We are currently open by appointment only due to COVID-19 precautions. We are limiting the number of visitors at any given time so that social distancing can be practiced. We are still handling adoptions, stray intake, and owner surrenders as normal, but you must call ahead for an appointment. Please call the shelter number to make an appointment: (319) 975-8283
We still need your help caring for our animals. If you have signed up on the volunteer schedule already, please complete your volunteering as you have signed up for it, and continue to schedule yourself for volunteering as usual. If you have not signed up on the volunteer schedule and intend to help during open hours with dog walking, cat socializing & brushing, etc, please call the shelter to schedule volunteer times with the shelter manager, Amy. Please call the shelter number to make an appointment: (319) 975-8283. All non-scheduled and non-active volunteers are asked not to visit the shelter.
