Animal Wellness will donate 40% of each subscription purchased using promo code AWA206 to Bullies and Buddies.
Location: Redondo/Hermosa Beach, CA
Year established: 2009
Number of staff/volunteers/foster homes: 25 volunteers, 20 foster homes
Types of animal they work with: “We mainly rescue bully breeds (pit bulls and pit bull mixes), but as Los Angeles area pounds are filled with small dogs, we also rescue Chihuahuas, teri-poos, terrier mixes, etc., if we have available foster homes.”
Fundraising initiatives: “We are always fundraising as we have dogs who need ongoing vetting and care, as well as dogs with behavioral issues who need training. We are also working on a fundraiser to purchase a van to help transport dogs to and from adoption events, vet visits etc.”
Favorite rescue story: “Grace is a senior pit bull who was rescued from a high kill pound right before her euthanization date. She was severely emaciated, and was both diabetic and blind. We thought she would be a hospice dog, and never thought anyone would want to adopt her. But there was a special person out there for her, and Grace now lives in an amazing home where she is getting all the love and care her former owners never gave her.”
