Saving lives and making happy tails...

K9 Kindness Rescue, Inc!

We have been rescuing furry friends and completing families across the Midwest since 2004!

What We Do

All in the Name of Rescue


We pull from kill shelters and take owner surrenders for furry kids that deserve a second chance at life.


We work with our vet partners to make sure that our rescue critters can put their best paw forward.


We place our furkids in loving forever homes and help complete their families.  We help write happy tails.

Our Critters Are in Foster Homes!

All of our adoptable pets are in Foster Homes.  The best chances of a meet and greet are to submit an adoption application.  Or catch us at an event.  You can find out more about upcoming events on our Facebook page!

Latest From Facebook

Last night we received a 911 call for a puppy in excruciating pain. He appeared to have double broken legs. We weren’t the first call as local is typically faster, but mywe were the last call. Unfortunately, we have seen it first hand and understand why local Houston rescues are full. This immediately became a group rescue effort to get this puppy out of pain as quickly as possible. Huge thanks to Dr. Bone at Big Thicket Vet, who dropped everything to go back to the clinic last night! Thank you to Melrose Park Neglected Dogs and Country Love Bullies in Houston who coordinated everything for us, Spring Fults, who met the finder at the vet for Cramer! Cramer is one lucky puppy! Honestly, we thought the night would not end well for him. Fortunately, he only has a broken back leg. His front is a sprain. Dr. Bone believes he was hit by a car and escaped major internal injuries. Maybe he is part cat, and used up one of his 9 lives, we don’t know, but we are so grateful he is doing so well!He was given heavy duty pain control, and splinted last night. Today his leg was casted. Cramer is on crate rest and pain medication while he heals. He will make his journey to Iowa when it is safe for him to travel.Bless everyone who came together in a minutes notice to help him and us! Cramer, we love you already, buddy!If you would like to contribute to his care, our PayPal and Venmo are below and his wish list will be in comments. We will update on bills tonight when we receive them. We aim to only fundraise enough necessary to cover Cramer’s expenses, but anything raised over his treatment costs, will go directly to help other dogs in need.Venmo: @K9KindnessRescuePayPal: paypal.me/k9kindnessrescue ...

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. If you have questions about other stuff or just want to inquire about our day to day stuff, please feel free to use the contact form.
