ASICS LA Marathon – March 15, 2015

ASICS LA Marathon

Have you ever entertained the thought of running/walking a marathon in your lifetime? Running a marathon is a completely attainable goal! And the ASICS LA Marathon is the most beautiful and entertaining course in town!! The marathon begins at Dodger Stadium and ends in breezy Santa Monica, mere steps away from the pier; hence “stadium to sea.”

The ASICS LA Marathon is Sunday, March 15, 2015 and now is the time to begin your training regimen. YOU can go from couch enthusiast to marathon finisher! Forte Animal Rescue is happy to help you accomplish this goal while raising much needed funds for saving and caring for our pooches while they await their permanent homes.

Help Us Help Hansel!


We are urgently seeking help with donations for one of our dogs, Hansel. He is diagnosed with lumbosacral spondylosis, which causes severe pain. He now needs an MRI which will cost in the region of $2,000, possibly followed by surgery that could cost around $5,000. We are a nonprofit organization that survives solely on donations and desperately need your help for the medical treatment Hansel needs and deserves.

This is one of the most important roles in rescue because the more fosters, the more lives we can save! Fostering is the ideal living situation for our dogs while they are waiting to find their forever homes. Kennels provide them with the basics such as food, water, a bed and some outside time, but the dogs do not get the one-on-one care and attention they would be receiving in a loving foster home. Fostered dogs become potty-trained, learn commands and how to walk on the leash, all of which make the dog’s adoption far more successful. If you or someone you know can foster one of our dogs please let us know. Forte Animal Rescue provides medical care and supplies if needed (many fosters already have leashes, bowls, etc.). Contact Us For More Information »
