A Purposeful Rescue is a 501c3 non-profit that saves dogs from high-kill Los Angeles area shelters. There are many amazing dogs who get overlooked, or need a little extra work and care, and we aim to give those dogs a second chance. We strongly believe that we will not adopt our way out of the problem of pet overpopulation, which is why we focus heavily on prevention and community outreach. Primarily focused on South Central Los Angeles, we promote spay and neuter and education. We rely on the hard work and dedication of our volunteers.
