What We Do
The Midlands Humane Society is the first humane society established in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Now in our sixth year, we often house and care for over 150 animals each day. Many more are taken care of in private homes, veterinary offices and pet stores. We take in strays, owner-surrendered animals and pets involved in welfare/neglect cases.
Together with Council Bluffs Animal Control, Pottawattamie County Animal Control and other partners, we work to alleviate animal suffering, re-homing animals in need through well-matched adoptions and educating the public about the proper care of companion animals. We hold a variety of events and fundraising promotions throughout the year to engage the community and allow for the human/animal connection. A robust volunteer program allows hands-on work with animals at the shelter, basic cleaning and organization tasks, and specific skill-based opportunities are needed each day.
