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's great, inspiring leadership makes this nonprofit one of the most effective I've ever seen in saving animals every day. It is truly inspiring to see Kris tirelessly help abandoned, neglected and abused pets.

I can't say enough about the Kris Kelly Foundation. They always go out their way to help animals when others just turn their head, be it medical needs, or abuse situation, or an animal that's been hit by a car . Kris will do what she can , she's not afraid to jump inmake a difference.
Thank you Kris Kelly for all you do, keep up the good work

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.

I've known kris for years but didn't realize the existent her foundation would go through until a friend of mines mom passed away and he had to take in her pets. I notified kris and not only did she find homes for her senior pets but arranged to pick them up and transport them, a true angel.

The Kris Kelly Foundation!!!!!!!
Is a wonderful group of people, especially Kris :)!! We found 3 Chihuahua's this year, the first was a little female, we had been calling Jane Seymour, as she had one blue and one brown eye. With her picture posted, she was reunited with her Family.
As we were knocking on doors looking for Jane's home, we came across two other Chihuahua's. With one having a seizure. went home to get a crate to put them in, and they disappeared. For a couple of weeks we tried to catch them to no avail. Coming home one day from picking my granddaughter up from school, there was traffic back up on Del Amo Blvd and Crenshaw Blvd. Crenshaw is a very, very busy road, speed 45 miles an hour. The traffic back up was due to those two little Chihuahua's. They both had some how safely crossed Crenshaw, a miracle in itself. People had exited their cars and even road workers were helping to catch them. we were able to catch them, as the black one went into a seizure and the other stood by him, and I was able to cover him in a pair of my son's work overalls, and get him and the other into the truck. Brought them home, bathed them right away, as they were very dirty. Then messaged Kris, and she got busy to get them some vet care. They were both neutered, vaccined, micro-chipped and had dental's done. Then with pictures posted of the two of them, lots of net working, phone calls and emails, they have both found wonderful homes, where they are loved and cherished members of a family. This would not have happened without The Kris Kelly Foundation. Please donate , your money, 100%, goes to help the animals, not put on very expensive commercials!!

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.

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.
