"Dogs are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole."

About Us

We are a small non-profit 501(c)3 organization, dedicated to animal care and protection. We assist shelters and other rescues (both in our local community and beyond) by finding loving forever homes for neglected, abandoned and homeless animals. Our goal is to promote responsible animal ownership by educating the wider public on the importance of spay/neuter, positive training and pet health care.

Knine Rescue was originally founded in 2004 by Chris Biscardi, and officially registered as a non profit in June 2007. Chris passed away unexpectedly in 2012. Since then friends and adopters have come together to keep her dream alive. She believed that every dog deserves a loving home. “Dogs are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole” was her favorite quote.

With an amazing team of volunteers, fosters, local veterinarians, trainers, and boarding facilities, we are able to rescue hundreds of animals and provide them with loving temporary care, then find well-matched, carefully screened forever homes.

If we can assist you in selecting the right pet, please reach out today!
