Can You Help Save A Dog's Life?        Over 600 lives saved & counting!

Ken-Mar Rescue is a 501c3, non-profit, Los Angeles-based, small dog rescue. We are foster-based, cage-free, and donor supported. We rescue, rehabilitate and rehome "last day" dogs that would otherwise be euthanized. We offer adoptions throughout Southern California and beyond. Our orphans are sterilized, up-to-date with shots and microchipped. We do home checks on all potential adoptions before finalizing.

Ken-Mar Rescue's mission is to save neglected small dogs and introduce them to their forever families. Ken-Mar Rescue depends on donors, foster parents, volunteers and fundraisers to continue its life-saving work.



Have you already seen the dog of your dreams at one of our events or perhaps on TV? Maybe you need a little match-making to find the right dog for you. Either way, just fill out the adoption questionnaire and we will contact you to get you on the road to pure puppy love!

Do you have some extra love to give, but can't yet make a lifetime commitment to a dog? Maybe you need to see if taking care of a dog is workable for you and the family. Fostering is a necessary part of Ken-Mar Rescue. The more foster parents we have the more dogs we can save. We just ask for a minimum of a two month commitment. Try it, you'll like it!
