NEW LEASH ON LIFE RESCUE FOUNDATION
New Leash On Life Rescue Foundation was established in 1997 as a 501 c3 nonprofit with a mission to rescue homeless dogs from City and County shelters, rehabilitate them and re-home them with forever families. Since inception, New Leash On Life has been responsible for spaying and neutering thousands of pets, rescuing and placing over 5,000 dogs, and making a determined effort to educate the community on responsible pet ownership. We have a rich history in the rescue industry and our community providing education and training to adults and children in responsible pet ownership. Since 2002 we’ve operated on a beautiful 13-acre property with a pure focus on our mission to save dogs and help people.
Since 2005 our Lend A Paw program has trained volunteer handler & therapy dog teams to visit facilities and provide Animal Assisted Therapy for individuals experiencing physical, mental, emotional or life challenges in care facilities, schools for children with special needs, child custody court, abused women’s shelters, missions and veteran groups. The teams also participate in our own P.E.T.S. program which hosts field trips at our facility for children from community schools for interaction, education and improved reading skills.
Our support efforts have also extended to Search & Rescue disaster relief missions throughout the nation including Hurricanes Gustov, Katrina, Rita and the wild fires of Southern California.
