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.

Eowyn*

Grafic: Perhaps we can't make a difference for all the cats in the world. But we can make all the difference in the world for some of them.

*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.

We no longer take in animals.


Next Johnson County Humane Society (JCHS) Meeting

Our meetings historically have been held on the second Monday evening of each month. They are on hold temporarily due to Covid-19.

(2nd M)——7pm, Urban Acres Real Estate, 250 Holiday Rd, Coralville, IA. 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.
