Our Mission

We are the only shelter in Cedar County, Iowa. We take in homeless dogs and cats and help them to find carefully screened, lifelong, and nurturing homes. FOA serves Cedar County, Iowa.

Adoption Policy

Once you find the animal(s) for you, please go to our website, and complete the application for the animal(s). Please list the name on the application.

All animals from FOA are age appropriate vaccinated and altered before adoption. If in a rare case, the animal due to health or age can’t be altered before leaving the facility, arrangements will be made with you to bring the animal back to the facility to receive the care needed. This is done so we can keep our costs down and ensure the surgery was completed.

FOA dogs also come with a harness, leash, collar, dose of Frontline and Heartguard on them, transition food, toy(s). While supplies last a Bark bed or blanket, calming packets, skin and coat conditioner, pet wipes, dental spray gel, probiotic spray deodorizer, fecal bag holder with an extra roll of bags, and a bottle of shampoo.

FOA cats come with a goodie bag of some can food, toys, and some shampoo.

If your pet has learned commands, we will also help you to learn the hand and voice signals with them.
