Mission Statement

Inspired by Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book, Mowgli Rescue was created to foster the valuable relationship between animal and man. Kipling’s classic tale tells the story of Mowgli, an orphaned boy who is raised in the jungle by wolves. Over the course of Mowgli’s childhood, the jungle animals continually protect and teach him many life lessons from friendship, hardships, loss and love. Mowgli Rescue is a 501(c)(3) animal rescue sanctuary in Los Angeles that works to rescue and rehabilitate disadvantaged animals that are then placed in forever homes. During their time in the Mowgli Program, dogs are taken to visit at-risk youth organizations where the children interact and heal with their new furry friends


Mowgli Rescue Is An Animal Rescue That Takes In Abandoned, Neglected, And Abused Animals That We Rehabilitate And Foster Either In Our Topanga Intake Refuge Or In A Foster Home Until They Are Ready To Be Placed In A Permanent Home.

Some Of Our Selected Rescues Will Be Used As Animal Assisted Activities For At-Risk Youth. We Are Partnering With Various Organizations In Southern California That Are Seeking Alternative Therapy For Children And Teenagers That Have Undergone Trauma Or Experienced Difficult Circumstances.
