Iowa County Humane Society

Serving the animals and citizens of Iowa County and its surrounding communities

Welcome to the
Iowa County Humane Society!

The Iowa County Humane Society (ICHS) is a non-profit, no kill shelter. We run mostly on donations. Please consider a donation to help us continue to help the animals. 
Thank you! 

We have around 90 cats and kittens at ICHS and more seem to keep coming in.  Also, the number of dogs is on the rise. Donations are slow and resources are critically tight. So, please consider DONATING or ADOPTING today!

Also, check out our Wish List on to send us something special.  If you are a regular Amazon shopper, do not forget to include us as your as your charity of choice!

This week our top needs are Tall Kitchen Trash Bags, Dawn Dish Soap, Bleach,and Liquid Laundry Soap (HE type)

Focus on a Brighter Future

The Iowa County Humane Society is announcing a change in leadership. Our three managers have left our employment and we thank them for their years of service. The Board of Directors has opened the new position of Executive Director. We are seeking someone with animal shelter experience and expertise to work with the Board to lead the shelter into the future. In the meantime, the Board has appointed an Interim Director to serve until a permanent Executive Director can be hired.

The ICHS shelter is still open for business – we have paid staff and dedicated volunteers who are cleaning and caring for the animals. All of the animals are receiving necessary veterinary care and we are still taking in new animals, returning animals to their owner and adopting animals into new homes. We have also hired a national animal shelter consultant to assist us and give us best practice recommendations for going forward. During this transition of leadership, we ask for patience as we restructure for a bright future. 

We thank our many supporters and volunteers! If you can contribute financially, this would be a great time to give to the shelter as we pivot to a new and bright future. We thank you for your support and urge you to share your ideas for improvements that you would like to see us make. Please join us on this journey! We need YOU!

ICHS just received a very generous $2000 donation from a donor who wishes to remain anonymous. Their only stipulation is that they asked that we post a Matching Challenge urging other animal lovers in the area to match their donation or make any donation to ICHS to help the animals in our care.

Thank you so much to our anonymous donor for their generosity and to everyone who donates to our organization. We and our furry friends really appreciate it!


Roof BillBoard.jpeg

Urgent Need! The wet spring slowed down farmers, produced flooding, and caused damage to property across the county….including the roof of the Humane Society’s animal shelter. We’ve asked for your help in creating a new outdoor space for our animals, but are now facing a more urgent need. Because of the damage and the age of our roof, it can no longer be patched and must be replaced as soon as possible. We have received bids and are urgently seeking $59,500 for a new animal shelter roof and supporting structures. With your generosity, we can keep our animals well and dry! Can we count on your support? You can donate by clicking here!
