They say a picture is worth a thousand words…well some might be worth even more. We’d like to thank Diana Bunch of Pet Pawtography for coming out to Rescue K911, donating her services, and taking such beautiful pictures and video of our rescued dogs. She was so very patient and captured the essence of each one…”Thank you Diana!”

mabel1Dear Friend:

Sunday, May 4th: She came to Rescue K911 just this afternoon.  An elderly yellow lab in pretty rough shape. The man who pulled up our driveway said he found her along the roadside, laying in a ditch. She had a hard time walking, she had a cyst on her right hind quarter and pretty bad diarrhea. We really didn’t have the space, but we couldn’t turn her away. We took her in, made her a soft bed, along with our other elderly residents in Shadows Rest. We named her Mable.

From Your Dog:

You feed me when I’m hungry,
You keep water in my dish,
You let me sleep on anything
Or in any place I wish.

housebuildHi Friend:

If you were to come out to the rescue these past few months, and take a look around, you just might  notice some changes…maybe the sound of hammers, smell of sawdust… and notice  work being lovingly done…all in an effort to make the dogs stay with us better until adoption. Larry and I couldn’t do this work alone, finding ourselves always in need of helping hands.

Dear Rescue K911 Family:
Sitting here tonight at my computer, my heart is filled with so much gratitude for you. Larry and I think about you, our Rescue K911 family, and all the love, faithfulness, and support that you have shown to both of us, and also the dogs of Rescue K911. Throughout the years, you have been there beside us through each rescue, each need, each event, each adoption and through each loss. You have laughed with us and let us cry on your shoulders. You have given to us – your love, your heart, and your gifts of support. You will never know how much you mean to us. We could not do this work alone, we need YOU, and oh how you have been there for us!  We know many of you pray for us each day and we want to thank you so much! We could not do this work without God and the strength He gives us to get through each day.  I have been blessed to have a praying Mother who holds up Rescue K911 every day in her prayers. Thanks Mom!
That is why I am sitting here tonight  finally able to open my heart to you, our wonderful friends.  To be honest, this has been a tough summer for Rescue K911.  Several of our precious volunteers have been going through some really tough times in their personal lives, and like any family, when one of us hurts, we all hurt, and gather to share each others burden and pain.  There is a beloved spouse dying of cancer, a son having had heart and brain surgery after suffering strokes, and now rehab. I too will be facing surgery at UAB hospital this coming Tuesday (13th).  I have a mass in my abdomen that will need to be removed.  Praying it is not cancer, but as of now, don’t know for sure. If you would, please keep all of us here at Rescue K911 in your daily prayers, both two and four legged. We believe in your prayers! We need your prayers! Please pray for healing for us… for faith… for grace…for comfort in what we must face each day.
Our mission remains the same, to rescue the lost and homeless
and with God’s help and our continued determination… always will be.
Thank you for all your love, prayers and support.
Thank you so much!
Larry & Loraine
& all the little ones of Rescue K911


I promise I will take your unwanted animals.

I will heal their wounds, their diseases, their broken bones.

I will give them the medical attention they need and deserve.

I will nurture their starvation and give them a warm place to sleep. (more…)
