In memory of Rosalita Patience, Rosie Fund was established in 2016 to help other dogs like her find their forever family. The mission of Rosie Fund is to provide humans with the resources and education they need to give senior and harder-to-adopt dogs a better life.


Our board members and volunteers use their expertise and talents to identify dogs who are older and/or have other challenges that make them a harder-to-adopt dog. We get to know these dogs — working with them so we can film, photograph and create promotional content to shine a spotlight on often overlooked but lovable dogs. Additionally, some of these dogs benefit from having their adoption fee sponsored by Rosie Fund or by receiving a Rosie Life Starter Kit, which includes a collar, leash, ID tag, food, treats, toy, and additional gift card to purchase other dog necessities at the local shelter’s retail store.

Rosie Fund is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization with a Gold GuideStar Seal of Transparency. Donations are tax deductible and 100% of donations go towards supporting our programs of Sponsored Adoption Fees and Rosie Life Starter Kits.

Vinny finally found his forever home after almost 2 years with KC Pet Project. He was fortunate to spend most of that time in a foster home. To adopt, foster, or give a dog a much-needed day out, visit KC Pet Project or your local shelter or rescue group.
