The Karma Cat & Zen Dog Rescue Society’s mission is to “provide a safe and peaceful haven for homeless, abandoned, or abused animals,” stated Arlotta. The nonprofit helps to decrease the number of cats and dogs that are being destroyed in kill shelters through the work of their foster, spray/neuter, trap-neuter-return and education programs.

“The vision of the Karma Cat & Zen Dog Rescue Society is a world where every companion animal is respected, fed, warm, happy, and not in danger of being killed because it is temporarily homeless,” according to a press release discussing the nonprofit’s partnership with Benefit Wines.
