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

On March 13th, Ivy came back into the fold after her owner unexpectedly passed away. Since fosters are unfortunately few and far between these days, we were forced to seek out alternative placement for her. That was for the best anyway, considering it had been a year and a half since she was adopted. It was important that we reassess her before knowing what type of home she’d thrive in. We reached out to a trusted friend, @robertvillaneda , to help us get to know Ivy again at his board and train facility.

Over two months later, we’re thrilled to announce that Ivy finally landed herself a wonderful foster! This morning Robert transported Ivy to the foster’s home, where he provided a training session and helped her settle in to the new environment. Today marks the day that Ivy is officially back on track to her forever home.

If you’re someone who might want to adopt this 3.5-year-old beauty, here’s what we know so far: Ivy is an incredibly affectionate, medium-energy dog who hasn’t met a human she doesn’t love. She’s house-trained, crate-trained, and good on leash. She likes playing with toys, is smart, cuddly, and eager to please. She is still learning to be confident and comfortable around other dogs so (for now anyway) we believe she would do best as an only-dog or paired with a calm, older male dog about her size.

Stay tuned for more updates on Ivy!

If you’re inspired to foster, we need you now more than ever. Please apply today!

I love Ivy. Her person was one of my best friends. If you’re looking for wonderful dog, this is it.

🚨SOS🚨 Copper (FKA Clipper #A5512829) and Chuck (FKA Kaiju #A5512727) need new foster homes and they need them in two weeks or less!

Two dogs in two weeks is an incredibly daunting task, so we need your help to get them seen! Please #share & #tellafriend, or consider fostering one or these good boys.

Copper and Chuck have been together on the same ranch for the past few months, but they are not bonded and can go into separate homes. They are both fun, active, affectionate, good with people, and other dogs. Their tolerances for cats are unknown at this time, so we’d like to find placement in a cat-free home or a home where cats can be kept separate.

Reminder: K9 Kismet pays ALL foster expenses (food, crate, bedding, toys, medical care, etc.), so taking one of these beautiful boys into your home costs you nothing!

Want to learn more about Chuck or Copper? Please check out their bios at www.k9kismet.org/adoptable-dogs/

Foster

As a foster-based rescue, our primary need is short and long-term fosters. Fostering costs you nothing; we cover all expenses. Whether you’re a seasoned foster who can handle some of our toughest cases, or a first-timer looking to ease into the process, we want to hear from you.

Adopt

By providing a forever home for a dog in rescue, you're helping to free up a foster home, which allows us to help another dog in need. The dogs in our care are fully vaccinated, spayed or neutered (unless medically waived), microchipped, and receive regular wellness exams, preventative treatment, specialty care as needed. If you’re interested in meeting a K9 Kismet pack member, please fill out the adoption application to begin the process.

Panda3

donate

As a 100% volunteer-run organization, your tax-deductible donation goes directly to the dogs in our care. It provides funds for everything from life saving surgeries to ID tags. Every dollar has purpose and is put to work for the dogs we serve. Help us say yes to the next dog in need.
