attend, helping them get the much needed exposure they need to find their forever homes.
The Last Resort Established July 2008
Marissa is A rock star ! Aside from a legal career and a busy mom, Marissa has fostered so many dogs for our rescue.

We are lucky to have her on our team and appreciate ALL that she does for us and the dogs !!
