What is our mission. George’s Pack is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness and support for charities that benefit children and animals that do not have permanent homes.
When we started. George’s Pack was established in November 2009.
Why we started. The inspiration for starting George’s Pack came from the adoption of a 2-year old rescue dog named George from the Lange Foundation. It is heartbreaking that 3-4 million innocent, sweet, caring animals like George are euthanized every year. To address this problem, many animal rescue organizations exist as “no kill” shelters to provide these animals a chance at a life and a loving home.
Many of these rescue shelters refer to their animals as orphans. This reminded us of the many children who also do not have permanent homes or parents that are active in their lives. In
How you can help. You can help raise money for George’s Pack through our recycling program or by simply making a donation through our website. 100% of the money goes directly to charities that fit our mission, including the Lange Foundation and CARRY (Coaltion for at risk youth).
Who is George. George is a 6-year old Lhasa Apso mix who was rescued by Gillian Lange (founder of the Lange Foundation) from the South Central Los Angeles Pound and subsequently adopted from the Lange Foundation in 2007. He is a brown-eyed, smoke colored, 21 pound, gentle creature with an underbite and flipped tail. Like many dogs, George lives in the now and is eternally optimistic about his next walk or treat. Careful, he can quickly charm you with his soulful eyes! Most importantly, George is the inspiration behind George’s Pack.
