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.

What's New at K9kismet!

Explore our social media to see the kinds of things we’re up to on the daily. 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!

Princess Lula was a resident at @lbanimalcare until she was adopted. Unfortunately, the adoption didn’t last and she was headed back to the shelter.

Until she wasn’t. Because a foster stepped up and @k9kommittee had space for her, heart to take her on, and skills to help her move forward… we were able to say yes! to bring her into our pack.

Today, she’s checking in to show you her skills. She also got a very special visitor… her foster mom!

Princess Lula is not yet available for adoption but keep following us for more updates on our royal guest.

Princess Lulu is training to become adopted into a furever. God bless her foster parent!!

Wonderful

Please share for Lulu.

Through our tears, we can see a most joyous reunion. We see a yellow butterfly guiding a star to the other side of the rainbow.

Old Man Milton left our world today but he ran happily and free of pain into the arms of his rescuer, Lauren. He was her last rescue on this side and her first on the other. What a beautiful picture that is. What peace it offers.

We were fortunate to be witness to the serenity he felt in passing in the arms of love and honored we were chosen to help accompany him in his final moments.

He spent the day being loved and spoiled, in a way we’re sure will continue across that rainbow.

We cannot express in words how much it means to us and to him to have had his human grandma and dad there for him in these last few months and none more so than today. They have truly been a miracle in times when miracles seem to be fairy tales.

Rest well, OMM. We know you were embraced by the best of the best over that rainbow. You are the bestest boy. Always. 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!
