The Downtown Dog Rescue (DDR) is the only program in California, and possibly the United States, specifically founded to assist homeless dog owners spay/neuter, vaccinate, license their dogs, as well as offer a variety of services including crisis care for the life of the dog. Each year Downtown Dog Rescue assists in rescuing over 300 dogs, mostly American Pit bull Terriers and other Power Breeds that often die in the shelters mostly due to unresolved behavioral issues. Each dog we rescue is socialized with other dogs, evaluated for aggression, sterilized, vaccinated and micro-chipped before the dog is adopted out.
We administer innovative programs in various communities in Los Angeles to promote responsible pet ownership, empower individuals to become pet welfare advocates and provide opportunities for compassionate dog lovers (friends, volunteers, and donors) to make a difference in the lives of people and downtown dogs.
