Hi! I'm Taz.... Did you just see that squirrel run by?? I'm a 2 1/2 year old lab-husky mix and have been asked by the nice people here at the pit stop to write about myself... I'm not a shy guy but this is hard. I've been looking for the perfect family so I do kind of know what I am looking for. I need a nice big fenced yard to run in - are you sure you didn't see that squirrel! I like to run so if you run too I would make an excellent running partner. I do like to play with other dogs but sometimes I get carried away and don't know my own strength and can play too hard so I do need to be the only dog in the home. They tell me that I would do best in a home with older kids, I have a tendency to play too much for the little ones. I recently went to stay with a trainer for a few weeks and she taught me several tips and tricks and I would love a home that would help me learn even more. I love to play fetch, and usually bring the ball right back. I've even been known to bring back a ball that wasn't even thrown for me. How cool is that?! Ooh...I also love to go for car rides and am usually a great passenger!! Hey will you throw that ball?? If you are interested in adopting me a handsome devil like me, please fill out an application at!

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.

AHeinz57 Pet Rescue & Transport, Inc. is a foster-based organization. We do not have a building where animals are housed. Our adoptable pets can be viewed online at:
