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 5,800 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 4,000,000 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 fund 60 dogs to be spay/neutered monthly in Riverside County.

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.
