We are a special needs dog rescue based in Orlando, FL . Currently on the road to our dream of a South Carolina special-needs dog sanctuary, our passion lies with dogs that are viewed as "imperfect" or "different". Until the sanctuary project is realized, we work with a network of Central Florida foster homes and are always looking for foster families to partner with in order to save and rehabilitate dogs.
We are committed to rescuing, rehabilitating, and re-homing specially-abled dogs.
We strive to evolve into LoveyLoaves Sanctuary, a peaceful haven for specially-abled dogs. LoveyLoaves Sanctuary will provide the medical, emotional, and behavioral therapies necessary for successful rehabilitation. Through community outreach and education, we will encourage and promote the acceptance of specially-abled dogs into loving and capable forever homes.
