But the world of rescue can often take a turn for the strange and surreal.
While driving with the chicken and the pit bull, Ching came across a very intoxicated man kicking a Chihuahua on the street.
"Of course, he stops and pulls over," White recalls.
Hank got out of the car too. Ching demanded that the man surrender the Chihuahua. And the man, rather than face animal abuse charges, complied.
"And then, he turned the next corner and there's a Doberman running through the streets," White continues, with a laugh.
There was still room in the car that would eventually make its way back to the rescue's headquarters in Sherman Oaks, California.
"So he comes back with a chicken, a Doberman, a Chihuahua and Hank in his car," White says.
