At Satchel’s Last Resort, we provide lifelong shelter to dogs deemed unadoptable, nurture and train borderline dogs, and offer temporary shelter to adoptable dogs whose owners can no longer care for them.
We believe all dogs are created equal and deserve to live the life of a beloved pet. Each dog that comes to us has its own unique and personal history. We get to know each dog individually – his favorite toy, his favorite game, his favorite foods. The residents (dogs forever with Satchel’s) and guests (adoptable dogs) live in an airy shelter with spacious kennels, go for three romps or walks per day, and even take the occasional car ride to let their fur flap in the wind.
Most important to us, we keep our dogs safe from other residents and from humans who may want to harm them. Behaviorists work with the dogs a few times a week to teach them that they can trust humans and other animals.
We actively seek forever homes tailored to the needs of our adoptable dogs so that they can live the rest of their lives among a family of their own. We believe that by harnessing the unconditional love that the dogs in our sanctuary put forth everyday, the world becomes a brighter place for animals and people.
Each and everyday we try to give a little of their love back – back to the dogs and back to our community.
