Pet Rescue Agency: “We get a lot of return requests”

The Great Iowa Pet Fest ended on Sunday. Organizers say it’s a celebration of pets and pets, but it’s also an adoption opportunity.

CLIVE, Iowa – Sunday marked the end of the second Great Iowa Pet Fest, a celebration of pets and pets.

The festival was born during the pandemic and brings together pet owners, vendors, adoption agencies and all kinds of four-legged friends.

Ten-year-old Rex brought his rats, “Naked” and “Meatball”.

Another animal lover, Lisa Brincks came with her dog “Yukon” who loves to lounge around.

The festival was also an opportunity for potential pet owners to meet adoption agencies. Audrey Stamps, who works with AHeinz57 Pet Rescue and Transport in De Soto, says there is a strong demand for adoption, especially as more people are returning to work.

“It was difficult for some of them to adjust to having someone there all the time spending six, eight or more hours with no one at home,” Stamps said.

She said this means some owners are realizing that they cannot take care of their pets the way they could during the lockdown.

“So we’re getting a lot of return requests, and not just our rescue, but a lot of rescues,” Stamps said.

AHeinz57 was one of the many animal rescue groups present at the festival. If you are interested in adopting, you can find information on all rescues here.
