PPPR Mission

Precious Pals Pet Rescue is dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating and re-homing animals from high-kill shelters throughout Southern California. Our main focus is rescuing abandoned and neglected animals with medical needs. We work with the best Veterinarians and Board Certified Specialists to assure that our rescues get the best medical treatment they need so they can live long and healthy lives in their new forever homes.

We are an all foster based rescue where our animals receive love and training from our wonderful foster families so they can go onto their forever homes with an easy transition. Our adoption process includes a detailed application and home safety check to assure that the home is the right fit for our animal. It is our goal to give our rescues the home of their dreams. We love each one of our rescues as if they were our own, so it is our mission & goal to make sure that they are not just "pets", but are loved family members.

Precious Pals Pet Rescue is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit rescue organization located in Los Angeles. We are a group of dedicated animal loving volunteers who go above and beyond to change the lives of abandoned and neglected shelter dogs.

We are a predominantly a small breed rescue that emphasizes on rescuing medical, special needs and seniors. We spare no costs when it comes to saving a life, and will never put down a dog until all medical interventions have been exhausted and we as a team along with our Veterinarian feel that it's time to let them cross to the Rainbow Bridge. When we say we are in rescue to "Save Lives" that's exactly what we do and that's the promise we give to each or our medical dogs.

In 2018 after seeing the plight of the animal rescues in China who take heroic measures to save dogs from the meat trade industry, our hearts went out to a particular group called Slaughterhouse Survivors in Harbin, China. Since our partnership with SHS started, we have rescued over 20 dogs together prior to Covid. We look forward to the opportunity to rescue again with SHS and hope to open our rescue to helping other countries in need of help.


It is absolutely vital to us that we match the right dog to the right home. This is why we have a thorough adoption application and an in person meet and greet. After we agree with the potential adopter that they are a perfect match, we then move forward with a home safety check and then we complete the adoption with a binding contract.

We offer lifelong support for our adopters and are there to help with advice, recommendations for Veterinary care, training etc. If at any point in the dog’s life there is a situation where our adopter is unable to care for their dog, we REQUIRE  they bring the dog back to us no matter the age or medical condition of the dog. We are committed to each of our dog’s well being for their lifetime!

Every dog in our organization is spayed or neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped, provided a dental when needed and given a clean bill of health by one of our Veterinarians prior to going into their forever home.


Nothing makes us sadder then seeing a senior in the shelter at a time when they need their family the most. Sometimes it's a blessing that they were abandoned since most are in such a state of neglect, being rescued is just what they needed.

With our Forever Foster Program we take in these seniors and provide them the necessary medical care they need whether it is minor or severe and we place them into a loving forever "fospice" home where they are loved for the remainder of their life.

We cover all their medical needs until it’s time for them to cross to the rainbow bridge. The days, weeks, months or years our seniors live with their forever foster, we guarantee will be filled with more love then they had ever known. Help our seniors in our Forever Foster Program and become a monthly donor.


Precious Pals Pet Rescue solely relies on donations to run our rescue. No amount is too small. Donations are 100% tax deductible.
