Treasured k9s, Inc.501(c)(3), established in June, 2008, is a new rescue organization specializing in rescuing and re-homing Korean Jindo dogs throughout the U.S. Treasured k9s, Inc. focuses primarily on the East Coast, but will make an effort to help a Jindo in need wherever it may be. We will also help other canine breeds when we are able to.
Treasured k9s requires that all applicants are willing and able to come to the foster home or to a jointly agreed upon neutral territory to meet the dog. The applicant should bring as many members of the household as possible to meet the dog including: spouse/partner, children and other dogs. If the initial meeting is successful, a home visit is schedule. A home visit may be conducted by either the foster home, another Treasured k9s volunteer or a volunteer from another rescue, depending on who is available and the closest. The dog may or may not be brought to the home visit depending on who conducts the home visit. Once the home visit is complete and it appears that the dog and applicant are a good match, the applicant is cleared to adopt. The adoption is scheduled and the adoption process is finalized when the adopter signs the contract and pays the adoption fee (fee schedule in development).
Treasured k9s requires the applicant to be willing and able to come to pick up the dog in person to finalize the adoption. Treasured k9s does not transport dogs to adopters. Treasured k9s permits long distance and out-of-state adoptions and the same adoption process and policies outlined above apply.

Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
