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.

Spencer, Milford, Emmestburg, Spirit Lake, Okoboji, Arnolds Park and all surrounding towns. Other states we have adopted to are NY, PA, MN and CO just to name a few.

About Our Shelter:

We are a non-profit, 501 (c) (3), no kill animal shelter that promotes spaying/neutering to help control the pet population. We have an agreement with the City of Spencer, Iowa, to find homes for all stray cats and dogs not claimed within three business days. Before this agreement was made, these loving pets were put to sleep!

We screen prossible adoptors before adopting any animal out. We work with other rescues groups to help find good homes for good pets. We are completely volunteer bases with no paid staff. We are all animal loves that want to help lost/abandoned/surrendered pets find a place where they are part of the family. People For Pets helps pets find loving homes and people find loving pets.

People For Pets will adopt cats or dogs to outdoor homes under the proper circumstances. Dogs will NOT be adopted to hunting ONLY homes. First and foremost he/she must be a beloved family pet.

Our Adoption Process:

If you would like to be considered for adoption you must complete an adoption application. E-mail us to obtain an application. The application will help us know which of our pets might be a match for your lifestyle and household.

After we receive your application your references will be checked and a decision will be made. If we cannot match you to a pet it is not a reflection on your home or family, many of our pets have very special needs and have already been abandoned at least once in their life. We are very careful in their placement and will only place them in a home that they are a perfect match for, which will lead to a lifetime of love and happiness for the pet and the adopting family.

Please visit our website for further information and our e-mail for our apllication.

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.
