Special Needs K9, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue of abused, neglected, sick and unwanted dogs from high Kill Shelters, especially those on Death Row due to overcrowding or being “undesirable” dogs. Nearly all our rescues have extensive medical issues that were never addressed. We provide them with all the medical care they need as well as obedience training and behavior modification where needed. Once fully medically cleared, spayed or neutered, vaccinated and fit for adoption, we place these dogs in loving forever homes.
Incorporated on October 21, 2009, “Special Needs K9, Inc.” filed all the necessary federal and state documents for a non-profit, 501(c)(3), organization status. A board of trustees was recruited, bylaws were adopted, and a non-profit business bank account was established. We became fully operational in November 2009. Inc. There are thousands of dogs and other animals who need help. Some are sick, some are blind, some have three legs and some have no legs. Most of them were hurt by the human hand and now they need to be helped by the human hand. It’s up to us…all of us. We need your help.
In November of 2012, Special Needs K9 hit the streets of NY City as well as some areas of NJ to start off our “Homeless with Pets” program.
This program was designed to help the homeless (many of whom are MILITARY VETERANS that our own country has FAILED) and their pets by supplying them with food…and yes that includes human food as well as dog food, blankets, cloths, few dollars and other daily necessities. We will also provide medical treatment for their pets when necessary, but only when our funds allow such actions (unfortunately so far, we have not had sufficient funds to provide medical care for the dogs in need since we started this program). We get NO government grants. We solely depend on donations, all of which go to our cause. We do NOT collect ANY salaries.
Your support and contributions will enable us to help these animals. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
