SHELTER UPDATE

Although the times may be uncertain, we are certain that there has been a lot of good happening at the Iowa County Humane Society. We have continued to be able to help a lot of animals find forever homes, place animals with foster families, and been able to continue our mission of helping the animals of our communities. None of this would be possible without our supporters.

We are currently working to develop reopening procedures based on the recommendations put out by the Iowa County Health Department.  At this time, we will continue to do business and adoptions by appointment. If you have questions regarding our current process, adoptions, or other business, please call 608-935-1381.

WE NEED YOUR HELP

 
There is no better time than now to become a foster! Everything you need will be provided by the Iowa County Humane Society.  With the recent updates of the COVID-19 pandemic, we feel there is an urgent need to be able to clear the shelter of animals. Our goal is to clear the shelter in the case of a state mandated lock down policy.

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!

COVID-19 Pet Preparedness 

While we prepare to care for our families and loved ones, remember our furry friends. 
Do you have a plan in place for your pets in an emergency if you are sick or require hospitalization? Who will care for them? Will they have enough food, medication, litter, or other necessary supplies?
 
Although there is no current evidence that suggests the coronavirus can be transmitted to or from companion animals, it’s always a good idea to follow basic hygiene practices around animals. This includes washing your hands thoroughly throughout the day and before and after direct contact with your pets, their food or their supplies.
