This is one of the most wonderful life saving rescue groups. I can’t begin to tell all of the wonderful things they do. They always find a way to give dogs everything they need. We adopted a dog from them and now we are fostering. I think we will be foster failures.

Because this company implements industry leading vetting and top notch screening processes they are considered among the best of the best. Due diligence and hard work help place animals in need with the best adopters.

Such dedication. I was shocked when I found out they work this hard and don’t pay themselves anything. Volunteers are awesome. Keep up the good work.

The veterinary clinic I work for provides medical care for the rescue. We have always been impressed by their commitment to quality care. Many of the dogs need extensive treatment or surgery that other rescues would not even consider but they don’t hesitate. They make sure the dogs are healthy physically and mentally. They do a great job of adopting dogs to families that keep up the same quality of care.
We enjoy working with them and support their organization.

Love this rescue!!!! I adopted the love of my life from K9 RESQ and everything about it was great!!! They have helped me with several dogs over the last few years including finding homes for 2 who lived near me that were unwanted and neglected. Just this week they went to talk to my neighbor and offer help with a situation that was hurting all the pets in the neighborhood. Great people who walk the walk and help so many. Thank you K9 RESQ!!!!!!

We just adopted Bella from them today. She is perfect and we love her. It was a wonderful experience.
K9 Resq is a professional organization. The process took longer than I’d hoped but it was to make sure we were a good home and knew everything good and bad about Bella. When we are ready to adopt a second dog we will go to K9 Resq.

Love fostering for K9 ResQ! They put the dogs first, the fosters second, and themselves last. This is exactly what a nonprofit rescue should be! Time to save some more dogs!!!!

These people have hearts of gold and are not afraid of hard work. They have done so much to help our shelter and the dogs and cats we serve. They don’t just pull animals and care about making life better for them. If a run is dirty they jump right in and start scooping poop. They are not your average rescue. We love them for everything they do.

Heads and tails above most Alabama rescues.
K9 ResQ screens every home before placing a dog. They keep their standards high and stay in touch with their dogs as often as possible.
K9 also does more to get and keep dogs healthy than I’ve ever heard of. All health issues are handled before adoption and on their bill.

A truly great group I've worked with professionally many times when they bring in dogs and cats for emergency care. They do more to help the sick and injured than they talk about. I have seen them put 4 figure bills on their personal credit cards and then never mention it on their website or social media. The first time I met anyone from K9ResQ two of the ladies waited over 5 hours to have a stray cat seen and then cried for her even though they didn't know her. They put the $500 bill on a personal credit card. They rescue from the heart and aren't in it for praise or glory like most. Last week they brought in a paralyzed dog and got a very high quote on her surgery. The director said that was close to half their annual budget but they had promised the dog they would do everything they could for her and they would find a way to pay her bill. It is inspiring to watch them rescue and help people who love their pets. The director says years ago she promised God she would help the ones he put in her path. She sure does. If you are looking for a group to support or donate to, this is it!!!!

We are so fortunate to have this group serving our community. I love helping and seeing first hand the needs that are met because of these caring and enthusiastic people. They never ask anyone to do anything they don't do too. I am proud to be a part of such a respected rescue.

K9 ResQ is an awesome organization! I did some volunteer work with them last year at an adoption event. The people who run the rescue are kind and generous, they truly love animals and want the best for all animals. Even the ones that they don’t bring into rescue.

Our experience with K9 ResQ of AL has been nothing short of amazing! We recently did a foster to adopt program. Paula pours her heart and soul into these dogs! I have never encountered a rescue who does such a thorough job of vetting potential applicants. I highly recommend fostering or adopting through this rescue! We are so thankful for our new forever best friend!

K9 ResQ of Alabama is the greatest dog rescue in Birmingham. They are 100% in it for the dogs and are so easy to work with. I’ve fostered for several groups and this one is the best!
The dogs get nothing but top notch care. Instead of vaccinating K9 ResQ spends extra money to have titers tested so the dogs don’t get over vaccinated. One of my fosters had 2 major surgeries plus he was neutered and had his teeth cleaned all before he was adopted for $200. If a dog needs it, K9 ResQ finds a way to do it.
They deserve all the help they can get. Foster, adopt, donate. You won’t be sorry.

An amazing group to work with! K9 ResQ goes way above and beyond for the benefit of the dogs.

I started by fostering and then adopted. Foster failure! When I was fostering, the rescue offered everything I needed down to food and bowls. They didn’t hesitate when my foster needed to see an orthopedic specialist even though just that consultation appointment cost more than their adoption fee! They do everything they can to make sure the dog is as healthy and happy as possible. No other rescue comes close to their standards.

They need fosters, especially fosters who are willing to help with the costs of vetting and supplies. Every foster and adopter must pass a tough screening process to make sure each dog is placed in a great home.

K9 ResQ also needs donors! I’ve seen them spend over $2000 on very sick dogs but never charge more than a $200 adoption fee. Consider a monthly donation.

If you want to help an excellent organization this is it! With K9 ResQ you always know they hold themselves to the highest standards and never skimp when it comes to the health and happiness of a dog. See how you can get involved. k9resqofal.org. Donate. Foster. Adopt.
Thank you K9 ResQ.

K9 ResQ is fabulous! This group truly has a dogs best interest at heart. We personally have adopted a dog from them about 5 years ago and couldn't be happier with the entire process. And love our boy to pieces! He completed our family! I also reached out to them when I was trying to help save a dog that had been displaced and needed a new family. They didnt hesitate to step up and go above and beyond. Now that boy has a loving new family to live out his life. Paula is an amazing woman and truly lives and breathes doing what it takes to save animals lives. I'm forever grateful for them coming into my life.

We love Paula, Erik and Pat. They have helped us rescue, we have fostered through them and also adopted through them. They will do anything to help a needy animal, at whatever cost and by any means necessary. They truly love the fur babies. We loved fostering for them and especially adopting through them. K9 resq is the best rescue I have ever worked with and I have worked with dozens over the years.

I LOVE this organization! They rescued a tiny, 6 week old Boxer puppy from the side of the road and now he's mine! Working with K9 Reacue of Alabama to coordinate his shots, neuter surgery, and medicines (he was a sick little puppy) has been an absolute dream!! They are so helpful and truly passionate about helping these animals! I would highly recommend them to anyone searching for a new pet! I'm so thankful to them for helping my fiancé and I find our sweet boy!

This rescue is very dear to my heart. The work they do is absolutely amazing. They helped me rescue a sweet furbaby that had been abandoned close to my home. Through their help they were able to find her original owners and get her safe back to her family. I was incredibly grateful for them & to be able to work with them for a good cause. I support them in everything they do and would stand by them through any situation! Keep up the awesome work K9 ResQ!!!!

I adopted thru K9ResQofAL several years ago and will always be a supporter and advocate of this rescue, because they live what they love. Their passion and utmost concern is the well being and fair treatment of animals. They exude this standard in the dignity, grace and love they show towards all animals, constantly going above and beyond to meet the basic needs of animals in need.
