Animal Sanctuary sends out S.O.S.
LOS ANGELES, CA -- At a time when millions of Americans are tightening their belts to survive the economic downturn, pleas for charitable donations are increasingly going unanswered. But for one group of lost souls, even the smallest donations can mean the difference between life and death.
They are domesticated pets that have been abandoned in the wilderness, left to their own devices in harsh conditions and unable to fend for themselves. But they do have a savior. D.E.L.T.A. Rescue is a no-kill, care-for-life sanctuary, located northeast of Los Angeles that is dedicated to rescuing these animals, mending their wounds and showing them a better way of life.
Actor/animal welfare activist Leo Grillo and his organization have been rescuing and caring for animals since he founded D.E.L.T.A. Rescue in 1979. Since then, the group has become a first-responder to disasters and massive rescue situations all across the U.S.
But with the nationwide proliferation of smaller animal rescue organizations, Americans are being bombarded with appeals for donations. For D.E.L.T.A. Rescue, that means fewer funds with which to rescue and care for dogs and cats found in the wild.
The charity also runs two veterinary hospitals.
"D.E.L.T.A. Rescue goes out to where animals are alone and suffering, with absolutely no one else to help them," Grillo said. "If D.E.L.T.A. Rescue doesn't come for them, nobody will. That's what makes our organization different from virtually every other animal rescue organization out there. It's why our work and the continued donations of concerned citizens are so vitally necessary."
