Downtown Dog Rescue is a 501C3 nonprofit charity organization that rescues shelter dogs from the communities that we serve.
On July 5, 2020, DDR opened our first Pet Support Space office in South Los Angeles. This program provides ongoing services, not limited to veterinary care, for low income families who live in the South East and South Central areas of Los Angeles.
The South LA Shelter Intervention program, a collaboration with LA Animal Services, operated out of the South LA Shelter from April 2013-April 2020, providing services for more than 15,000 family pets.
In July 2016, partnering with Inner City Law Center and LA Animal Services, DDR opened the first pet service center for the Skid Row community. The Pet Resource Center (PRC) has served more than 3500 cats and dogs that live with unhoused people, people living in transitional living such as shelters, SROs, and permanent supportive housing in the downtown Los Angeles area. DDR counselors and volunteers meet with pet participants once a month at the corner of Industrial and Central Ave. See our calendar for dates.
Since 2006, partnering with the Southern California Veterinary Association, DDR offers free vaccinations, deworming, microchipping, flea/tick control, and other wellness services for approximately 3000 community pets per year. Visit our calendar for clinic dates.
