Shelter Intervention Program

$14,450 of $12,000 goal

Raised by 78 people in 38 months

Downtown Dog Rescue’s South LA Shelter Intervention Program has prevented more than 5000 pets from entering the shelter by asking families, contemplating surrendering their pet, one simple question:                 “How can we help you keep your pet?”


By offering services such as: free spay/neuter; medical care; dog and cat food; paying pet deposits; building dog runs; repairing fences; and rehoming pets from one loving home to another, paying for humane euthanasia for terminally ill senior pets, dog training, and paying redemption fees, we have made a significant impact on reducing the number of pets entering the South LA Shelter.


For many families,living in one of the poorest communities in Los Angeles, DDR is offering a “hand up” approach not a “hand out”. We are helping forever change the family tree when it comes to committing to a pet.



With your donation, you are supporting keeping pets in their first home forever home. If we can get 1000 supporters like you, to donate at least $12, we reach our goal and will increase our monthly budget by $1000  throughout 2016. 

$10 pays for a vaccine

$20 pays for a dog license
$50 pays for a medical exam and medication
$100 pays a spay/neuter surgery+vaccine+microchip
$200 pays for a pet deposit or a dog run
$500 pays for a medical crisis: parvo or broken bone

Our average case costs us $65 to prevent a pet from entering the South LA shelter.

Can you help us keep more pets out of the high intake South LA Shelter by making your donation today?

We did it! We surpassed our fundraising goal on Giving Tuesday. Thanks to all of you who donated to support our work. We want to give a special thank you to Cini Robb who generously donated $10,000. A simply AMAZING donation!!!!!!
In honor of Giving Tuesday, we named this 6 month old former Downey Shelter dog "Tuesday". She is typical of the type of dog that we look for when selecting shelter dogs to join our kennel program. She has a treatable medical condition that made her unadoptable to public but a perfect match for DDR. Look for more information on how to adopt Tuesday on our site soon !
Welcome "Tuesday" to DDR!
