DUKE is a 3-year-old, 100-lb. bloodhound who needs a home without children. He is a big friendly boy who thinks he is a lapdog. DUKE needs to be adopted by someone with dog experience who is willing to work on his food aggression. This can be accomplished with patience and the help of an experienced trainer. DUKE’s family adores him and wants him to be adopted into a loving home; they do not want to take him to a shelter where he may be put down. He gets along with small and large dogs alike. He needs to be adopted by an experienced dog person.
Duke is microchipped, current on shots and neutered. There is a $100 adoption fee. Contact Sara at 563-543-6935 or email@example.com.
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.
