The Humane Society of North Central Iowa is a non-profit, no-kill shelter serving North Central Iowa. We stand for humane treatment of animals and spaying and neutering pets.
We rely heavily on volunteers to help us with the daily cleaning, socialization, and walking the dogs. We also need volunteers to help with our fundraising events. If you would like to help stop in and fill out a volunteer application, or download our volunteer application on our website.
Due to time contraints we are not able to keep all adoptable pets online at all times. It's a lot of work, and the most important thing is to take care of the animal's physical needs!! If you want to see more of our adoptable pets come visit them in person. You can learn more about us, visit our website www.almosthomeiowa.org

Our Adoption Process...
To adopt a pet we ask that you come and meet the animals we have for adoption. The animals listed here are just a few of our available animals. When you find one that you are interested in you may fill out an adoption application. Upon approval, you can take your new friend home today!
The adoption fees are $100 for dogs, and $50 for cats. These prices are subject to change.
We require a $50 deposit on all un-altered animals and we will return your deposit to you once your animal has been altered. It is Iowa Law that all pets adopted from shelters are to be spayed/neutered.
All animals adopted from the Humane Society of North Central Iowa will receive a free health exam from a number of veterinarians in the area. The free health exam must be done within one week of adoption. In the case that your veterinarian feels that the pet you adopted is not in good health, you may return the animal for a full refund within the first days.
Please note, we do not adopt animals that are intended to be outside pets only. Our animals are to be adopted as household companions and kept as such, as stated in our adoption contract.
