Last Chance Animal Rescue, Inc. (LCAR) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to end the pet overpopulation crisis in the Washington, DC, Maryland and Virginia area. We provide high-volume low-cost spay/neuter services to the public, rescue and relief services for pets in disaster-affected areas, and help homeless pets find permanent, loving homes. Since we began in 1999, LCAR has rescued and rehomed over 100,000 homeless pets to adoptive families in our area. We rescue animals from high-kill shelters in a five-state area and partner with 25 PetSmarts in the Washington/Baltimore area to adopt animals out through their multi-day adoption center program. We also operate an affiliated animal hospital, the Waldorf Well Pet Clinic. It provides full-service veterinary care to animal patients throughout our area as well as extensive medical care for each pet we rescue, including spay/neuter services, vaccinations appropriate to age and weight, and any other medical care and attention each pet needs to give it the very best chance at having a long and happy life in its new home. Last Chance Animal Rescue envisions a world where no adoptable animal is euthanized in a shelter simply because it has no home.

Be warned- many of the "adopter" reviews on here are actually LCAR employees being paid on the clock to write them. I worked at this rescue and have seen from the inside what it's all about- money. The animals are kept in poor conditions and the health verification that is signed by a vet is false- those animals are not examined before they are adopted.

I no longer volunteer for Last Chance Animal Rescue once I found out that they routinely send cats to the shelter to be euthanized even though they say they are a no kill animal rescue. I discovered that in 2012 they sent over 700 cats to Tri County animal shelter to be killed. I did not want to believe what I was told by a Last Chance employee so I contacted the shelter and asked for and received copies from the shelter showing last Chance's request to euthanize the cats. I believe these are deceptive practices since they call themselves no kill.
II adopted my kitty Jameson from LCAR about two weeks ago, he is just a blast! He came fully vetted and neutered. When we took Jameson to the Vet they alerted me that he has cocciddia, something that was common in the shelter environment. I contacted LCAR and they offered me to bring my kitty to their clinic to be checked by their vet and they would treat him totally FREE. That was such a relief! Last Chance is a great organization and I will be getting a new sibling for little Jameson soon!
Last Chance Animal Rescue is an amazing non- profit organization that strives to help as many animals as they can. I got my kitty from LCAR about a year ago and they were as helpful as could be. I called with many questions about my new member of the family and they were quick to try and help me with whatever I needed. I would recommend anyone to adopt from Last Chance to find their furrever friend.
We adopted a dog and two kittens from last chance, they were nothing but professional. They were there for us all through the adoption process. They truly care about each and every animal they rescue. The staff is fantastic, they go above and beyond for all of their clients. I would recommend this rescue to anyone looking to find the perfect pet !!

Last Chance Animal Rescue is an amazing organization. They are truly all about the animals. I have never had a negative experience with them. I have many friends and family members who have adopted from them, and have been very satisfied with the process from start to finish! Last Chance is all about finding animals from high kill shelters who are about to be euthanized, new homes! I love having an organization like this one in my own community. Please consider Last Chance Animal Rescue if you are considering adopting a cat/dog in your future. You will not be disappointed!
My family recently adopted a little kitten from Last Chance Animal Rescue. The adoption process was smooth and the volunteer who helped us was very knowledgeable. We love her to pieces and now couldn't imagine life without her. If your looking for a kitten or even an adult cat I strongly recommend adopting through this organization.

Last Chance Animal Rescue is a top notch organization. We adopted a chocolate lab/Doberman puppy from them a year ago, and he's been such a great addition to our family. The staff at LCR is caring, helpful, and professional. The adoption process was efficient and well-organized. We were very impressed with the director, Cynthia Sharpley, as she walked us through the process and answered our many hundreds of questions. We highly recommend them to anyone wanting to adopt a cat or dog. Last Chance Rescue is the place to adopt from!
Great organization, great pups, great experience! I adopted a healthy, loving Schnauzer mix from Last Chance earlier this year. At first I was nervous to adopt, but Last Chance treated us like family and put all of my concerns to rest with their personal attention, care and affordable vet services. When I got my puppy, she was happy, social and already had learned a few basic commands from her Last Chance foster home. Definitely going back here when I'm ready to make the next addition to my family!
Animal Rescue is an outstanding rescue group. As a Last Chance volunteer for 6 years, I never cease to be amazed at the outstanding work they do. Saving the lives of up to 10,000 animals per year is incredible. Not only does LCAR save lives, they also offer spay neuter clinics at a very low cost in locations outside the main rescue. They reach out and help with natural disasters like Katrina and 2012 East Coast hurricane by providing manpower and supplies. Two of my cats are Last Chance cats and they are the best cats ever. My other cat is a patient at the LCAR animal hospital where he receives first class treatment and care. The LCAR staff is professional and always willing to assist whether it is a volunteer question, an adopter question, or pet hospital question. My recommendation for 5 stars is confirmed. I would give them thousands if I could.
