  • Welcome to Good Karma Pet Rescue!

    Good Karma Pet Rescue is a network of foster homes in South Florida dedicated to providing dogs and cats in need with the love and care they need and deserve. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

    GK was started in early 2011 by Stacey Tollackson Chen, who decided that she could best provide for her foster animals by starting a rescue that aims for high quality care rather than high volume. We intend to stay as small as we need to be to ensure that every one of our foster animals is treated with the same care and respect we show our own furry family.

    GK is based in Fort Lauderdale and is supported by wonderful, dedicated foster parents throughout the South Florida area. If you are interested in helping to save lives through volunteering, fostering, or adopting, please get in touch with us!

2. Our second challenge and often equally as difficult as fundraising is having sufficient foster homes. We simply can’t help an animal if we don’t have an available foster home for them. Consider opening your home to a sweet dog, cat, puppy, or kitten! We provide all food, supplies, and cover all veterinary care. All you do is open your heart and home. Apply to join our foster family here:

3. We are so very lucky to have the support of which means we always have an incredible supply of dog food and other supplies. What we usually need more of is dry and wet kitten food, cat food, and LITTER (oh, so much litter!). With having anywhere upwards of 100 kitties in the rescue, the food and litter goes FAST. Find our kitty wish list here: 

4. Shop at retailers that support Good Karma!

5. Come out and participate during our monthly fundraisers and events at local businesses such as Funky Buddha Brewery, 26 Degree Brewing Company, World of Beer – Coconut Creek, Painting with a Twist – Coral Springs, FL, and more. Keep up with our upcoming events here:

6. LIKE, COMMENT, & SHARE OUR POSTS!***With Facebook’s new rules, it makes it really challenging for all of our 39k followers to see our posts. We are finding that sometimes as few as 1% of our fans are able to see our posts, which makes us really sad and ultimately hurts our animals chances at adoption and our ability to fundraise. Your participation really helps!


We know the holidays can put a dent in all our pockets, so we want to share ways you can get your holiday shopping done and support our cause at the same time. Visit our “Shop for a Cause” page to view a few retailers (including Amazon) where you can use our referral links to help us raise funds for our animals!

These four puppies on the left (Pep, Papi Jr., Lala, and Rosa) were just recently rescued by our awesome volunteers after they were bought from a homeless person. Aren’t they ADORABLE?

We are a non-profit 501c3 animal rescue in Fort Lauderdale, in the South Florida area, rescuing dogs, cats, and other domestic pets. We appreciate your support!

We also have a new tab on our website above called SHOP WITH A CAUSE to help direct you to all of the awesome businesses that help support our rescue when we direct shoppers to their sites. The Amazon link is also on that page, along with info from and other sites.


Robert came to our event yesterday looking for one kitten… He left with two adult cats! How awesome is that?

Thelma & Louise were abandoned by their owners when they moved. The poor girls were left outside to fend for themselves. Luckily, one of our volunteers scooped them up and began looking for a perfect home for them.

It’s not easy finding homes for adult cats especially during kitten season. The foster was crying happy tears as they left. It was such a special moment. This every special adoption really made our day! Thank you for choosing to adopt, Robert! And especially for giving some not-kittens a chance.:)
