Love Leo Rescue Los Angeles

LOVE LEO

Love Leo Rescue is a small LA based rescue run by Sasha Rose. Love Leo was created to honor the memory of Leo who was Sasha's first pit bull. Love Leo has a soft spot for animals that have been neglected and abused. Over the past years, Love Leo has rescued hundreds of dogs including: dogs that have been used as bait dogs, dogs that have been starved and on the brink of death, a dog that was dragged behind a car, a dog that was mauled by a family of raccoons and recently a dog that suffered two broken legs as a puppy which resulted in a severe deformity that had to be corrected with a complicated and costly surgery.

LOVE AND LEASHES

Created by the non-profit Friends of L.A. Animal Shelters, L.A. Love & Leashes is located at Westfield Century City in Los Angeles, and started as a way to showcase shelter pets in a more welcoming, serene setting than the typical local shelter offers. The animals are more engaged and less anxious, and potential adopters have an easier time connecting with the individual dogs and cats. The fundamental focus of L.A. Love & Leashes is to help our city shelters save more lives by reaching large numbers of people who might not otherwise visit our shelters, thereby increasing the number of animals adopted.
