December Charity Spotlight on Lilo's Promise Animal Rescue

"Enriching the Lives of Dogs and People, One Rescued Pit Bull at a Time"  

December Charity Spotlight on Lilo's Promise Animal RescueLilo's Promise Animal Rescue is a nonprofit organization specializing in rescuing “bully breeds” in their final days at local Philadelphia and South Jersey shelters and providing them with the lives they deserve. Homeless American Pit Bulls Terriers, American Staffordshire Terriers, and related breeds are welcome to stay with Lilo's Promise volunteers until forever homes are found, no matter how long it takes.

Dedicated volunteers provide dogs with love, veterinary care, and safe housing. During their stay at Lilo’s Promise, dogs receive basic obedience training and exposure to various social situations. The Lilo’s Promise goal is to provide every rescued dog with a “New Beginning regardless of breed, background, age, or disability by making the best possible match for both the dog and his new family.


Lilo’s Promise co-founders, Anita Anastasi and Jennifer Conners, first met Lilo in 2003 while working as volunteers at a local shelter. Lilo was a young female pit bull with the sweetest face - a favorite of the volunteers. When Lilo became very ill and was hospitalized, Anita and Jennifer spent time together visiting Lilo in the hospital. Lilo eventually returned to the shelter, and to the delight of all, she was adopted by a vet tech who had cared for her. Sadly, Lilo lost the battle with her illness shortly after she was adopted.

Anita and Jennifer were devastated by Lilo’s loss, but through this experience, they learned much about the pit bull breed and discovered they shared a philosophy and a vision of running their own rescue. In 2006, in honor of their beloved Lilo, Anita and Jennifer started Lilo’s Promise Animal Rescue.

In addition to making perfect matches and sharing the joy of adopting a homeless companion, Lilo’s Promise educates the community with programs emphasizing the importance of spaying and neutering, obedience training, and advocating against Breed Specific Legislation while.

The Lilo’s Promise team is working toward a new dream of opening an adoption home and safe haven - a place where dogs can play, train, and live in a safe home environment until they are adopted into forever homes. This dream project is called LOTUS House, an acronym for Life Options through Unconventional Sheltering.


This unique concept is a home where dogs will live, heal, and blossom while learning obedience and socialization. Separate from the successful Lilo’s Promise foster program, LOTUS House will house dogs who need the consistency of training in a safe home environment. At LOTUS House, dogs will exercise every day, play with other dogs, and socialize with volunteers. Dogs will also learn house manners - housebreaking, crate-training, and much more. Lilo’s Promise believes dogs living in this type of environment will be better prepared for successful adoptions.

Lilo’s Promise needs to raise $150,000 to achieve the LOTUS House dream. There are many creative ways you can help including the gift of a financial donation. Please consider joining 4Knines in supporting the dogs in the care of Lilo’s Promise volunteers.

Cordura seat cover

Great product. Have them on all my seats to protect them from water sand and nails of from all the dogs that travel with me in my camper van to the beach, rivers and woods.



We liked the first cover so much that a few days later we purchased a second one. The cover installs very, very easily, fits and covers the rear seat and the back of the front seats of our Subaru Tribeca perfectly, has flaps that cover the door-side edges of the rear seat, and stays perfectly in place. Spilled or tracked water beads up on the material and can be easily wiped off. At first our dog did tend to slide just a little on the new cover, but he soon learned to stand, sit, and lay just as well as he did before on the uncovered seat. The hammock portion seems like it might provide some little bit of protection in a sudden stop (our guy will chew apart any "doggie seat belt" type of restraint in very short order - so that option is out of the question for us). As to keeping him out of the car front-area - well, our long-legged Standard Poodle has no problem in still looking closely out the front windshield by putting his front feet on the center console - straddling the hammock - with no problem whatsoever. But we did discover that having the hammock in place does allow us to safely keep his water bottle and dish, his leash, and an old towel on the floor under the hammock - where he can no longer get at them (especially the leash and towel) to chew on them. All in all, an excellent seat cover.


My furbabies don't like leather seats!!!! But they love this seat cover!!!

Very hard to find a split bench seat cover at a reasonable price, this one fit the bill. Easy to install, very durable and looks to be easy to clean. Wanted something that would protect the leather seats and was pet friendly (hate it when the material of regular seat covers snags toenails and collars). I don't think I will have to buy another for many years!!!

My Doodle approves!

Received on time, fits great and easy to install. Color is a great match. So far, so good. Durability? Time will tell. It appears to be well constructed.

Donald Fish

Fits my 2018 VW Tiguan perfectly

Very happy with our purchase. Fits perfectly, was easy to install and keeps the leather seats in our brand new vehicle perfectly clean.

Chris Campbell

great cover

This is actually a replacement for my original 4 knines cover which was 4 years old. I used it daily (bringing my pup to work with me) and washed it weekly, so the backing finally started to flake apart and come off. This newer version is easier to put over the headrests, great improvement in the strap and closures. Also the best improvement is the side flaps, the old cover didn't have these. These flaps help to catch the dirt from dogs feet when they are jumping up into the car, instead of it going on the side of the seat.

This is my 2nd seat cover from 4knines and love them both. The product and service were both fantastic.


Repeat customer VERY satisfied.

We have made several purchases from 4Knines and are VERY satisfied with products (cargo liner, back seat cover, bucket front seat cover...). I volunteer at a shelter and take dogs offsite daily. Always a Pleasure doing business with 4Knines. Highly recommend.
