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 public charity organization that works to advocate for dogs in need through fostering, adoption, humane education, and community outreach.  We hope  to build a compassionate community that seeks to strengthen the human-dog bond.

Specifically, we enhance of lives of dogs by:

  • being a New Hope Partner for LA City shelters and pulling vulnerable dogs out of the shelter
  • fostering dogs & finding forever homes
  • redistributing food, supplies, & equipment to rescues, shelters
  • providing monetary donations to shelters & rescues
  • educating society on how to humanely handle dogs without the use of psychological or physical intimidation




Thank you for visiting our site.  With your help, we can really make a difference.  

About Us

W inston was adopted through Love Leo Rescue in 2017. He was part of a six poodle-mix 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!

R upert 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 endured several bouts of Giardia but with proper medical care, he made it through. Rupert's adult teeth unfortunately didn't grow in properly but that doesn't stop him from living his life! Rupert is a loyal, loving, and amazing companion.

A rchy 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 able to play with other dogs and humans, rolling over for belly rubs and bringing over toys to play tug-of-war. He always loved puppies and was the best for puppy socialization! Archy and his incredible transformation is the reason why we work with animals.

E stelle 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 was the most sweet tempered, affectionate dogs.  We had the honor of loving her for 2 years.

We are WRARE

WRARE represents each member of the Wiese family.

Eric and Rashi Wiese are the television hosts of the Emmy-winning series CBS Lucky Dog seasons 8, 9 and 10, where they utilized the WRARE Foundation to pull dogs out of the shelter. They are also co-owners of Happy Puppy L.A., a Los Angeles based company that provides personalized dog care, 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.

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.

E nzo is a Belgian Malinois adopted from Love Leo Rescue in 2020.  He was surrendered by his original owners at 6 months of age because they weren't able to give him the attention he deserved.  Enzo never saw the outside of his backyard and was terrified of the outside world.  Since his adoption, he has shown his true personality - he is the most loving, goofy dog.  He thrives off of daily mental and physical stimulation and we love working with him to teach him new tricks!
