Watts Project started off as a one-volunteer rescue effort 16 years ago when rescue founder, Amanda Casarez, began helping animals in her hometown of Watts.

On September 21st, 2013, Watts Project became an official 501c3 non-profit organization.
Their volunteers work hand in hand with underserved communities to bring awareness of the importance of spay & neuter and responsible pet ownership.
They provide homeless and low income pet owners with food, veterinary care, and other much needed supplies.
However, Watts Project is more than just a rescue. This organization has created programs; each with a specific goal. Read 2 Paws is a program that teaches children compassion and puts their reading skills to practice by having them read to shelter/rescued animals outside of their sometimes stressful environment. So Fresh ‘N’ So Clean is a community program that provides free grooming services to shelter animals and low income pet owners. Lastly, this rescue is also committed to assisting in reuniting lost and found pets with their owners.
Watts Project is dedicated to rescuing abused, neglected, and injured animals off the streets and shelters of Watts, South LA, and Compton California.

Watts Giving 2017 @ Watts Coffee House

Watts Project and The Compassion Project welcome the community to join us Thanksgiving morning as we provide meals and supplies to homeless citizens and their pets in Watts and South LA.

Everyone faces a time in their lives when they are down on their luck and we’d like to give some of them that extra boost they may need this time of year. You never know the difference a warm blanket or a bag of dog/cat food can make to someone who just needs a helping hand.
This year we are expecting up to 300 people to attend and benefit from this event. Therefore, we need your help!

We are beginning to collect donations for any of the items listed on our wish list.
We are also in need of volunteers to join us Thanksgiving morning and help us distribute meals and supplies to our Watts & South LA homeless community and their pets at the event site and nearby streets.

Please indicate in the note section: Wattsgiving and the item your donation is for.

Fried chicken, sub sandwiches, chips, canned soda, macaroni salad, bread rolls, apples/oranges (fruits), bottled water, cookies or other snacks, paper plates, napkins, forks.
