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.

Adoptable Dogs

Charlotte the Chug

Meet Charlotte. She is a 2 year old, 10 lb pug mix. This funny face was surrendered to us after her former owners breed her, sold her puppies and then decided they no longer wanted her. They were going to turn her loose on the street but luckily someone stepped in and she is now […]


Meet Meatball. He is a 2 year old American Bully. This handsome dog has good looks for miles. He is about 70 lbs and we think 30 percent of that is in his bowling ball size head. He was surrendered to the shelter by his former owners most likely because he had a torn ACL […]

Ping Pong

Meet Ping Pong. He is a 4 month old lab/pit mix who loves every single person and dog he meets. This funny little guy was on the euthanasia list at a shelter in riverside. He had an easily treatable autoimmune disease but the shelter was unable to provide a good environment for him to recover […]

Meet Everest. This gorgeous, 7 month old husky was found on the side of the road by a good Samaritan in a desert town. He had been hit by a car and had two broken legs. He could not stand on his own. We found out about him and raced him to our orthopedic specialist […]

Strawberry Shortcake

Meet Strawberry🍓Shortcake. This #ittybitty 42 lb pittie just joined LLR. She was found in living in a house in Tijuana. When our rescue friend arrived – she was being mauled by two large dogs. She didn’t try and fight back, she just laid there — waiting for it to be over. Somehow our friend was […]



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 […]
