What We Do

Midlands Humane Society exists to improve the lives of animals who arrive at our doors by providing a kind touch, medical care, a warm bed and nourishing food. On any given day we often house and care for over 150 animals. Many more are taken care of in private homes, veterinary offices, Iowa Western Veterinary School, and adoption centers like Petco and PetSmart. We take in strays, owner-surrendered animals and pets involved in welfare/neglect cases. When able, we also work with a large network of rescue organizations to bring animals to us from over-crowded or under-funded shelters.

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 organizational tasks, and specific skills-based opportunities for special events, adoption counseling and office work.

Interesting Info

Midlands Humane Society is the first humane society in the Council Bluffs/Pottawattamie County area yet we facilitate adoptions across many neighboring states.
We work with over 25 animal rescue organizations and utilize 20 foster homes to help care for animals in need.
