Lee Asher grew up in Los Angeles, California with a family of nine animals that he rescued and cared for. Ever since he was a child Asher felt a calling to help animals in need and over the years he has managed to save 16 of them.
During his years Asher would spend time at a local animal shelter immersing himself in the process of rescuing animals. This experience shaped his understanding that his purpose, in adulthood would revolve around rescuing animals and finding them loving homes whenever possible.
In an interview with The Dodo Asher shared that he currently has seven dogs named Yaffa, Molly, Cali, BoBo, Butters, Haven and Lillie. Additionally two cats named Whiskey and Goose have also found their way into his home.
All of these animals were rescued from forms of abandonment. Now live joyous lives as a result.
Asher passionately explained his motivation behind animal rescue by stating;
"The inspiration comes from my love, for dogs and the realization that by saving one dogs life through rescue efforts I am opening doors for other rescued animals to be adopted as well." It's truly a win win situation that fills him with a sense of fulfillment.
