Our Programs & Services

As the first humane society in Council Bluffs we strive to provide Council Bluffs and the surrounding community with a comprehensive animal welfare center offering a safe and comfortable environment for the animals. This will include excellent standards of care, proactive adoption services that match pets with adopters, plus a diverse array of volunteer opportunities, community outreach and public education programs, both at our animal shelter and off-site.
