What we aim to solve

Pet Detectives and Rescue Fund is a subsidiary of Ariel Investigations. Our work is conducted in the most ethical manner and according to the laws governing the State of California and New Mexico. We rescue and evaluate abused animals so we can introduce them to a new home. PDRF was started due to the problem of animal abuse, and neglect has grown beyond the resources of the existing animal welfare agencies. They cannot keep pace with the volume of the issues that need to be addressed. We intercede without hesitation when we are informed of a situation that needs to be addressed. Our vision is that all animals are treated with dignity and respect and live free from cruelty, harm, and neglect. Simple acts of awareness and compassion can save the lives of countless animals in need. Animals can’t tell you about their abuse or cry out for help, so we decided to stand up for as many of them as we can to stop violence and find them forever happy homes. Our focus keeps us dedicated to fighti

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
