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.

Copper is a handsome, active, somewhat reserved 4.5-year-old Ridgeback- Shepherd mix. He’s house-trained, crate-trained, does well in the car, and is pretty easy on leash. Copper is a smart boy who learns new things quickly (like how to run alongside a bike). He loves people and has been great around other dogs of various sizes. His tolerance for cats is unknown at this time, so we’d like to find foster placement in a cat-free home or a home where cats can be kept separate.

No fosters surfaced for Copper or Chuck, so now they’re living with trainer @robertvillaneda while we continue the search for each of them. In the meantime, they’re in good hands and are getting the opportunity to fine tune various skills with his guidance, but boarding is expensive and not the home environment we’d like them to have after the pain they endured in the shelter system. If you live in the Southern California area and have space in your heart & home, please raise your hand for one of these deserving boys. They are not bonded and do not need to share a foster home.

As you can imagine, finding new fosters for two different dogs at the same time is an incredibly daunting task, so we really need your help. Please share this post, tell a friend, or consider fostering yourself! Remember, we pay ALL expenses (food, crate, bedding, toys, medical care, etc.), so taking a dog into your home costs you nothing!

Chuck is a fun, active three-year-old Labrador-Shepherd mix. He’s house-trained, crate-trained, does well in the car, and is pretty easy on leash. Chuck is a smart, happy-go-lucky boy who learns new things quickly. He absolutely LOVES people and has been great around other dogs of all sizes. His tolerance for cats is unknown at this time, so we’d like to find foster placement in a cat-free home or a home where cats can be kept separate.

K9 Kismet Pippi is very proud of you. You made it to the end of the week!

We’re happy to announce that Pippi no longer needs bandaging after being hit by a car as a stray. She’s still a little skittish around passing cars (you wouldn’t blame her if you saw the condition we found her leg in), but she’s getting less and less fearful every day. It won’t be long now before she can ditch the protective stocking. Like her namesake, she’s a fearless and incredibly smart young lady and we’re excited to get her into the wonderful forever-home she deserves.

A big shoutout to @zoomroomlb for donating their facilities and time to her, and to @justfoodfordogs for donating her delicious meals. It’s partnerships like these that allow us to focus our funds on medical expenses and supplies.

If you have a few bucks to spare, we can always use the help. As a 100% volunteer-run, 501(c)(3) organization, there’s no donation too small. Every dollar directly impacts the dogs in our care and gives us the funds we need to take in the next dog who needs us.

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.
