‘Paw Raiser’ held in Del Mar

Although based in Los Angeles, animal rescue organization Karma Rescue aims to expand its programs throughout Southern California into San Diego County.

To help it accomplish its goals, local animal advocate Joan Luber Jacobs hosted a “Paw Raiser” for Karma Rescue on Sept. 12 at her Del Mar home.

Founded in 2003, Karma Rescue is a nonprofit dedicated to saving at-risk dogs from Los Angeles’ overcrowded shelters, finding them permanent homes and providing resources for successful companionship.

At least once a week, Karma Rescue volunteers give educational presentations on responsible pet ownership and the pet overpopulation crisis. Volunteers regularly visit schools, universities, libraries and businesses.
