From RESCUE to SERVICE

Rudy is a prime representative of​ how the Lend A Paw program utilizes homeless mixed breed rescues to serve as therapy dogs. Rudy and his two siblings as four week old puppies were rescued roadside in Antelope Valley and 4-6 weeks later they were adopted by loving families as pets. Rudy's handler chose to share the endless love given by this gentle giant and enrolled in the Lend A Paw therapy dog program where Rudy now enjoys a second purpose as they give back as a team.
