Karma Rescue is looking for volunteers to join our family as Guardian Angels. Karma Rescue saves at-risk dogs from the high kill Los Angeles area shelters. Karma provides each dog a new beginning and finds them safe and suitable permanent homes through adoption, advocacy and education.

The Guardian Angel program is like a Big Brother/Big Sister program for our rescue dogs. A Guardian Angel holds an integral role in the rescue process by being a special friend and companion to a rescue animal. By being a Guardian Angel you are providing a canine companion the extra attention and love that he/she longs for until placed in a permanent home. During the transition phase rescued dogs require constant emotional support and exercise. A Guardian Angel must provide a nurturing atmosphere that includes exercise, but most importantly love; it takes a special person who can provide all of those for a rescued dog until a permanent home is found. Some dogs may also require special attention, such as increasing weight or strength, socialization, trust building, etc. Guardian Angels can also contribute immensely in placing rescued dogs in appropriately matched homes by observing their dog's personality traits. This information is vital in placing dogs in the right home.
