Organizational Information


Together, we make a difference. Since 1993, the Lange Foundation has rescued over 20,000 animals from city and county shelters that would have been otherwise euthanized. We began with our Halfway Home Kennel in West Los Angeles and in 2007, expanded our rescue work to include the overcrowded, underfunded desert shelters. We did this by purchasing a 4.5 acre property in Canyon Country in the Santa Clarita Valley which you know as St. Bonnie’s Sanctuary. At full capacity, we are able to house and care for 150 cats, 75 dogs, and 12 horses. We are committed to finding quality homes for our pets and continuing our mission of rescuing those animals who need us most.
