THE RESCUE TRAIN is a unique, 501(c)3 non-profit, no-kill organization dedicated to eliminating animal suffering and euthanasia through hands-on rescue work, dedication to spay/neuter, education, awareness and support of other rescues groups.
The Rescue Train's largest annual fund-raising event, Race for The Rescues – Los Angeles began nine years ago and has raised $1.7 million dollars. These critical funds allow The Rescue Train, along with many other hard working local animal welfare organizations to continue their life-saving work. The event includes a 5K, a 10K, a Kid's Fun Run and a 1K Dog Walk. Race for The Rescues is the only timed sporting event in Los Angeles and Orange County that directly supports animals in need.
