We are a non-profit organization that was created to help reduce the stray population in the Tama/Toledo area. Our Board of Directors are strong animal lovers who support reducing the overall pet population through neutering/spaying ALL animals at our expense. This is costly but very much worth it. We want to see our animals happy, healthy, and safe. We are all volunteers & we always need help with computer work, direct animal care, shopping, and cleaning. If you are interested, give us a call or stop in.
Come Meet Our Pets...
1406 E. 5th Street, Tama, Iowa. About an hour drive from Cedar Rapids & Waterloo. We are a little over an hour from Des Moines. We are always open Saturdays 9-12 & all other days of the week so give us a call to set up a time. Our dogs are walked twice a day so you can usually find a volunteer when you stop by.
Our Adoption Process...
$40 for a cat, $80 for a dog. All animals are spayed/neutered before they can be adopted. All vaccinations are given by our vet Dr. Cristi Downs. We require a pre-adoption screening (which can be done through email) and an adoption contract signed the day of the adoption. We do a background vet check and call landlords (if the potential owners are renting).
