DAVENPORT, Iowa-- K9 Kindness Rescue in Davenport needs more people to be foster parents for dogs in need.
Meet one-year-old Coco and his foster mom Jackie Kinney.
If it wasn't for her this gentle chocolate lab-boxer mix would be living on the streets. Or worse.
Shelters are looking for foster carers just like Jackie.
Dogs come to K9 Kindness Rescue Shelter from all over the country.
Shelters and pounds can be a lonely and stressful places for an abandoned dog to idle away while awaiting adoption.
Foster pet parents provide temporary care, love and comfort in their own homes.
