Empty the Shelter

To go home for the holidays....isn't that what we all want. Please help us give our animals 
Home for the Holidays! We are offering lower adoption fees so we can 
clear our shelter  this holiday season.
So if you have room in your heart and home, please come visit us today.

Lend A Paw

The Dubuque Regional Humane Society is asking for your help to vaccinate the over 2,500 animals we shelter and care for each year.

The cost to vaccinate one animal is $15.50, so with a little help from the community, we can raise the funds to purchase a year supply of the essential vaccinations these animals need.

Baby it's Cold Outside

Let's take a Walk - Massaging petroleum jelly or other paw protectants into paw pads before going outside can help protect from salt and chemical agents. Booties provide even more coverage and can also prevent sand and salt from getting lodged between bare toes and causing irritation. Use pet-friendly ice melts whenever possible.
