Become a Sustaining Member

Our Sustaining Members keep us going! The average donation of just $7 per month allows us to keep our cats and dogs happy and healthy until they find their forever home.

Your monthly support goes straight to the animals -- not to administration. We use adoption and surrender fees to cover administrative costs, so your donation will go to food, heating/cooling, medication, and toys for the animals.

It costs about $5,000 per month to keep us going! Things like heating in the winter, cooling in the summer, and animal food and medicine all year round do not come cheap. And unlike most animal shelters in Iowa, we receive zero public funding. Sustaining Members help us to provide the best possible care, 365 days per year. 

Monthly pledges include free PALS Park membership for the duration of your pledge!

We use a secure online payment processor to keep your information protected, and we do not sell your information.

DONATE ITEMS

In-kind donations are greatly appreciated. Anything can be dropped off at the shelter. Contact us if you'd like a large quantity of items to be picked up.

The biggest wishes are toys and treats for both the cats and the dogs. We do not buy them as part of the shopping for the shelter. The only way they get them is through donations.

We are grateful for donations of pet food, but we kindly ask for non-food donations only. This is because we keep our pets on the same food so as not to disturb their stomachs. Also, we buy our buy in bulk, so you will get a much bigger bang for your buck with a non-food donation. Thank you!
