We’re Nearly Done Redesigning Our Website

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


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.

Check JCHS Out on Zazzle.

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.


Immediate Housing Needs Alert for Cats

There are several cats in Hills who must be re-homed because of a change in their caregiver’s health. They range in age from 3-15 years (most are between 10-15). See Herschel and Alex above.

Next Johnson County Humane Society (JCHS) Meeting

May 14 (M)—7pm, (6 to 6:30 to eat) Adelitas, 555 Suite E, Hwy 965, North Liberty, 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.

Grafix: Change for Change New Pi and Iowa Shares

New Pioneer Co-op has choosen Iowa Shares for their CHANGE-for-CHANGE Round-up program in April.

JCHS is an affiliate member of Iowa Shares, so the Change-for-Change Round-up doesn’t specifically help us, but Iowa Shares does so much good...

When you shop at New Pi in Iowa City, Coralville and Cedar Rapids this month, make sure to ask about rounding up as you check out (if you’re not asked by the cashier first). Tell your friends - Like - Share!
