Meet Cooper ADOPTED:)

WE ARE NOT A SHELTER. WE ARE A NO-KILL 501-C-3 NON-PROFIT RESCUE: To see an animal, you must fill out an application first and then once approved, we can set up for you to meet the animal you are interested in.

Here is the Dog Application that you can copy and paste into a browser:

Cooper came from Cedar Bend Humane Society in Waterloo. They felt he would really benefit being in a foster home since shelter life can be hard on a dog. So Cooper is now a Waverly Pet Rescue dog. He is up to date on shots, dewormed, treated with Frontlline, tested heartworm negative, started on heartguard and neutered. He also has an ear infectionand UTI that our vet is treating. He will go in for another re-check again soon.

Cooper is about 9 years old and weighs about 26 pounds. He is a very curious pooch. He likes to go for slow paced walks because he has to check everything out. Once in a while he will "steal" things around the house which is actually quite cute. He gets along well with other dogs. He will sometimes play with toys and bones, and can be a little possessive towards other dogs, but nothing too extreme. He sleeps well all night. He goes in the kennel good during the day with some treat motivation. He may need a little work on house breaking in a new home. He is very food driven and needs to learn some manners when it is feeding time and in the kitchen in general. He will be vocal when he is not happy about something. He likes to lay on the couch or curl up on a blanket on the floor. He is a sweet boy who likes everyone, likes attention, and can be irresistible with those sad puppy dog eyes and big droopy ears.

Because of his breed, a fenced in yard is required. He will be happiest this way so he can sniff and roam all he wants and be safe while he does it.

6/29/20 UPDATE: Cooper is starting to go to the door now when he wants to go outside. He is also doing much better in the kitchen and are not jumping up on the cabinets anything like he was at first.

7/27/20 UPDATE: I think he would probably be okay with young children. He has never shown any aggression towards us; even with his food bowl while eating. He likes attention and likes to snuggle. There isn't any place on his body that he doesn't like to be touched. He will jump up on you sometimes, but I think that could be corrected.

Will someone please adopt Cooper and give him a forever home? $125.00 adoption fee.

WE ARE A NO-KILL 501-C-3 NON-PROFIT RESCUE. All donations are tax deductible. We do not have a shelter. All pets live in foster homes. We only adopt to indoor homes. To see an animal, you must fill out an application first and then once approved, we can set up for you to meet the animal you are interested in. We do background checks on all applicants. If you have assault, domestic abuse, or drug charges please do not apply. If you have questions, please send an email to

All animals see a vet for shots and normal exams. If they appear healthy and there are no obvious health concerns, then extensive testing is not done. This is normal procedure for pet rescues and shelters.
Waverly Pet Rescue puts a lot of money into medical care for each dog and cat we take in. $350 is the average cost for basic care. This does not include if the animal had an injury, required extra flea / ear mite treatments, or needed extra days at the vet office.
