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.

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!

Diesel was a dog that reached out to us and touched our very core. He’s a dog that will forever be present in our hearts. To honor him, we have initiated a #doitfordiesel campaign with our customized shirts.

Two new designs have hit the streets:

One reminds us of our commitment to Diesel in our "Adopt a Shelter Dog" shirt, until all the shelters are empty.

The second, showing our pride for pibbles and true love, in all forms. And love never goes out of season.

Order your Diesel apparel on our Bonfire shop at www.bonfire.com/store/k9-kismet-dog-rescue/

We get a portion of every item sold, so remember, they also make great Father’s Day gifts! Happy shopping and remember… Do It for Diesel

Love Diesels Pittie Pride Shirt.

Great idea!

You’ve all watched and loved Hank from afar. Now is your opportunity to love him up close.

On Wednesday, May 25, Hank needs to be in a new foster. He’s already on his second foster in the magical group of people who helped us have a short term plan when we rescued him. Now, we need a long term foster ASAP.

Hank is the dog every animal seems to love and Hank seems to reciprocate. The vet cat enjoyed him, but he was never let too close. Every dog he’s fostered with has loved him. Every human too. But so far, he has not found long term love.

He needs a place with someone comfortable with medical issues. Someone who loves a shadow. Someone who can give him the home until he crosses the bridge. He’s been rallying and is in good spirits, so we hope long term means many months.

If you’re in LA, Orange or surrounding counties and can give Hank a long term landing, please inquire within. If you can’t foster, please share!

Through thick and thin, through multiple vet appointments, through puppy antics, @kyloren_thegoodboy foster family has been there. Since his rescue, they’ve been lock step with him, building an unbreakable bond.

We saw it. They knew it. And today, we get to officially announce Kylo has turned his foster home into his forever home! His family #fosterfailed big time and couldn’t let this big boy go.

We’re so happy to be able to keep this family together and help another dog find his forever. Happy tails Kylo! We look forward to seeing your lifetime of adventures!

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!
