"I cannot alone change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples." ~Mother Teresa
"The numbers are staggering: A dog is euthanized in a shelter across the U.S. every 2 seconds. Many of these dogs are perfect and highly adoptable, perhaps only in the shelter because they chewed a shoe, barked too much, or their family was moving and didn't want to take them along. We must try to change these numbers; we must speak for those who cannot speak for themselves."

TEAM ROVER RESCUE 2012 ...Run for the Life of a Dog!
Join TEAM ROVER RESCUE 2012 as we run the Honda LA Marathon 2012!
Rover Rescue is a non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue and placement of homeless dogs from Los Angeles animal shelters. We have rescued and placed over 1300 dogs since our inception in 2001. Many of the dogs we rescue are in dire need of medical attention, and Rover Rescue covers the costs of medical treatments and life saving surgeries. All of our dogs are boarded up until the right home is found, and we provide "beauty makeovers" and "attitude adjustments" (training, working with our animal behaviorists and trainers) to help these precious dogs find their forever home!
In addition, we strive to lower the rate of euthanasia in our local shelters by providing spay/neuter vouchers for the dogs of low income residents of LA County.
Please join our team and run with us to help save the lives of dogs! Or consider a donation to help our cause!
