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!

Just like his namesake, Merle was born and raised in California. Easy to do when you’re just a couple months old. That’s where the similarities end.

Now named Georgie, we’re pretty sure he won’t be following Merle’s footsteps into trouble with the law and sad country songs. Rather, he’ll be the light of the party and get into mischief with his fur sister Calliope! Forever!

Congratulations, Georgie, on finding your happy ever after! We can’t wait to hear about your adventures.

A few weeks ago, Asher was feeling under the weather. With his cancer, red flags are always immediately raised when he’s not feeling well. Fortunately, he’s feeling much better. In fact, he’s feeling good enough to host some friends for a night with #cookingwithasher

The problem is, he can’t decide what to make. He and his sous chef want to know…

What are favorite recipes for a night in with friends? Post below so Asher can have some ideas!

Dog Stew! That’s stew for dogs, not of dogs! My basic recipe was 1.25 lbs ground Turkey, 2 lbs frozen peas and carrots, 2 lbs brown rice, big can of tuna in oil, a few eggs, sometimes chicken livers.

Milton said ground duck!

Saylan Orng Miyake you probably can give Asher some doggy recipes!!

A few years ago, two friends went to the shelter together. They both adopted a dog. Over the years, they were wonderful dog parents to two amazing dogs. Until loss was felt. One of the dogs passed a couple years ago; the other earlier this year.

Having room in their hearts to love again, yesterday, both friends adopted dogs. We posted Rocky’s announcement yesterday on his 3 year rescue anniversary.

Today, we’re thrilled to announce Ivy. Ivy, the momma of the 7 pups left crated outside, has found her new life. She is helping heal a heart while having her heart healed in return. She will never know the emptiness of being unwanted again. She is home. Forever.

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!
