I adopted Pumpkin in 6/17. She is a dachsund mix, my 1st smaller dog. She was rescued a week before her delivery of 2 pups (1 live and 1 stillborn). She was such a good Mom that she nursed 5 additional pups plus her own. All were named after various pies. Cuter than cute names and pups. I would love to know who comes up with these names.
Pumpkin (Pie) came into my life when the pups were ready to let her go. She is a complete love, She enjoys chewing nylabones, cuddling in my lap and being cozy under her blanket. Outdoor activities involve chasing chickens, wild rabbits, squirrels and turkeys while on a leash of course.
LGAR has been supportive when I needed advice on anything. Their commitment to these animals for life is true and basic to their philosophy. They have earned my respect and I would encourage people to donate so their work can continue.
I donate as often as I am able. Thanks again LGAR for bring Pumpkin into my life.
LGAR is one of the most committed group of people I've come across. They go above and beyond to help animals who would be overlooked by most people. They take on high medical bills and work tirelessly to make sure these animals get the care needed. Whenever I have a question or concern James and Jody are only a phone call away.
Looking Glass Rescue saved a dog named Sasha who had been returned three times to New York's ACC and failed by another rescue. It was looking very bleak for poor Sasha, but Jody and Looking Glass stepped in and rescued her! They got her some much needed training and she went on to be a loved family member in a good home. This rescue steps up when no one else will. I've donated to them several times and I know that the donation goes exactly where it should - to help the animal get a better, happier life.
I have never felt more passionate about a non-profit organization, and what she has done in a little over a year - save the lives of 400 little beings that are in the worst scenarios - physically and emotionally - and are the most vulnerable to being euthanized - is nothing short of amazing. You see, the ACC won't even let Jody adopt the cute, healthy ones - those go to the "regular" rescues. Jody's "pack," as she calls them, are the raggedy-taggedy crew of dogs/cats no one else will take. She sees potential in these adorable outcasts; she cleans them up and polishes them off (often through involved/complicated medical treatments, emotionally therapy classes, grooming, foster-love/recovery) so they can be adoptable and treated with the respect and love they have always deserved. I adopted Donut, a senior poodle who was dumped at the ACC with a breast tumour hanging out of her body that Jody saved. LGAR spent thousands of dollars on Donut's surgery and aftercare. My husband and I nursed Donut through her Hospice period (she lived 6 more happier months), and it changed our lives. I donate to this rescue and plan to volunteer in the coming months.
We adopted Misty 5 months ago. Looking Glass took great care to make sure she was the right fit for our family. James was so helpful in answering questions and advising us as first-time dog owners. Misty was very nervous at first, but she warmed up just as he said she would. She is a sweet and darling creature and we love her so much. I think our family needed her as much as she needed us!
As a follower of the super urgent dogs at NYC ACC, I have reached out to Looking Glass Animal Rescue many times for help getting a tiny, old dog pulled before it is put down. Jodi has never failed to respond! And time and again, when I look to see which rescue has saved a dog, it is LGAR. They do such amazing work!!
Our family adopted Cookie through Looking Glass Rescue just over a year ago. Cookie was blind and had multiple health issues. If it wasn't for their rescue effort, he never would have received the medical support he needed. Once he came to us, they continued to support Cookie and our family. Despite an initial grime prognosis, he has continued to thrive and brought our family so much happiness and love. We are extremely greatful for the work they do not just us but all the animals and families they bring together.
I volunteer for Lookibg Glass Animal Rescue processing applications and fostering dogs. This agency rescues some dogs that would not otherwise be rescued due to medical condition or age. The stories of new beginnings because of the “pack” are heartwarming.
I freely give my time to help them. I am also an adopter!
An amazing, dedicated group of animal rescuers who care deeply for their animals. There is no group more dedicated with the highest level of integrity. Cannot recommend this group higher. Amazing people.
Me & my husband have been involved with LGAR for over a year and a half and the folks at this rescue are the most committed people we've ever known! It's truly about the animals and what's best for their well being that is at the heart of what they do. If you are thinking about supporting or becoming actively involved with a rescue organization you couldn't pick a better one than LGAR!
I came involved with Looking Glass Animal Rescue almost two years ago when they were the only rescue able to pull a dog that I wanted to foster. Since then I have also fostered and adopted other animals thru LGAR and continue to be part of their community. I admire the work that they do and the level of compassion and integrity they exhibited while doing this very difficult and rewarding work of animal rescue.
