Our Pet List

Donate a Bed We use Patented Kuranda Dog Beds because they are durable, chew proof and easy to clean. If you would like to donate a bed to us, click here.


Effective January 1st, 2011, there are a few changes in the works here at Muscatine Humane Society. We have new hours and some new procedures, but mostly we STILL have a great selection of adoptable pets. All of our animals are up to date on vet work All adoptable animals have been spayed or neutered and examined by our Veterinarian. Please consider giving a shelter pet a "forever" home.

Please, stop in and see our selection.

Who We Are

The home of the Muscatine Humane Society is the Nancy E. Kent Animal Shelter located at 920 So. Houser St, Muscatine, Iowa. The entire property, shelter building, and it's contents were graciously donated by Nancy E. Kent. It opened in July of 1996. The shelter capacity is 85-100 animals. There are 45 large chain link kennels and 50 state-of-the-art cat cages. We run entirely on donations and hope to provide that all important "second chance" for adoptable pets. Also located on our property is the Canine Activity Center of Muscatine, known as CACM. This building houses many different events and classes throughout the year. Built partially as a "project" by our dedicated volunteers and local business people, it is one of the finest examples of a training building in the Midwest.

Our Mission

The mission of the Muscatine Humane Society is to educate the public of the importance and dire necessity to spay and neuter their animals to prevent the needless suffering that follows pet overpopulation. Concurrently the Society provides a safe haven for lost or abandoned animals until their owners or new homes can be obtained.
