How It Makes A Difference

Fundraising is vital to Karma Rescue and our mission, we could not continue helping animals in need without donations. Families are still forced to give up their pets because they cannot afford vet care or training, Karma Rescue helps provide these services to keep pets healthy with their loving families. This can be very costly so your fundraiser is vital to continue this mission.
