Facts about Ava

 We can only imagine the life that Ava lived before coming to our rescue and we gather hints and clues from the condition she was found in. She seems to have been used primarily for breeding, confined to a crate with a hard surface where she developed calluses on her bottom. She had the most horrid yeast infection on her skin we've ever seen or smelled, had no hair on her tail, hind feet, chest and belly and was covered in filth. She contracted a tick-borne blood parasite that gave us quite a scare when we got her out of the shelter but she recovered beautifully after receiving medical treatment. After all this girl has endured in her life, she has yet to meet a person she doesn't absolutely love. Even with frequent vet visits and being poked, prodded, x-rayed, she gets so excited to visit the doctor and greets all the nurses and staff with such love. She loves being near her people, snuggling up under a cozy blanket and is so happy to play fetch with her stuffed toys and adorably trots back with them in her mouth. She listens really well and enjoys working for delicious treats. Ava is estimated to be about 6-7 yrs old, 26 lbs, she is house trained and crate trained. As we think she was raised primarily for breeding purposes, Ava didn't have the chance to socialize with other dogs in a positive way. She is learning that other dogs aren't a threat and while she lives in a foster home with other dogs, she has her own space that is gated off. We are working with a trainer to help her improve on her doggy socialization skills. Ava would love to be the one and only in your life. This loving, affectionate girl deserves to be spoiled and doted on for the rest of her life. If you think you can be the special someone for Ava, please complete an application at

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.
