Good Karma began in 2013 with just a few animal-loving rescuers who wanted to do rescue
right. In those early days, our skeleton crew attended intakes in my backyard or dark parking
lots, we were buying clearance collars and leashes from Target, begging for free crates
on Craigslist, and squeaking by the best way we could. Our ENTIRE rescue operations
were stored on about 5 spreadsheets! Even in those early days, one thing was constant:
we never, ever cut corners on any dog's care, we never rushed them out of foster care
into adoptive homes before they were ready, and every single thing we did was about
the dogs. Period.
Five years later, a lot has changed since the days of those original few foster families -
who are STILL with us rescuing dogs, by the way! Our small army has grown slowly and
steadily. The idea behind Good Karma is simple, and something we STILL hold true to every day.
We place priority on high quality care and committed, ethical volunteers who are aligned with our mission. We still will not make a commitment to a dog that we cannot truly help, and we still won't cut corners on quality of care.
I'm so grateful to have built such an amazing support team for our equally amazing foster families and adopters. A rescue is only as strong as its volunteers and advocates, and these ladies are the engine that keeps Good Karma running each and every day.
Here's to many more lives saved over many more years. Thank you for your love and support!
