Rescue and Rehoming

Although rescue, rehoming and adoption is not our main focus, we do find ourselves involved in these areas while doing other important animal welfare work. BAF works with Los Angeles County/City Animal Shelters that service areas where we focus our programs, as well as partners with humane pet stores and other rescue organizations to help pets in urgent need.

Interested in adopting a new pet? Consider these incredible animals available for adoption at the Downey Shelter. Don’t see who you’re looking for? We’ve compiled a wealth of additional resources to help in your search.

Here are some rescue, rehoming and adoption stories to warm your heart.
