Mission Statement

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.

Description

Sometimes when I look around the world I can't help but see how things could be better. Same is true when I look into the eyes of a dog, or any animal. I started loving animals from the day I was born. My mom always let me have pets growing up; Birds, hamsters, rats, cats, dogs, and even a chicken. To me of course these were not my pets but were my babies. If I could put a diaper on my chicken I would have. Growing up with animals helped me find a special place in my heart for their needs. One in particular was my dog Rufus. I adopted him when I was in college. Everyone thought I was crazy to get a dog at such an inopportune time of my life. Rufus and I did everything together, we never left each other's side. We walked, talked, sang, played, laughed, cried, you name it. Raising him on my own was one of the greatest moments of my life. It humbled me, it taught me to give unconditionally. Now every morning when I look into his sweet eyes I think of how many more wonderful animals like Rufus there are out there. After being involved with Rescue for some time, I see it everyday. I walk into the shelters and see those same eyes as Rufus has. I see the longing and the love these animals have for us. I see how they can add so much to our lives. As we all know not all animals have this chance to teach the world their message. So I started Karma Rescue to try to get as many of them the chance they deserve to help better our lives by just being in them.
