I love their hard work and passion for our furry-friends. I adopted two of my fur-babies from the Lang Foundation. They are loving and their priority is the welfare of the animals. They stand for what an animal foundation should be.
I volunteered late 2008 - 2010 before moving out of state. Mostly just socializing the kitties, and they are my favorite animal. I had no plans to adopt but in Nov. 2008 I did adopt the most beautiful kitty boy in the world, Pepper. I've had many pets, and loved them all -- but Pepper and later his "cat brother" Buckley have been so precious, such a huge joy and gift in my life.
Having just moved back to LA I am considering volunteering again. The staff is super kind and caring. The place is clean. They stand behind the animals they rescue, 100%, forever. When Pepper was diagnosed with asthma soon after adoption they offered to pay his asthma treatments FOR LIFE. I don't know any organizations that do this.
I started volunteering at the Lange Foundation when my work went to 4 days about 5 years ago. I have gone from volunteering on a Friday to 3 days a week after work and on Sunday. I have enjoyed this experience so much and have met not only some fantastic dogs and cats but some absolutely wonderful people, both staff and fellow volunteers. Lange is known for taking on dogs and cats that have had injuries that normally would be put to sleep at various shelters. I have seen these severely injured dogs and cats transformed into healthy happy pets. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing the list at the end of the month listing the dogs and cats that have found their forever home. I have brought 2 home myself....and counting.
I’m another long-time volunteer at the Lange Foundation, having started in 2003, while looking for a new cat. It took me months to find the right fit, and in the meantime I found spending time with the cats there was a big help to them and the staff. So many cats who would otherwise have gone to a high-kill shelter are given a secure pleasant sanctuary and many find wonderful forever homes. This is also true for all the dogs, who enjoy good care and many walks a day with loving volunteers until they find the perfect forever home.
I started volunteering at Lange Foundation about 12 years ago. I am not sure who gets more out it - me or the dogs and cats. I work full time and I always look forward to my weekends when I spend time at Lange Foundation. The life-saving mission of Lange Foundation opened my eyes to the world of animal rescue which is often heart-breaking, but also rewarding and more gratifying than anything I have ever known.
I started volunteer dog-walking for Lange Foundation when I retired 15 years ago. Many dogs later, I still get up every weekday morning looking forward to our walks. The kennel is conveniently located and around the corner from a great walking neighborhood. The staff is focused on the animals (dogs and cats) and they get the best care and attention.
