I have seen enough estate planning nightmares to put into perspective the real human nature of the masses.

Lacee BouvierThere are so many happy faces here at our animal sanctuary I shudder to think of what would have happened to them all if we weren’t here. And what will happen to the others when you and I are no longer around?

That’s why estate planning is so important.

I asked our lawyer what to do and he suggested that if D.E.L.T.A. is a beneficiary of your trust, you can send it to him for comments. Most lawyers have never seen the abuses that we have seen for decades, so he knows how to prevent them with proper language.

Estate Planning

These angels have an amazing ability to blossom when they get proper food and medical care . . . and love.

Hercules is 8-years-old now.

DELTA Rescue Animal Super Sanctuary

People keep asking about our Hercules.

You can see that he’s over most of his terrible childhood nightmares . . . . Herc has become this shiny coated, happy dog!

As you can see in the photo below – his first three years were miserable, culminating in a deadly bout with mange, tick fever, and a painfully broken leg. He was barely clinging to life when Leo first saw him.

Saving these animals from certain death is our mission.

The day Hercules was rescued

“I also want you to know how truly grateful I am that with your help, I am able to make the difference in the lives of these remarkable animals. They all would have died, unknown to the world, if it weren’t for people like you . . . hearing their cry and taking action with your pen. Hercules would not have lasted another day.” — Leo Grillo

Actor gives home to abandoned pets

Nearly 35 years ago, Leo Grillo thought he could get people to stop dumping dogs and cats in the forests and deserts of Southern California.

He discovered quickly that wasn’t going to happen. There seems to be no end to the number of animals he finds discarded on the side of the road.

“It sucks the life out of me. It’s very, very painful,” he said.

Grillo promised every unwanted animal that crossed his path that he would keep it safe and do all he could to keep it happy and healthy for life. He set up DELTA (Dedication & Everlasting Love to Animals) Rescue to keep that promise, and today, with 1,500 dogs, cats and horses, it is the largest no-kill, care-for-life sanctuary in the nation for abandoned pets.

The sanctuary sits on 115 hilltop acres in western Los Angeles County and has an annual budget of $8 million and about 50 employees. On the grounds are a state-of-the-art hospital, a full-time veterinarian and its own fire department.

The sanctuary, which was founded in 1979, was and still is one of the few care-for-life sanctuaries for domestic animals in the United States.

Grillo, an actor, was driving through the Angeles National Forest in 1979 when he found the first dog he would save — an abandoned, malnourished Doberman-Labrador he named Delta. The two were on a hike in the forest later that year when they found 35 abandoned dogs. Thousands would follow.

Dr. Gaylord Brown met Grillo in 1985 when the actor brought in a dog that had been hit by a car. Brown said he told Grillo how much it would cost to treat the dog.

“I was shocked by his readiness to say ‘Go ahead, go ahead. [Read more…]
