Southern California Koi Rescue is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit operation run by a dedicated team of volunteers who donate their time free of charge. All of our rescued koi are quarantined for a minimum period of 4-6 weeks before they are ultimately rehomed to properly vetted new forever homes. As a courtesy, we often provide photos and videos of rescued koi back to their former owners when they arrive in quarantine so they will know they arrived safe and sound. As private hobbyists ourselves, we have a passion for koi keeping and our love for these precious living jewels is the main reason we do what we do.
