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 are 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 out and walk, wash or just love on our pooches, please email us and we will send you a Volunteer Application. We are always in desperate need of foster homes as our volunteers homes are overflowing with dogs. Foster homes allow our dogs to socialize and interact daily with people and other animals in a home environment. They learn important training on proper "home" behavior which helps to ensure successful adoptions. Please email us if you are interested in becoming a foster parent! 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 the following items: poop bags, dog food, dog beds, blankets, towels, dog treats, leashes, collars, dog crates, kennels or pet corrals, bowls, Advantage/Frontline/Revolution, dog toys, grooming supplies (i.e. shampoo, conditioner), paper towels, laundry detergent, bleach, Dawn dishsoap,

To donate supplies or make a monetary donation, please contact us at 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 at our kennel or at one of our adoption events. They then must fill out an adoption application and be interviewed by a West Coast Animal Rescue volunteer. Once approved, we will go over all of the necessary paperwork and we do 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 meeting a specific dog. We can't bring them all, but would love to show you a friend you are interested in meeting.
