Gadget's Foster Mom refers to him as the Matthew McConaughey of dogs because he is blonde, scruffy and very charming. Gadget is also a true terrier: friendly and bouncy and tons of fun. He loves to run and play outside with other dogs, and has an amazingly high vertical jump which is why he requires a 6ft privacy fenced in yard. He would do best in a home with another calm but playful (not dominant) dog and without cats and young children. He has been working extensively with an Animal Behaviorist for about a year and has made tremendous progress.

About AHeinz57 Pet Rescue & Transport, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

AHeinz57 Pet Rescue & Transport, Inc. is a 501(c)3, non-profit animal welfare organization based in Adel, Iowa. In addition to caring for our local strays, we are working to bridge the gap between traditional animal shelters and no-kill rescues in 2 different ways: 1) By providing free transportation for dogs and cats from traditional shelters to no-kill rescues all over the Midwest and Canada. We also provide overnight rest stops for our furry travelers and temporary housing for those whose time has run out at the shelters, but have to wait for a foster spot to open up in one of the rescues; 2) By pulling as many dogs out of traditional shelters that are on death row and placing them in foster homes and forever homes thru our organization.

Our Adoption Process...

3) A home visit is mandatory prior to adoption.

4) Veterinarian references checked.

5) Confirmation on pet policies with landlords if appropriate.

*Please note that AHeinz57 does not believe in keeping dogs and cats outside and will not adopt to families looking for outdoor pets. AHeinz57 retains the right to refuse any potential adopters.
