I promise you, my rescue dog, no human will ever hurt you again.
You will never be sold and then dumped again.
You will never have to sleep in a kennel again,
and you will never be hungry or unloved again.
To you, my rescue dog, I pledge to never buy from a breeder,
but always save a life instead.
And I promise to never give up on you.
When you adopt a dog, you are not only signing the adoption contract that says that you will provide adequate care for your new friend, but you're also signing an unspoken agreement with the dog. It is a contract that only you and your dog will understand, and it is binding. But sometimes there are things that are unforeseen that can put that contract in jeopardy. That's why our promise extends beyond where our personal foster care ends. It's part of being a member of our rescue family.
Because of this, we take some extra steps to make sure that our dogs are comfortable while in our care, and after they leave our care. We are their only voice, and it is our responsibility to make sure that they are heard. Ultimately, the only shelter they should know once they leave their situation, is the shelter of Home. That's why we extend our promise beyond our rescue.
Developing a relationship, not executing an exchange. We've been criticized for wanting to remain too involved in the lives of the dogs we adopt out. We don't ever stop by unexpectedly to snoop around, but we may send emails or call every now and then just to check in and see how everything is going. We love getting pictures of the kids in their new homes and hearing stories of your successes. We are not selling you a dog and then walking away. If that's what you are looking for, go visit your local shelter. When we agree to take a dog into rescue, we are making a lifetime commitment to that dog, and we take that commitment VERY seriously.
Animal Care & Support
We will make sure that if there is any quality of life left to be had, that the dog will enjoy that time they have left. All the way down to travelling out of state for life saving heart surgeries.
K9 Kindness Rescue uses and recommends three key animal veterinarian clinics in the Quad Cities and the Corridor. In the Quad Cities, most of our pets are vetted at Animal Family Veterinary Care Center at 6011 North Brady Street in Davenport.
