We believe dogs should have a voice.
Dogs have been in the care of humans for thousands of years. By domesticating them, humans have become their primary resource provider. Dogs rely on us for their necessities, which includes shelter, food, clean water, medical care, and last but certainly not least, love. Since we have created a species that depends on us for these necessities, it is our responsibility to provide a voice for them.
The WRARE Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) public charity organization that works to enhance the lives of dogs by
Thank you for visiting our site. With your help, we can really make a difference.
Winston was adopted through Love Leo Rescue in 2017. He was part of a six poodle litter that was living outside in deplorable conditions. The puppies were infested with fleas and turning anemic, but thankfully an amazing human saved them - spending hours washing them and helping to remove each and every flea. We are so thankful to have Winston in our lives. He is the most happy-go-lucky pup ever - full of endless energy and love!
Rupert is a terrier mix, adopted through Rescue Me Pet Foundation in 2015. He was originally found in a dumpster with his sister, in Baja, Mexico. A good samaritan found the puppies and brought them to California for immediate medical treatment. Rupert unfortunately endured several bouts of giardia but with proper medical care, he made it through. Rupert's adult teeth unfortunately didn't come in properly but that doesn't stop him from living his life! Rupert is a loyal, loving, and amazing companion.
Archy is a German Shepherd who was rescued by The Westside German Shepherd Rescue in 2009. Archy has an unfortunate history - he was used as a bait dog for dog fighting during his puppyhood. He endured physical abuse, resulting in behavior issues due to his lack of trust for humans. Eric spent 14 months rehabilitating Archy. Eventually, Archy was soon playing with other dogs, rolling over for belly rubs and going off-leash hiking. He loves puppies and is often used for puppy socialization!
Estelle is a long-haired chihuahua poodle mix, adopted from Love Leo Rescue in 2019. At 3 months of age, she had a scary battle with Parvo and an upper respiratory infection. She has been quite the fighter! Despite her challenges, she is the sweetest puppy - wanting nothing more than to curl up next to other dogs and humans. She is adored by her three older brothers!

WRARE represents each member of our family. Our four rescues Winston, Rupert, Archy, and Estelle, along with their humans Eric and Rashi Wiese.
Eric and Rashi are co-owners of Happy Puppy L.A., a Los Angeles based company that provides personalized dog care as well as in-home private dog training and canine behavior consulting for veterinary practices. Throughout the process of building Happy Puppy L.A., Eric and Rashi always knew they wanted to create an organization that allowed them to give back to animals. In 2018, the WRARE foundation was created as a tribute to their rescue dogs. Given the impact their rescues have made, they wanted to make sure they give back to the same organizations that have brought so much joy into their lives. With the foundation, Eric and Rashi hope to not only provide for animals in need but also hope to educate the public on humane ways to interact and care for animals.
