Issue | February 2018


Honored to serve as the President and CEO, Laura joined the team at DRHS in February 2018. Laura's progressive career in nonprofit leadership over the last decade, supported by a BS in Business from Colorado State, a BFA from Clarke University and the pursuit of an MPA from the University of Colorado Denver, demonstrates a dedication to achieving mission excellence, faithful advocacy for vulnerable populations (human and animal alike), and an ardent belief in creating greater good through collective service. 

Laura feels blessed to be part of an organization and community that prioritizes pathways to effectuate positive changes in animal welfare and education. As a believer that every pet should have a home Laura shares her home with a rather opinionated and highly camera shy dog named Beauregard.

Dubuque helps animals across the nation.

With the help of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and Humane Societies (ASPCA), in 2017, the Dubuque Regional Humane Society successfully took in and found homes for just under 800 animals from various overcrowded shelters across the nation.

The DRHS will continue those efforts throughout 2018.  As long as we have ample space and supplies to support our community animals, we will receive thirty to forty animals per month via the ASPCA.

The DRHS also has direct partnerships with rescue groups and other shelters who ask that we accept fated animals from their communities.  We welcome these pets to our facility to find their future right here in Dubuque.

Don't lick that!

Like coolant, antifreeze is a lethal poison for dogs and cats. Be sure to thoroughly clean up any spills from your vehicle, and consider using products that contain propylene glycol rather than ethylene glycol.

Thank you to Josie Kallback!  Josie spent hours making jeweled bracelets and then sold them to family and friends to raise $174.  Miss Kallback then donated the money to the animals at the DRHS!
