Recycled Pets Rescue

After learning the tragic statistics that over 75% of
the pets at animal shelters would spend their last
days on cement floors, with their lives ending in
Randi Berger founded Recycled Pets
Randi was at the forefront of Southern
California's animal rescue craze in the 1980s and
began taking 100-200 dogs a year out of these
high-kill public shelters. After being saved, the dogs
were then vet checked, treated for any illnesses,
altered, groomed, and, most importantly, housed
cage free, in private homes as family members until
their new perfect forever families were found. Soon
after, Randi pioneered a concept that was foreign in
her area...open house adoptions where pets
needing homes were shown at high traffic locations.
Recycled Pets began inviting other rescues to these
adoption events and soon this concept became a
successful, mainstream approach to placing
homeless pets.
