Healthy Living: How an LA Dog Rescue is Saving Families From Surrendering Pets
It happens most days at shelters in many low-income neighborhoods.
From LA’s Downtown Dog Rescue, one woman is helping to keep thousands of those animals in their homes.
Lori Weise and her shelter intervention program make a difference to families one at a time.
The Shelter Intervention Program costs Downtown Dog Rescue about $200,000 a year and so far has kept nearly 21,000 animals out of shelters.
Funding comes primarily from grants from animal protection agencies and donations.
