Rescue Round Up
Posted on Jan 20, 2016 , 0 comments
We had a very exciting 2015. Looking back, we opened two new locations in The Valley, remodeled our original Healthy Spot in Santa Monica, and threw a ton of amazing pawties throughout the year! But one of the best things that happened at Healthy Spot came from you, our Healthy Spot family! Every time you checked out at one of our stores you were asked if you wanted to Round Up For Rescues and through your generosity your contributions helped raise over $37,000 for animals in need.
Your Round Ups have helped non-profit organizations with operating costs, helped pay for food, vaccinations, medical aid, spaying, neutering, flea and tick medications, and comfort items like blankets and beds for pets in need.
Here’s a look at all the our rescue partners you helped support in 2015!
Dachshund Rescue of Los Angeles
Dachshund Rescue of Los Angeles, a 501(c)(3) charity under the Pitman Animal Rescue Foundation, aims to reduce the number of dachshunds being euthanized in local shelters and provide well-educated and committed homes for homeless dogs.

An all volunteer 501(c)(3) charity and educational organization dedicated to the preservation, protection and proper management of wolves in the wild and in captivity.
Wags and Walks

Forte Animal Rescue
A 501(c)(3) charity that works with their community to cultivate the human-animal bond through educational programs and activities.
Fix Long Beach
Fix Long Beach fights against overpopulation of animals in shelters by offering spay and neuter services to pets in Long Beach. They hope to eliminate the chance that more homeless animals will end up in shelters in and around Long Beach.
What’s Up Dog LA
What's Up Dog! LA is a 100% volunteer run, 501(c)(3) nonprofit dog rescue whose mission is to place destitute animals from high kill shelters with loving Forever Families. They also promote spaying and neutering pets to minimize pet overpopulation issues.
NKLA (No-Kill Los Angeles) is an initiative led by Best Friends Animal Society that brings together passionate individuals, city shelters and an entire coalition of animal welfare organizations to end the killing of dogs and cats in shelters throughout Los Angeles by the year 2017.
The Rescue Train
The Rescue Train into a unique, non-profit 501(c) 3, no kill organization supported by hundreds of creative and dedicated volunteers. Their mission is to reduce the number of animals entering shelters by doing hands-on rescue work and creating unique programs and solutions; including their highly successful "Trained for Life" program where shelters dogs are completely obedience trained prior to adoption, and their annual "Race for the Rescues" which funds and supports many other important animal welfare organizations.
L.A. Love & Leashes
In September 2016 we welcomed L.A. Love & Leashes into Healthy Spot Santa Monica. Healthy Spot has worked closed with L.A Love and Leashes since their inception back in 2011 and has helped them with their mission of saving shelter animals. L.A. Love & Leashes is an adoption space that is 100% dedicated to animals from Los Angeles’ six city animal shelters. Created by the non-profit Friends of L.A. Animal Shelters, L.A. Love & Leashes is located inside Healthy Spot, Santa Monica and reaches large numbers of people who would not otherwise visit our city shelters.
Eloise Dog Rescue
All of their dogs are rescued from high kill shelters and taken directly to their vet. The rescues are given their first set of shots, dewormed, heart worm tested, spayed or neutered, chipped and given antibiotics. They are also given a bath, flea medicine, and a collar with a tag.
Operation Blankets of Love
OBOL is a grassroots, community-driven nonprofit animal welfare and emergency relief organization founded in 2008. Their unique purpose is to improve the well-being and survival of homeless animals and increase chances for survival and adoption with the ultimate aim of eliminating animal homelessness.
Our goal is to raise even more funds to help pets in need in 2016 with your help. Don’t forget to Round Up when you check out every time to shop at Healthy Spot!
