The little rescue with a big heart

K9 Kismet believes in the ideology of quality over quantity. Our primary mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and find loving, permanent homes for homeless dogs; primarily dogs in shelters at-risk of euthanasia and dogs whose owners can no longer care for them. We believe in compassionate rescues where we know the dog is on borrowed time and likely to be overlooked or deemed less adoptable due to age, health, emotional state or breed. We ensure all animals we take into our rescue, regardless of individual needs, are cared for with love and compassion for the duration of their lives. Our secondary mission is to help pets stay in their homes by offering pet owners assistance, when funds allow, with medical care, food and other supplies.

We are constantly engaging with shelters, rescues, trainers, veterinarians, and even people in the community who just need help with their pets. It isn’t always easy, but it keeps us busy helping improve the world in our own little way…one dog at a time!

Meet, The General.

This strikingly handsome young gentleman commands attention when he walks by but its his sweet, goofy spirit that will capture your heart.

Currently a resident @lbanimalcare (#a668560) The shelter has The General listed as a 67lb. 1 year old Pit Bull mix.

The General L❤VES people! He walks well on leash, sits nicely, takes treats gently and will gladly shake your hand when asked. With proper introductions we believe he would do well in a home with another playful dog his size. In other words this General is definitely ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

For more information or to schedule an appointment to meet The General email Long Beach Animal Care Services at petadopt@longbeach.gov
Tell them K9 Kismet sent you. 😉

Foster

Join our team of volunteers to help us train, rehabilitate, and foster the most needy animals. Every dog fostered provides the opportunity to rescue another. We provide the food and medical assistance; you provide the love and care!

Adopt

Provide a forever home for one of our wonderful dogs. From the moment we pull a dog off the streets or from the shelter, our dream is for them to end up with a loving family of their own. Rescue pets make the best pets!
