Meet Katara, a pretty 3 year old Border Collie mix looking for an active home that appreciates the smarts that come with the breed. Katara is a loyal girl and develops a definite bond with her person or family. She loves to learn and loves to please. As is usual for the breed, she will watch for cues from her person and is ready for adventure. Katara already knows a lot. She knows sit, down, up, and some. She also knows how to shake hands. She is also an active girl who enjoys going places. She is polite in the car and can’t wait to go. She loves a good walk, would love to jog or hike, but does pull a bit on the leash. Katara is polite in the house. She is house trained and knows to go outside to do her business. She puts up with a bath without a fuss. She likes to be brushed. She is slightly growly, meaning that she will tell you when she isn’t happy, but doesn’t show any interest in biting. She is just vocal like others of her breed. Katara is a good girl with other dogs who aren’t bossy. She does like to nip while playing, so another dog would need to be okay with that. Also, due to that standard Border Collie tendency, she isn’t appropriate for young kids.When she first came to rescue, she had a minor seizure. After a doctor’s visit showed nothing wrong, and since she has had no other seizures, we think it was low blood sugar. However, we continue to monitor her and her new home should do the same. Katara is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on shots. She is ready for a new home in Southern CA.
K9 Kismet was founded to provide a resource for families of 4-legged (or 3-legged... we love our tripods) furries to be able to stay together in times of financial hardship by offering assistance with food, medical, and housing relocation services.
Our secondary mission is to rescue shelter animals and find them forever home.

Come Meet Our Pets...
Our pets are residents of their foster family homes and are available for meet and greets by appointment. We are currently too small to hold adoption events, but may be invited to participate in events hosted by other rescues. Stay tuned to our website and Facebook page for event announcements.
Our Adoption Process...
All adopters must be willing to complete an adoption application and home check prior to placement of the animal. All members of the household are required to meet the pet prior to adoption. If other animals are in the home, a meet and greet among the animals is also required. We offer foster-to-adopt options if additional time is needed.
Adoption fees vary on animal and medical status, but in general are:
$200 - young and adult dogs* $150 - seniors* $150 - young and adult cats* $100 - senior cats*
$300* for puppies or kittens who have not yet received all vaccinations prior to entering our rescue - getting them ready to enter mainstream society is expensive!
*Prices listed above are maximum prices. If our costs to care for the animal are less than the amounts listed above, K9 Kismet will offer a discount.
All animals are vaccinated, spayed/neutered and microchipped prior to adoption.
