More information about Kosma's Garden of Angeles Inc:

    Kosma’s Garden of Angeles is a non-profit, animal rescue and sanctuary located in Los Angeles, California.
The organization was founded in 2019 by my mother, Iwona Bakier in loving memory of her son, my brother, Kosma.
In 2016, Kosma was killed in a motorcycle accident shortly after his 30th birthday.
My mother and I were left in deep pain and overwhelming sadness.
At the time of his death, Kosma was living in Toronto, Canada, although, his few years spent in Los Angeles he described as some of his most memorable.
Often described as an old soul, Kosma was wise beyond his years. He was intelligent, opinionated and stubborn. To his family and friends, he was playful, silly and vulnerable. He loved watching old war movies, riding his motorcycle, and snuggling his dog. No-one brought out his soft side more than his number one girl, his Rottweiler-Pitbull Cross named Ava -which he adopted from the Toronto Humane Society.
In an attempt to channel our grief into something positive and honour Kosma’s name, my mother and I started this rescue.
As a family of animal lovers, working with them was a no brainer for her and I.
Our mission as an organization is to remove animals from abusive or neglectful situations, rehabilitate and rehome them- in order for them to live their best life.
Not including our variety of household pets (past and present), the organization has removed and rehomed via adoption 20+ dogs from kill shelters in Los Angeles this year alone. Although we work primarily with dogs, we are not limited to - most recently we have expanded our vision of a rescue and added a sanctuary for some of our more difficult cases (sick, old or unadoptable animals).
Although we have made great strides in the short time we have been operating, it is no easy task and the job is far from over.
My mother, our volunteers and I, have full time jobs and operate the rescue during our spare time. We rely entirely on public donations.
These donations allow us to remove the animals from their current situations, house and feed them, provide them with medical attention and so on.
If you support our cause, please donate today.   

Kosma Bakier-Poniewierski (March 18, 1986 - April 17, 2016).
Thank you,
Kora & Iwona Bakier.
