Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
We will get them vaccinated and sterilized as soon as we can after the 5 day holding period or soon after a dog is surrendered. The price for adoption will be $120 and just like it is now.
Thanks to all who support the Pottawattamie County Animal Shelter.
We are located outside of Council Bluffs, Iowa just off I-29 South at exit 42 (Bellevue exit). Turn right onto 189th street which is the access road to Mid-American Energy past the Saddle Store and the trucking company, and take your first left on Applewood Road. We are a block up on your right....you can't miss us. Shelter hours are Monday through Friday, 9am - 4pm and Saturday, 9am - 2pm. Due to the nature of animal control work, it is best if you make an appointment to see a dog by calling the shelter at (712) 366-0152. For animal control issues, call (712) 366-1143. The shelter is closed all major holidays.
SORRY! Credit or Debit cards are not accepted. Cash or checks only.
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 or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
