Special Needs K9, Inc. (SNK9) specializes in rescue of abused, neglected, sick and unwanted dogs from high kill shelters. Our purpose and goal does not stop there. We are advocates against mistreatment of all animals, for their well-being and survival.

These wonderful creatures were put on this earth to give us unconditional love and companionship. Unfortunately, some humans are not as giving as their pets. Some of the pets are tortured or neglected, some get sick or injured, and in many cases they are just “thrown” away into shelters or worse. This is where we step in and make a difference. They give us so much, and we should at the very least give them a chance.

Needless to say, it takes a great expense to save these “underdogs” and provide them with the necessary medical care. 100% of our funding comes from private donations. We can only continue our work as long as we get help from people like you. To contribute to our efforts, please click on the Donate button below. THANK YOU!
