. KAAC has 8 chapters (Ohio, West Va., SC, NC, MN, AZ, and 2 in NY -Long Island & NYC, and Hudson Vallley).2. I have rescued over 1000 dogs/cats and a pink donkey through networking, adoption events, music video, youtube videos, Public Service Announcements, and red carpet events.3. KAAC was founded in 2009 but was not an official Facebook page until July 19, 2010.4. My membership page grew by attending/volunteering at high kill shelters/adoption events in Los Angeles, through media: "The Young Icons," my music video: "1Life2Live," PSA's on youtube, and by networking on Facebook with proven rescues/fosters/organizations (Best Friends, Animal Advocates Alliance).5. KAAC is in the paperwork phase of becoming a 5013c.6. We raise funds by selling t-shirts. We have raised about $1000.7. My parents are very involved with KAAC and support what I do 1000 percent. Both my mom and dad attend adoption events, help with flyers, pay for all expenses (driving to shelters, picking up dogs for transport, pledges for dogs on death row, assist with spay/neuter, money for music videos and youtube videos, money for initial t-shirt orders, 5013c fees, and bank account fees).let me know if you need any videos, pictures, or newspaprer articles. I am so honored that you are talking about KAAC!Thanks so very much!!
