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.

It isn’t always easy, but it keeps us busy helping improve the world in our own little way…one dog at a time!

K9 Kismet Dog Rescue

Join us and #K9KismetAce on May 26, 2024 by signing up for an affordable oceanfront 5K, 10K, 10 miler, or half marathon. Love a bulk deal? Commit to THREE events at the same time to get a 15% discount. Ace doesn’t let spina bifida hold him back and wants to encourage you to get out there too!

We can’t do the work we do without our supporters. Last year, High Tide Runs elected K9 Kismet Dog Rescue to be a featured charity for their events and we couldn’t be more grateful for the whopping $9,096 in 2023! A huge thanks to everyone who pitched in and helped us rehabilitate dogs who would’ve likely gone overlooked in the shelter system. This year, the honor is ours again❣️

When people sign up for a race, they’re introduced to K9 Kismet Dog Rescue and encouraged to donate to our cause. As a fully volunteer-run organization, every dollar goes directly to the dogs. There’s no donation too small.

💲🛟💲 We’re sending out an S.O.S.

As we near the end of the week, we’re asking you to help us put the “Yay” in FriYay by donating a dollar. In 2024 a buck doesn’t buy you much, but we’re hoping to get enough of them to put a dent in our medical bills this Week o’ Blue Bully Ear Infections (trademark pending 😅). First Levi, then Charlie, and now presumably Granny Parker, who’s bringing up the rear with an appointment this afternoon.

Please, please, pretty please send a 💲 this FriYAY via …

Zelle: donate@k9kismet.org

PayPal: donate@k9kismet.org

Venmo: @k9kismet (business tab)

K9 Kismet -93- August 24 2019

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.
