Help Our Cause

Your support and contributions will enable us to help more abused dogs like Albert that came to Life commitment after having chemical burns.  Sadly Albert died but not for the want of trying whatever it cost we wanted to give this beautiful boy a life of love and care.  Sadly despite being under the care of Saint Leonard's Albert could not be saved.

ABOUT US:

WELCOME TO LIFE COMMITMENT DOG RESCUE.  RUSS AND TRACY  WHO RUN LCDR A NON PROFIT SELF FUNDED RESCUE BASED IN DERBY. OUR AIM  IS TO SAVE AS MANY UNWANTED AND ABUSED DOGS AS WE POSSIBLY CAN. OUR  PASSION FOR RESCUE STARTED MANY YEARS AGO AFTER A TRIP TO A RESCUE FOR A PUP!

 MY FIRST POUND BABY WAS MY BOY DEXTER WHILST I WAS AT THE RESCUE CENTRE CHOOSING OUR NEW FAMILY MEMBER.  THE DREADED VAN ARRIVED!

DID I REALLY LIVE IN A BUBBLE WAS IGNORANCE EASIER?  AS THEY WERE LOADING THE VAN WITH MY NEW PUPPY IN MY ARMS I LOOKED AT THE SAD EMACIATED STREET DOG WITH A FLEA ALLERGY AND A MATTTED COAT,  HIS EYES WERE PLEADING FOR HELP.

AND SO ON THE WAY HOME WITH A GERMAN SHEPHERD AT THE SIDE OF ME WONDERING HOW I COULD TALK MY WAY OUT OF THIS ONE.  MY BOY LIVED WITH ME FOR THIRTEEN AMAZING YEAR.  AND SO THE RESCUE BUG REMAINED.

THE BUG THAT DOESN'T LET YOU SLEEP OR SAY NO!  THE LADIES WORDS REMAINED IN MY HEAD! "GOD BLESS YOU THE PUPS ALWAYS FIND HOMES THE OLDER DOGS GET PUT TOO SLEEP!  AND SO OUR RESCUE STARTED.  WE HAVE FOUR OF OUR OWN DOGS ALL RESCUE DOGS.

image35

OUR GOAL IN RESCUE!

OUR GOAL IS TOO SAVE AS MANY DOGS THAT HAVE BEEN LET DOWN IN THE PAST.  WE TAKE IN ABANDONED AND ABUSED DOGS WE WORK ALONGSIDE ANIMAL WELFARE.  THE DOGS WE TAKE INTO OUR CARE ARE TAKEN INTO FOSTER HOMES FULLY ASSESSED VACS NEUTERED CHIPPED FLEAD AND WORMED.  WHILST THEY ARE IN FOSTER THEY ARE TREATED AS FAMILY MEMBERS.  THE MAJORITY OF THE DOGS COME INTO OUR OWN HOME WHERE OUR OWN DOGS TEACH THEM HOW TO BE A DOG! HOW TOO PLAY AND OUR DOGS ARE A HUGE ASSETT TO OUR RESCUE BABIES.  WE ALSO USE FOSTER CARERS AND WE VALUE OUR FOSTERERS. FOSTERING REALLY DOES SAVE LIVES.
