The Topanga Animal Rescue News Feed (updated as often as possible)
Our focus is always the health and safety of the animals–but sometimes we do get a chance to film or take a few pictures. When we do, we post them here. For every post here, or on our video page or blog, there are many, many rescues for which we have no media.
A funny thing happened on the way to the bees…..
We received a call about a baby great horned owl, blown out of its nest by the high winds. This one was younger than the one below. We stopped on our way and looked it over — it seemed basically healthy but the nest appeared to be at least 60 feet up in a huge pine and this owl was still in its soft baby down–not a fledgeling. This is a very dangerous position, an exposed driveway , so we transported it to rehab. May 3, 2017
Saving the Bees in Calabasas.
Bees are in a very bad way these days and without them so are we. This colony was moving and had parked itself in a motel parking lot. Threatened by a potential visit from an exterminator, we snipped these bees out of the bushes and removed the entire mass to a hive box, then transported it to a new and safer home where they are already thriving. Bees in transit are generally docile–but don’t try this at home– especially not with an active hive. Just give us a call. We love bees. May 3, 2017

Volunteer, Susan Clark working with Local LA County firemen at the site of a house fire (12/2015). Topanga Animal Rescue administered oxygen to the smoke inhalation impacted pups and transported them to a vet hospital.

Domestic Dog and Cats…..
Over population is the biggest cause of homelessness for dogs and cats in America.
Too many animals, not enough homes that can adopt them.
A dog or cat’s life is terminated in a U.S. shelter every 8 seconds!
11,000 shelter dogs and cats die EVERY single day.
Tragically, most of these deaths could be prevented with education and more facilities for the spaying and neutering of pets.
We urge you to spay and neuter your pets and encourage others to do so as well.
Fight to end this ongoing crisis.
