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 70 cats and kittens at ICHS and many more will be rolling in soon during "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!
