I became involved with Kris Kelly when her foundation helped me rescue an abused dog from the South LA shelter a few years ago. One of things I admire most about Kris is her love for ALL animals and her desire to see them all find loving homes. Many rescues will focus on certain breeds or simply just dogs or cats. Over the years I have witnessed her saving pigs, chickens, rabbits, and the list goes on and on. Whenever I need help I know I can count on Kris to help and that is why we all love her very much!

I became aware of the Kris Kelly Foundation when an abused dog came across my newsfeed for a friend we had in common. I couldn't believe my eyes!! A civilized nation like the US, allows for the abuse and killing of our household pets. I was horrified that I belonged to a society where athletes are overpaid,teachers beg for teaching supplies,plastic surgery and fancy cars have become more popular than the concept of HUMANITY! I found a glimmer in hope in Kris, who is available day and night to protect, advocate and FIGHT for these mistreated animals. I can personally attest to the fact I have witnessed many happy endings for these fur babies. People give her your money so that she can help change the world at a much faster pace.

I adopted my dog through the Kris Kelly foundation. I felt that the adoption went smoothly and I also felt that she did a great job making sure that animals were going to safe and loving homes.

You could say Kris Kelly found me. She had arranged to have a group of Beverly Hills Chihuahua's fly across the country to our small shelter in Maine. Just on a whim I decided to go see what these little critters were all about. Of course when I walk in there is this tiny 6 lb dog barking at all the other bigger dogs but kissing my hand through the cage. I had a 7 lb chipin who I thought needed a playmate her size, We also have a 82 lb German shorthaired pointer and a 90 lb Weimeraner. After a meet and greet "Sonny" came home with us. Long story short, I posted pics of him to our shelter facebook page and Kris friended me when she saw them. I had adopted Richard Burton! Each dog had a movie stars name. She and I have kept in touch on FB and I help her by sharing the rescues. Even though I live in Maine, I have friends in Calif and you never know who might know someone etc etc. Kris is by far one of the few true angels of the animals and she puts her heart and soul into saving as many as she possibly can. Without her I would not have gotten this most loving, sweet little guardian now known as Schmitty. Thank you Kris, we love you

Besides being a lovely person. Kris Kelly knows how to she her love on the outside. By raising awareness to adopt animals. And also raising money to help pets who owners leave their pets to not be taken care of anymore. To adopt a pet is the most wonderful thing. Those of you who do not have pets mat not understand, but pets are so much part of the family, They know when your feeling down. And in their own way sure no how to pick up your feelings. So please take time to adopt a pet through The Kris Kelly Foundation or any of your shelters. Kris Kelly Rocks!!! Thank you Kris for all your help!!! ♥

I became involved with The Kris Kelly foundation through a little dog named Lucky. He was due to be euthanized until Kris Kelly stepped in and saved his life. Through mutual volunteers, Kris and I were introduced and she asked if I would help foster this little guy until she found him a good home. Well... let's just say within the first moments of meeting him, I knew he was my Lucky dog! And here we are six years later!

Kris is an amazing woman and her passion for helping animals is unprecedented. I am truly grateful to her for all that she has done not only for Lucky but, for countless others. She is an extremely positive influence in my life and I know, she will continue to be a force to be reckoned with in the world of animal rescue for many years to come.

The Kris Kelly Foundation is an amazing resource to the rescue community. This is her passion in life, not a hobby and she loves what she does. The help and resources that she and her network of non-profit's provide is amazing. I am greatful to her not only as a friend, but as a client. She was there for me in my time of need and Gigi is now a proud member of the Kris Kelly Foundation.
