Buddy is a 9 month old Finnish Spitz who was saved from Kern County Animal Services. Buddy was not a fan of the shelter and was having a lot of trouble settling in. No surprise, once he got into a foster home he was just about as sweet as could be! Buddy is a smarty-pants who learned his name on his first day in foster and already responds it and comes when called. He is incredibly affectionate and at only 11 pounds, he really loves to snuggle down in a lap for cuddle time. Buddy would do really well with anyone looking for a snuggly dog or even a family with kids who are looking for a playful friend. Buddy has all the qualities you're looking for so look no further.

Layla's smiles are too much! This girl is always so happy! At 30lbs she's the perfect medium sized dog - small enough for lap cuddles, but large enough for long walks and being active. Layla gets along wonderfully with other dogs and would make a great companion!

Lexi was rescued from the streets after her rescuer observed a homeless individual kicking her in the face. Although she was getting kicked, Lexi continued to follow the homeless person asking for help in the only way she knew how. As a result she is missing many teeth and her tongue although healed has a permanent split down the middle. Her finder could not hold past the hold period and asked for rescue help. No Kill Kern stepped up.
Little Lexi is just 6.2lbs and 10 years old. She appears to be a Maltese. We have no idea how someone could mistreat such a tiny and sweet dog but it's time to turn her luck around! Lexi needs to be spayed and have a mammory tumor removed. She also needs a dental on her few remaining teeth. Once her medical needs are met Lexi will be available for adoption ❤️. Want to give this sweet girl the forever home she deserves? Apply to adopt!

Sammy, and his brother Jax, came to NKK after one of our supporters saved them from being sold outside a grocery store. They were weak and tired and simply covered in fleas. Wherever these chihuahua mix puppies came from, they were in need of love and care. Thankfully, they're both safe in a foster home and getting plenty of that! These boys are flourishing under the care of their foster mom and are extremely playful and sweet. In face, they're so sweet they let tiny puppy Duke into their brotherly circle of love! These boys are growing day by day and have already started vaccinations. Next stop neuter and then off to their homes. Apply today to bring home Sammy sweetheart!

Angel faced Duke came to NKK through Kern County Animal Services as a 4 week old puppy. Too young to be in the shelter, he needed immediate rescue! Thankfully, we'd just had a new foster mom join us and she quickly swooped Duke up into her loving arms. This pitty baby has been steadily growing strong and having awesome puppy adventures with NKK pups Jax and Sammy. The 3 boys spend their days playing, napping, eating and getting loved on. Duke is already being vaccinated and will be neutered very soon - and then it's off to a forever family he goes! If you'd like to give Duke a loving home, please apply today!

Maybelle is an itty-bitty girl who came to NKK with a broken jaw. She's since had surgery at UC Davis and is now on the mend! We expect Maybelle to make a full recovery and be good as new.

Maybelle is about as sweet as they come and just wants to be loved on. If you'd like to give Maybelle her forever home, please apply today!
