Siouxland Humane Society

Since 1889, the mission of the Siouxland Humane Society has been to provide services and programs that promote the humane treatment of animals in the Siouxland area. It is a unique mission since our organization is the only private, non-profit agency in Siouxland dedicated to animal welfare.

Volunteer Opportunities:

  • In-Shelter Animal Care such as walking, bathing, grooming and socialization of animals.
  • Fundraising, e.g. Gourmet Apple Project, Paws ‘n' Claus Holiday Photo Project, Holiday Dog Biscuits, Dinner/Benefit Auction, Animal Walk, etc.
  • Humane Educators, a speakers' bureau for Humane Education and Public Relations, e.g. humane education for school children, speaking at service clubs and other organizations. (Sorry, Adults only.)
  • Animal Advocates, a trained group of volunteers who write and/or phone (using a designated calling tree) various local & state officials on selected animal welfare issues. (Must have Email Address.)
  • Pet-Facilitated Therapy/Pet-Loss Support Program that entails on-site & off-site interactions with aged and disabled members of our community, as well as help to coordinate our pet-loss support program. (Sorry, Adults only.)
  • Foster Care Program that involves serving as a foster "parent" for animals awaiting adoption. Primarily are litters of kittens or puppies with special needs. (Sorry, Adults only.)
  • Out-Reach Programs, e.g. off-site adoption efforts to place animals at local venues such as Sam's Club & Petco; also, help with public promotions and education, Rivercade and other parades.
