Become a Sustaining Member

Our Sustaining Members keep us going! It costs roughly $15 to care for one pet per day. Would you consider becoming a PALS sustaining member and sponsor the life of a shelter animal, the truly helpless? Your donation 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, vet care and medication, and treats/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 vet care 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 during our open hours.

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 it does not disturb their stomachs. Also, we buy our food in bulk, so you will get a much bigger bang for your buck with a non-food donation. Thank you!!
