Please share beautiful Kit Kat!  She really is a great dog and she gets overlooked!  She loves to be indoors.  She is not a fan of cats.

Tiny Benoit Blanc is available. 

He is ten weeks old and five pounds. We cannot predict know how big he will get, but his mom is a Jack Russell terrier. Her date declined to disclose his breed.

Benoit Blanc is not listed on our website but he is available. Applications and frequently asked questions are at www.ghettorescue.org

When you foster mom washes you! 🤣 

Benoit Blanc was the runt of his litter.  The first night with his foster mom he screamed when he was put in his crate.  Luckily his foster mom is a softie, so he got to sleep in bed with her. 💙

Welcome Benoit Blanc!💙 

He is accepting applications!  We did see his mom and she was about the size and coloring of a Jack Russell Terrier. 🤷🏼‍♀️ No one knows who his dad was. 

We do not know how big he will get. He is currently five pounds and approximately ten weeks old.  We are working with the family to get the mommy dog spayed.

2023 news!

We are sure many of you remember when we rescued Floyd Vanderhoof. 

His prior owner is set for trial, mid February in Texas.  We will keep you posted. 

Thankful he is loved and cared for by his adoptive dad!

We know Betty White had a great sense of humor and she loved animals the same way we do! 

We have been looking for a special shelter dog for a few weeks, so we can name her after Betty’s SNL character.

Betty, we think you would approve! ❤️

If you missed the last time we sold GRFF t-shirts, keep your eyes on our page. We’ve ordered more shirts and will post here when they arrive and are available to order. 

*Reminder-the only place to get GRFF approved merchandise is directly from us and/or our website. We ALWAYS post on Facebook and Instagram when we have a clothing sale, so don’t be fooled by people who tag you on our page telling you to go to their website to place an order. These are people who have stolen our logo and none of the proceeds will benefit GRFF dogs.

Hi GRFF alumni families,

We are looking for current photos of some of our three-legged alumni for a future post. Please send to amy@ghettorescue.org and include their GRFF name if you remember. 

Pictured here is our most recent tripod, Fancy Pants, who is now very loved in her forever home. @fancytripaws 

Thank you 🐾❤️

P.S. If you have a tripod that’s not an alumni, we’d love a photo.

Do you remember the pups Chuck Eye and Skirt Steak from the streets Eagle Pass, Texas?  One had a broken leg! 

They are not too warm and fuzzy, or cuddly, but they are loved and cared for!  Their mom has done a great job with them, and their quirky ways. 

Thank you to G 💕 and her family of humans and other GRFF dogs who literally changed their lives.

❤️ We run our Texas program @lovingtexaspetassistance 
Sharing
“Recently we paid for a Veterinarian to come to Seguin to spay and neuter pets living with low income folks.  A woman qualified for an appointment and she brought over a chubby, older Dachshund mix, to get spayed. 

After her surgery the staff asked me to speak to the woman about putting the dog on a diet, and giving her a bit more exercise. Surgery on a small, heavy dog can complicate internal suturing, as it did with her. 

When I went to talk to the woman, she told me her mom passed away three months ago, and Georgia had been her mom‘s dog. ❤️

That changed everything, because then I realized it didn’t matter so much that Georgia was heavy set, what mattered was that the gal was caring for her mother’s dog.”

“I don’t want them, all their puppies died.” Everyday.  Every. Single. Day.  We need more fosters in order to say “yes”🙏🏽 Our foster rule, “Don’t lose the GRFF dog.” We supply what you need.  heidi@ghettorescue.org

What do we do?

The term “rescue” can mean many different things to many different people. Different rescues sometimes have different focuses. In the end, we all care about the well being of pets. 

So what does Ghetto Rescue focus on?  Many things! Including, but not limited to:

1. Street dog rescue
2. Shelter intervention 
3. Assistance to low income and homeless families’ pets. 
4. We occasionally pull dogs from Los Angeles City shelters, as space and finances allow. 
5. Education, spay/neuter focus.
6. And more!

