If all the people of Southern California are our family, then our dogs are certainly our best friends. That’s why we have partnered with the Westside German Shepherd Rescue. The Westside German Shepherd Rescue is a non profit 501(c)3 no-kill rescue that relocates all types of german shepherds from high kill shelters to loving homes.
The rescue was founded in 2002 in the back of a veterinarian hospital. In those days, there was just a handful of volunteers and only 7 dogs. Over the course of fifteen years, the Westside German Shepherd Rescue grew to be one of the largest rescues in the Los Angeles Area. Since 2012, the Westside German Shepherd rescue has saved over 12,000 dogs!
The amazing volunteers who help run the rescue are true animal-lovers that believe a little extra love and care will help them be the happiest dogs that they can be in their new homes. All volunteers have developed strong, personal relationships with the dogs. This one-on-one relationship allows volunteers to find a new home that is perfect for any dog’s one-of-a-kind personality.
A Breath of Fresh Air
As a non-profit organization, the Westside German Shepherd Rescue depends on the help of the community. That’s why we at Home Comfort USA decided to offer our expertise to provide a unique service.
If you have ever been to an animal rescue, you are sure to have noticed how hot and stuffy it can be inside the building. A lack of ventilation and air flow causes the air to “sit”. This allows bacteria, allergens, and dirt to settle into the carpets, furniture, and walls. This is not only uncomfortable but also detrimental to the health of the dogs.
In 2016, Home Comfort USA equipped the Westside German Shepherd Rescue with one of our top of the line air conditioning systems. And just like the volunteers at the Westside German Shepherd Rescue, Home Comfort USA would not be satisfied until our animal friends had the absolutely highest quality of living.
To maximize the efficiency of Westside German Rescue’s new air conditioning system, we took the additional step to provide them with a high quality air scrubber. An air scrubber is a type of filtration system capable of removing particles, gasses, and even odors from the air.
In the past year alone, the hundreds of dogs living in the rescue have experienced less sinus problems, allergies, and illness. Both dogs and humans alike have also appreciated the relief from the hot Southern California sun during the summertime!
Happier Dogs and Happier Humans
The community at the Westside German Shepherd Rescue is strong, dedicated, and giving. Naturally, Home Comfort USA wanted to be a part of it. We both share a love of these athletic, charming, and intelligent German Shepherds and want the loving families of Southern California to enjoy them as well. We are proud of our work in increasing air quality to provide a cleaner, safer, and happier environment for these beautiful animals.
