Mason City Stray Animal Shelter

2750 Birch Drive
Mason City, IA 50401

Our Mission

The Mason City Stray Animal Shelter is co-located with and managed by the Humane Society of North Iowa.  Together, both organizations provide top quality care for hundreds of animals each year!  Our shelters are always in needs of volunteers to help us socialize and exercise our animals; please visit us anytime!

The Mason City Stray Animal Shelter takes in animals that are found as stray in the city limits of Mason City, IA. Animals are held for 7 days waiting for an owner to come claim them.  If they are not claimed within 7 days, they are made available for adoption!  

Many of the animals in the Mason City Stray Animal Shelter were once someone's pet and they are looking to be someone else's pet again!  Come and meet all our animals and give a shelter pet a "new leash" on life!