What GRFF does NOT do:
1. Take in lost dogs. Please take them to the shelter. This is where everyone goes first when looking for a lost pet. Wouldn’t you? Don’t assume that just because a dog (or cat) is skinny or dirty that it doesn’t have a home. A lost dog can look ragged quickly on the streets due to stress and lack of food and shelter.
2. We don’t take in owner relinquished dogs. 
4. We don’t pull dogs from shelters that aren’t Los Angeles City shelters. Rescues have established relationships with certain shelters and just because we are a rescue, we don’t have the right to pull dogs from just any shelter. We are tagged in numerous “please save this dog” posts every single day and 90% of them aren’t even in Southern California. 
5. We don’t repost “red list” or “euthanasia list” dogs from any shelters. 
6. We don’t do long distance adoptions. We only adopt within a six hour driving radius of Los Angeles.

Based on the guidance of our Board of Directors, GRFF focuses on the dogs we currently have that need homes. Although we have tens of thousands of followers, we run on a skeleton crew of volunteers, most that also work full-time jobs. We simply can’t use the little manpower we have to repost pets in need when we have multiple dogs in ranch boarding that we are trying to find homes for. 

Thank you for following us, liking and sharing posts, donating, adopting, fostering and shopping at Ralph’s and Amazon Smile.

Monthly donors,

First of all, we would like to thank you for your continued generosity by making a monthly donation, no matter the amount. Monthly donations allow us to plan for how many pets we can help in a month.

We have been receiving a lot of requests lately to change the amount of the donation or to give new bank or credit card information. If you ever need to make changes to your monthly donation, please contact kathleen@ghettorescue.org

If you are not a monthly donor, but would like to be, please visit our website and click DONATE.

🎓 A neat update from Seeing Stars Selene (now Bella). She is the dog on the far right. 

“She’s been our favorite dog. So much personality. Sweet and sassy. 

GRFF has inspired us to adopt/rehome 3 more dogs since Bella. Bo is an interesting case. Our parents rescued a female that happened to be unknowingly pregnant. Bo is part of that litter. He was sent to a different owner but their other dog abused Bo, so he came to us. We rehomed another husky from a couple that was moving into a non-pet friendly environment. Then my daughter found a golden roaming the streets with a chewed off rope tied around its neck. Tried to get the word out to find the owner, to no avail. We kept him as well. 

Thank you for all you do. You’re such inspirations.” 

💙💙💙 What a great photo. Thank you for the update. 

If you’ve adopted from us and haven’t sent an update, but have been meaning to, we’d love to hear from you. amy@ghettorescue.org

Hooligan is not familiar with walking on a leash, but he is doing great! 💙 

He is not available for adoption yet. after he’s neutered and we have had his leg checked, then he will be available for adoption.

Some good news to start 2023! 🎉 

We were contacted by a law enforcement officer 💙 who saw this guy on a post.  GUESS WHAT?  She offered to foster, not just show us his picture, and that is a HUGE help!  Thank you!

He was in the medical area of South L A for a bum leg.  The medical staff told us he was spunky and although he has a bum leg, they said he gets around just fine. 

His foster mom went to pick him up after we pulled him (making him no longer on shelter list). She drove him home and said he is a very happy.  He needs to have his leg looked and and he needs to be neutered, but we haven’t told him yet. 

Happy New Year’s Eve, Hooligan! 🥂

Wiggle Waggle Windy (puppy) is such a sweet puppy girl! 💕Share her please.  Adoptions are slow and the puppies keep growing.  Applications for Windy are on our website! 

*She is available for foster to adopt!  If you foster her, you will probably keep her🤣
Nooo this can’t be reality?  Those EARS!🤣 

Wee Willy Winky! 💙 You can call him Willie or Winky!  Please share him, he’s growing and he’s not getting applications and he’s perfect and adorable and playful! 

We do not know his parents, we do not know how big he will get. He is an All American breed.💙 🇺🇸
