We have an ANIMAL TRANSPORT VEHICLE to help people transport their animals to be spayed/neutered, emergency veterinarian care, and during natural disasters, as well as to transport our rescue animals to adoption events.


Our TNR+ Program helps feral cats (trap-neuter-return without a negative impact on wildlife).


The NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH FOR ANIMALS Program can be done anywhere.

This program was created as part of our campaign to clean our comunity of free-roaming dogs and other animals, educate the citizens about the importance of the new Los Angeles animal laws, and assist them in abiding those laws.


With our ANIMAL CRIME WATCH Program we investigate animal neglect and cruelty of animals, and have a report form that people can easily print out from the web site.


We do EDUCATION via phone consultations, web site information, through the media, and teaching local classes and at conferences. We teach TNR+, Animal Crime Watch, Humane Wildlife Solutions, etc.


Neighborhood Watch For Animals; Humane Wildlife Solutions; and a Spay/Neuter Program that will be in place in 2016.





We have Campaigns to raise awareness of the dangers of fireworks, and the local laws pertaining to illegal dog breeding, and the importance of getting a breeder's license (if they can't be talked out of it), and abiding by County animal and fireworks laws.


ZERO FIREWORKS CAMPAIGN is trying to stop the sale and use of fireworks in Los Angeles County, and starting with all of Antelope Valley. We also make sure that all breeders have a license, NO ILLEGAL DOG BREEDING.


Our facility is also a SANCTUARY for unwanted and homeless domestic, farm and exotic animals that cannot be placed elsewhere. Wild animals are helped through referrals to other facilities and education.


We hope to raise the funds to help all of these animals.



Poem

FOR SALE - TO A GOOD HOME

(Author Unknown)


I was born in the Summer a few years ago.

Quite why I was born, I'll never know.

Some folks who owned my mother, decided to breed.

No reason I know of except for their greed;

I know I was hungry, I know I was cold;

They sold me quite early at just five weeks old.


My number one owners seemed friendly at first,

And life was quite good till my bubble burst;

They started to argue, their marriage split up;

And in the Ad:  "For Sale - 4 months old pup."


Some folks arrived, the next ones in line.

They treated me kind and life was just fine.

But Master dropped dead, and she couldn't cope.

So she sold me again (I'll soon give up hope).


I then had a new home right up in the sky;

We went up in the lift fourteen floors high!

The new folks were kind but they left me all day;

I was bursting to wee and had nowhere to play.

It was boredom, I think, when I chewed up the chair;

They agreed I should go as it just wasn't fair.


The next home was good and I thought "This is it"!

They started to show and I won....well, a bit.

Then somebody told them that I had no bone.

And in went the Ad:  "For Sale...to a good home."


The next lot were dreadful, they wanted a guard;

But I didn't know how, although I tried hard.

One night they got burgled and I didn't bark;

Tied up in that shed and alone in the dark.

For four months I lay in that cold and dark shed;

With only an old paper sack for a bed.

A small dish of water all slimy and green;

The state I was in, well, it had to be seen!

I longed for destruction, and an end to the pain;

But some new people came and I went off again.


Well now I'm with a Rescue and this home is good;

There's walks in the country and lots of good food;

There's kisses and cuddles to great me each day;

But I dread the time they will send me away.

But for now here I stand, skin and bone on all four;

PLEASE......don't let "ME" happen to any of yours.
