Psst Are you a brand, artist, shelter, or dog looking to get on Dogly?
Big dogs. Big need. Big love.
We are not a shelter with a facility, but instead our dogs are fostered with volunteers in their homes. k9.5 is dedicated to helping animals who have been neglected, abused, or abandoned, as well as those who have unfortunately found themselves in a shelter.
Our focus is on Great Pyrenees, other giant breeds, seniors and special needs animals.
What's the .5 ? Extra large breeds, seniors and special needs dogs are the ones most commonly euthanized in the shelters. The large and extra large dogs are bigger than what most people see as a "normal sized" k9 as they tower over other animals...therefore a k9.5. Seniors are more advanced in age making them a k9.5, and special needs animals require more care, thanking us with more than an overabundance in gratitude and love...therefore a k9.5. We adore those that are bigger, older, and even require "more work." We see these fabulous dogs who can live good lives so often tossed aside, overlooked or forgotten...but we also see them blossom when given the opportunity. Defying the odds, they are more than your typical K9. They are a k9.5.
Some of our dogs will stay in our rescue on a permanent basis. They are our sanctuary members for various reasons, but are magnificent dogs full of love. We are proud to have them represent our rescue, grateful for their place in our lives and the lessons on life and love they teach us. We adore them and will remain devoted to their care.
Our goal is to properly care for each dog both physically and emotionally, no matter what it takes, so that he or she is given a second chance on life.
