SAVING K9 LIVES PLUS Inc., a 3-year old organization, who is hosting the show, was founded by Jasmin Gabay Kimball and her husband Bobby Kimball, musician (original lead singer of TOTO). Their partner and friend, Manuela Parker, they have rescued numerous pets from certain death, giving veterinary care, special care giving for recovery and placement into caring homes. Saving K9 Lives Plus coordinates efforts with other rescue organizations seek to end over population, abuse and abandonment and provide care to these voiceless animals in those situations.
Saving K9 Lives Plus, Inc. was formed to provide public awareness of the growing population of homeless animals and animals being euthanized in overcrowded shelter systems. Saving K9 Lives Plus, Inc. will rescue animals (mainly dogs and cats) from various situations, including, but not limited to: bailouts from City and County Shelters, from owners who can no longer care for their pets, animals that have been abused, neglected or abandoned and non profit rescues that cannot care for the animal needs. These animals will receive veterinary care, food and shelter and be temporarily housed in a volunteer foster home. Once these animals have been sterilized, vaccinated, cured and/or treated for any illness and evaluated for temperament, they will then become available for adoption thru public media.
Jasmin Kimball, the event producer of the concert, states “Our rescue has grow in a short period of time. With additional funds we can save the special needs such as Teddy Bear, a paralyzed puppy bit by a large dog. We can speak up for the voiceless and save countless lives to safety, like Benji, a 4 month old puppy that was scheduled to be euthanized. We rescued a litter of puppies at 10 days old. We were able to find a home for wheelchair Sadie. It is with your help that we can accomplish these deeds. Help us help more innocent lives from death. 100 percent of the funds go back to the animals!”
