Welcome to the Humane Society of North Iowa!

Humane Society of North Iowa offers micro-chipping service

The Humane Society of North Iowa offers pet micro-chipping for only $30 per pet!

We proudly use the “Pet Link” microchip, a safe, easy and reliable chip that gives your pet the BEST chance to be returned to you should they ever get loose, stray or become missing.

Micro-chipping provides the peace of mind that you’ve given your pet the permanent, lifetime ID he needs for the best chance to come home!

The process is quick, simple and relatively painless. To have your pet(s) micro-chipped, you must make an appointment! Please call the shelter to make your appointment today! 641-423-6241

For more information about the micro-chipping process, please visit the Pet Link website:


Professional photographers capture the shelter animal’s BEST sides!

The Humane Society of North Iowa is fortunate to have some REALLY talented professional photographers that come take photos of the shelter animals for us to use on our website and other sites we use to help them be adopted.  These professional photos are beautiful, amazing, and are a wonderful way to showcase our loving shelter animals!  Below is a sampling of photos from two photographers that visit us frequently:
