Rescued from being sold on craigslist in NJ in May 2015
Sorry we haven't gotten a chance to give you an update (our hands have been full 😄). We decided to name him Indiana (Indy) like Indiana Jones because of his brave and spunky personality. He has been adjusting SO well. We are constantly impressed with his positive attitude and willingness to learn and explore. He is doing great with treat or toy incentive tricks (sit, lay, etc). Also is perfect with his housebreaking and crate. He seems to really love it. He loves our walks we have been taking and has significantly improved on his leash in just the few days. Him and the cat are learning their boundaries and Indy just can't wait until it is play time. He met the big neighbor dogs and has had fun hanging out and getting to know them. So far so good. We are already so in love with him and his warm, sweet, and friendly personality. This weekend we are bringing him to Ryan's dads house for some 4th of July running around and playing in the puppy kid pool (we'll see if he likes water!). We are working on setting everything up for next weeks shots and our vet is already preparing for his home visit.
I am going to try and attach a few pictures from this week. We cannot thank you enough for bringing this little guy into our lives; we are so in love with him!
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. She opens her own home many weekends to manage and facilitate transports with dogs arriving from other states so that they can meet their new foster and forever homes here in NJ. Marissa Is also our volunteer legal council. Her 2 daughters, rescuers in the making help her with the dogs and rescue projects!! We are lucky to have her on our team and appreciate ALL that she does for us and the dogs !!
Carolyn and Dean Nasson
Long time volunteers for the Last Resort. Carolyn and Dean have helped us save so many lives over the years ! Always ready and willing to sacrifice their weekend to help transport pups far and wide to get to the safety of their new foster and adoptive homes. Or donating an entire Saturday driving to some remote location to do a home visit so that a pup can finally start their happily ever after. They are always willing to help whenever and however they can. You would be hard pressed to find to kinder, more stellar humans !!!
