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.



SAMSON NEEDED URGENT LIFE-SAVING SPECIALIZED HERNIA CARE AND HOSPITALIZATION FOR AN EQUINE BLOAT AND TORTION INVOLVING HIS SECUM. WE ARE SEEKING SPONSORS FOR THE SPECIAL-NEEDS HORSES OF YOUR CHOICE WHICH WE HAVE RESCUED WHO HAVE BEEN UNRIDEABLE OR UNADOPTABLE LIKE SAMSON. SPONSORSHIP INCLUDES CORRESPONDENCE AND UPDATES. Please contact us for more details about our sponsorship/adoption program.



SAMSON a handsome purebred Belgian Draft Horse who was rescued on his last day from a Los Angeles County animal shelter, was confiscated by Animal Control, together with his herd buddies, who were all victims of terrible starvation and neglect. Additionally Samson was clearly abused and mistreated, evident in his shyness.



Samson, a kind and gentle giant, came a long way compared to his emaciated shelter intake photo. Samson has had multiple hospital stays and expensive emergency vet calls for sand colic (which resulted in nefro-splenic displacement/entrapment). He recovered well but it was a very close call which had resulted from eating dirt and sand when he was starving to death. However the resulting hernia on his belly then began to threaten his life and needed ongoing constant veterinary care and bandaging, especially for the abscess next to his hernia which would not heal for a long time.



We are deeply grateful for any donations to help us pay for Samson's overwhelming unpaid vet care bills which are over $15,000. We can provide names and bills of the veterinary practices to which we currently owe bills for weekly care.



If you know of any individuals or businesses who love animals and horses, and would appreciate good tax deductions, please tell them about Samson's plight. He required continued care and needed ongoing several times a month veterinary bandaging and multiple hospitalizations.



We would be very grateful for donations/sponsorship to help with Samson's bills for veterinary care. We deeply appreciate any help you can give us with Samson.



To help with Samson's bills, please contact: theanimalsleftbehind@socal.rr.com (also our Paypal donation/sponsorship 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.
