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 100% on donations. Please consider a donation to help us continue to help animals. 

Thank you! 

We have about 20 cats and kittens at ICHS and many more will be rolling in soon with "kitten season". The number of dogs is also on the rise. Donations are slow and resources are critically tight. So, please consider DONATING or ADOPTING today!

New Flooring Fundraiser

As many of you know, ever since we purchased our current facility in 2012, we’ve been chipping away at necessary building updates and improvements for safety, long term cost savings, and in general, to be able to best utilize the space for our needs. Back in 2015 we were able to put in new flooring in the front reception area and the back offices, but put a hold on updating the flooring in other areas, such as the main cat area (“Whisker City”), the other cat rooms, meet and greet rooms, utility rooms, and back hallways. Unfortunately, the time has now come to tackle the worn out flooring in those areas as well due to safety concerns and in order to help us maintain our high standard of sanitation for the animals.


***Flooring Fundraiser Update 3/22***

We are currently at about 70% of our goal, thank you SO MUCH to everyone who has contributed so far! We have about $$7k left to raise in order to cover the expense of this project completely.

If you haven't already, please consider helping us fund this much needed building improvement with a tax deductible donation to ICHS- every little bit helps!
