MASON CITY – The Humane Society of North Iowa (HSNI) and the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) declare October to be Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog Month.

Each year millions of dogs find their way into shelters across the country. Many were previously someone else’s pet that the owner could no longer care for. Some just lost their way and ended up in a shelter. Either way, the majority of shelter dogs are socialized, healthy and eager to have to a family to call their own again.

“At the Humane Society of North Iowa, we have a huge variety of dogs in our shelter all hoping to find new homes,” explains HSNI Executive Director Sybil Soukup. “We have dogs of every breed, color, size and age. When you adopt a shelter dog, you are really saving the life of two animals: the dog you’ve just adopted and the dog that can now take its place in our shelter.”

The Humane Society of North Iowa charges an adoption fee for its animals that covers the following veterinarian services: spay/neuter surgery, rabies vaccination, flea and wormer treatment, feline leukemia test in cats, and heartworm test for dogs.

The Humane Society of North Iowa is a non-profit organization that serves a 9 county area in North Iowa and operates a no-kill rescue animal shelter in Mason City. In the past 25 years, HSNI has found loving homes for over 8000 abandoned, displaced, and neglected animals.
