Who We Are

West Coast Animal Rescue is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that encompasses animal rescue groups, including Sparky and the Gang in Long Beach, CA. We work to rescue dogs and place them in safe, loving homes. Group volunteers rescue primarily dogs but sometimes cats from local pounds, off the streets and from unsuitable homes. We also pull dogs off Los Angeles freeways and from areas in downtown Los Angeles and South Central. Our group works from different areas in Los Angeles and Orange County and most animals are kenneled, although some animals live in foster care. All group members work on a volunteer basis and most have full-time jobs separate from this organization.


Volunteering and Donations

HOT OFF THE PRESS!!!!! We have a new facility for our doggies. If you would like to come on out and walk, wash or just love our pooches, please email us to sign up on our volunteer list. We are always in desperate need of foster homes as our volunteers homes are overflowing with dogs. Foster homes allow our dogs to socialize to interact daily with people and other animals. They learn the important training they need to find a good loving home. Please call us if you are interested! We would also love more volunteers to help out at adoption shows on the weekends and help walk and wash dogs at our kennel!

If you would like to donate supplies, we are always in need of any of the following items: DOG FOOD, dog beds, old blankets, towels, paper towels, dog treats, leashes, collars, dog crates, kennels or pet corrals (especially large and extra large), dog food and water bowls, Advantage/Frontline, and dog toys/balls.

To donate supplies or make a monetary donation, please contact us at 310-621-1417 or email sparkyandthegang@yahoo.com. You can also use PayPal to donate, which is a safe and secure website. Thank you for your support!


Adopting a Friend

Our adoption procedure begins with the interested party visiting the dog/cat at our kennel/foster home or at one of our adoption shows. They then must fill out an adoption application and be interviewed by a Sparky and the Gang volunteer. Lastly, we conduct home checks and we require an adoption donation, which is paid directly to our group. The adoption donation goes directly back into rescuing and caring for abandoned dogs for any of the following necessities: Pound fees, shots, boarding, feeding, transporting, surgeries and other medical costs. We put our hearts and souls into these animals, and we look for people who will love them as much as we do!


Come Visit Us!

We hope to see you there! Please email ahead of time if you are interested in a specific dog. We can't bring them all, but would love to show you a friend you are interested in meeting.
