In January 2007 we launched a mission on behalf of a basset hound named Appalachia-Bloom. "Apples" for short.
I became blind at the age of 7 years old. Upon my human researching and rehabilitating me so I could live a fulfilling and enjoyable life I became aware and shocked how many dogs, horses & animals were destroyed due to their disadvantage. Hence the idea for a sanctuary rescue was born.
In 2007 we launched LoveHandlers.org. A caring environment safe for dogs & horses in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains located south of Greeneville, Tennessee.
The mission has now rescued, rehabilitated & adopted into great families over 2000 dogs, and several horses. Our sanctuary is a second chance for them to enjoy a full quality life until they all find a home and or to live out their natural life in a comfortable secure environment. LoveHandlers is a no kill sanctuary operated 100% by your donations.
Thank you from Tip to Tail for your Love & generosity.
