Nonprofit Overview

Mission: Our mission at 4Life Animal Rescue is to provide care and resources to animals in need. We offer adoption, education, training, and rehabilitation services to ensure that unwanted and neglected animals are safe and receive the life-long care they require and deserve. We also promote responsible pet ownership; and offer prevention and intervention services to families afflicted by harsh economic conditions to ensure their pet(s) remain a part of the family. All animals in our care will receive any and all medical attention necessary and will not be adopted out without being spayed or neutered, given up-to-date on vaccinations, and being micro-chipped. In the event an adoption fails, or a family must surrender their pet, 4Life will always keep an open door and the animal will be taken in. 4Life is a non-profit, entirely volunteer-based organization located in Orange County California, and we rely on the generosity of our volunteers, donors, and fundraisers to operate. We fulfill our mission by collaborating with other rescues, our local shelters, veterinarians, boarding facilities, and local businesses.

Direct beneficiaries per year: rescue and/or re-home 80+ animals in need by providing supplies, medical care, training and socialization

I moved ro california from chicago and was horrified to see how bad the homeless pet situation was here.. 4life and the amazing people who run it helped restore a little bit of my faith in humanity. They are responsible and caring, and do everything they can to help fur babies in need. The world is a better place because of this rescue.

I love this rescue. They are highly dedicated to the animals they take on. I also really love that they help animals that are not even with their rescue through their community outreach support. They help owners who can no longer keep their dog or cat to find a new home. They assist them through the adoption process, and even will help with introducing the adopters' dogs to the dog needing rehomed. They simply care about all animals.

I came to know 4Life Animal Rescue because they helped me with a pit bull I had rescued from the shelter. They helped me find him a home. I was so appreciative of their help and their genuine concern for the dog I had saved that I became a volunteer with the rescue. They stand by their dogs through medical issues that might arise and through any behavioral issues that might arise and provide intensive training and socialization for the dogs who need it in order to be successfully adopted out. They have rehabilitated several dogs through a board and train program.

4Life Animal Rescue is a top notch rescue and I am honored to be part of such a fine organization.

4Life Animal Rescue is one of the best dog and cat rescues that focus on helping all breeds, but have a great love and understanding for pitbulls which I personally appreciate. They save animals from shelters, strays, owner surrenders, etc. They strive on getting them into good foster homes, offer training, and give them all the love and support needed to find them their perfect forever home. They screen all applicants, do home checks, follow ups, and always takes the animals back into their care if an adopter returns them for any reason or time. I truly respect and trust the founders of 4Life and enjoy being part of such a great team of volunteers.

4Life is the most amazing rescue I have ever had the pleasure of working with, which is why I work/ volunteer with them as much as I can! The animals they rescue are usually the ones no one wants or have medical issues, 4life heals and cares for these animals and bring out in them the perfection they are. They spare no cost or time oe emotional support in every aspect. It is a true blessing to watch what the 4 life team does on a daily basis. Truly selfless and loving people at 4life... and the animals they rescue, well, you wont find a better pooch around after 4life works their magic (love)
