We are located at 809 Rockford Road SW in Cedar Rapids. We are open to the public every Saturday 11-3.
We provide a safe refuge for at-risk dogs, where they are free of pain, fear and the threat of euthanasia, while they wait for a rescue to take them in or a family to adopt them.
Our adoption fees are on a sliding scale of $90-$125 for senior dogs 7 years and older; a sliding scale of $125-$175 for dogs up to 6 years of age; and a sliding scale of $150-$200 for puppies under one year of age. Our sliding scales allow you to choose the amount that's right for you. Fees are waived for adopters who are 65 years or more who adopt a senior dog. All dogs are spayed or neutered, current on vaccinations, checked for heartworm and on heartworm preventative.
Dogs Forever was founded by Mike and Nancy Crist, who have over 20 years of combined dog rescue experience. Dogs Forever is committed to helping abused, neglected and homeless dogs in Eastern Iowa. We rescue dogs of all breeds, sizes and ages, but place an emphasis on senior dogs. Through our Seniors for Seniors program, we match senior dogs with senior people at no cost.
