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.

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.

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!!! ♥

The Kris Kelly Foundation is one of the most important foundations in the country. More than someone who rescues animals, Kris Kelly helps PEOPLE become more caring, loving and understanding of what it means to own or adopt......and we see how that changes lives. Integrity, compassion, kindness, generosity and experience is what Kris is and brings to this wonderful foundation. She makes a difference. A very unique and special person.

Although I have never met Kris, personally, I feel like she is a true, rescue angel friend. She is always eager to help me, when I need a resource, pertaining to rescue. She is constantly going out of her way, and spending hours, just to find a safe haven for ANY and ALL urgent animals. Yes, even a pot-bellied pig! She is genuine and I stand behind and support her Foundation, without any reservations. We need more Kris Kelly's! God Bless.

I have know Kris for over 20+ years, she is gracious, kind, and an incredibly thoughtful person when it comes to helping people and animals. She has dedicated herself to love and service of rescue animals. She has generously given her time and energy to help stop the animal abuse that happens all too often here in Southern California. I am very fortunate to have met Kris and share this incredible journey together. If anyone needs support, direction and or help in protecting our beautiful animals Kris is your girl,

Thank you Kris,

I have followed the rescues of Kris Kelly Foundation for several years now. I have helped with networking, donations to her yard sales, monetary donations, etc. At all times she and her foundation have been professional and caring. She finds people to rescue all animals: dogs, cats, bunnies, goats, pigs, horses, you name it, and does so in record time. When my friend was looking to adopt a new pup, I saw the cutest one on Kris's Facebook page, put them in touch with each other, and it was a perfect match. The dog was everything she promised. Thank you Kris, for always putting the animals first.

I network for animal rescue. Kris was someone I met early on. She has always been available to answer any questions I have regarding the animals. She tries to help as many animals as she can and it is not just dogs and cats!! It is ducks, bunnies, horses, pigs whatever kind is in need :) One particular Saturday I was desperately looking for someone to help me get a dog pulled. I had asked everyone and was getting no where. I finally turned to Kris and she was able to contact the night supervisor at the shelter to let them know she would be pulling the dog in the morning. The dog was safe for the night and was pulled as promised the next day!! I was so grateful.

I haven`t met Kris, but have conversed with her. I've viewed Her KKF and found a truly Beautiful Person with a Huge Heart! She cares for all Creatures. Sometime through the eyes of a little Girl, so Sweet. She brings Snails inside to feed them... I support her!

Kris? Angel indeed! I heard about Kris and her wonderful organization through my son who adopted both his doggie and kitty through her. When I was ready to adopt our rescue dog, since I live in RI, not LA, I found PetFinder through her website. Our rescue Archie a Beagle-Hound mix is the apple of my husband's and my eye! He just turned a year old and we've had him since he was 3 1/2 mos old. He brings us so much joy! Rescue is the only way to go! Kris and her 'pack' go above and beyond for the welfare of animals. Right now I am able to help spread the word but if I ever move back to Cali I would like to get more involved there. As soon as Archie is a little older, I may foster or volunteer someplace here with animals where I'm needed! I've always loved animals but this is ALL due to the inspiration of Kris and her crew of tireless volunteers! P.S. we have a rescue kitty we've had for all his 8 yrs too.

Kris Kelly and her foundation are amazing and tirelessly working literally 24 hours a day. I remember when this was just a dream of hers several years ago. She worked at saving the animals then too, and was also a volunteer in many organizations.

She was influential in getting me involved, now I am on several boards doing what I can. I often call her for advice on my pets; my nickname for her is "Doc" She at times has the best answer as her experience in rescue has put her in so many situations.

Congratulations Kris keep up the good work!
