S.T.O.P. Rescue! ! .... Saving Lives !!!
We are a small local rescue working hard to save lives and find homes for orphaned pets in the Tehachapi area.
Non-profit status: APPROVED, State and Federal 501c3 Save Tehachapi's Orphaned Pets est. in 2008.
It is our mission to:
• Create a network of foster homes for abandoned pets
• S.T.O.P. has funded and staffed a foster home for our adoption animals
• Cooperate with current government groups, other humane rescue organizations, and private rescues
• Provide educational programs to schools and the community to help reduce pet over-population
• Rescue stray, abandoned or relinquished animals from the surrounding communities and to rescue animals from Kern County shelters.
Many homeless animals have been abandoned, abused, or neglected, without ever knowing the love of a caring human being. Every day, dogs and cats are euthanized in the overcrowded Kern County area animal shelters.
From the moment S.T.O.P. rescues a dog or cat, we begin changing its life for the better. Each pet is placed in a caring foster home until the right owner is found. During their stay, the pets are evaluated, socialized, and given the loving care they need, prior to adoption. Pets have their basic shots and are spayed/neutered (we actively support spaying and neutering of all companion dogs and cats).
