Why Foster?

We promise you are capable


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!**

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!

General Fundraisers

General fundraisers are as frequent as we can make them.  Sometimes they’re rummage sales, sometimes they’re adoption days.  Either way, rescue stuff!

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.

Kristina M.

About Us
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 on the left.
