Shelter Transport Animal Rescue Team (START) a 501C3 non-profit group, rescues homeless animals from overcrowded high-kill Southern and Central Califomia shelters. We currently transport monthly up to 90 animals via our customized vehicle to fully vetted organizations in Oregon & Washington, where they are readily adopted into good homes.
Since our founding in 2011, START has saved over 7,500 dogs and nearly 500 cats! That's 1,454 shelter animals per year!
We also provide 90 spay/neuter procedures monthly and medical help to the underserved communities in Riverside, Colton, Palmdale, Lancaster and other areas in need. Additionally, START has a Grassroots Program to assist small rescues and networkers with seed money to help save shelter and homeless animals.
START's" Beyond Borders Program assists dogs from Tijuana & Tecate Mexico. The program also helps rescue dogs from the meat markets of South Korea with the courageous assistance of rescuers there.
We are "The Little EngineThat Could" and our "Engine" is about to get much bigger and increase the number of our precious cargo. Be part of our latest adventure and take the virtual ride on START's 38 foot life saving customized RV with all the bells and whistles, including a 24/7 on-call emergency vet.
