ANGELS BARK DOG RESCUE

Saving lives to whom no one else gives a chance

Angels Bark Dog Rescue is a boutique 501(c)(3) non-profit tax- exempt organization which was established by Nes Gutman in 2014. While ABDR focuses on rescuing purebred and mixed German Shepherds as well as a variety of other breeds from high kill shelters in the Los Angeles, CA area, ABDR is committed to saving dogs before they are put down, many on their very last day. ABDR often saves seniors, dogs with special needs, and dogs with behavioral issues. All ABDR’s rescues initially go to foster homes to help them adjust and transition from shelters to a household environment. They receive medical care and training as needed. The rescue has been enormously successful, saving dozens of incredible dogs, as a result of its dedicated network of volunteers, who share in ABDR’s commitment to rescue these amazing animals.
