Help D.E.L.T.A. Rescue continue to save abandoned cat and dog angels, and care for all their needs for life.

At D.E.L.T.A. Rescue we care for our rescues for life. 

This is what makes us different from everyone else.

Dedication & Everlasting Love To Animals (D.E.L.T.A. Rescue); founded by Leo Grillo in 1979, is a non-profit wilderness animal rescue organization.

The DELTA Rescue staff provides food, medical care, as well as everlasting love and dedication to animals that have been abandoned in the wilderness. On a daily basis animals are abandoned in the forests and deserts without any food or water.

For over 40 years now Leo has personally rescued thousands of animals that would have otherwise faced certain death. Once Leo has rescued one of these precious animals they are then taken to the D.E.L.T.A. Rescue Super Sanctuary: the largest, no-kill, and care-for-life sanctuary in the world. The Super Sanctuary sits on a 115-acre mountaintop and is currently home to 1,500 cats and dogs.

Each of our dogs is either spayed or neutered, and then "married" to another rescued dog of the opposite sex. The married couple lives in a huge yard with their own stuccoed straw bale doghouse. Our 800 cats live in three dozen air-conditioned indoor and outdoor catteries where they each enjoy three meals a day. The formerly feral cats now have a cozy place to sleep, and climbing trees to play on!

At D.E.L.T.A. Rescue we are passionate about the safety and well being of our animals, but our care and concern does not stop there.

Being the largest no-kill shelter in the world, and the most renowned, when people are desperate to "get rid" of their pet, they call us - dozens of times a week! Unlike most groups, we will NOT contribute to the "disposable pet" problem, by letting these people think it is alright to give up their children. We let them know it's a terrible thing, and that they MUST find another way to solve their problem.

The pet adoption tips we offer are a set of guidelines to help you find a home for a rescued animal. View our tips here.

All of our partners get a monthly update telling the story of one of our rescued animals and answereing questions from our supporters some of which are on this page. As a donor you'll be getting this q and a every month. We look forward to you sending in your questions that Leo can answer.

We are always in need of blankets, towels, and treats for our dogs and cats.
