How to Help

There are a number of ways to help Heading Home K9 Rescue!

FOSTER: If you have ever thought of fostering, now is the time! We cannot continue to save dogs without foster homes. Please read through our Fostering 101 document to answer any questions you might have: Fostering 101. If you're ready to jump in to foster, please email Katie at

DONATE: You can donate via the PayPal button on the left-hand side of the page. If you would like to mail a check, you can mail checks made out to Heading Home K9 Rescue to PO Box 385532, Minneapolis, MN 55438.

We have an Amazon Wishlist where you can purchase supplies for the dogs in our care and ship directly to an HHK9 respresentative. You can also drop donations off at any of our mini adoption events at Chuck and Don's (See our Adoption Dates & Locations page for an up to date listing of our events. You can find our wishlist here!

Our most needed items include:

Dry dog food--Any brand is greatly appreciated, though we prefer chicken-based if possible.

Canned dog food--Particularly high quality, high-calorie canned food as we use this to fatten up our skinny dogs!

Dog treats--Any and all treats! Crunchy treats like milkbones, soft treats for training. The dogs love any and all treats and our fosters sure appreciate them too!

Sturdy dog toys--Kongs, JW Pet, Nylabone, and Benebone are some of our favorites

Bones--These are an absolute favorite of the dogs! Our fosters love them too to keep their sometimes naughty fosters occupied. Any type, flavor, size is appreciated.

Blankets, sheets, bedding, and towels--We are happy to accept used/gently used as well!
