About Us


What's new with us?

New to Petfinder as of October 2012. We are so excited to be partnering with Petfinder so that our animals can get to a furrever home quickly.  We are a non-profit, no kill,  humane society located in Tama, Iowa, and we are striving to make the shelter a great place to live & to visit. With the generous donations of money and time we were able to obtain shiny new epoxy flooring & a larger area for dog enclosures in September 2012. October 2012 projects included new drywall, new paint, electrical work, and a new door. November-December 2012 new roof over our outdoor kennels. January 2013 large glass enclosures for dogs ordered, installed late February 2013. March 2013 ordered outdoor dog runs. May 2013 working on finishing new sign outdoors and preparing for outdoor dog runs. October 2013 we have finished the outdoor runs & are working towards fundraising for a new cat room. November 2013 held a haunted chili supper fundraiser for our new cat room. Making way for a second dryer to help us stay caught up with the laundry.
