ABOUT LOVING PET INN ADOPTIONS
Loving Pet Inn Adoptions was organized in 2010 as a not-for-profit 501(c)3 charitable organization. LPIA is an all volunteer based non-profit that receives no funding from the state, county, or city. We operate solely on individual / corporate donations, fund-raising events and awarded grants. 94% of all monies goes towards financial aid for spay/neuter and the care of the animals.
LPIA focuses on providing financial aid for spay neuter & medical needs for pets in our community through its Spay Today Outreach Program (STOP). We are working to eradicate the pet overpopulation problem in our country and reduce the number of animals born by aggressively spaying and neutering owned pets and feral cats. We are foster based and do rescue abandoned and shelter dogs, take care of their veterinary and rehabilitation needs until ready for adoption. We are dedicated to take back any pets who have been adopted from LPIA in the past.

We’d like to share some big news with you! In 2020, we’ll switch gears and shift our focus from adoption to primarily spay and neuter! We’ve sold our kennel facility and will be taking a boots on the ground approach in the community to reduce the number of homeless, unwanted dogs and cats born to irresponsible pet owners. As of 9/30 we have funded 530 spay/neuter surgeries for 2019 (approaching 7,000 since 2011!) with our Spay Today Outreach Program (STOP) and are very proud of the results we have seen at local shelters. STOP offers financial aid for low income families who cannot afford to spay/neuter their pets in an effort to aggressively target the pet overpopulation problem in our area.
We also offer assistance to pet owners who cannot financially handle a medical emergency for their pets but aren’t ready to surrender them to find new homes. We plan to continue this medical fund so long as our funds allow. These cases are often quite expensive and need to be handled immediately so the pets don’t suffer. This year, we had a cat with a severe flea allergy who was suffering with constant itching. We aided a dog with pyometra (infection in the uterus) which would have resulted in a slow, agonizing death had we not stepped in. We helped a kitten with an injured tail that had gotten infected. A dog with a ruptured tumor on his neck would not have had the care he needed without our medical fund.
75 of our adoptable dogs found their furever homes this year. All of our pets are spayed or neutered, fully vaccinated, microchipped, dewormed, etc. before being placed in new homes. We’ve also regularly taken in pets with additional medical needs that must be addressed prior to adoption. 4 of our dogs had to go through expensive heartworm treatment (that monthly preventive is a MUST!) 1 luxating patella surgery for Clyde, 7 dentals, one dog needed extensive vet care due to seizures, and we had one pitiful little puppy named Piper that came down with parvo!
We’ve also had our share of adventures! We were contacted about 6 dogs dumped in Denton and we went right out to help them! We also had an escape artist. As a stray, Bennie was being dropped off at our rescue. He managed to escape and was on the run for three weeks! We posted all over social media, sent out search parties, and set up traps with food, but he managed to be a step ahead of us every time. Finally, a neighbor was able to catch him after he was found hanging with their pack of friendly dogs!
We need our generous supporters now more than ever as we embark on a new chapter of LPIA and hope you’ll stand by us as we try to make 2020 our best year yet! We can’t wait to share our biggest successes with you next year as we fight to reduce the number of pets killed in shelters and make pet overpopulation a thing of the past!
