Help save guys likes us!
These two boys are Enzo and Cosmo, both were on death row, Enzo was on borrowed time. Due to a couple of amazing fosters we were able to save them!
There are a lot of misconceptions about fostering. We have many potential adopters say they are "too busy" to foster. If you are too busy to foster, you are too busy to have a dog at all! The only difference is you have to have the foster meet it's potential adopter. We have a screening process so you don't meet with people who aren't a good fit.
We ALWAYS try to find a good fit for your home, we want not just the best for our dogs, but for our volunteers too! We always try to get them dog and cat tested beforehand so we know the best type of home to find for them.

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.
