Nelly is a sweet, young pit bull. Who could resist that face?! She loves people and would do best in a home with older children (just because she’s very strong and gets excited to see you, and may accidentally knock little kids down), and big dogs. Nelly loves to play and sometimes plays a little too rough for small dogs or cats. She does need a 6-ft physical fence so that she can explore and play safely. She walks well on a leash and is pretty much potty-trained. If you’re interested in adopting Nelly, please fill out our adoption application today!

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.
