~ D.E.L.T.A. Rescue ~

They said I was crazy, back in 1979 when I started rescuing abandoned dogs and cats in the wilderness and promised to love and care for them for the rest of their lives....instead of the terrible alternative.In 1979, Leo Grillo began rescuing animals with only a tiny shelter and small runs for exercise. Since nobody wanted to adopt them, he treated them as his own. He learned veterinary medicine from books and did his own fecal analysis and skin scrapings for parasites to save precious funds for necessities. 

He continued rescuing animals and his small shelter turned into a SuperSanctuary where they house over 1,500 abandoned animals. They have dozens of catteries, indoor and outdoor enclosed and every two dogs has a huge yard and a stuccoed straw bale house to live and play in. Leo and his associates actually go into the wilderness and save these poor, starving animals and give them a home and companionship for the rest of their lives.  Today they have two fully functioning hospitals on site which saves an enormous amount of money versus hiring outside veterinary services.

The animals recued by D.E.L.T.A. lives in the sanctuary for the rest of their lives with the best food, shelter and veterinary care possible. For those who question this policy - please read, in Leo's own words, why D.E.L.T.A. Rescue does not adopt out its residents:

Dear Leo:

You don’t adopt, but wouldn’t it be better for the animals to have a home where they are only one of a few instead of one in a thousand? SK, Demming, WA

In an ideal world, you would be right. I used to adopt. Here’s why we’re care-for-life now ....

20 years ago I thought lack of adoptions was our problem. I rescued animals who were dumped in the forest, and who would have died. It took me a long time to rescue each one. Then, at a kennel where I housed them, after much advertising and tens of exhausting hours of telephone screening, people would come out to adopt a dog.

I was good at finding the best people. I even wrote a report, and later a book and video on adopting. I probably adopted over 200 dogs before I realized what was happening ....

First, every time I adopted a dog, the people who took our dog were actually looking for a pet. They were headed for the pound, but came to us instead. So, I adopted a dog and felt like a hero. But another dog died at the horrible pound, in his place. I accomplished nothing.

Then, case by case, I discovered that most of the people I adopted to brought the dogs back anywhere from a few weeks to 8 years later! And some had them “put to sleep” instead of returning them to us ... THAT made me nuts! Very few people kept their dogs a whole natural

Further, the dogs I rescued had problems. They became frightened of humans while they were out there ... and rightly so ... because many people tried to injure or kill them. So, adopting them was totally out of the question because of their fear, the real lack of good homes ... and the false heroics of quoting adoption numbers to donors, while wonderful, innocent beings were being killed at the pounds anyway, because there weren’t enough homes to go around.
