Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
We rely heavily on volunteers to help us with the daily cleaning, socialization, and walking the dogs. We also need volunteers to help with our fundraising events. If you would like to help stop in and fill out a volunteer application, or download our volunteer application on our website.
Due to time contraints we are not able to keep all adoptable pets online at all times. It's a lot of work, and the most important thing is to take care of the animal's physical needs!! If you want to see more of our adoptable pets come visit them in person. You can learn more about us, visit our website www.almosthomeiowa.org
Open 7 days a week 11 AM - 5:30 PM
The adoption fees are $100 for dogs, and $50 for cats. These prices are subject to change.
We require a $50 deposit on all un-altered animals and we will return your deposit to you once your animal has been altered. It is Iowa Law that all pets adopted from shelters are to be spayed/neutered.
All animals adopted from the Humane Society of North Central Iowa will receive a free health exam from a number of veterinarians in the area. The free health exam must be done within one week of adoption. In the case that your veterinarian feels that the pet you adopted is not in good health, you may return the animal for a full refund within the first days.
Please note, we do not adopt animals that are intended to be outside pets only. Our animals are to be adopted as household companions and kept as such, as stated in our adoption contract.
We reserve the right to refuse adoptions.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
