NEW! Yoga with Cats on January 21 - Two Sessions!


Iowa County Humane Society is partnering with Impact Fitness & Martial Arts Academy  for two classes Saturday, January 21 at 1:30 and 3:00 p.m. at the animal shelter located at 305 County Road YZ in Dodgeville.

Certified Yoga instructor at Impact, Bethany Helmich, approached the animal shelter with the idea and she is donating all the proceeds to ICHS. Helmich has a passion for teaching yoga – and a passion for finding shelter pets their forever home. “Yoga brings so many benefits, including a desire to contribute to a greater good,” she says. “When you adopt, you’re both giving back to your community and giving new life to an animal in need.”

Each class will last one hour, with plenty of opportunity for cat interaction during the class. Space is limited, and tickets will cost $20. Participants who wish to adopt one of the cats will get a $10 discount with a paid yoga session.

Register soon! These sessions will fill up quickly. Email to register. All experience levels are welcome. Bring a yoga mat, water bottle, and lots of snuggles!

Sponsor a Kennel

Each year hundreds of animals come to Iowa County Humane Society after being found as strays, surrendered, or abandoned.  They are usually frightened, anxious and in need of a safe place.  Our kennel sponsorship program is a unique gift that will help our rescue animals have a safe place while they are staying at the Iowa County Humane Society. Every animal that resides in that kennel or room will benefit from your support.  Click here to learn more...

There is no better time than now to become a foster! Everything you need will be provided by the Iowa County Humane Society.  

We are urgently looking for foster families, which can be both short or long term. If you can help us by being a foster family for a dog or cat an application can be found under our Volunteer tab.
As always, we sincerely appreciate everyone's support as we navigate these unprecedented times. If you are unable to adopt or foster at this time but would still like to provide support, please consider a donation. Donations can be now at our donate button.
We are also currently still open for adoptions by appointment only. To make an adoption appointment please call 608-935-1381, and fill out an application under our Adoption tab.
Thank you from all of us, and the animals of Iowa County!
