Love Leo Rescue
, Los Angeles, CA, 90025
ABOUT US Love Leo is a 501(c)3, foster based rescue located in Los Angeles. Many of the dogs we rescue are sick, injured, abandoned and forgotten. We have a soft spot for dogs that need special medical care in order to make it out of the shelter. We know most adopters will not be able to adopt a dog from the shelter that needs a costly orthopedic surgery, or a puppy that is ill with parvo. We believe these dogs deserve a second chance. In addition to our rescue work, we host a free/low cost spay and neuter program an underserved area of LA (South El Monte). We also host clinics in Tijuana Mexico. Rescuing one dog at a time is important and heartwarming work but – the more important thing we can do to make a difference in the pet overpopulation crisis is by providing spay and neuter services to those who need it. In addition to improving the quality of life for these animals and the people that love them, it is also the most effective way to reduce the number of stray and unwanted animals. OUR MISSION LOVE LEO RESCUE IS A NON-PROFIT BASED IN LOS ANGELES FOUNDED BY SASHA ABELSON. We are dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating abused, injured, abandoned and forgotten dogs. We provide medical care, training, and other services to the dogs in our rescue to help prepare them for adoption and forever homes. Many dogs we rescue require complicated surgeries and costly medical care. In addition, we launched a spay and neuter program which provides FREE spay and neuter surgeries to people and their pets living in low income and underserved areas. We are dedicated to helping battle the pet overpopulation problem through rescue and preventative programs. WHO WE ARE Love Leo was founded in honor of Sasha’s pitbull Leo who was rescued from New Jersey. His mother had been the subject of abuse and sadly did not survive. Leo went on to live a charmed life in Vermont and in his later years in Southern California. Leo was one of the lucky ones, he found a forever home. The statistics are grim for pitbulls in the shelter. One study estimated that only 1 in every 600 pitbulls in the shelter find a forever home. In fact – all shelter dogs and cats have the deck stacked against them. Leo’s legacy lives on in every single life that we save. Consider adopting a dog or a cat and giving them a second chance. You would make Leo proud!
