Kona Benellie donates shelter blankets to Big Dog Ranch Rescue - a cage-free, open space rescue


As we continue to donate our Kona Benellie shelter blankets to homeless dogs throughout the nation, we meet people and pups from amazing rescues. I recently had the pleasure of donating many of our shelter blankets to and visiting BIG DOG RESCUE RANCH in Florida, the largest cage-free, no-kill dog rescue in the country. Their 33-acre, cage-free campus (yes, cage-free) is designed to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome these precious animals. They rescue dogs from from high-kill shelters and rescue dogs that were victims of natural disasters and storms.  Over the past 13 years, Big Dog Ranch Rescue has saved over 25,000 dogs.

The philosophy behind the Big Dog Ranch Rescue campus hinges on the novel idea that rescue facilities need not be sad places. Today, Big Dog Ranch Rescue is the happiest place on earth for dogs transitioning from homeless to forever homes.
