I’m a little shy but very sweet, and my name is Kara. I’m good about doing my business outside and like playing with the other small dogs here. I might be a little lonely without another animal to keep me company, so I might be happier with a brother/sister. When it’s cold, I’m not much for going outside, but I will if made to. No worries though, I know how to use puppy pads when I can’t get outside. I’m just learning about leashes with my harness but I’m getting better. If you have a cat, no sweat. I get along with the ones here where I’m staying. If you can keep me warm and loved and be patient with me while I settle in, I’ll be your best friend forever! I love to talk in my own little language, so if you adopt me, I’ll never stop telling you how happy I am. And if you get me a couple of squeaky toys, that will seal the deal.

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.
