About Our Rescue Group:

*Please note: LEASH Animal Rescue is not a pick up service, and at this time, can not accept animals from the public. If you have found and caught a stray animal, we may be able to help locate his/her family and/or re-home him/her when all efforts to reunite him/her with their owner have failed. If you have found a stray animal, but are unable to catch him/her, please contact your local Animal Control for further assistance.*

LEASH Animal Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit animal rescue organization based in the Los Angeles area of Southern California.

Our rescue follows the no-kill policy and is operated solely by volunteers with an emphasis on foster homes, until we are able to have a physical rescue facility.

Our mission is to help as many needy animals as we can with the limited resources we have. We focus mainly on the sick, injured, disabled, and what some people might consider to be "unadoptable" animals, who are at most risk of being euthanized (killed) at our animal local shelters. We are an all-breed rescue, but have soft spot in our hearts for the "bully breed" dogs, who are also known as American Pit Bull Terriers and American Staffordshire Terriers. These two breeds are very misunderstood and over the years, have been given a bad reputation due to false information given by the media. "Pit Bulls" and "Staffies" make wonderful family pets, and are very smart and loyal.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
