My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

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

Kate was adopted from us in 2015 when she was just a few years old, but unfortunately her owners moved out of state and into a new living situation that prohibits pets. So Kate came back to Safe Haven as a senior cat. We treated her with a much needed "kittie dental" that resulted in all her teeth being pulled. However, she is totally recovered from that, and her oral health is much better now and she eats her senior kibble just fine! It was also discovered that Kate now has a heart murmur, so she is on daily oral medication to help her heart function properly. Luckily this medication is a common human medication (Atenolol) that is very inexpensive, so this shouldn't slow down her adoptability one bit!  

Since Kate is now a senior girl, she is looking for a quality senior cat home (ie quiet, peaceful, and plenty of relaxing views out windows) and it seems like Kate may be happiest if she was the only kitty in her new home. Since she is currently our oldest resident, she holds a special place in many hearts - so much so that one of our volunteers has sponsored her adoption fee! So all Kate needs now is for a potential adopter to open up their home and heart to let Kate in!

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.
