About The Last Chance Hotel
The Last Chance Hotel is a dog rescue based in Cornwall.
We do not have our own rescue centre, but use a network of foster homes across the county. We do use some kennel space, but we prefer foster homes as the dog can be assessed in a home environment. Then we can work out the best sort of home that the dog can be matched to.
However, our reach extends well beyond the Cornish border; we are willing to rehome dogs outside of the county, to Devon, Somerset and beyond. All adoptions are followed up by our homecheckers.
We have a team of volunteers (all unpaid) who work tirelessly to place dogs. Please be patient if you do not get an immediate reply from the team, as we are always very busy and most of us have day jobs too!
We are more than Animal Rescuers......
The charity works with social service and police units; alleviating the pressure, resources and finances of local and UK councils. It helps those caught up in domestic violence, providing temporary safe homes to pets and offering a stepping stone to families towards a safer, happier future without fear.
Our support and donations to the elderly, homeless, and those affected by financial hardship or traumatic life changes allow owners to have choices, when perhaps their family and friends are no longer around or cannot help, and enable them to continue to care for their beloved pets in their loneliest hours.
Our charity HUB shop provides a community outreach drop in centre for face to face information, advice and support.
At Last Chance Hotel we are more than Animal Rescuers.
We are social workers.
We are environmentalists.

The Assessment Process
The first step in applying to The Last Chance Hotel is to fill out a Pre-Assessment form. Once we have this information then we will contact you to organise a home check. When you have successfully passed a home check then we will try to match a dog to you - whether you are looking to foster or adopt. If you are interested in a dog that we don't think is suitable, then we will let you know the reasons why. Every dog we advertise will be clearly described as to whether it is available for foster or adoption. Often we send dogs to home as a 'Foster with a view to adopt'.
