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.

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!

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.

The Kris Kelly Foundation has a tireless advocate and recuser at its lead who will go anywhere at any time to save an animal. They provide short and long term veterinary care to injured rescues (I adopted a dog that had been hit by a car and had a broken jaw and hip and was in vet for more than two months). This is definitely a rescue group worth supporting.

I've worked with the The Kris Kelly Foundation for a few years now and it is by far one of the most transparent organizations in existence. Kris Kelly is honest, compassionate and ethical. She works tirelessly to enhance the lives and overall wellness of animals. With so many subpar organizations out there, I've grown very cautious of who I work with and support...Kris Kelly has never disappointed me. I trust her judgment and love her character. May God Bless you Kris Kelly, you are a rescue Angel!!

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!

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.

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!

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 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.
