Dolce’s Desk: Rescue. Rehome. Respect.
Guest Column Lisa Randle, Luna’s House, Inc.
Luna’s House is a one-of-a-kind animal rescue founded by Nevin and Lisa Randle, a husband and wife team called to action to save and better the lives of companion animals in their community. Named after a very special rabbit, Luna’s House was incorporated in November 2006 and since that time has placed over 2,800 animals into adoptive homes.
There are a number of factors that set Luna’s House apart, one of which is the organization’s work with companion animals of all shapes, sizes, and species. In the past thirteen years, the rescue has taken in and rehomed dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, hamsters, gerbils, rats, mice, degus, hedgehogs, birds, reptiles and even hermit crabs!
Luna’s House is fortunate to have dedicated volunteers with experience in the proper care of a wide array of species. Each Adoption Program is entirely volunteer-run, proving what is possible when folks come together in kindness. Thanks to its volunteers, Luna’s House is able to provide exemplary care to animals, and in turn pass important knowledge on to adopters.
Luna’s House believes strongly that education is a fundamental part of raising awareness and promoting respect for all animals. The organization hosts educational tours of its Animal Care and Education Center for Scout, school, and other community groups. Reading with Animals, an interactive educational program, was introduced in 2019 for children who are too young to volunteer hands-on with animals.
