Formed January 2014, Forever Home Dog Rescue is a fully licensed, 501(c)3 pending rescue located in central Iowa. We are dedicated to rescuing homeless and abandoned animals primarily from high-kill shelters. In working with committed volunteers, foster homes & local veterinarians, we are able to rescue dogs, provide them with loving temporary care, and find them well-matched, carefully screened forever homes. All our rescue dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and have all necessary veterinary care.
