To make faces like these feel loved and safe. 3 out of these 5 are from the K9 Krew.
"I wouldn't be able to give them all up" - Clearly we aren't capable either!
"I have other dogs or cats" - Almost EVERY K9 Kindness foster has dogs AND cats, we make it work!
"I'm not home enough, it isn't fair" - I promise we can find a dog with a low enough energy level to make it work, it's much more fair than euthanasia.
There are SO many things we can think of as to why NOT to do it, but the reality is, without fosters dogs die. It's not always easy, but it's ALWAYS rewarding. When you foster for us you become part of our krew, you are now our family too, and you have our support! If you love dogs and want to provide a happy temporary(and maybe later permanent) home to a dog, contact us! We can go over what your daily life is like and what would work best in your home.
**We know not every person is genuinely capable of fostering, we aren't trying to guilt anyone. It is possible for many who think it isn't though!**

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!

General fundraisers are as frequent as we can make them. Sometimes they’re rummage sales, sometimes they’re adoption days. Either way, rescue stuff!
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
Former adopter and mayor of Coralville, IA, John Lundell with one of the dogs he adopted from K9 Kindness. Wally was found in the parking lot of Wal-Mart in Davenport. A car was seen with someone dumping him and speeding off. And now he’s the co-first pup (with his sister, Muggles) of Coralville! Go Hawks!John L, Coralville, IA
Mable came to us from Sioux City, IA. She was not fond of other dogs, but quickly took over the household of her foster parents, who adopted Mabel. She now lives the good life in South Dakota, where her family moved a few months ago!Sioux City, IA
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.
Kim is new to the pack but has shown a real drive and passion Ask her to do something, and she does it! Even if that means taking over the check book.
Prefers her animals over people but still manages to handle it. Confused on why she's so good at reaching people when she'd rather hide from them.
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.
