Facts about Wilbur 22

  • ID#: 34479586
Wilbur is a sweet and affectionate guy who is much more active and playful than his age would suggest. He came from a tough situation, but is doing a fabulous job gaining confidence in all aspects of life. It’s tough to go outside and learn to potty in the cold after always living indoors, but warmer days are ahead and a nice sweater helps keep him warm enough to concentrate on taking care of business! He gets along with children and adults, as well as other dogs, and he is fine in his kennel overnight as long as his foster family doesn’t sleep overly late in the morning! Other than that, he’s really not much of a barker. Apply today at aheinz57.com to meet Wilbur and see if you could be his forever home!

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.
