15 MORE DAYS UNTIL RACE DAY!

Saturday October 18th is DDR’s BIG DAY, it’s Race for the Rescues Day at the Pasadena Rose bowl.  This event is DDR’s biggest fundraiser and with only 15 days left to raise $30,000, we haven’t hit the 50% mark yet.  Can you help us help dogs like Honey.  We rescued 14 year old Honey from the East Valley Shelter.

What chance would 12 year old Red, a former South LA Shelter dog, have had finding a home had we not rescued him?

Red-12 years

Your support helps us continue to rescue shelter dogs who truly deserve a second chance.  JOIN OUR TEAM and run walk with your dog.  If you can’t make race day, donate $50 and sponsor a DDR volunteer to come out to the race with an adoptable DDR dog.  Every donation helps us get closer to our goal!  We look forward to seeing you and your dog on race day!  http://www.racefortherescues.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.team&teamID=5222

Hamster’s Story…
Hamster was rescued from the West LA shelter where he was originally adopted as a very young 8 week old puppy but returned a couple of months ago at one year old because he was too much dog for the family. He lived with small children, other dogs, even cats and did very well. Like most pit bull mixes, he is energetic and needs to be walked and exercised. He loves other dogs and could go to a dog park everyday, he would love it. He is still growing, weighing about 60lbs now, he knows basic obedience, is house trained, has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations.
Please call Sandy at 818-407-4145 or e-mail Lori@modernica.net to set up an appt to meet Hamster.

MEET 8 OF OUR LOVELIES!

Sasha

Pit Bull Terrier/Staffordshire Bull Terrier Mix
Medium • Young • Female

Sasha is a young Pit bull mixed . She absolutely loves other dogs, and would do best in a home with lots of action, and at least one other dog. She is friendly and outgoing with people, and quickly makes friends on and off leash with every dog that she meets. She is a dog park type dog, one that I would not hesitate in telling an adopter, take her to any dog park, and let her enjoy! She came to us after being rescued by a private rescuer, who asked us for help placing her. She is crate, and leash trained, knows basic commands, and is ready for her forever home. She would make a wonderful family dog, since she is also great with kids. Not sure about kitties, but has shown no interest in harming them, she appears to just want to chase and play with them.



Spayed/Neutered • Up-to-date with routine shots • House trained

Pearl

Pit Bull Terrier
Medium • Young • Female

Pearl is a super friendly young pit bull terrier who gets along with all dogs, every size and age. She is also ok with cats. At only 35lbs, she is a tiny little girl who is leashed trained, crate trained, loves going on car rides and going to the park. This is the type of pit bull that you can take to a dog park, sit at an outdoor cafe, go to Runyon Canyon or Griffith Park with no worries about dog aggression. She is simply wonderful. She is OK with children and everyone she meets. She is more on the […]

Meet
HANDSOME 
from Downtown Dog Rescue

Handsome is a 10 month old Pit bull Terrier + English Bull Dog mix also known as a Bully. He had a young owner who decided that with school and other activities, owning a dog was not something that he could handle. 

Still a puppy, he turned to DDR to help him find Handsome a home. We have been in Handsomes life from the start. 

Our organization paid to vaccinate and neuter him, we spayed his mama dog and Handsome has been coming out to Pit bull School practically as soon as he was weaned. He is leash trained, house trained and loves other dogs. This is a very sweet dog with a gentle temperament. 

We estimate he will weigh about 60lbs at full maturity. He has been microchipped and is current on his vaccinations.



and 



PEGGY 
from The Dawg Squad

Peggy was at the South LA Shelter and a plea went out to rescues to get her….she was terrified at the shelter.   And once we found out that Peggy was missing her left hind paw we jumped in the car and went to get her.

She is all wiggle butt and kisses and loves to play with toys.    A soft bed is an absolute wonder to her….she pounces on them like they are going to disappear.

Peggy gets along with dogs of all shapes and sizes and her tail is always wagging!  We don’t know what happened to her paw but it is an old injury and does not slow her down.

Peggy will light up your life.   Come and meet […]
