Transparency and accountability are crucial components for us to demonstrate our commitment to honest and responsible philanthropy. We believe our donors have a right to know how their money is spent. Rest assured, your donations go directly toward saving and caring for animals in need. Come visit our Halfway Home Kennel in West Los Angeles and St. Bonnie’s Sanctuary in Canyon Country to see in person what we accomplish with your support. If you have questions on charitable giving, you are always welcome to contact us directly.
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.
Independent Charity Evaluators
Lange Foundation has received a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest and most-utilized independent evaluator of charities.
Lange Foundation does not publish, sell, exchange, rent or otherwise distribute the names of any of our donors unless specifically requested to do so. Nor do we send any mailings, either online or by mail, to our donors or supporters on behalf of other organizations. In addition, we do not share, sell or distribute any aggregated online, personal contact information or demographic information we gather from our website.
We go to extreme lengths to protect our donor’s privacy. By not availing ourselves of the use of mailing houses, our supporters are protected from their practice of selling names to other organizations/companies, etc. In addition, any supporter or donor who would like to opt-out of any mailings, either online or hard copy, may do so by sending an email to email@example.com.
Lange Foundation is able to rescue and care for animals solely because of the generosity of others. Listed below are a few of our friends who have made a commitment to helping us help the animals! We appreciate and are grateful for their continuing support.

Lange Foundation works with city and county shelters, rescuing those on the euthanasia list. We do not take in pets directly from owners and are not legally permitted to accept stray and found animals. Due to the volume of emails and phone calls we receive, we are unable to respond individually to those asking us to accept an animal.
If you have a pet for adoption, please visit our Rehoming a Pet page for suggestions. You may also post your pet for adoption on Courtesy Listings. If you found an animal, please visit the Lost & Found Pets page.
If you have questions on adoptions, donations, or general inquiries, please feel free to contact us. Email is the best way to reach us as we are a small staff and our rescued animals need most of our attention. We do try to return messages within 48 hours. Thank you for your understanding.
