What are we?
The Rescued K-9 is a non-profit animal rescue ranch that consists of volunteers willing to take time out of their busy schedules to help with fundraisers and events, and foster parents whom are willing to open their homes to animals in need until they are placed in their "furrrrever" home. Our mission is to remove animals from shelters and kill pens that have been placed on "death row" and are soon to be euthanized or slaughtered. The Rescued K-9 & Equine also accepts animals from those who have reached out to us who are in the most dire situations and can no longer care for their furry companion. We do our best to take in the animals that are sick and injured and have no other options; we are their last hope. We then spay/neuter, vaccinate, and sometimes microchip the animal (if these things have not already been done) and of course love them unconditionally until they have been carefully placed in a home that is suitable for them to carry out a happy, safe life. We started out only accepting dogs, though we now accept dogs, cats, horses, goats, donkeys, pigs, cows, and more!
Who are we?
The Rescued K-9 & Equine consists of animal enthusiasts alike. The founder of the organization (pictured above), Courtney Kenny, is a previous veterinary technician, the mother of dogs, horses and lots of livestock, a foster parent, volunteer, and animal rights activist. The incredible people who have been selected to foster animals in need have gone through extensive questioning, paperwork, and home checks, to ensure that each rescued dog is being placed in a suitable foster home where they will be worked with, protected, and loved endlessly. It takes a very, very special group of people to be foster moms and dads. These people have agreed to open their lives, their homes, their wallets, and their hearts to animals who need them now more than ever. Not everyone can say that they have that kind of heart. Thank you to all of the foster parents and volunteers of The Rescued K-9 & Equine!
Why do we do what we do?
The answer to that question could not be more simple: every animal deserves the chance to be loved and adored unconditionally. Animals are not born with fear, anger, sadness, or aggression; these are negative feelings created by people and situations, evil and ignorance. ALL domesticated animals are pure of heart and simply want love and affection...why should we not honor them that one wish to love them the way that they love us? If people were as free spirited, pure of heart, and free of judgement as animals are, the world would see no evil. So the real question is, why wouldn't we do what we do?
