The little rescue with a big heart

K9 Kismet believes in the ideology of quality over quantity. Our primary mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and find loving, permanent homes for homeless dogs; primarily dogs in shelters at-risk of euthanasia and dogs whose owners can no longer care for them. We believe in compassionate rescues where we know the dog is on borrowed time and likely to be overlooked or deemed less adoptable due to age, health, emotional state or breed. We ensure all animals we take into our rescue, regardless of individual needs, are cared for with love and compassion for the duration of their lives. Our secondary mission is to help pets stay in their homes by offering pet owners assistance, when funds allow, with medical care, food and other supplies.

Remember @lbanimalcare Miss Bonnie Parker #A694234 , the 12-year-old stray velvet grandma on the “At Risk” list due to her long list of medical issues? Well, the day after we posted her, we learned that an owner had surfaced. The shelter would need time to see how that would play out, but we didn’t want to sit idly by while Granny Parker needed urgent care. We were lucky enough to find a medical foster (that rare, endangered species) so we were able to assume the role of interim caretaker right away.

There’s a lot of work to be done to get this little senior back on her feet (literally), so we’re thrilled to announce that, as of 5 p.m. today, she was deemed an official member of the K9 Kismet pack! (Not that she hasn’t been an honorary member, enjoying the pampering her fosters have given her all week, complete with ointment and booties for her beleaguered feet.)

💕Rescuing Miss Bonnie Parker has been an extra special labor of love for us. A year ago this week, we lost our friend, K9 Kismet foster, and fellow bully breed advocate Lauren Davis. We wanted to find a way to honor Lauren’s memory on the anniversary of her passing. In partnership with her mom (@lizzzeroo), we decided that rescuing a senior pittie was the best way to do that. Lauren always welcomed dogs who were a little rough around the edges with open arms. We’ll never forget the day we spoke to Lauren about fostering Old Man Milton. When asked if she’d like to meet him first, she whipped out, “Sometimes you just gotta do a solid for an old man.” OMM landed himself a loving foster that day and we found a kindred spirit.

Thank you to all the generous people who answered the call for pledges to help Miss Bonnie Parker. Consider this the green light to officially turn those into donations. 😁 We already have medical bills in her name, so there’s no donation too small.

K9 Kismet -93- August 24 2019


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!


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!



Contribute to the K9Kismet cause! 100% of your donations goes towards the medical and living costs of dogs in our rescue and within the community. With your help, we can give these dogs the chance they so desperately need!
