D.E.L.T.A. Rescue: Care-For-Life Sanctuary, NOT Animal Shelter

"...when I realized that people only keep their dogs on a national average of two-and-a-half years, and after a favorite dog of mine was destroyed a year following her adoption, I slammed the door on it all," explains Grillo.

PRLog - Dec. 10, 2009 - LOS ANGELES, CA -- On the ASPCA community blog, Sharon Raiford Bush, D.E.L.T.A. Rescue's National Director of Media Affairs, wrote:

D.E.L.T.A. Rescue became a No-Kill animal welfare facility in 1979, a national status created by our founder and president, Leo Grillo. He is recognized worldwide as being an expert in the field of animal rescue. D.E.L.T.A. Rescue is the largest care-for-life animal sanctuary in the world, a distinction Grillo also procreated.

It is at D.E.L.T.A. Rescue where previously abandoned pets -- all 1,500 of them -- are awarded a second chance at life and guaranteed to be cared for expertly and loved unconditionally for the remainder of their lives.

Our two state-of-the-art hospitals rival most medical facilities designed for humans. We employ a dedicated full-time staff of seventy.

So not only do our deserving animals enjoy a bond with humans, they also have each other. "It's amazing that people don't know that dogs and cats love to be with each other - especially the emotionally damaged ones," Grillo says.

D.E.L.T.A. Rescue is not an animal shelter. It is not a pound, nor a turnaround adoption facility. It takes weeks, months and even years for Grillo to single-handily rescue these precious animals from some of the harshest environments one can imagine. Many of these domesticated pets were just days shy of starvation before Grillo freed them from a slow and painful death and showed them a better life.

D.E.L.T.A. Rescue became a care-for-life animal welfare organization around 1994.

"We became care-for-life when I found that adoptions didn't work in the long-run for many or our animals, says Grillo. "And instead of being returned to us years later, when people met new lovers for instance, they were killed."

Back in the 1980's, Grillo made history by publishing the first book and producing the first video on animal adoption.

"But when I realized that people only keep their dogs on a national average of two-and-a-half years, and after a favorite dog of mine was destroyed a year following her adoption, I slammed the door on it all," explains Grillo.

D.E.L.T.A. Rescue does not accept animals from the public because the sanctuary is not an alternative to the pound. Keep in mind that whenever a human gives up their pet, the animal's margin of survival shrinks dramatically. Remember, these are animals whose sole purpose in life is to be a part of ours.
