I live outside of Harrison County. Can I still bring a found animal to Harrison County Humane Society?
Harrison County Humane Society serves the residents of Harrison County and requires proof of residence to leave an animal with us. If you live outside of Harrison County, it is best to take the found animal to your local shelter where its owners will be more likely to find it.

I want to surrender my pet to Harrison County Humane Society. How do I do that?
Harrison County Humane Society accepts animals from residents of Harrison County. In order to surrender your pet, you must bring them to our building and provide proof of residence. By completing our surrender paperwork, you will allow us to quickly process your pet and evaluate them for adoption.  Please bring all documentation of veterinary care that your animal has received, including vaccination records.  A $25 surrender fee for altered pets will help pay for vet bills and vaccinations for your pet; a $50 surrender fee for unaltered pets will help pay for vet bills, vaccinations, and alteration.

I’ve lost my pet and would like Harrison County Humane Society to contact me if they receive it.
Visit our Lost & Found page for information.  Lost and Found pets are typically posted on the Harrison County Humane Society of Iowa Facebook page.  To post your lost pet, please post a photo, location last seen, identifying characteristics (collar color, limp, eye color), contact information, and your name.  We will take it from there and post on the main page.  You may also call 712-644-3003 to see if your pet has been turned in to the shelter.

I haven’t had my pet spayed or neutered. What can you tell me about these surgeries?

Spaying and neutering are essential in keeping your pet happy, healthy, and safe.  There are so many stray, unwanted, and adoptable pets out there available at many shelters and rescues across the country — there is no need for your dog or cat to have a litter.  Spaying and neutering is also necessary to help prevent various cancers and other health problems in your pet.  For a long, healthy life, please spay or neuter your pet!

These surgeries are performed by veterinarians in the county and at other facilities.  The costs vary per location.  Many local veterinarians will spay or neuter at approximately 4 – 6 months of age.  The Nebraska Humane Society Spay and Neuter Clinic (low-cost) will spay and neuter at 8 weeks (or 2+ lbs).  You can rely on the fact that your pet will stay overnight at the hospital to ensure that the surgery went well.  All veterinarians in our area have performed many, many spays and neuters and are among the best.  Please be secure in the fact that by choosing an area veterinarian, you are choosing someone with a lot of successful experience in performing spay and neuter surgeries.

Where can I obtain a low cost spay/neuter for my pet?

You can contact any local veterinarian to ask for current prices.  The Nebraska Humane Society Low-Cost Spay and Neuter Clinic provides services at a low cost, although the waiting list can be fairly long.  You may find them at http://www.nehumanesociety.org/site/PageServer?pagename=sos_homepage.

How do microchips work and where can I get one for my pet?

A microchip is a small device, about the size of a grain of rice, that is implanted via sanitary pre-loaded needle under the skin of your pet at the nape of the neck.  The microchip can be scanned by any veterinarian or shelter if your animal makes its way to a facility.  At that point, the person who has scanned your pet will call the provider of your microchip to have you contacted to let you know your pet has been located.

Most veterinarians microchip dogs and cats.  The Harrison County Humane Society of Iowa can microchip and register your pet for the nominal fee of $20.  Please contact HCHS for more information.

How many animals does the Harrison County Humane Society typically take in each year?

HCHS brings in approximately 250 animals or more each year.  Some of those animals are strays, others are owner surrenders.  We also do TNR (Trap, Neuter, and Release) programs where we bring in feral cats for alteration, shots, and return to the community to continue their job, but as healthy, non-reproducing cats.

Who funds the Harrison County Humane Society?

HCHS is funded by individual and corporate donations, as well as through our yearly fundraisers.  If you would like to donate to HCHS, you may mail your donation to:  HCHS, P.O. Box 174, Logan, IA  51546 or use the PayPal button on this website.
