Need to Give Up your Dog? Unexpected Pregnant Dog or Puppies?

We are K9 Lifeline Rescue, Inc.  your local Dog Rescue Group who can help you at no charge to re-home your dog or take unplanned litters of puppies or pregnant dogs.  We are located in Wisconsin & Illinois with contacts in Kentucky & Indiana.

It is never a good idea to give a dog away for free to anyone you do not know- especially on Facebook, Craig’s list or other social media as this is the first place people look for dogs to use as fight bait for dog fighting or lab research.  It IS happening all over Wisconsin, Illinois and beyond.  We would hate to see your beloved pet become a victim to a bad situation and suffer.  If you are in an URGENT situation it is better you take your dog to your local Animal Shelter where they can properly screen adopters.
Contact us for SAFE alternatives.
If you are wanting to surrender your dog directly to K9 Lifeline Rescue, Inc.  We MUST have at least 10 days notice to find a private, volunteer foster home for your dog.  We do NOT have a Shelter or Kennel.  We CANNOT take a dog without notice. 
If we agree to take your dog into a K9LLR volunteer foster home, all that is required of you is ANY dog 6 months or older need to have had a Negative Heartworm Test within the past 9 months & be current on Rabies (this is required by law).  K9LLR can pay for other basic vetting, spay or neuter surgery as long as you use one of our veterinarian partners.

PREGNANT DOGS & PUPPIES   We have a program called Spay it Forward (SIF). If you have a dog that is pregnant or has had a litter of puppies that was not planned K9 Lifeline Rescue, Inc. can help so this does not happen again. If you agree to give the puppies to K9 Lifeline Rescue, Inc. we will have them vetted & adopted out through our Rescue AND we will PAY to have the Mom SPAYED at one of our vet locations. We can provide a quality puppy food while the pups are still with the Mom.
