For the last three years, Brittany Fraser, 30, has saved the lives of more than 100 animals.
Fraser said she plucks the animals off the street, gets them medical care if they need it and then finds them homes.
“It’s a lot of work. It’s a lot of love, and a lot of poop, but we love it. It’s very rewarding and a lot of vet bills, but we make it work,” she said. “Sometimes it takes about two weeks to find a home and sometimes two years, but we just work on one life at a time.”
Rescuing animals is a part-time job for Fraser. Her career is with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department working for the parks bureau, which gives her plenty of opportunity to come across lost and roaming strays.
She has found mostly dogs and cats, but on occasion she’s also rescued rabbits, a raccoon and a turtle.
Her passion for animals is rubbing off on others. Now her co-workers are stepping in and alerting her when they see a stray instead of ignoring the animal as they may have done in the past. She married one of those co-workers, who is now co-owner of Brick Animal Rescue.
“Whatever it takes, whether it’s 6 in the morning or midnight, if there’s a dog out there that needs our help we’re going to do it,” Nicholas Resendez, Fraser’s husband, said.
Laws prevent Fraser from keeping all the animals she rescues at home so she boards some of them at the All Star Pet Resort in Torrance.
“She’s always very happy and very giving and really has her eye on the prize on getting these dogs adopted,” said Kristina Bellino with All Star Pet Resort.
