Holidog Bazaar is almost here

Dogs Forever focuses on taking dogs from life-threatening situations and providing the care–and time–they need to recover. We are never in a rush to get dogs adopted. Our emphasis is on quality of care, not quantity of dogs. We also offer hospice care for dogs who are terminally ill, providing a loving home in their final days.

We rely on fundraisers like our upcoming Holidog Bazaar to support our compassionate and life-saving work. Dogs Forever’s annual Holidog Bazaar will the this Saturday, Dec. 6, 10-3 upstairs at the History Center, 615 First Avenue SE in Cedar Rapids. While we do not receive funding from the city of Cedar Rapids or Linn County, nearly 40% of the dogs we have helped to date came from CR Animal Control. Our fundraisers are vital to supporting our mission of helping dogs in need in Eastern Iowa.

Please stop by and shop for the dogs and dog-loving people on your Christmas list. We’ll have unique dog themed t-shirts, homemade treats for dogs and their people, Christmas decor and much more. See you Saturday! Woof!

Dogs Forever Named a 2014 Top-Rated Nonprofit

Microsoft Word - Document5It’s all about the dogs at Dogs Forever. We take great care in matching each of our dogs with the right forever family. We do this because we believe our best friends who end up abandoned on the streets or at the city pound deserve better. Each dog, no matter their age, breed or health, wants only one thing–a loving home. And we do everything possible to make that happen.

Helping homeless dogs can be stressful and heartbreaking. But when we unite a dog with a loving family, the clouds part and the sun shines, pushing back the darkness. Thank you, from Dogs Forever’s founders, board members and volunteers, to all who wrote such kind and inspirational comments about our work. Because of you, we have been named a 2014 Top-Rated Nonprofit in the Cedar Rapids Community. We are honored to have your respect and support and look forward to bringing families and dogs together for many years to come.
