The little rescue with a big heart

Our primary mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and find loving, permanent homes for homeless dogs, specifically dogs in shelters at-risk of euthanasia and dogs whose owners can no longer care for them. We believe in compassionate rescue when the dog is enduring inhumane living conditions or likely to be deemed less adoptable due to age, health, emotional state, or breed. We ensure that all the dogs we take into our rescue, regardless of individual needs, are cared for with love and compassion for the duration of their lives.

K9 Kismet Dog Rescue

Kismet Alum Ivy and her parents are having a blast on their cross-country road trip. They are stopping at a bunch of cool places on their way to visit family in Washington DC: The Tucumcari Historical Museum, the Johnny Cash Museum, the Tina Turner Museum, and lots of wineries and outdoor eateries. Ivy’s mom said she was a big hit at the Johnny Cash Museum. We’re told, at one point, the line to meet her was longer than the line to get into the exhibit.

To the shelter volunteers that offer long-stay shelter dogs the one-on-one attention they need to keep hope alive and our supporters who allow us to pull at-risk dogs, thank you! Without all of you, Ivy wouldn’t have been given this second chance to live such an enriching life.

Happy News!!!

When it comes to Monday in all its Mondayness, #K9KismetClark wants you to know that he feels you.

He also wants to let you know that Tuesday probably won’t be much better so it’s best you just ditch work and stay home to snuggle with your dog. If you don’t have a dog (or have room for one more), Clark would like be considered for the job.

Sweet Boy

Is Clark up for adoption is so can u send out details? Please

As we near the end of the week, we’re asking you to help us put the “Yay” in Friyay. At the risk of sounding like beggars (let’s be real, we are what we are), we want to humbly ask you to spare a dollar. That might sound silly. After all, even the “99 Cents Only” store is likely going to change its name to “99 Cents Only If You Have a Time Machine.” In 2024, a buck doesn’t buy you much, but if every one of our loyal followers (we have 28k of them between Facebook and Instagram) pitched in a single dollar, we could really do a happy dance.

Here are some dogs in our care who wouldn’t turn up their nose at a single dollar donation. They’re just happy to be a K9 Kismet Pack Member:

▪️Desi, being treated for a gnarly upper respiratory infection.

▪️Ten-week-old Dottie, surrendered due to grand mal seizures. (Neurology appointment upcoming.)

▪️Charlie, with his recent mass removal surgery and biopsy.

▪️Chuck and Copper, who are in need of dentals.

Send $1.00 this FriYAY via:

Zelle: donate@k9kismet.org

PayPal: donate@k9kismet.org

Venmo: @k9kismet (business tab)

Foster

Join our team of volunteers to help us train, rehabilitate, and foster the most needy animals. Every dog fostered provides the opportunity to rescue another. We provide the food and medical assistance; you provide the love and care!

Adopt

Provide a forever home for one of our wonderful dogs. From the moment we pull a dog off the streets or from the shelter, our dream is for them to end up with a loving family of their own. Rescue pets make the best pets!
