Jenny Barnes is the founder and visionary behind Their Last Resort Animal Rescue.  Since Jenny was young her passion was to help abused, abandoned, sick and neglected animals and someday open a rescue named  Their Last Resort.  With her determination and compassion for animals, Jenny's dream came true in December 2012.  Then began her mission in S.E. Michigan/Detroit area.  The rescue is run by volunteers with love for animals and has quickly turned into a family affair.  Their Last Resort is a Non-Profit rescue, so we run the organization strictly on donations.  Our goal is to become a 501(C)(3) ( In progress) and to open and maintain a facility to house these animals.  

We have saved many animals by rescuing off the streets in some of the highest crime and drug infested areas in S. E. Michigan and Detroit.  We go at least 4 to 5 X a week and feed animals that are abandoned, if we can not trap them we continue to go to the area where the animal has been seen and feed it till something can be done.  We also have an outreach program where we go into the community, talk to owners about how important it is to spay/neuter and keep animals up on their medical needs.  We offer assistance in helping them to be better pet owners through food, medical needs, if they need housing for their pets and direct them in ways to get low cost medical help.

What a wonderful feeling it is to see a pet that has been missing from their owner that which found and reconnected with their family.  To give people the option to have a safe place  to surrender their animal, that can be placed up for adoption, instead of being euthanized or put in over crowded kennels alone.

Each animal we take in before they are placed up for adoption will be updated on shots, spayed/neutered, de-wormed, heartworm tested if old enough, and Micro-chipped.  We want each one of our "​ FUR FRIENDS" to have the "PURRRFECT HOME" and health when they leave.
