Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The problem in L.A. County is that there are 25 overcrowded public shelters. We are trying to alleviate this problem by attacking it from both ends ... 1) rescuing as many impounded pets as our West LA kennel and Canyon Country Sanctuary can possibly, comfortably accommodate with emphasis on senior pets who are usually overlooked by the public, and who are suffering from injuries resulting from accidents or abuse. 2) Doing all we can to keep owners from impounding their own pets. 3) Conducting the largest spay/neuter program in the economically disadvantaged Antelope Valley.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We are working towards the goal of L.A. County becoming a no kill area where there is a home for every cat and dog born.

1) Rescuing pets from City and County shelters and taking care of them at our kennels, providing all medical care needed to make them highly adoptable.

2) Issuing spay/neuter vouchers to residents of the Antelope Valley where they just pay the first $50.00 and we pay the rest of the procedure fee including pain meds and antibiotics, at specific Veterinarians we have chosen to be part of our program.

3) We operate an innovative Safety Net Program (Intervention) at the overcrowded Palmdale and Lancaster Shelters through which we have our own staff inside these shelters at all times during their business hours. We provide alternatives to pet owners who feel they have no other option than relinquishing their pets to the shelter system, most of whom cannot afford veterinary care. We provide medical help, surgeries when funds allow, training, grooming, temporary boarding, food, supplies ... whatever is needed to keep the pet in the home where they are loved.

4) Last year we joined forces with the Los Angeles County Homeless Initiative to offer care for the pets of the homeless. We provide medical care, vaccinations, grooming, food and supplies for pets of the homeless in the Antelope Valley.

We have a staff of 24 full time and part time employees, all highly skilled in the positions they hold and committed to making our programs a success. We have a mailing list of 14,000 supporters, and our revenue is growing every year. We have 2 immaculate kennel facilities in which to comfortably house the cats and dogs we rescue, and a very large number of dedicated volunteers who help us give personal attention to every pet under our care.

Since Lange Foundation was founded in 1993, we have rescued more than 15,000 impounded pets. (including 36 horses)

In 2018, we rescued 102 impounded pets that were in need of medical care and surgeries.

Our Safety Net Program, established in 2015, has enabled us to help more than 3,000 pets stay in their homes, including help for those pet owners who could not afford to redeem their own pets who were lost and later found in the shelters.

Our Spay/Neuter program has distributed 2,500 vouchers and is growing rapidly.

Our 1 year old Homeless Initiative Program has provided assistance to 116 pets.

As far as "What's Next" we are working tirelessly to increase our funding so that all of our life saving programs can expand their work, as well as always searching for new ways in which we can help the plight of the companion animals.
