The Rescue Partners And Team
Doing what we can, with what we have to make a difference!
Founder / Partner
Kerry completely fell into the dog rescue world by fate - but a passion for dogs has made her stick it out and establish K9 Partners as a respectable dog rescue who sticks to her simple principles. We stick to what we know and don't over stretch ourselves financially or with the amount of dogs we help.
Kerry has NINE of her own dogs, which range from a Saint Bernard to a French Bulldog x Staff - all are rescues.
Kerry is a firm believer in natural feeding and will happily promote the raw meat diet to anyone willing to listen and learn about the benefits.
Kerry is now a Mum, and for that reason isn't involved in the daily running of the rescue. She can be contact via the rescue email:-
Rachel has now been promoted to a Partner within the rescue, and is responsible for overseeing the daily running of K9 Partners. She has her own pack of four dogs - a Staffie x, Rotti x Mastiff and two Presa Canarios which were both adopted from K9Partners. She also fosters for us, and boards dogs needing training or correction for behavioural issues. In addition to the work and support she gives the rescue, she also runs her own doggie day care and boarding facility in the Chichester area., where she also does 'one on one dog training and deals with behavioral issues. She has many years of hands on experience with dogs, in particular the bull breeds and mastiffs. Rachel originally joined the team as fundraiser, but in recent years she has supported, advised and helped with the rehabilitation of some of our more challenging dogs.

Rachael is mum to four lovely girls and her own pack of rescue dogs. She also owns a couple of horses. She works like all of us, but still manages to find the time to foster for us and support the rescue with her creative fundraising skills from her home in Blackpool,.
Rachael is a very experienced dog owner and in the past she has raised a number of litters of puppies for us.; and is currently fostering three elderly St. Bernard dogs.
She is a dedicated and knowledgeable raw feeder who promotes the holistic approach to canine welfare where ever possible.
