RESCUED BY Leave No Paws Behind, Inc.  LOOK WHO WE HAVE AND LOOK HOW GRATEFUL HE IS ! They just know that when they are wrapped in the loving arms of our human angel Cathi Perez , no matter what, they are safe , loved and their life matters. We are naming him “ Paddy” and he is now on board the LNPB Freedom Ride to The Pet Doctors of Sherman Oaks. We have one of the best core hospice fosters lying in wait as we raise our paws in prayer that we can give him some time to know kindness, loving arms to embrace him and that his life matters. Happy St Patrick’s Day Paddy, it only gets better from here.


Check this video – no one can argue Paddy doesn’t know he’s been rescued:


Although the Carson Animal Care Center is closed to the general public because of the coronavirus outbreak, it didn’t stop the owners of a 13-year-old Labrador retriever from surrendering him on Sunday.

#A3523351 I’m an approximately 13 year old male Lab Retriever. I am already neutered. I have been at the Carson Animal Care Center since 3/15. I will be available on 3/15. You can visit me at my temporary home at C214. My former family who owned me for more than 5 years had to give me up because they couldn’t afford the care I need. But they said that I spend most of my time indoors. I do not show interest in small children. I am housetrained. I am good on a leash. I seem to get along well with dogs.

Lab Retriever  AGE:13 years

Male  ARRIVED:3/15
Carson Shelter – 310-523-9566
M-TH 12pm-7pm, F-SU- 10am-5pm
216 W Victoria St. Gardena, CA 90248



Fortunately, he was transferred to the Hawthorne SPCA, but life for this boy will quickly change. Leave No Paws Behind has volunteered to help. Toby Wisneski, founder and president of the non profit rescue couldn’t turn her back on this heartbreaking situation:

My heart broke in a million pieces when I saw this video. The county shelters are closed HOWEVER I saw where they had transferred this sweet soul out to SPCALA and I wasted no time picking up the phone! He is in bad shape and more then likely at the end of his life HOWEVER he does not deserve to die like this! Hang on old fella, The Leave No Paws Behind, Inc. Freedom Ride is on the way!

Hopefully A loving hospice foster will be needed in the Los Angeles, Ca and surrounding areas, please email info@leavenopawsbehind.com

Here he was as a puppy many years ago when he was available for adoption.
