Pets at Our Rescue Group:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:
We are based in Iowa. We do rescues all over the US. We are fortunate to work with some great rescue groups and help each other out.
I unfortunately learned the hard way. My first dog as an adult came from a pet store. She is a puppy mill dog. She is great and required quite a bit of training. This opened up my eyes to the puppy mill industry and how our government sees dogs as agricultural animals. I decided with my passion for saving children and animals I would become a dog trainer. Once I had practice I decided there are so many dogs that need homes and I am lucky enough to live out my passion. I decided to start saving dogs. Now I save all animals. They get a great start with my training. I love my life, my job, and my rescue. I am blessed and so are the animals that get to live here.

Our Adoption Process:
Requirements For Adoption:
Fill out an application form on our website http://www.4thedogsrescue.org
We will set up a time for you to visit with the animal.
We will then set up a home visit. Preferably with the adoptable dog (we don't do this with cats), coming with us.
We do veterinarian checks and one personal reference check of someone who is not a member of your family.
You agree to our contract and a minimum of 2 follow up home visits within 90 days of adoption.
All fees are considered a donation. You have 10 days to request your donation back. All checks will not be cashed until that time is up. You are required to sign a contract. Part of that contract stipulates that we are allowed follow up home visits and if the adoption did not work out the animal would be returned to 4 The Dogs Rescue.
Dogs (varies depending on vetting bills)
$175.00 - $350.00
Cats (varies on vet bills, most are the low price range, it would only be a special needs cat that would cost more)
