The Phoenix Fund is in place to help us to save more of the "unadoptable" dogs; dogs with medical needs who don't stand a chance and have been written off. We rescue a high number lot of seniors, heartworm positive dogs, and other medical cases. We never want to turn a blind eye to the dogs who need rescue most. These dogs matter to us, and they deserve the best we can give them. Funds raised will help us treat the dogs we rescue who have intensive medical needs.

Phoenix was an American Bulldog who was scheduled for euthanasia in a Houston-area shelter when we learned about him. He was emaciated and suffering from multiple conditions ranging from malnutrition to mange, skin infections, and high heartworm. He came to rescue weighing 44 lbs and over the next 18 months, he gained weight, grew his fur back, and weighed in at a strapping 88 pounds. Because he was always ill, he was never "adoptable", so he lived with our Director and became Good Karma's unofficial mascot. Through all of his medical treatments, discomfort, and pain, he was truly the most beautiful dog inside and out. Phoenix exuded a happiness that is impossible to describe, and he brought joy to everyone around him just by merely being present. Sadly his health issues were too much to overcome and he crossed the Rainbow Bridge on January 7, 2016, leaving a hole in his momma's heart that will never be filled. We are so grateful that we had the chance to save Phoenix, and that we were lucky enough that he chose US to save, too.
Every life is worth saving, and we will put these funds to good use. Check our blog often for updates of new arrivals or ongoing medical cases that we are helping.

We've forged our own path and driven our own transports to and from all over the south and midwest, making countless trips and transporting our own animals to lessen the burden on the volunteer rescue transport system. In the wake of disasters in the southern United States, we mobilized in 2016 to flood-ravaged Louisiana in our trusty old Suburban and a borrowed SUV. Again, in 2017 following Hurricane Harvey, Good Karma mobilized to the hardest-hit areas: Victoria and Rockport, TX - where Harvey made landfall. In every case, we delivered donated supplies to the people in these areas and built in extra days on the ground so that we could lend a hand and help out in any way we could.
Our Texas efforts are ongoing, and we also travel to other areas. This rescue effort not only helps us get the dogs out of the shelters sooner; it also helps OTHER RESCUES by freeing up an overburdened volunteer transport system, leaving more space for other dogs to get to other rescues.
Each run costs the rescue approximately $400 - $800 depending on distance and number of vehicles we take. You can see how that adds up. In order to keep this program running, we need help! Sponsor a rescue run and help us move dozens of dogs a month to their safe and loving foster homes!! HIGH IMPACT DONATION? You BET! For every dog WE move, another dog can make it onto transport to other rescues...freeing up TWO spots in the shelter for the dogs who need help. Every dog we transport = FOUR lives saved! Check our blog for updates on rescue runs, plans, and dogs we're saving!
