We are trying to find just the right home for Roman and Spike.  They found themselves without a home last January.  Since they had been together for twelve years, this was a big change.  But a thoughtful couple have been caring for them all this time.  Because they have their own two dogs, they are looking for a new forever home that will work for both Roman and Spike.

Just look at them.  Don't they look like they are 'best buds'?  It would be awesome if they could find a new home together, but separating them is not a deal breaker.

Both are male and neutered, and up to date on their shots.  Spike weighs 5 lbs and Roman 90 lbs.  They both get along with other dogs, although Roman does best with females.  Roman likes to go for a walk every day.  They both do best with older children.

If you are interested in both or either, please contact Melissa at 563-542-5609 or

About Safe Haven of Iowa County

About Our Rescue Group...

Our Mission
Safe Haven of Iowa County is a rescue organization whose mission is to rescue, protect, spay/neuter and find good homes for stray animals in Iowa County, Iowa. We strive to offer the best in traditional veterinary care with relationships built with local veternarians and, whenever possible, holistic health care for sick and injured animals in our care.
While sheltering homeless pets is vitally important, Safe Haven of Iowa County also understands that pet shelters are not a solution to the nations overpopulation problem. It is essential that we:

-Teach respect for living things

-Reinforce the bond between humans and animals

-advocate for and help provide assistance to large scale spay and nuetering programs

-Teach and model responsible pet ownership

These are all things that will help us in our effort to stop the needless killing of cats and dogs in our shelters and pounds.

We ask that our community understand that while we pamper and care for our pets they are all still missing the most important thing in their life...a loving home and family of thier own.

Our Adoption Process...

It is the policy of Safe Haven of Iowa County that all animals adopted from our facility will be spayed or neutered upon adoption, or the adopter will sign a spay/neuter agreement and follow up with veterinary records once the operation has been complete for puppies and kittens. We firmly believe that controlling the animal population is the only way to reduce the population of animals in rescue facilities such as ours and those shelters that do destroy animals for no reason other than overpopulation.

It is our policy that adoptions are conducted a minimum of 24 hours after your initial visit with the animal and submission of the adoption application. This allows us time to call your references, perform home inspection as well as giving you the opportunity to sleep on your decision and make sure it is what you really want.

Compare the adoption fees below with the routine animal health care and spay / neuter costs you would have to pay. Without the generous help of the local veterinarians we would never be able to include such services at this fee.

We have the right to refuse ANY adoption for ANY reason.

Dogs & Puppies: Adoption fees include spaying or neutering (if under 4 months a voucher is provided for surgery at one of our participating veterinarians), heartworm test, distemper, rabies, worming, ear cleaning, flea control if needed.

Fee: $200.00

Cats & Kittens: Adoption fees include spaying or neutering (if under 4 months a voucher is provided for surgery at one of our participating veterinarians), FeLv and FIV testing, distemper, rabies and worming, ear cleaning, and flea control if needed.

Fee: $50.00

All puppies and kittens adopted without spay/neuter completed will have a contract stating the animals will be altered by the time it is 6 months old. Follow up calls will be made to confirm completion of surgery.
