The Top Dogs
Rico and Rufus
It takes two, to make the world go round. Rico and Rufus are part of a bonded pair that cannot be separated. These two best buddies are looking for their perfect future together as they join your family, don’t worry though, these two have plenty of love to go around. Rufus is a Lab/Aussie mix, about 6 years old. Rico, the second half of the pair, is a Black Lab mix, about 8 years old. They were found as strays, and no one came to claim them. They are good with other dogs and children, and ignore cats. They love to go on walks and play. Give these two pals a chance to become your "man's best friends".

Last Dog Gone Event
It was a wonderful time at Granite City. We managed to generate a record breaking $179 that will be going towards our vet bills. What a turn out! Thank you Quad Cities! We'll be doing this again soon!
Next Pawsome Gathering
Join us on for some totally rockin' bingo at Knights of Columbus. We know we're a bit early to call it Rocktoberfest - but it's close enough - besides, aren't there already Halloween items in stores?
When: 30 September 2017 from 630p to 1000p in Davenport.
Where: Knights Hall at 1111 West 35th Street.
K9 Kindness Pawking Lot Party
The K9 Kindness Pawking Lot Party (formerly Dog Dayz of Summer) is an event we hold once to twice a year. It usually takes place at either Davenport Petco or Dahl Ford.
We haven’t scheduled one for 2018 yet.
We usually have Trivia Nights in the fall, winter, and spring at the Knights of Columbus in Davenport. These nights are usually a great time for prize winning, and a heck of a lot of fun.
Next one is 27 January 2018 at 6pm.
General fundraisers are as frequent as we can make them. Sometimes they’re rummage sales, sometimes they’re adoption days. Either way, rescue stuff!
6-7 October 2017, time and location TBA.
Muggles joined our family at two months of age in February of 2009 after being born in December of 2008 in a K9 Kindness foster home. They had rescued Muggles’ mother - Annie - and father - Aussie - after they were surrendered to the group. We are so blessed that Debbie ended up selected our home out of many applications to adopt Muggles. She is the most kind, gentle, happy dog I have ever experienced.John L, Iowa City, IA
We adopted Arnie from K9 Kindness Rescue many years ago so that our other younger Boston Terrier would have someone to play with and our older dog could have a bit of a break. While he is not considered to be a "working breed" Arnie is diligent about going to work with me each day. Here is a photo of him working at his desk. We are so fortunate to have him in our lives.Ellonyia Y, Bettendorf, IA
We were drawn to Buster after viewing a video of him. He was a big lug, playing in the snow with tiny puppies. During the home visit I was apprehensive because he was a head taller sitting than our son was standing! But after he spent the next several minutes licking him we were sold! He's been the perfect addition to our family. He's approaching 10 years old and spends his days napping, snoring (loudly) and snuggling. He's just a big lover and we love him!Sara L, Davenport, IA
I was looking for a dog on Petfinder when I saw Molly. Next thing I knew, I was filling out the adoption paperwork. After a home inspection I met her at PetCo along with her foster mom. Love at first sight! She is such a blessing to me! We walk every day at her insistence. In winter we go to New Mexico and walk some more. She's brought adventure into my life with occasional rabbit or squirrel that dare venture into her yard. I love her to the moon and back!Carol S, Morrison, IL
Three Dogged Night
Co-founded the organization in 2004 and for some reason has not lost all of her sanity yet. But we're working on it.
Assumed the position as co-insane person in 2016. She writes the checks and stares at the books. A real pointer.
Brought onto the board in 2017 for her uncanny ability to do an accurate impersonation of Brenda Lee's "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree."
Has been with the group in some form since 2004. Finds it strange to talk about himself in the third person.
We're crazy about dogs. Really. We love dogs, right down to the point that they boss us around. But likewise, our aim and goal is to make sure that they have loving and forever homes. We've been around the block and seen a lot of different fire hydrants. Including that REALLY yellow one. Ask your dog, he knows the one.
