Fur Fun Rescue
Fur Fun focuses on getting dogs into their forever homes. They are always looking for volunteers for fostering dogs while they wait for adoption, below is their mission:
"Fur Fun Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, foster-based dog rescue centered in Eastern Iowa and founded in September 2014. Our goal is to match dogs in need, fosters who care, and homes that are looking for the perfect addition.
Fur Fun relies on the help of volunteers and fosters who are willing to open their hearts and homes to dogs waiting to find their furever homes. At any given time we have between 40 and 60 dogs in our care. Most of our dogs have come from overcrowded shelters and are in danger of being euthanized. We also take dogs from owners who can no longer keep their dog and local stray dogs. In our care all dogs are given rabies and parvo/distemper vaccinations, are microchipped, spayed or neutered and heartworm tested. We also address any other medical needs they might have. Our dedicated foster homes work with the dogs on basic home manners and obedience. When our dogs are ready to find their forever homes, we match them with carefully screened adopters so they are never homeless again.
We are financially supported by private donations and adoption fees. We do not get any funds from any government contracts and we do not pay any salaries. All of our funds go to support our dogs. We are grateful to our donors and their continued support of Fur Fun Rescue so we can continue to save more lives. "
