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!

Kris Kelly is a Godsend - plain and simple. Her organization has helped countless animals get out of horrible situations, relocate, recover from injury, find new homes and get off death row. Kris's kind, generous and loving approach to her organization is the model by which other rescue groups should be measured.I have been a proud donor for a few years now and will continue to help and assist in any way possible.

I was introduced to Kris Kelly many, many years ago when a TV production company was considering a show about her rescue organization. I was incredibly impressed with her hands-on approach, her love of animals and her vast network to get them all placed (even hard to place pets). It's a rare person who is so compassionate, who works tirelessly on behalf of animals.
When my dog died, I didn't think I'd ever want another dog. Several months passed, and I saw Kris's Facebook post--a picture of a little guy who was found on the freeway: Highway Louie. I agreed to foster him and renamed him Bear--and adopted him. Now he's the love of my life. But Bear has health problems, serious heart issues, and Kris Kelly has constantly kept in touch, always wanting to know how Bear is doing. To me, that's extraordinary, that's caring. Every foster, every pet that crosses her path has a place in her heart.
I've watched her grow her organization, and I have donated and will continue to do so. She's not only great to the animals, she's a great friend to all.

I am so grateful to have a rescuer and foundation like The Kris Kelly Foundation in Los Angeles. They are dedicated to helping all animals, not just the super adoptable ones. They take on the sick, the old, the special needs animals that have little chance of making it out of the shelter. I've seen so many happy endings and Kris is always willing to help when I have asked her. She is a true gem in the rescue world and I feel lucky to know her.

Kris Kelly puts her money where her mouth and her heart is. It seems like she and her group are up 24 hours rescuing dogs across CA. She has an incredible network of generous people who come out at all hours of the night and 7 days a week and on holidays to take a dog/ cat goat or horse or any type of animal off the street -away from gangs and fighters, in ditches and off Craigs List. She helps rescues who have gone bad and people who just do not know where to turn or simply dump their animals on her. Everyone wants to help in their own way when Kris needs help. She even comes to the aid of people to help them keep a pet or work with a pet. She attracts the best of the best; warm hearts, compassionate and gentle, skilled and emotionally and financially generous if they can be. She drives everywhere -gets the animals on transports and to good home checked homes. The best part: She is the real deal - nothing but good and if all animal rescue was like this we would not have some of the sadness we see in other so called rescuing. Everyone wants to partner with her, help her. With all that said -she needs help - otherwise she cannot continue at the speed she works and the success. Please come aboard and help the them save lives: really save lives. I am grateful for The Kris Kelly Foundation.
