Since 2006, K94U Not for Profit no kill rescue has placed over 3,000 dogs to wonderful homes.
Founded by Delcie Cullin, K94U doesn’t have a shelter so they board the dogs with local vets or use foster homes until the dogs get placed into permanent homes.
Located in Coral Springs, they have been setting up adoptions outside of Pet Supermarket on University Drive every Saturday for the past two years without any problem until about three months ago when Code Enforcement told them they had to stop.
“We were told that we needed a permit and when went there to get a permit, there was none available for what we do. We want to abide by the rules. We were thinking, since were are helping the city and county by helping to remove the burden from them, maybe they can create a permit that we could obtain,” said Delcie Cullin.
Luckily on Saturday, they had the help of Robert Sutton, Candidate for Broward County Commission. He felt badly for K94U’s plight and knew that if he held a campaign event in that area, they would be protected from code compliance for another day.
Sutton held a Cinco De Mayo event on Saturday where he combined a Meet and Greet for himself along with a Dog Fashion Show to benefit K94U. All of it was hosted by Meyer’s Latin Flair Restaurant which is located nearby.
“We hoped to have more of a turnout, but due to Cinco De Mayo there were many other events to compete with,” said Cullin.
K94U desperately needs needs financial help. They are a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization that is seeking financial support to try and rent or buy a facility to keep the dogs until they are adopted. People can go to their web site K94URescue.com or Email us them at adopt@k94Urescue.com. You can find them on Facebook as well.
Please consider adopting one of their wonderful dogs. Also, if anyone can please get code enforcement from stopping them from holding adoptions in front of Pet Supermarket on the weekends, it would also help save more dogs and hel them find their forever homes.
