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

The first time I met Kris was through facebook. I was doing some work in Compton and a pitbull ran by me, blood all over its face,,, I was so bumped out. I posted a pic of the dog running away, not really knowing what to do. I remember Kris giving me GREAT advice ... Its helped from the future on and we have stayed connected, I have TWO RESCUE PUPS from kris and I'm sure ill have more... I will help Kris forever. She is a true Angel. Let be honest, NOT MANY people (maybe 1%) can do this on a DAILY basis.. SO give when you can,, Give yourself a pat on the back if you do BECAUSE IT TRULY HELPS HER!.. I will keep giving because I cant do much more ... BUT i know Kris can... #donate #save #an #animal.

Kris helped connect me with my best pal, Taco. She's doing a wonderful job at finding homes for animals in need and I very much recommend working with her group.

I have a business located in a very rural area of Riverside. I get a lot of abandoned dogs and other animals that I cant take care of and they cant take care of themselves in that environment. My go to person is Kris when this happens. She always finds homes for the animals that need it and does not let them go to people that are nothing but the best. I follow her Facebook page along with many others in CA but she really sticks out for the right reasons. People can be so cruel so its nice to see someone who really cares for all the animals.

Kris, is amazing! Her indefatigable drive to save and rescue as many animals is incredible. She's helped save countless animal's lives and is always ready to lend a hand, day or night, (and often in the middle of the night) to help an animal in need. She's an amazing woman.

I have had several years positive experience with the Kris Kelly Foundation, and I believe they are an outstanding nonprofit for animal welfare, and I fully support them! Kris Kelly is such a caring, compassionate person, and I am so impressed by her active engagement in the community to speak up for animal rescue. I think she rescues primarily dogs and cats, but I've noted other rescue efforts as well, including chickens, pigs, etc. Ms Kelly is often on the front lines, personally rescuing and caring for animals. She has personally influenced my life in that I've become more involved in animal rescue, as well as changing my lifestyle to a healthy veggie/vegan diet. I am much healthier & happier now as a result. Please consider supporting the Kris Kelly Foundation. It is truly a wonderful cause!

As a filmmaker and animal rescue advocate, I have worked with many rescues around the world. I have known Kris Kelly for several years and her Foundation is outstanding! Kris works with dedication & integrity & compassion to help animals, and to me, is a role model for anyone who does rescue. As other reviewers have noted, Kris walks the talk, and animals truly come 1st. She works tirelessly to be a voice for animals, to make this a better world for them, and actively uses social media to raise awareness. Kris is on the front lines, doing everything she can to be personally involved in animal rescue. She is the best and certainly deserves our support!

So grateful to this beauty for her tireless efforts to be a voice for the animals that have no voice. Kris is always doing whatever she can to save as many animals as possible.

Kris and her team are simply amazing. Her first and most important priorities are the animals and I can't thank her enough for all of their hard work and support. She connects with shelters, rescues and every day goes above and beyond. I can't say how many times, she has been there for the rescue that I volunteer with and pulled a dog, fostered and even had a shelter pup get his own private plane to fly to his new home.

Kris makes my heart sing with all of the many things that she does and I thank her everyday that she is there to be the voice for so many animals that are struggling in our world today.

Thank you Kris and your amazing staff. Keep up the great work. We love you!

I first found the Kris Kelly organization on Facebook randomly from a post that I saw to save a dog. I remember making a very small contribution to that cause and I began to follow Kris Kelly. After seeing how much effort she puts in to this organization and how many people she helps I was blown away. Whether it’s finding fosters and transports or homeless dogs reunited with their owners. I see how many animals she saves and I have no idea how she does it. I couldn’t even open the emails every day that she has to read and some of them are unkind from people who are cruel and hateful for no reason attacking her. They don’t even understand how much work goes on behind the scenes to run a place like this. Kris always handles herself with such class and I’m convinced she’s an angel for animals. We need more organizations like this in the world!

Since its founding The Kris Kelly Foundation has been at the forefront of animal welfare efforts most notably in the Southern California area. The foundation's continuous efforts to provide healthcare and homes for neglected animals have earned it the reputation of being one of the most successful and effective animal welfare groups anywhere in the SoCal area. In addition to its regular fieldwork in the Los Angeles area to rescue abused/neglected animals, the foundation is also consistently recognized as being a top animal rights advocacy group.

Kris Kelly has one of the biggest hearts and reputable companies in the rescue business- I have know Kris for over 13 years and have worked steadily with her foundation. Her commitment to animal rescue is far and above and she works tirelessly to place each and every animal from cat, to dog, to turtles, pigs and chickens.

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’m a lucky momma of a foster fail thanks to Kris continually posting the scared, helpless and abused babies to protect them from the wrongs of the world! Can’t thank her enough for the work that she does, the people who help and the souls she saves! She works tirelessly with highs and lows from her passion for ALL animals!! From dogs to turtles, cats to pigs and even horses! Love knows no boundaries with Kris!

The Kris Kelly foundation goes above and beyond for animals, they are a rescue that far exceeds expectations of a rescue. They have garnered my respect so much so to the point where i decided to choose them as one of the rescues i would sponsor and help financially. 5 Stars across the board.
