We could not do this work without the support and collaboration from the shelter and rescues that bring needy dogs to us. They represent the first responders and help us identify dogs that may benefit from the program. We work with many different shelters and rescues and we have reached out to those we know in our area. However, we are interested in connecting with all rescues that may have dogs in need. Please reach out to us if you have dogs with mammary tumors in need of care but using the button “contact us” above. Here are some of the Shelters and Rescues we have received most dogs from:
Finding Shelter is an organization led by Grace Kelly Herbert, has redefined and expanded what "rescue" means. They do not only help homeless or abandoned dogs, but they are proactive and go out to puppy-mills to negotiate the voluntary surrender of older breeding dogs that are no longer productive. Many of these dogs are overbred, live in unacceptable conditions, receive little-to-no medical care, and are put down when they become sick or have served their purpose. We have treated several of the dogs Grace has brought to us and we appreciate her commitment to animal welfare and the work we do.
Brandywine Valley SPCA
Brandywine Valley SPCA is a large shelter with satellite facilities in both Delaware and Pennsylvania that covers a large geographical area. In addition, BVSPCA has established a partnership with a Tangipahoa Animal Shelter in Louisiana. This previously high-kill shelter has sent hundreds of dogs they cannot accommodate up north to BVSPCA where they get care and put up for adoption. They refer dogs with mammary tumors to Lesley’s Place. We are grateful to BVSPCA for working with us and to Dr. Sheri Wood, their Medical Director, for agreeing to serve on our board of directors. We believe that her experience and insight in shelter medicine will be extremely valuable for us and our future efforts.
If you are interested in partnering with Lesley Place, please contact us today.
