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

It’s hard to find a pic where Pippi isn’t grinning from ear to ear! From being a stray that was hit by a car to loving the good life in rescue, we’re guessing she knows she has it good. We can’t continue to offer dogs sanctuary and a path back to their forever home without supporters like you.

🐾Five dollars may not seem like a lot, but we make every dollar count. Please donate for Pippi who is currently undergoing a spay surgery. While she’s under anesthesia, she’s also getting the “spare” dewclaw removed on her back leg where one is normally not found. Sticking out and floppy, it’s a trouble maker that’s been begging to be banished.

Yesterday, we set up shop at the Google campus in Playa Vista for the Midweek Mutt Match Event.

🐾 Kismet Pack Members Willa & Pippi got to meet dog lovers at a place that allows employees to take their dogs to work. It’s always a good day when we get to meet new potential fosters, adopters, and supporters so we can keep doing the work that we do.

Looking for your next family member or want to foster? Visit www.k9kismet.org

No room at the inn? Consider making a tax deductible donation. As a 100% volunteer-run organization, every dollar goes directly to the care of our current or future pack members.

Please join us in welcoming our newest pack member, Ezekiel!

Two weeks ago Long Beach Animal Care Services started receiving calls about an emaciated pup out wandering the streets. He was scared, alone, and on the move so animal control had a hard time locating him. Thankfully a kind community member took time out of their day to secure him and bring him to the shelter for safe keeping.

Ezekiel arrived at the shelter in really rough shape. He is emaciated (weighing in at only 28 pounds), most of his bones are protruding, he has diarrhea, and except for a tiny bit on the tip of his ears, he is completely hairless. Ezekiel has clearly been through some sh*t, but he is sweet, gentle, eager for affection, and ready to start his healing journey.

As you can imagine, Ezekiel is going to need medical care and the right diet to help him recover. Thanks to our amazing friends at Just Food For Dogs he will receive the highest quality food possible! As for his medical care, we could really use YOUR help.

If you’d like to honor a pledge or make a tax-deductible donation to help Ezekiel heal we sure would appreciate it! As an all-volunteer rescue every dollar we receive will go directly to his care.

We say it all the time but it deserves repeating… fosters saves lives. Thanks to our friends. @casacontrolledchaos @brennared and @bruce_zebal we were able to say YES! to Ezekiel.

If you feel inspired by his story and would like to help us help other dogs like him and his fellow pack members, please consider applying to become a K9 Kismet foster. With your help, we can save more lives.

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.

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.
