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.

Amazing Simba the Survivor is Sponsorship Only.

SIMBA was found under a building at UCLA with a broken pelvis and useless tail, starving and dehydrating to death. A kind student left him water and food and contacted us to take him in and try to save him. He was very fearful and scared and if you tried to reach him he would drag himself away.

With a Hav-A-Heart humane trap we were able to catch him with food and water and immediately take him to our veterinarian. Xrays showed his broken pelvis has begun to knit together already. Our vet said surgery could be fatal or unhelpful at best. His tail appeared lifeless and since blood circulation had possibly begun to slow down, there was the possibility of amputation later on, but thankfully his tail is still on and has slight movement.

Unfortunately Simba also has damage to his bladder and he will most likely be permanently incontinent. Simba is a master alpha cat and even though he can barely get around and has just started to walk a bit, he seriously bullies the other cats and dogs and is sometimes scary!

Simba is sponsorship only at this time, and he will need continued monitoring by the vet and possible follow-up procedures. If you would like to help out with Simba's medical care, our Paypal donation/sponsorship address is: theanimalsleftbehind@socal.rr.com Thank you.

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.
