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.
