Meet Ruxin

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:

Ruxin's owner is from Waverly, Iowa and he surrendered him because Ruxin kept running away and he didn't have time for Ruxin anymore. Ruxin was found on craigslist a couple years ago when the owner was married because the wife really wanted a dog. Well, the wife left the marriage for a new boyfriend and also left Ruxin. The husband did his best for a year and a half on his own but decided Ruxin deserves a better home with someone that has more time for him. So Ruxin is a Waverly Pet Rescue dog now. Ruxin is up to date on shots, heartworm negative, and neutered. He is living in a foster home.

Ruxin is about 7 years old now. He is a sweet boy and very friendly. He loves attention and wants to be where you are. He would be perfect for someone looking for a best friend. Ruxin does great with other dogs, no issues at all. Ruxin does pretty good with cats. He sometimes wants to play with them even if they don't want to play. So a cat that likes dogs but can out him in his place if needed would be best. Ruxin loves children and is great with them. He would be best in a home with older children because he might knock a little one down by accident. Ruxin is full of energy and needs a job. He needs an owner that can take him for talks or even better, a runner. He needs someone who can play with him, fetch or whatnot to wear out that energy he has. A 6 foot tall fence is required for Ruxin. He will run off ever chance he can get so again, this fence is required,

Ruxin deserves the best home out there! Please apply today!

Will someone please adopt Ruxin and give him a forever home? $250.00 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.
