Simba was an emaciated stray when he was found in 2002. He had multiple marks of abuse which included chain marks and cigarette burns. Simba was afraid of humans and had absolutely no reason to love them – but he did.
In fact, he became Midlands Humane Society’s (MHS) first four-legged ambassador, attending countless special events as we raised funds to build our facility and begin operations as the first Humane Society in Council Bluffs. A few of Simba's favorite activities included delivering “WAG-a-Grams” for Valentine’s Day and visiting schools and assisted living facilities. Simba was evidence that homeless pets – even those subjected to horrible abuse – are capable of providing unconditional love and their lives DO matter.
Sadly, in the fall of 2012, Simba passed away after a battle with cancer. When we opened on January 2, 2015, he didn't get a chance to wag his way through the doors of the new facility – the very place he spent most of his life promoting.
However, his legacy lives on in Simba’s Circle of Second Chances, a program designed to provide crucial funding to care for the thousands of pets who are counting on us.
For as little as $10 a month (or $120 a year) you can make a difference in this lives of these otherwise helpless animals!
Every pet deserves a second chance at a forever home. Please click here to become a member of Simba’s Circle.
