Serving the animals and citizens of Iowa County and its surrounding communities
And how about a feline fairy tale come true!! Sylvie was an amazing cat that came to ICHS with a super loving attitude but a serious problem. While out fending for himself, someone decided to use him for target practice and shot him, damaging his front leg beyond repair. After expensive surgery to remove the leg, Sylvie was adopted out and is continuing to amaze his new family with his special character. All because ICHS believes in giving damaged animals the treatment and care they need to recover and go on to live healthy, happy lives.
Then there's the tale of Jingles, the big black and white lovebug who languished hopefully in the shelter kennel for almost 3 years—a victim of breed discrimination until he was found by the perfect adopters! Home at last because we look past outward appearances to the true beauty inside!
And let's not forget about the tale of Bessie, the sweet grey cat who was overlooked by everyone for several years. This amazing cat was so wonderful that she even went on visits with the pet therapy team but never seemed to catch anyone's eye. Finally the perfect family found her and recognized just how special she is! Happy at last because we make sure that there is space for all as long as needed.
Last but certainly not least, dogs like Annie, who was here almost a year before finally finding her perfect forever home, keep coming through our doors and we are hard put to find the resources we need to ensure that she has a fair chance for a loving home.
