Loved at Last Dog Rescue is a Vancouver based, non-profit organization which re-homes local dogs and international stray dogs from developing countries to adoptive homes in the local area. Our organization has partnered with compassionate individuals in the Middle East, Bahrain, India, Turkey, Mexico, Vietnam and other countries.



New applications may take longer than usual to receive a response due to a shortage of volunteers available to conduct the first step of the adoption process, the phone interview. 


Please be patient while we try to process applications as soon as we can. 


Priority is being given to dogs that are in foster or arriving soon.


Thank you for understanding. (November 17, 2018)



Please consider applying to foster a dog especially a dog that needs a little bit of extra. 

Without our supporters and adopters, most of these dogs would live short, difficult lives, each new day a challenge to find enough food to stay alive while trying to avoid people intent on torturing or killing them. The lucky ones are rescued, restored to health and rehabilitated by compassionate individuals who then reach out to rescues in Canada for help finding them loving homes.


All of the dogs are treated for any known injuries and illnesses and are micro-chipped and vaccinated. Any dogs eight months of age or older will also have been spayed or neutered (or identified).  Many of them will have a missing limb that had to be amputated to save their lives. When they are ready to travel and a foster or adoptive home has been found for them, they are flown to Vancouver, BC to start their new and much improved lives. Dogs from Mexico might not be micro-chipped but we are able to provide the chip for you to arrange for your vet to insert. 


Unless identified, none of the dogs are in BC and still need to be transported here. We do not have a shelter and so will not bring dogs that do not have an approved home.
