My story

IMPORTANT: The Nature Network Inc. is a small 501c3 non-profit no-kill organization. Most animals we rescue are abandoned at the pound, who no one wants--seniors and special-needs. 100% of all funds are used for them—extensive veterinary and medical costs, prescription meds, rehab, special foods, supplements, and more.



Below, under our The Nature Network CONTACT INFO you can find a “DONATION” link.



We are deeply grateful for help. To meet us, help us, or if you know people or businesses who would like to, please contact us at:

theanimalsleftbehind@socal.rr.com (Also our PayPal Giving email address for donation and sponsorship).



Mailing: The Nature Network Inc., 3826 Grand View Blvd., #66790, Los Angeles, CA 90066.

We are not like many larger non-profits who use up to 90% of all funds on expensive advertising, enormous salaries, social media, and human expenses.

Our veterinary references are available upon request.



DOTTY is a beautiful, senior, Special Needs Black Labrador Retriever mix who is on the smaller side (36 pounds), with the white wings of a dove on her chest. She has the most soulful and loving personality. She 9-10 years old and was rescued from the pound just hours before she was due to be euthanized. She has one ear permanently up and one down which gives her an irresistibly cute look that will keep you smiling. She has lovely, sleek black fur and is quite a gorgeous girl. Her photos don't do her justice.



Dotty simply ADORES people and she loves giving kisses and cuddling. She likes carrying her soft toys around and is just so grateful to receive attention--she greets everyone smiling and happy, her tail softly wagging.



No dogs, no cats. Dotty does not do well with other dogs, therefore we need to find a home with an experienced dog owner and where Dotty can be the only dog in the family. She would enjoy a yard, but no cats please.



Seeking a home without school-aged children please.

Do get in touch, and you will be won over by how special she is. Dotty is spayed, house trained, and up to date on her vaccinations.

To meet Dotty, please contact: thedogsleftbehind@socal.rr.com (also our Paypal donation email address)

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

After completing an adoption application, speaking by telephone, and coming to see our pet (if qualified), we will visit your home. If qualified, we bring our pet for a two week trial period with an application and contract.

Go meet their pets

Our adoptable pets are boarded at kennels, veterinarians, foster homes and our friends' and family's homes. We sometimes also take part in Best Friends and Animal Planet adoption events. We recommend calling us to discuss your adoption needs. If it sounds like you would be happy and the pet would be happy, we can arrange for everyone to meet.
See our organization's info about our plans to purchase our dream animal sanctuary and humane education center---but not without your help.

More about this rescue

The Nature Network Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit no-kill federal tax exempt organization, publicly supported and existing entirely with the generous help of animal loving people. 100% of all donations are used directly for rescued animals. No expensive advertising, so salaries, no human "expenses".

We rescue mainly special-needs and senior dogs, cats, horses, other domestic pets, birds, and wildlife, mostly on their last day of life from Los Angeles area pounds, and we work with local wildlife rescue organizations to save wildlife and birds (injured or orphaned). We love animals very much, and feel there can never be enough help for all animals in need, or enough loving homes or enough birth control for the domestic ones.

We are currently seeking grants, donors and sponsors to purchase the animal sanctuary and education center we have found for the Nature Network in the Valley area of Los Angeles.

We are preparing to again produce and host a previously award winning television show about the rescue and protection of domestic and wild animals and preservation of natural habitats.

More information to come soon. Our website, www.thenaturenetwork.org is currently under re-design, and will be up and active soon.
