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.

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.

All the best to your rescue!

Donated! Best wishes to you and the pups!

After being held at the shelter for 14 months as evidence in a court case, we are happy to report our boys, Chuck and Copper (FKA: Kaiju and Clipper) are thriving in foster care with our friends @thedankdogranch ❤️

Chuck and Copper are smart boys who learn new things quickly. They are good in the car, good in the bath, and perfect in their crates. Both boys enjoy playing, training and sunbathing at the ranch. Chuck loves to hug. Copper loves to learn new tricks. The boys are healing, happy, and thanks to our friends @justfoodfordogs both have reached a healthy weight.

After everything Chuck and Copper experienced at the shelter, we had a feeling they might need a little extra TLC to help get them back on track. Thankfully, we knew the perfect folks for the job, Kassandra and Miguel at The Dank Dog Ranch. Kassandra and Miguel have experience rehabilitating working breed dogs. Like minded in our core values, we knew we could do right by Chuck and Copper if we worked together, so we mapped out a plan for the first ever #KismetDankDogCollab save. Kassandra and Miguel will work with the boys to get them ready to find their happily-ever-afters and we will supply them with the tools they need to make that happen. Teamwork makes the dream work.

Chuck and Copper have had their basic vetting. Both boys are in good health, but as we often see in shelter dogs that haven’t had regular preventative care, both desperately need a dental. With the generous discount their vet offered, we are looking at about $1,500 total for both boys.

If you’d like to make a tax-deductible donation to help us give Chuck & Copper the smiles they deserve, we sure would appreciate it.

Levi is a good boy who loves people and all that goes into being part of the family. He’s affectionate, cuddly, and–quite honestly–hasn’t gotten the message that he’s not a lapdog. He’s going to find a way to snuggle close and lay his giant dome on your lap. Here’s to hoping you went to the bathroom recently or have zero things left to do in the day because–as you will tell yourself–only a monster would get up from under his big, doting eyes. He’s also a pro-sleeper through the night. You may have to rustle him for breakfast, versus the other way around. Levi enjoys getting out-and-about to smell all the smells and meet all the people. He’s rebuilding his stamina after being found as an emaciated stray with an abdominal blockage, but he’s already showing all kinds of pep in his step on walks and mini-excursions. If you like to mix up your exercise routine, Levi is great in the car, always eager to jump in the back seat and see the sights. He also lights up around a hose and a ball. Levi would do well in a home with kids, other dogs, or even as the only dog. House-trained, curious, smart, tolerant, and motivated by treats and praise, he’s going to make an adopter very happy.

If you think he might be the one for you, fill out the application today! k9kismet.org/adoption-application
