All about D.E.L.T.A Rescue!
Located in the high desert area of Los Angeles, this 115-acre mountain top ranch is surrounded by rolling hills and is beautifully landscaped. It is truly a haven for the animals lucky enough to have crossed paths with its founder.
The dog and cat residents of the Super Sanctuary, were all personally rescued in the wild by Leo Grillo, founder and president of DELTA Rescue. Abandoned, sick and slowly starving, they were days away from certain death.
But at the Super Sanctuary, it is the joy of a rich and happy new life that greets the rescued animals. . . days filled with good food, playtime and the knowledge that they are not only safe but greatly loved. Learn more. . .
About The D.E.L.T.A Rescue Founder – Leo Grillo
Leo Grillo is an actor and a passionate conservationist and animal advocate, and is considered an expert in the field of animal rescue by US county, state and federal agencies.
“Animals are people to me” says founder, Leo Grillo. “And as such, we will not condone the disposing of pets any more than the disposing of children.” And thus, D.E.L.T.A. Rescue is the only organization that absolutely refuses to accept animals from the public when they want to give them up. Instead, D.E.L.T.A. Rescue became the first no-kill, care-for-life organization in the world, and rescues only animals that are abandoned in the wilderness.
Being the first care-for-life facility, D.E.L.T.A. Rescue does not adopt out its rescued animals to the public. “I’d rather not be a hero, adopting out our animals and STEALING homes away from animals in the pound – wonderful animals who will be killed only because they can’t find new homes”, says Leo Grillo.
D.E.L.T.A. Rescue receives no help from the government and relies solely on donor contributions. Being closed to the public, only supporters may tour the Sanctuary at our scheduled donor only tours. Learn more. . .
The History of D.E.L.T.A Rescue
How We Got Here And Where We’re Going!
On a fateful trip to Bakersfield, he spotted a black Doberman off to the side of the road in the Angeles National Forest. It was the dog from his dream! Realizing the magnificent creature had been abandoned, Leo performed his first rescue, not yet fully aware how this action would affect his life for many years to come. He named the dog Delta, which means change and change is what he brought to Leo Grillo. Learn more. . .
