Kathy – Founder/foster
As long back as I can remember, I have always loved animals. I grew up in So Calif with cats, dogs, rabbits, mice, hamsters and tropical fish. During my first visit to a pet store I bought 2 tiny white mice in order to save them from becoming a snake’s meal. Most of my allowance was spent at the pet store. In my bedroom I had a fish aquarium, a mouse cage and a Habitrail. My parents did not share my enthusiasm for pets, but they tolerated it and for that I’m thankful.
I first realized my passion for rescuing animals in 2014 when a friend asked me if I would foster a pregnant pit bull. Someone tied this poor very pregnant dog to a street poll in Los Angeles, in 100 degree heat, and abandoned her. I couldn’t believe someone would do this to their dog. Even though I already had 2 dogs of my own, I agreed to foster her. My friend drove to LA to save the dog, brought her to my house and helped me whelp her puppies. Mama dog had 5 beautiful pittie puppies. As I watched those puppies grow, I was so happy they were in a safe home being loved and cared for. We found them all wonderful permanent homes and it brought me such joy to be a part of saving those precious lives. That’s when I knew I found my passion. I went on to foster and rescue more than 100 dogs and puppies…..and will continue to save as many animals as I possibly can.
