ARL says recent bailouts still not ready for adoption

DES MOINES, Iowa — The Iowa Animal Rescue League continues to care for its most recent rescues.

Some of the dogs we received an update for are a Great Dane who was found starving in a wire crate and the most recent rescue from a puppy mill near Hedrick.

Since arriving at ARL, all of the malnourished dogs have gained weight and have been moved to either foster care or the main ARL location.

Staff say the Great Dane they call “Clyde” weighs 20 pounds and lives and trains with his foster family.

He’s not quite ready for adoption, but some dogs in the Keokuk County group are getting close.

“We just moved the last batch from our location here where we have a lot of dogs to our main location. And many of them are about to be adopted. There were quite a few puppies, so these puppies are still in foster homes. As soon as they are ready, they will be placed on the website and ready for adoption, said ARL’s Joe Stafford.
