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!

We have about 75 cats and kittens at ICHS and more are coming in every day. The number of dogs is also on the rise. Donations are slow and resources are critically tight. So, please consider DONATING or ADOPTING Today!

**2017 Holiday Match Challenge**

Thanks to a very generous donor, every dollar that you donate to the ICHS Match Challenge throughout the month of December will be matched so that your dollar will go twice as far! This means that if you donate $50, we will receive $100 to go to the care of the animals of Iowa County!

To make a donation online click on the link below. With the rush of animals and consequent expenses of the past few months, funds are very tight for us right now.  Your tax deductible donation will help rescue, treat, feed, and shelter the area’s surrendered, stray, and abandoned animals until they are adopted. Please help us keep up with our current expenses and start 2018 on a good note!

Be sure to write “Match Challenge” in the memo so that it will count towards the match! Donations can be dropped off in person as well during our open hours.  Thank you!
