Shelter Hope Pet Shop
is a 501c non-profit, charitable, volunteer-based organization devoted to: aiding in and facilitating shelter and rescue pet adoptions; promoting education and awareness within the communities we serve; and making a positive impact in the lives of shelter and rescue animals and their adopters, as well as local shelters.
Shelter Hope Pet Shop is the premier source for adoptable dogs within the community. We help save the lives of hundreds of dogs each year. By doing so, we will also have a positive impact with helping to decrease the number of potential unhealthy puppy mill puppies purchased from for-profit and inhumane businesses.
Shelter Hope Pet Shop is part of the Shelter Hope Project, which strives to make this the business model for all pet shops nationwide. We hope to abolish all puppy mill pet shops, help find homes for the countless pets in our shelters that face euthanasia, and educate the public on how we can all help reduce future shelter population.
Lange Foundation and St. Bonnie’s Sanctuary
Every year in Los Angeles County, thousand of pets are taken to animal shelters simply because they drastically outnumber the homes available to them. They spend their last few days in crowded cages before many of them are euthanized. As their lives silently end, thousands more are being born who will endure the same fate.
The long-term answer to the overpopulation problem is to prevent the births of pets who will never have homes and will only know misery during their short lives. We are currently seeking funding to continue our efforts in the spay/neuter field.
In the meantime, with your help, we will do all we can to give a future to those who have already been born and abandoned and need our help so desperately. We continue to do so until the day finally comes when animal shelters will be what they were intended to be: a place of refuge.
The Lange Foundation (a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization) was founded in 1993 by Gillian Lange, recipient of the 1980 City of Los Angeles St. Francis of Assisi award for her rescue work with impounded animals since 1974. Lange founded the Amanda Foundation in 1975.
To date the two Foundations have rescued and placed over 27,000 cats, dogs and horses who would otherwise have been destroyed in overcrowded public animal shelters. Lange and a group of dedicated staff and volunteers works and will continue working everyday to help homeless animals.
The Wm. S. Hart Education Foundation is dedicated to quality public education for all students. Through the generosity of our caring community and corporate partners, we fund programs and initiatives that go beyond what tax dollars provide and help elevate and prepare our students for life. WiSH is the official public charity 501(c)3 organization for the support of the William S. Hart Union High School District’s educational programs.
