Beagles are one of the most popular breeds in America. So why is TAYLOR still waiting for a home? This friendly gent is an 8-year-old, 30-lb. beagle who loves to fall asleep on his foster dad's lap and dream of the day when his forever family comes to take him home. In addition to snoozing, Taylor enjoys a good romp outside, sniffing the breeze and playing "catch me if you can" with his foster dad. Taylor was a stray in a county with no animal shelter. He was held at the local vet clinic for a month. When no one claimed Taylor and no other rescue came forward to help him, Taylor was at risk of being euthanzied. Dogs Forever gladly took this friendly senior into its care. TAYLOR has been anxiously waiting for his own home for over a year now. Are you the special person or family that can make Taylor's dreams come true? There is an adoption application and a fee of $80-$125; you pay the amount that's right for you. If you are 65 years or older, we will waive the adoption fee as part of our "Seniors for Seniors" program. In addition, Dogs Forever volunteers will be available to transport Taylor when he needs to visit the vet if you are unable to do so. If your health changes, we will take Taylor while you recover or we can place him with another senior. Please call us TODAY. Taylor can't wait to meet you!

Dogs Forever Safe Place provides refuge for homeless dogs, where they receive loving care, free of fear and free of the threat of being euthanized. This is their sanctuary until Dogs Forever places them with a reputable rescue, a no-kill shelter or a forever family.
The dogs at Safe Place come from kill shelters where they were at risk of being euthanized and from Iowa counties that have no animal shelter.
Dogs Forever Safe Place is located at 3800 Wilson Avenue SW in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. We are in the building behind Hills Bank. Use the north/side entrance. Our hours are 11-3 Saturday and by appointment.
Adopters are required to complete an adoption form. They need to provide either a vet reference or two personal references. Once reference checks are complete, we arrange for a home visit.
Adoption fees are on a sliding scale; adopters choose the amount that is right for them. Our adoption fees for senior dogs (7 years and older) are on a sliding scale of $80 to $125; fees for dogs 1-6 years are on a sliding scale of $100-$150; fees for dogs under 1 year of age are on a sliding scale of $125-$175.
If you are 65 years or older, the adoption fee is waived when you adopt a senior dog. All Dogs Forever dogs have been spayed or neutered, vaccinated and tested for heartworm and Lyme disease. They are on heartworm preventative.
Adopters should live within two hours of Cedar Rapids, Iowa. This is because home visits are part of our adoption process. Since we are all volunteers, it needs to be a reasonable driving distance.
