Ever since I was a kid I've had a passion for helping animals. I was always looking for ways to feel like I was doing my part to help the cause. Now, I have an amazing outlet to help... Over the past year or so I have been working with a few of my friends & fellow animal lovers to establish our very own non-profit rescue group. We have worked hard to create C.A.R.E. Rescue LA, and we couldn't be more proud!!!
It all started for me when my good friend, and now founder & chairman of C.A.R.E., Kelle King, contacted me to see if I would be willing to foster a dog that was almost out of time at a local shelter. I decided to foster Brody, and I just couldn't get over how cool he was... friendly, loving, ADOPTABLE... and the thought that he may not have had even 24 hours to live if we didn't step in was just heartbreaking. I knew I had to help as many animals like Brody as possible.
This is Brody, my first foster, and one of CARE's first success stories... He is now a spoiled pup in a loving home!
Since we started rescuing a little over a year ago, we have saved the lives of over 30 dogs and cats, by pulling them out of high kill shelters or dangerous situations and placing them in safe, loving homes. It's hard work, but we feel compelled to help these poor animals who are running out of time.
Here in LA, the overpopulation of our high kill shelters is a HUGE problem. Uninformed owners, lack of spay & neuter, a big stray population.. all contribute to the high number of animals killed before they have a chance at life. As a new rescue group, this problem feels really overwhelming to us. We're helping one animal at a time, and though it seems like it's only scratching the surface, it means EVERYTHING to the animals we know we've given a second chance to!
The BEST part of this work? The success stories!!! And we've had so many... Check out some of our success stories HERE.
Being able to see a dog who may have had only hours to live, now thriving in a loving home is probably the best feeling in the world (if you ask me :) ) and it is definitely what keeps us going!
The one thing we know for sure is that we can't do this alone. We're currently trying to expand our network of animal lovers who want to help! We are always looking for fosters (fostering SAVES LIVES!) volunteers, forever homes, and of course, donations.

One of the most important things you can do to help this cause is to become a FOSTER. You are the safe haven for a pet escaping a deadly shelter before they find there forever home. You become the difference between life & death for these animals! Learn more about C.A.R.E.'s foster program HERE
