K9 Focus | Animal Friends

K9 Focus

K9 focus‘ sole focus is to rescue unwanted and abandoned dogs. Also aiming to increase public awareness of the plight of many dogs which are simply dumped in pounds and have 7 days before they are killed.

K9 focus is run entirely by volunteers who give their valuable time freely and without whom many dogs would die.

K9 Focus took part in the Animal Friends Facebook Competition. They received funds to assist with their rescue and rehabilitation centre.
