Adoption Fee: 

Full Description:  My name is Racer, and there is no way you can look at my sweet face and not fall in love. I am a favorite for volunteers to walk because I am great on a leash and I am so eager to please. I love to check in with you and await your next direction! Volunteers also enjoy playing with me- I love toys and love to play fetch. Because I have been in the shelter for so long, I can be timid with new people and new situations. I just need a loving home with a family that will build up my confidence. As time has gone on, I have become less comfortable with small children, so I would do best in a home without them. I may become more comfortable with them again once I am out of the shelter. I can be selective with other dogs, but I am willing to meet others if they have the right personality that meshes with mine.  Please call the Humane Society of North Iowa at 641-423-6241 for more information.

Adoption fee covers the following veterinarian services: spay/neuter surgery, age appropriate vaccinations, flea and dewormer treatment, feline leukemia/FIV test in cats, and heartworm test for dogs.

A special volunteer wrote this poem for Racer~
I am safe warm and fed until I am found
I’m patiently waiting for my turnaround
I’m waiting for my person to open the gate
For their loving arms I will wait and wait
For now I am loved and not alone
I’m just a guy wait to hear “let’s go home”!
