The Humane Society of North Iowa remains closed to the public, but is OPEN for adoptions! (by appointment only)

To adopt a pet, please submit an application by following this link.

Once your application is approved, we will call and schedule a time for you to come to the shelter to meet your new best friend!  

We appreciate your patience during this time. There has been an overwhelming interest in pet adoption during this pandemic, and it is taking staff a bit longer to properly review applications and conduct interviews. THANK YOU!! Take care!

Improving Iowa’s Animal Cruelty Laws

dsmAs welfare advocates, improving Iowa’s animal cruelty laws is a huge priority for us. (Iowa is ranked 49th in the nation for comprehensive animal welfare laws)  

There have been a number of criminal cases of animal cruelty/torture in our community in recent years.  (Here’s a recap: Cerro Gordo County Cruelty Cases)

The Animal Rescue League’s Humane Action Network seeks to work with Iowa Legislators to strengthen and improve the animal cruelty laws in our state.

Citizen’s interested in being involved in the process of communicating our goals with our Legislators are encouraged to sign up for “Action Alerts” from the Humane Action Network.  Participants will receive notice when action is needed to voice support for animal cruelty related legislation in our legislature.  Sign up here.
