Our non-profit organization, Zen-K9, Inc., was founded in 2014 with a mission to aid and support the rescue, rehabilitation, and placement of abused and abandoned dogs. Our main purpose is to assist local rescue organizations in evaluating, training, rehabilitating, and re-homing these deserted canines. We provide consultation services in dog assessment, training, and enrichment; as well as hands-on training for shelter professionals and volunteers in proper handling techniques.

We aren’t just an everyday rescue organization …We rescue rescues!

Success Stories

Zen-K9 has saved the lives of countless rescue dogs from euthanasia. Most of them were labeled “un-adoptable” due to severe aggression and biting issues. We work with these types of dogs at our rehabilitation center in Palm Beach County in order to modify their behavior. We introduce them to our pack so they learn to socialize, gain confidence and become a balanced part of our society.
