AHeinz57 Pet Rescue & Transport began at the end of 2008 with 2 people in a garage.  Since that time we have grown to 700+ volunteers, 4 transport vehicles, 30,000 Facebook followers, gained National attention in Animal Planet's Puppy Bowl 4 yrs running, became one of the largest rescues in Iowa, became an important rescue for law enforcement agencies, and most importantly rescued over 5,000 homeless dogs.

Where WE Have Been


We need your help to build our new buildings!  We have naming opportunities for all levels of giving.  We also have many ways for you to give:  monetary giving, stock gifting, structured giving, etc.  You can even donate a tree, bush, or bench in our memorial garden.  We also need manpower!  Time and Talents are as important as Treasure!

We have outgrown our building!  We have become the go-to dog resource for our community, other rural communities around Iowa, and law enforcement agencies in our area.  The growing demand for us to help with dogs and puppies requires us to build a bigger building and have a self-sustaining plan in place to ensure our future as a vital resource for our community.
