Did You Know...

• We’re always seeking good homes for barn cats!

• 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.

Check JCHS Out on Zazzle.

• We’re still working on our newest page: Feral Cats and Trap/Neuter/Return.

Need Low-Cost Spay/Neuter?

Grafix: Spay/neuter your pets

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

Spay/Neuter is the single most important thing you can do to make a difference.

*These animals are listed as a Owner/Rescuer Re-home Service. They are not being fostered by JCHS. To meet them contact us by e-mail.

We are an all-volunteer group that does not operate a sheltering facility.

Our foster homes are currently full.

We cannot take in more animals.


Next Johnson County Humane Society (JCHS) Meeting

February 11 (M)—7pm, Coralville Public Library Room B, 1401 5th St, Coralville, IA. (Please do not park in the two rows closest to the library.) A member will be there a bit early to meet and help orient people new to the group.

This is our regularly-scheduled monthly meeting. Please join us! Bring a friend.
