Thanks to the wonderful businesses that have donated to the Lake Traverse Animal Rezcue Fall 2015 Fundraiser recently!


How Can I Rescue An Animal?

We always need more foster homes!  LTAR provides the food and any emergency vet care, foster homes keep the animals safe and provide love and attention until the animal can go on a transport to their new rescue group.  Please contact us to find out how to help!  

The Lake Traverse Animal Rezcue does not do adoptions.  We transport animals to our rescue partners for rehoming.
