Giving dogs a new start at a happy life
Open Arms Rescue is a non-profit dog rescue focusing on dogs in high kill shelters across Southern California that are in need of medical attention or have run out of time and would otherwise be put to sleep. They strive to keep these loving pets alive.
They also focus on Mexico where the number of suffering dogs is frightening. These dogs are typically starving and they provide medical treatment and then place them into foster homes. Being located close to the Mexican border, they travel to Baja at least three times a month on rescue missions.
You can’t change the world by helping one animal, but you can change the world for that animal.
Our mission is to rescue dogs in need and to find loving homes for these misplaced, mistreated, stray and unwanted pets.
How People Can Help Without the faithful work of their volunteers, their organization would not be possible. They do not receive any government funding and depend on donations and fund-raisers. They depend heavily on caring volunteers to foster these unfortunate animals and to bring them into their homes. If they do not have a home in which to put the dogs, they cannot rescue them to begin with.
They welcome any volunteer help for fostering dogs in their homes, transporting dogs to and from events as well as any financial donations or donation of dog/rescue supplies.
