About Forever Home Dog Rescue

Forever Home Dog Rescue is dedicated to rescuing homeless and abandoned animals primarily from high-kill shelters.

In working with committed volunteers, temporary care homes & local veterinarians, we are able to rescue dogs, provide them with loving temporary care, and find them well-matched, carefully screened forever homes. All our rescue dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and have all necessary veterinary care.

We were formed in January 2014 and are a 501c3 non-profit organization in central Iowa. We receive no government funding and rely completely on donations.
