The Kris Kelly Foundation Announces Their Collaboration With Kona Rentals In Hawaii

The Kris Kelly Foundation is a “Friend Indeed To Animals in Need of Homes and Rescue from Animal Shelters"  - see why, below!

The Kris Kelly Foundation announced their collaboration with Kona Rentals in Hawaii. Kona Rentals will be donating 50% of their commissions earned on bookings made by the Kris Kelly Foundation to the foundation in an effort to raise money as part of the ongoing effort to build animal welfare and educational programs.  The Kris Kelly Foundation is an animal rescue organization that embraces the elderly, children, and teenagers.

Abused, neglected, abandoned, or hard to place animals have a guardian angel watching over them in Southern California. Kris Kelly is an unstoppable one woman force when it comes to rescuing and helping save animals by finding them homes and suitable owners who will care for them, regardless of how difficult they may be to place or what their histories may be. When it comes to animals of all stripes, Randy Newman must have had Kris Kelly in mind when he composed, “You've Got a Friend in Me.”

Kelly, founder of The Kris Kelly Foundation, has come a long way from Greenwich, Connecticut, where she was born, to a successful acting career in Hollywood that has taken a back seat to her all encompassing passion for rescuing pets, strays, and throwaways through her Beverly Hills-based organization. Kelly’s foundation was started after her many years of dreaming of her own non-profit to save animals from abuse, slaughter, and neglect. The foundation is taking an approach to not only work for animals but also work for people also. 

The Kris Kelly Foundation has rescued hundreds of animals of all stripes, ranging from dogs and cats, to pigs, horses, and several other types of four-legged species who have needed care and homes. The former actress has made her living as a real estate agent, dealing with some of the most expensive real estate on the West Coast in the Pacific Palisades, but her real focus is on homes for those who can not pay rent and who have no concern for their zip codes: homeless animals who have found themselves abandoned, neglected, lost, or simply displaced by owners.  Information about the Kelly’s organization, including case histories of many of the animal adoptions and rescues that have resulted from the foundation’s efforts, can be seen at  Or visit their Facebook page at
