I can not heap enough praise on this organization. The volunteers go above and beyond to promote and care for their adorable pets. I have been an adopter, supporter and helped out at adoption events when in LA since 2006. This is an amazing rescue!

Our family has been associated with Much Love Animal Rescue since 2001. My daughter began volunteering with them at the age of 9. Much Love's adult volunteers were excellent role models for my daughter through her growing years. They were also ultra-supportive guides for the dogs and cats we fostered and those we ultimately adopted. We always turn to Much Love when we add pets to our family. The time they spend getting to know the animals and their potential adopters results in successful adoption matches.

I fostered my now full-time fluff ball Bentley from Much Love and they are incredible. They put so much time and love into making sure these wonderful animals find a great home. I can't say enough good things about them!

We adopted our cat Eddie (Capote) from Much Love six years ago and then our dog Jasmine from them a couple of years later. Jasmine was saved by Much Love before she went into a shelter. She was very sick with a respitory infection. They nursed her back to health. Both Eddie and Jasmine has brought so much love and happiness in our home. We couldn't imagine our lives without them.

Finding out about Much Love changed the life of this 68-year-old bachelor. When I heard about the opportunity to foster a dog, I jumped at the chance. Little did I know, the dog they placed in my care would change my life. I am now more physically active than I've been in a very long time, and both my health and my outlook on life have improved enormously. I soon realized fostering was out of the question. My little Dior would have to be mine for keeps. And so she is.

I should also mention that through Much Love Rescue I've met other wonderful dog owners. It's always nice to be a part of a group of like-minded people. Kudos to Much Love for bringing dogs (and cats) and people together.

We lost two of our three dogs in 2015. I was coming apart and our last dog Bernadette was lonely. I saw " Macaroni" and fell in love. I filled out the form for Much Love and sent it in quickly. We went to meet her in Santa Monica and they came to check our home a couple days later. We had Macaroni, now Theodora Harper within a week. She has helped heal our hearts every day. The staff was quick to respond and very helpful. Would recommend them and adopt from them in a heartbeat.

After losing our 17-year-old poodle I was beyond devastated. Six weeks after he passed I decided to spend the day volunteering at Much Love's weekly Sunday adoption in Santa Monica. Shortly after I arrived I was walking some dogs and spotted a beautiful little white maltipoo who reminded me so much of Popcorn, our late poodle. After cooing over him and picking him up (he was incredibly docile) his foster mother told me that she was there for a courtesy show and that he was available for adoption. She lives in Rancho Cucamonga and drove over one hour to travel to the Westside since her neighborhood was hit hard by the downturn in our economy where caring for animals is challenging. Much Love allows for people to come to adoptions for courtesy shows which increases the likelihood for animals being adopted. Though I wasn't sure if we were ready for a dog, I inquired about his availability and she came over that afternoon for a home check. After she saw the painting of Popcorn in our hall way she knew that she had found a loving home for this sweet dog who had been neglected by his previous owners. We named him Enzo and just celebrated his two year anniversary with us last month. He is the light of our lives and we feel incredibly blessed that Much Love was the conduit that brought him to us.
