One of the truly great non-profits in the world. Working in veterinary medicine I see a lot of rescue groups and many sadly are all about the people, Kris Kelly is all about the animals. She is their voice. She would lay down her life for them. Case in point—the sweet soul in the picture with her. When all the local vets told her it was hopeless she said “no.” She kept fighting. She called me. We talked and she kept fighting. And this sweet souls is happy and living her life. God bless her and her devotion

Kris Kelly and her Foundation go above and beyond the LA area! Their reach is as far as Kris, her volunteers and her connections can imagine! No animal is left to wonder if tomorrow will dawn. I have transported for Kris for the last number of years, doing whatever I can for this organization. Kris is the master of multi-tasking and can have an animal taken care of in a matter of minutes to hours. The stories run deep, the emotiions high and the rewards always make your heart throb in more ways than one but keep you coming back to help again and again, because there is always one more, no matter how hard we all work!
Thank you Kris for your countless hours of time and endless nights up travelling with the rest of us to make each life better, because YOU cared more than most!

I met Kris on Facebook several years ago. I watched her with urgency saving pets getting transporters, donations and vets. I got involved with donations,
and even sending pets I saw that needed help. She is Amazing and quite frankly beyond knowledgeable. I love her and the service she provides. go Kelly!

Living in Southern California is beautiful but with the beauty comes the masses of abandoned, abused and homeless animals.
The Kris Kelly Foundation has worked tirelessly to rescue animals from dogs to turtles and Kris Kelly doesn’t stop until the animal is safe.
No animal is left behind.

The Kris Kelly Foundation is probably in my opinion the very best rescue organization that I have ever personally seen in action, I have adopted rescue animals my whole life. Time and time again I have witnessed the heroic measures that Kris Kelly and her organization have gone above and beyond to not only save the animals but to ensure their health and wellbeing.
I personally was blessed to be on the receiving end with a dog named Winnie, that would not had a chance of survival had it not been for Kris Kelly and her dedicated team. This 'little girl' was to be pts at the end of the day. Having been badly abused and her very unfortunate circumstances of having her eye removed, Kris Kelly went to the end of the earth to not only save her life, but put her with the very best foster Mom until she was well enough to travel just over 6 weeks later and flew from California to Illinois to a new beginning of unconditional love, safety, healing and now forever home.
Fast forward 6 months later, Winnie has other dog siblings in our loving and very safe home and is learning to let go of her past of abuse, showering us all with her unconditional love!
I would do anything in the world for this very remarkable lady, Kris Kelly, she has gone above and beyond with her constant support of dealing with Winnie's PTSD, but additionally, guiding us to be the best we can be for her and her needs.
We have not only adopted a beautiful dog but along this journey we have been privileged to meet one of kindest, loving, dedicated, relentless people that I know...Kris Kelly, I'm proud to call you my friend!
If you have not had the wonderful opportunity to work with, donate to or rescue one of the animals from The Kris Kelly Foundation, do yourself and her animals a favor and help in whatever way you can to help Kris's Foundation and her animals!

I first learn about Kris Kelly foundation through a friend. I followed her foundation for a while before I reached out to offer my home for fostering, she has been one of the most proactive responsible rescues I have ever volunteered with. She walks her talk and will stop at nothing to help a fur baby be safe in a home that can provide that safety. She educates her volunteers and will help in anyway she can. It’s a pleasure to not only be a foster for her but, also be a Donner! I am not new at being a foster, but, have learned not all rescues are AAA. With Kris Kelly foundation you can be confident your time, efforts and money is well utilized.

We have had the honor of knowing Kris Kelly and her foundation! She is thee most hard working, selfless, kind, lady I have ever met. I reached out to her about a tripod GS who was going to be put down at a shelter. I was heartbroken. I wrote Kris and within the hour she got the necessary paperwork ready and went and pulled the dog. I will never forget what she did for me and the precious GS dog. She saved his life. He has been adopted and living a happy life. I know when I reach out to her and the foundation they are there! I have put all my love and trust in her. May God bless her and the foundation forever. Thank you for your tireless efforts to save all the animals you can. We love you Kris Ed and Sharon Ellis

I first adopted from Kris Kelly 6 years ago. Since then I have fostered many dogs for her foundation. We share a passion for white pomeranians and SAVING LIVES. She has dedicated her life to fight for the voiceless. Supporting the Kris Kelly Foundation by fostering, donating, adopting or just networking will be the most rewarding thing you do! She is making a difference in the world, and you can too.

I met Kris Kelly when I adopted a rabbit through her. Then I agreed to foster dogs and bunnies for her. Volunteering for Kris was a lovely experience. She is supportive, logical and sympathetic. Her personality and passion make her a delight to be aligned with in saving animals. I have found a friend for life.

These folks really helped save my girl from certain by the shelter she was in last year. Dominique, or Nikki for short is my constant companion. I had previously had a shi tzu/peek mix for 14 years and had to have her put to sleep. UGHHHHHHH! Heartbroken. Was without a dog for 2 months and couldn't stand the lack of companionship from an animal. I'm married, but my wife doesn't need her water bowl filled every day... So I look for a dog. Found her in the Downey shelter. Turnd out that she could not be released to the public because of her behavior. Fear was the main issue that was causing her to appear vicious. Love is greater than fear. I loved this dog. My love has grown. But Kris was instrumental in getting her released to me. Many unsure hours but Kris encouraged me to have faith. Around closing time at the shelter she got put in her crate for her trp to Los Feliz. Upon her arrival and the opening of the crate door, I put a piece of chicken jerky between my lips and with no fear got down on my hands an knees and put my face in front of her's and she left the crate to take that faithful step to trust and carefully take the jerky from my lips. Never to return to the crate. A year has passed and we've grown closer. Sleeps with me and still takes treat from my mouth!

Kris Kelly is an amazing woman!!! She has a real true love for these animals. Kris and her team have gone over and above financially, physically and emotionally to rescue these poor animals. It's a ongoing struggle to protect these helpless furry friends. Kris will save them all if she can. Because she actually cares. This is definitely a charity I would recommend donating to.
