After spending years watching the shelter system deteriorate, watching countless of beautiful pets die, a vision of what could be began to take shape. Initially it was a dream. Soon a blue print for implementation of this dream was in place. Finally a strategy for changes that would most significantly impact the inhumane conditions of these precious pets was arrived at. Then, in 1997, New Leash On Life Animal Rescue was born, thanks to Bobby & Kelly Dorafshar. Since its inception, New Leash On Life has been responsible for spaying and neutering thousands of pets, rescuing and placing over 3,000 dogs, providing free educational seminars at local shelters, setting shelter rescue priorities on “hard to place” animals requiring medical or special care, founding the P.E.T.’s program (Pet Educational Trainers) and co-founding Partners for Life which saved hundreds at the East Valley Animal Shelter. Finally in March of 2002, a lease was signed on thirteen acres in the Santa Clarita Valley for our E.R.A Center (Education, Rehabilitation and Adoption) which serves as a safe haven for many companion animals and a learning resource for children and adults facilitating New Leash On Life’s dream of making Los Angeles a no-kill city. We've recently developed our Lend a Paw program, rescuing dogs from the shelter and training them as assistance and therapy dogs for people and children in need. In addition to our Lend a Paw training program, we are implementing a training program for all of our rescues. It is our goal to put each dog rescued from the shelter through an obedience training course prior to being placed for adoption. A very select few may be chosen for Lend a Paw, while most will be adopted to loving families immediately. By training each dog, the adoptive family has a better chance of developing a better bond and a permanent relationship. In addition, our dogs get a lot of human attention from our training volunteers while they wait for their new home.
