My story

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

August 2022 Update: Lucy was adopted in 2019 and has recently been returned because she has nipped at kids in her home and more seriously bit her caretaker while her family was on vacation. Since being back at the shelter, we have learned that Lucy can be protective of her food. She has logged many many miles of walking and hiking with her previous owners - even though her family loved her dearly they decided returning her to Safe Haven was best for her safety and others. With Lucy's history, a quiet home with no young children or teenagers is what we think may be best for Lucy. She can take a bit to warm up to new faces, but is a loving girl once she is comfortable. She loves a good belly rub and is always ready for her next walk! If you're interested in meeting Lucy, please fill out an adoption application and contact us to set up a meeting time!

She was brought to us from Ft. Smith, Arkansas (Hope Humane Society) because they have about 400 adoptable dogs available and are looking for homes for  wonderful dogs by reaching out to other rescues. Safe Haven along with another group from Western Iowa met the transport to welcome several very adoptable dogs to Iowa as the van advanced to the rescue group in Minnesota where twenty beautiful dogs would find homes.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

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.

More about this rescue

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.
