G.R.I.F.F.I.N. K-9 Rescue was founded by Keith and Brittany Griffin. They have five dogs of their own and have loved and cared for dogs their entire lives. They began rescuing dogs shortly after getting married while both working full time jobs. Inspired by local rescues, Keith and Brittany became a licensed 501(c)(3) non-profit dog rescue in hopes of changing the lives of many abandoned dogs and the families that adopted them. They operate at a very low scale currently but they see the rescue multiplying in the coming years as they continue to learn and expand their name. Keith and Brittany Griffin live in Monroe, NC with their five beagles: Kevlar, Keeley, Kody, Kora, and Karly and German Shepherd, Kemba.
When we began G.R.I.F.F.I.N. K-9 Rescue, we wanted to incorporate the love of Jesus Christ while saving the lives of many dogs at the same time. Our goal is mainly to share Christ's love through each individual dog or puppy that comes through our rescue. We have based our rescue off of the bible verse, Psalms 145:9 which says, "The LORD is good to all, and His mercy is over all that He has made." We believe that as Christ created each and every one of us, he also created each and every animal on this Earth including dogs :). Therefore, we want to use our efforts in rescuing dogs from terrible shelter conditions as well as rescuing dogs that have been beaten, sick, or abandoned to show how Christ can rescue each and every one of us from our past conditions as well. We want everyone, whether they are adopters, volunteers, fosters, etc., to know that we love Jesus Christ and that we do this in honor of His name!
