Our Mission:

Our primary goal is to remove dogs at risk of euthanasia from the overcrowded Los Angeles shelter system. We then foster them until permanent homes are found through our adoption program. We provide our dogs with shelter, proper veterinary care and any necessary rehabilitation. We rescue all breeds of dogs and they come to us from a variety of different sources. Most are rescued from our city and county shelters, others are strays, neglected, owner surrendered or abandoned due to their owners various financial situations. We believe in the spay and neuter of all animals, regardless of breed, to aid in the prevention of pet overpopulation.

Who We Are

We are a small group of animal lovers who have come together to rescue and foster animals in need. Our dedicated group of volunteers are unpaid and extremely committed to making a difference in the lives of animals in our care. Funding for our non profit comes entirely from public donations, our adoption fees and fundraisers. We do not receive any city, county or government funding.

Animals Rule Placement Foundation was established in 2003 as a registered 501(C)3 Non-Profit Animal Welfare Organization Tax ID #13-4264510. Your tax deductible donation is used 100% for the welfare and veterinary care of the animals while they are with us. We are based in San Pedro, CA, in the South Bay area of Los Angeles.
