Meet Hemera

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:

Hemera's owners are from Waverly, Iowa and they surrendered because they no longer could afford her. So she is a Waverly Pet Rescue dog now. Hemera is up to date on shots heartworm negative. She is underweight so we will get her spayed once the vet gives the ok to do that. She is living in a foster home.

Hemera is about 3 years old. Her previous owner took her in about 2 years ago from a co-worker who was abusing her. She can be scared of some men now. But not all because she warmed up immediately to her kind foster dad. Hemera sometimes will cower when you go to pet her, even by her foster mom, but as soon as she realizes you are not going to hurt her, she welcomes the petting. She is not aggressive at all, a very kind soul. She does well with other dogs. Right now she is resource guarding food and toys but we think that is because she is underweight and has not had enough food in the last 2 years. Her foster family is working on this with her. They put away the certain toys that was the issue. They are hoping with time once she knows she will never go hungry again, she will be ok eating around other dogs. We were told she does well with children and with cats. We will update this more as we get to know her. And after she is spayed.

10/30/22: Things are going great with Hemera in her foster home! It has been decided that since she was not used to ever loving with other dogs, it took her some time to figure things out with the other dogs. She had been around dogs and done well, but never lived with one. She is super sweet and friendly. She enjoys playing with the other dogs and is now starting to understand when another dog does not want to play. Her resource guarding is much better now too. Hemera is very smart and is looking to please and to get along with everyone. She may regress a bit in a new home, but she has proven it won't take long for her to figure things out.

11/18/22 UPDATE: She is doing wonderful! Continues to be such a love bug! She gained 4 lbs in the first week and a half we had her according to her initial physical weight, vs her spay date weight, so I am sure she was not fed/ watered enough prior to her being surrendered to the rescue. She still resource guards with food a bit, but is easily re-directed with the multiple bowls we have in the house. She is still having accidents while we sleep, but I have noticed it is less puddles, and she is no longer drinking a whole bowl when I put fresh water out, so think she is starting to learn it isn't necessary to drink so much at once.
I have been using a lot of positive reinforcement when I can tell she is experiencing a new situation and deals with it well (which has been A LOT, she is truly such a good natured dog) One thing that surprised me was that her and our basset Deakin, who at first had troubles with her being in his space are now buddies! Playing all the time, and very tolerant of each other. He still lets her know when he has had enough, as naturally her Husky energy lasts longer than his, but I so enjoy seeing their bond developing! So interesting to see how with each foster we have had how that 2 week window of acclimation really does make a difference!

Hemera deserves the best home out there! A forever home with kind people who talk softly. Please apply today!

Will someone please adopt Herema and give her a forever home? $350.00 adoption fee.

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.
