Kismet Pet Adoptions (KISMET), a Non-Profit Organization founded in 1985 by Gloria Trelles Ripple, is dedicated to the welfare and placement of COMPANION ANIMALS. Each rescued animal by Kismet's dedicated volunteeers receives a veterinary exam, all vaccines, de-worming, de-fleaing and spay/neuter. Dogs are heartworm tested and cats are "FeLV/FIV tested. Many have required medical attention and have not been denied, such as heartworm treatments, surgeries and long term care. We operate out of the pockets of our members so our funds are limited. KISMET'S policy is that no animal should ever be killed for want of a good home. Based on this policy, many have found comfort in a forever home with a family to call their own.
