WAys you can help
Our ultimate goal for any of our rescues is to find them a loving caring forever home that accepts them unconditionally. If you are interested in giving your heart to a very special pup the first step is to complete an application. Once your completed application is reviewed by the LPR team, we will call for a phone interview. If you and LPR are in agreement to move forward, and you are local to the pup, we will conduct a meet and greet and home inspection. Then, once the adoption fee is paid, we will deliver your new family member. If you are not local to the dog’s foster but you are the right family for one of these pups, then we will work with a transport team to get him or her to you. We also work with other rescues around the U.S. so we could work with them or a volunteer of LPR to complete the home inspection. We would also Skype or FaceTime with you to see your environment in real time. The only thing that may not be able to occur is the meet and greet with the pup, unless you were willing to come to us.
Our foster homes are where the magic happens. Without individuals willing to open up their hearts and homes the number of pups we can help would be limited to the size of the Pad. We careful match each incoming rescue to the foster situation that best fits their special needs and the types of therapy they may require. If you are interested in joining our list of available foster homes please complete our Foster Application.
Join The Bootie Brigade
The LPR team does not carry the torch of our mission alone. We have passionate, dedicated supporters and fans who are an important part of the Lily’s Pad family. In 2018 they self named themselves the “The Bootie Brigade”. Follow us on our social media pages (links) below to become a part of our little corner of Bulldog Nation.
With special needs and medically fragile pups comes big expenses. New rescues often require spay or neuter, medical tests, physical therapy and in many cases surgery. This is in addition to their day to day needs of food, supplies and toys. We not only accept donations, they are the only way we can continue to save lives. We accept donations via PayPal (button below), through our Facebook page or by mail. If sending by PayPal we request you use Friends and Family so that LPR does not incur a fee.
In addition to our ongoing donation options we run fundraisers multiple times a year. We do auctions, special need fundraisers and swag events. You can also find us at events in the Portland area. Follow us on social media to learn about all these fun ways to support our dogs.
100% of what we raise is used to help and support our pups. LPR has no paid staff and is lead by all volunteers.
Diapers, anti-monkey butt powder, diaper covers and so much more. Our pups have unique needs and just like donations we depend on you to help keep them stocked. We have an Amazon wish list that has our current needs. The list can be found at: https://www.amazon.com/registry/wishlist/36CPLWNSZJSP/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_ep_ws_SWURzbYZV82YS?fbclid=IwAR20GmzFsLlZL-Yh3Ye_vjEpnfC2ZFROOZYuvdJ7aeYd5JUsPPAEeMLjFjE
