Fresno Bully Rescue – If you’re a pit bull lover like me, you’ll certainly take an interest in this fine rescue located in Southern California.
Labs & Buddies – I was fortunate to foster dogs for this rescue located in Los Angeles. Laura is a dedicated rescue owner and works around the clock to help as many dogs as she can. Her rescue focuses on Labs but has many mixes and other breeds as well. She also helps place dogs for the Animal Rescue Team Taiwan.
Smiling Dog Farms –
This is my favorite rescue in America. The work they do is very unique, strenuous, and saintly! Jay and Ricky possess some of the biggest hearts and help dogs no one else want to help. They act similar to a sanctuary; unlike many rescues who hope to adopt out all dogs in their care, Smiling Dog Farms is a place where dogs who don’t fit into society or who aren’t placeable can go to live out their days.
Olympic Animal Sanctuary – Their motto is: “We save dogs you’d rather see dead,” and it is no exaggeration. Similar to Smiling Dog Farms, Olympic Animal Sanctuary takes in the world’s unwanted dogs and lets them be who they are for the rest of their lives. This one is right up the way in Forks, Washington.
Gentle Giants Rescue – A rescue specializing in large breeds, of course! There website will show that they also have many exotic breeds, such as Leonbergers, Ibizan Hounds, Scottish Deerhounds, among others. They also make their own brand of natural dog food, which is high in protein, low in fat, and affordable.
Villalobos Rescue Center – A Southern California pit bull rescue owned by Tia Torres, the lady behind Pitbulls & Parolees.
Best Friends Animal Society – Being one of the biggest and most well-known rescues allows Best Friends to care for rescue animals far beyond the borders of it’s sanctuary. They also were one of the major forces in the no-kill movements of the 90s.
