Who We Are
We are a non-profit animal welfare organization with a sheltering facility. The Cedar Valley Humane Society is proud to have served Linn County, Iowa, for more than 100 years.
The Cedar Valley Humane Society is dedicated to building healthy relationships between people and animals, and eliminating cruelty, abuse and overpopulation of animals through education, adoption services and inspiring compassion for all living things.
Animals we serve:
We take in lost, abandoned, and owner-surrendered dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, gerbils, ferrets, and mice. At this time, we are not able to care for horses, reptiles, barnyard animals or other wild creatures.
Areas we serve:
We place animals in new homes throughout the Eastern Iowa area. Our primary service area is unincorporated Linn County, and all incorporated municipalities within Linn County with the exception of Cedar Rapids and Marion.
Adopting a friend
To adopt an animal from the Cedar Valley Humane Society, you must be at least 18 years old, provide a current photo ID, and have a verifiable address. If you rent, bring a copy of your lease agreement and/or your property manager's telephone number so that we can verify the type of pet you are adopting is allowed.
You will also need to complete an adoption application. Applications may be picked up by visiting the Cedar Valley Humane Society or downloading an application from our website and e-mailing the completed application to firstname.lastname@example.org.
