Mostly Johnson County, Iowa; sometimes we are able to provide help to contiguous counties.

About Our Shelter:

We're a nonprofit organization funded by donations. Although we're state-licensed, we don't operate a sheltering facility. Instead, we recruit foster caregivers who take the animls into their private homes until forever homes are found.

We support/sponsor humane education aimed at developing more compassion, better understanding, and a deeper appreciation of the diversity of animals in our world. We also work to advance community understanding of the need for animal protection and advocacy.

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption fee is $65 and we have a 24-hour waiting period after adopters have been approved. Our Adoption Contract is downloadable from our website.

Our cats have been screened for FeLV, FIV, and internal parasites. Dogs have been screened for heartworm. All animals are current on vaccinations and spayed/neutered according to age.

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
