Meet Ruffi! He is an approximately 8 year old Maltese that is full of love and affection! He is extremely well behaved, completely potty trained, hardly barks or makes a peep, loves to go on walks or be outside, and play with his stuffed bunny!  He loves attention from adults and is extremely social with people (I don't think he ever stops wagging his little tail). He does not do well with small children, he came from a loving home with an elderly woman who passed away so the quick and sudden movements of small children make him a little nervous.  He is perfectly happy sitting in your lap, or relaxing anywhere else he can find a comfy spot. He has a medical condition so he needs someone who has a heart as big as his to give him that extra TLC that he needs.  He has been diagnosed with an enlarged heart that is currently being successfully treated with medications that he will most likely need to take for the rest of his life.  You would never think he has anything going on with the amount of energy and love that he has to share with someone willing to give him that extra attention he deserves.  If you are looking for the perfect companion that will relax with you, play with you, and love you forever, then look no further and give this love bug the forever home he is looking for!

Adoption fee is $250 and includes a dental cleaning, DHPP & rabies vaccinations, heartworm testing, spay/neuter surgery, deworming, and microchip. All animals are examined by a veterinarian.

About Good Karma Pet Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Good Karma Pet Rescue is a small network of foster homes in South Florida dedicated to providing dogs and cats in need with the love and help they need and deserve.

GK was started in 2011 by Stacey Chen, who decided that she could best provide for her foster animals by starting a rescue that aims for best 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!

Come Meet Our Pets...

We meet potential adopters by appointment only, typically in the foster's or potential adopter's home. Dogs can be arranged to be seen at a local park or a similar location.

Our Adoption Process...

We have a quick but thorough adoption process. We ask you to fill out an application and we will touch base with you by phone. If we feel you are a good fit for the animal you would like to adopt based upon your application, we will want to do a home visit and have you meet the pet. If everything checks out, we will ask that you sign an adoption contract and pay a donation - usually $75 for cats and $150 for dogs. This includes all vetting, spay/neuter, vaccines, etc.

Our contract allows us to come visit you and your new family member after the adoption to make sure everything is going well and your new pet is happy & healthy.
