News

Our foster homes are currently full and for now, we cannot take in more animals.

 

Cats in Immediate Need

A founding member of the Johnson County Humane Society is quite ill and has been in and out of the hospital this year. We are seeking homes for her two cats because she is no longer able to care for them.

Saki*

Since they are not friends (Saki lives upstairs, Nicki lives on the first floor), the cats do not need to be placed together. A stipend for each will be provided. Both cats will probably do best as only cats in a quiet home without children.

 

Upcoming Events

May 8  (M)—7pm (6 to 6:30 to eat) Village Inn, 9 Sturgis Corner, Iowa City, 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.

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.

 

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