About Our Rescue Group:S.T.A.R.T. (A 501c3 non-profit) was formed in May 2011 by Steve Spiro, Suzanna Urszuly, Rene Ruston and Adam Tarshsis.
We began raising money and transporting dogs from high kill shelters here in California and sending them via our van or plane to Oregon, Washington (WA) and Canada where they go to reputable no kill shelters or foster homes.
To date we have transported over 900 doomed death row dogs who are placed into loving homes. Our reputation is growing as is our demand from out of state groups in the north west who know how bad the animal situation in LA is and want to get involved and receive our dogs/cats.
We have also started a second division of our group which is SPAY - NEUTER: this is where we believe the real animal control problem lies. over 7,000,000 unwanted animals are killed each year in the US because of breeding and unfixed pets. We are planning to raise money to fund low income families to fix their dogs and have had several meeting with city and county shelters to help fund a spay/neuter program. We have already set up our first program where we will fund 50 cats to be spay/neutered in Kern County.
