The highest level of Dharma is non injury to all living things. Dharma Rescue for Cats and Dogs is a non profit organization rescuing cats and dogs. We provide them with shelter, spaying and neutering, medical care, and rehabilitation. Our rescue journey has given us the ability to care for abused, critically ill, disabled and senior dogs and cats.
During our journey of rescuing disabled and senior dogs we wanted to do something to bring more attention to adopt older dogs and disabled ones. In 2013 we embarked on a idea to make our disabled and senior dogs therapy dogs. Thanks to the love and eagerness to please we have 7 disabled and senior dogs who are certified therapy dogs. 5 in wheelchairs,one 3 legged and a senior puppy mill breeder dog with some behavioral issues. Each dogs has a volunteer handler that they go out and volunteer with. we also have some of the dogs on the LAX PUP program Pets Unstressing Passengers. Our disabled dogs now serve the community by bring smiles to the faces of children,seniors and disabled. We need more handlers to take our rescues out to do volunteer work. This program bring so much joy to handlers, dogs and the people they meet.
