Waverly Pet Rescue is NOT closing.
The recent announcement by Waverly Humane Society that they are closing
their operation in December, 2010 has caused some confusion.
Waverly Pet Rescue has never been associated with Waverly Humane Society.
We are totally separate organizations.

Waverly Pet Rescue is an all volunteer, no-kill rescue based in Waverly, Iowa.
Our adoptable animals live in loving foster homes.

Waverly Pet Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
Your donations are tax deductible.

Waverly Pet Rescue thanks Krissi Lea Photography for volunteering to take photos of our adoptable animals.

Deciding whether or not to declaw your kitty can be difficult. You certainly
don’t want kitty using your new sofa as a scratching post, but there are
alternatives to consider before you go to the extreme measure of declawing.
Keeping claws trimmed and directing kitty to an appropriate scratching post is an
option that works in many cases. You could also consider the “claw covers” available
at your local pet store and online. After trimming kitty’s claws, put a dab of the adhesive
included with the claw covers on the claw and position the soft cover. As kitty’s claws
grow, the covers will eventually come off and you can repeat the process. The covers
are available in several different colors so let your creative side shine!
As always, find a veterinarian you trust and ask him/her about various alternatives
to declawing. Your kitty will thank you!

**Our Organization**

Waverly Pet Rescue has been in continuous operation since August, 2006.
The organization was conceived and is operated by a fifth generation Waverly
native with a passion to help homeless animals.
Waverly Pet Rescue primarily serves small towns in northeast Iowa without
animal shelters or other means to care for homeless animals.
Waverly Pet Rescue animals live in loving volunteer foster homes until
adopted… no matter how long that takes.

Waverly Pet Rescue finds homes or suitable no-kill placements for
approximately 500 homeless cats and dogs each year.

During the past eight years, Waverly Pet Rescue has grown into a network of
foster homes, caring veterinarians and other volunteers, each bringing their
own skill set and love of animals to the organization.

Waverly Pet Rescue operates solely from donations and adoption fees.
We do not receive any grants or funding from the communities we serve.

Our administrative expenses are minimal, but the veterinary bills for our
animals are significant. Each animal is fully vetted before entering a foster
home and we always give our animals the care they need…sometimes at great
expense. Often, the adoption fee for an animal does not begin to cover the
actual cost to Waverly Pet Rescue for that animal’s expenses.

**Donations Needed**

If you would like to help, monetary donations are greatly appreciated
and are used to help pay medical expenses for the animals in our care.
Please send your donation to the address at the top of this page.

**Adopting a friend: IMPORTANT**

1. Waverly Pet Rescue does not hold pets. If asked for further information,
you should provide it as soon as possible or another home meeting all qualifications may
be chosen to adopt the pet you want. Please arrange to see the animal you
want as soon as possible because again, we do not hold them.

2. We do not adopt on a first come, first served basis. We select the best home.

3. We reserve the right to refuse anyone a pet, for any reason. We are devoted
to the animals in our care and do all we can to make sure they are placed in good

4. Waverly Pet Rescue is operated solely by volunteers. Please be patient with
our response back to you.

5. All prospective adopters are required to complete the application and interviewing
process before adoption approval.

6. No dogs will be adopted if they will be kept strictly outside. Cats will only
be adopted if they are to be kept strictly inside. If not already done,
all animals must be spayed or neutered within 30 days of adoption.
