Being an all volunteer run organization, we sometimes wonder how the ends will be met, if all the dogs will be placed, and if we'll have enough volunteers to make our adoption events, fundraisers, and get togethers staffed/successful. But then we remember that New Leash on Life is unlike any other rescue. We are a banded group of people who love and care for our animals. When people need encouragement, or help or a dog transported from one event to another, our community steps up and helps out.
We are so grateful and thankful to everyone that is a part of New Leash on Life.
One of the many great things about New Leash is our community comprised of volunteers, foster homes and adopters. We love when we see families come full circle and come back to New Leash to add additions to their families or to foster. We really do have the best community.

All of our dogs come from rough backgrounds and we never know how close they are to being euthanized until our intake directors arrived a few Saturday's ago. Our intake directors arrived Saturday to begin the long (usually 5 or more hour) process that it takes to pick the dogs that come into the NLOL family. Little did they know that as they were walking into the shelter, one little pooch was being walked to the euth room. One of the workers stopped and redirected the little sweetheart to our intake directors who immediately fell in love with her shy demeanor.
Adorable, apartment sized Noca had no idea that her life was about to change big time. She was pretty reserved and withdrawn while in her crate at ACC. The intake directors took her out and spent time with her, played and just waited for her to open up, and boy, did she! She was one of our most outgoing pups, willing and eager to meet and greet everyone. Noca always made time for a good belly rub and quickly found her way into her forever home.
Congratulations Noca and your new family. We loved every minute you spent with us!
