Adopt a Dog. Save a Life.

Love Leo Rescue is a non-profit based in Los-Angeles.
We believe dogs deserve a second chance.



Meet Matilda.
This pretty dog has been let down by quite a few people in her life. She was found as a stray and taken in by some kindhearted people. She slept in a bed every night with a young girl and loved her time with them but the landlord kicked her out and she ended up at a crowded shelter. Long story short – she made her way to us and is now doing great.
Matilda is a very smart, athletic dog. She will thrive with a structured environment and lots of exercise. Matilda is a rough player and and loves playing hard with other dogs. Her play style is a bit much for most dogs and for that reason we think she would do best as an only dog.
She is crate trained, house trained and walks well on leash. Wed like to find a family with breed experience for Matilda.
Please email us for more information:
Thank you for choosing to adopt and saving a life.

Two construction workers did not know what to do when they found him and they brought him to the shelter. He was scheduled to be immediately euthanized because the shelter is not equipped […]

Care 4 Your Pet #1

Adoptable Dogs

Big Ed

Meet Big Ed. This XL lab mix puppy is an easygoing, all around great puppy. He loves other dogs and would be fine with cats too (with proper introduction). He is about 38 lbs now and we think he will be 75-80 (best guess) at maturity. He loves going for walks and hikes, is crate […]

Sean the shar Pei

Meet Sean. The first 6 months of his life must have been pretty rough but he’s in good hands now. He was found hiding in the bushes – terrified of the world. Once we rescued him it was clear he needed to have surgery to correct a genetic defect of his eyelids (called entropian which […]


Meet Beatrice. We wonder what her former life must’ve been like for her to be so scared? She was marked as fearful at the shelter and we knew that she would need a little extra help finding a forever home. She is 7 pounds and about 5 years old. We just got her teeth cleaned […]


Thomas’ before photo is hard to look at. He was kept on a chain and seldom fed. That was his life. By the time the rescuers in Tijuana got to him – he was half of his healthy body weight and near death. He required a blood transfusion and weeks of wound treatment for pressure […]


If you need mo’ love in your life – adopt Mo. Mo is the sweetest dog you have not yet met and he’s winning hearts all around Los Angeles. He’s a 5 year old pitbull mix that was rescued from death row. He was placed in isolation due to a cut on his head. He […]


Petunia was rescued from the dangerous San Bernardino shelter on her last day of safety. She came to us so fearful and scared of the world – she would not walk outside. After a short session with our trainer and a week in a loving foster home – she is a different dog. Her personality […]



Monkey came into the shelter in rough shape.  One look at him and it was clear he had spent the first part of his young life deprived of medical care and – kindness.  He was suffering from a severe case of mange, his lymph nodes were swollen and he had secondary infections. We took care […]


Henderson was found lying on the street – he was on the verge of death. His skeletal body was brought to the shelter where they sent out an email blast for rescues to help this very ill puppy.  He was suffering from bacterial pneumonia. After 5 days in the hospital – he went to a […]


We saw Turducken’s photo at the Lancaster shelter.  She was emaciated and totally shut down.  It was clear her former life had been one of neglect and sadness.  We wanted to turn things around for her. After we got her the required medical care – she began to put weight on.  Her gentle, loving personality […]
