Did You Know...

People often confuse us with the Iowa City Animal Care & Adoption Center, (the city's municipal animal shelter). Although we both offer animals for adoption, and we work collaboratively, JCHS does not operate a sheltering facility.

If you have lost or found an animal, contact the Iowa City Animal Care & Adoption Center or Cedar Valley Humane Society. Most communities in the Iowa City area are served by one of these animal shelters.

 

You may qualify for spay/neuter financial assistance from us if you reside in Johnson County.
