Featured Dog - Linus


When we first saw Linus at the shelter, he was completely terrified and stood shaking in the corner too afraid to move. With his tail tucked between his legs and head bent down as far as it would go, it broke our hearts that a puppy just barely a year old had to experience such fear in his short life. Just a couple days after arriving at NLOL, we discovered that Linus is indeed a puppy! He's playful, fun, curious, sweet, and everything he does is adorable! 

We are still getting to know this cute little butterball, but from what we can tell so far, he's eager to play with other dogs, loves people, does not enjoy wearing the cone of shame after his neuter, and is just a typical puppy who deserves a forever home where he'll never have to face the uncertainty of a shelter again. If you're looking for your new best friend, you've found him! Get more info on Linus here http://nlol.org/rescue-dog/linus




Saving the lives of homeless animals and improving the lives of people

After years of observing the shelter system deteriorate and countless pets die, a vision of how to be more effective began to take shape. In 1997 New Leash On Life Animal Rescue Foundation was formed and in March of 2002 the organization moved to a thirteen acre facility in the Santa Clarita Valley and established the E.R.A. Center for Education, Rehabilitation and Adoption which serves as a safe haven for many companion animals, and a learning resource for children and adults facilitating New Leash On Life’s vision of making Los Angeles a no-kill city. Since its inception, New Leash On Life has been responsible for spaying and neutering thousands of pets, rescuing and placing over 5,000 dogs, and making a determined effort to educate the community on responsible pet ownership. We also have a rich history of Search & Rescue efforts in disaster relief throughout the nation including Hurricanes Gustov , Katrina, Rita and the wild fires of 2008 in Southern California.
