What We Do

SOLAS, like the word solace, provides comfort and care for unwanted dogs, cats, and other animals living in the Council Bluffs/Omaha area.

SOLAS was started in 1993 by Mary and Mike Jones and a small, hardworking group of volunteers. The purpose of the group is to assist in the care and placement of the animals from local shelters. We are now a large network of volunteer foster homes who will work diligently for the health, happiness, socialization, and general well-being for all animals.

Every animal that is adopted through SOLAS has been vaccinated, micro-chipped, and spay or neutered. We firmly believe it is part of responsible pet ownership to have your pet spayed or neutered. While still in our care, pets are altered so that no more irresponsible (or purposeful) breeding is done by that animal.

Interesting Info
  • We support over 400 animals a year.
  • Our goal is to find as many animals their furrever homes as possible!
