LOVAR has quite a list of what is needed, some of which you might even have in your garage or closet or use your Amazon Prime to send them a box. Who is LOVAR?

LOVAR is a 501c3 volunteer-driven charity organization rescuing animals of all types, sizes, ages and breeds, 90% being special needs. Since 2014 LOVAR has successfully rescued and adopted animals considered by some to be least adoptable- including dogs that are feral, senior, sick and injured, as well as those with behavior and fear problems, hospice and mothers with litters, as well as cats that are seniors and bonded pairs.
