Karma Rescue started a small-dog adoption program in 2012 to help stand up for the “little guy.” Inspired by the memory of Nova, a beautiful Cavalier King Charles who passed away in October of 2012, this fund is dedicated to finding homes for the big things that come in small packages…

Nova’s Story

Nova was only seven years old when he tragically died. He was a special dog with special needs, and he exemplified what happens when backyard breeders cross unsuitable blood lines without care. Little Nova was going to be abandoned at a shelter, deemed un-sellable by his breeders. Fortunately, Kathy and Tiffanei Reese, dear friends of Karma Rescue, rescued Nova from this unscrupulous breeder and immediately took him into their home where, for seven years, he was showered with love and affection.

We hope that this fund will make it possible for many more small dogs to experience the love Nova felt with the Reeses. More than 10,000 small dogs are abandoned annually in City shelters (per NKLA’s reporting). After visiting the South Los Angeles Shelter in August 2012, pulling 13 amazing little dogs, and placing them all in forever homes, we felt it was incumbent upon Karma Rescue to live up to Nova’s memory.

A very special thank you to Kathy and Tiffanei Reese, for sponsoring the Nova Fund. Kathy’s and Tiffanei’s support will now help Karma Rescue save an additional 200 dogs per year!
