About

The Basics

K9 Kindness Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit organization started in April, 2004. All of our dogs are up to date on shots, on heart worm preventative, flea and tick preventative and are altered. Any other veterinary care that they need is done before the dogs are placed in homes. There are many ways to help K9 Kindness and the dogs! If you are interested in becoming involved with our rescue group, please email us for more information! And we always need more people to help care for our dogs until they find their forever homes. For information on this program, email us, too! We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and are licensed per State of Iowa Code 162.

A Brief History

K9 Kindness Rescue, Inc. was started in March of 2004 by founder and president Debbie Fraker. The rescue was originally the size of a few friends and three foster homes in Davenport, De Witt, and Blue Grass. The rescue's name was a play on K9 Child Dog Daycare who worked closely with the rescue. In 2013, we placed our 1,000th dog in a furever home. In 2014, we pulled our first dog from Puerto Rico after a trip by our vice president. We also celebrated 10 years of serving the Quad Cities and the Tristate region.

Adoption & Pull Area

K9 Kindness Rescue, Inc. serves a fairly large area. It includes portions of Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, and Wisconsin. In some circumstances we may expand or reduce this area, but usually this is about the range we keep things in. We have foster homes in both the Quad Cities area, as well as Clinton and Dubuque. As such, our adoption area mainly centers around these locations. Lastly, our pull areas tend to focus on locations local to where we have foster homes, but occasionally do pull from high risk shelters.
