About Us

News

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.

  1. Our Safe Place offers many opportunities to support our work and help the dogs in need. A $100 donation will sponsor a dog kennel for one month or a donation in any amount helps buy food and provide veterinary care. You can also remember a beloved pet on our Memory Wall with a $25 donation. Please e-mail us for details at dogsforever@netins.net or call 319-481-0977. To make a donation, visit the "Donate" page on our web site at dog-rescue-iowa.org. Or mail us a check the old fashioned way to Dogs Forever, 809 Rockford Road SW, Cedar Rapids, IA 52404.

Adopting A Friend

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.

Who We Are

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. Contact us at 319-481-0977 for more information.
