With Stops at:
SAINT Rescue & Adoption Center in Cedar Rapids is a nonprofit 501c3 animal welfare organization that is dedicated to improving the lives of our homeless cats by placing them in loving, forever homes.
Animal Resource Foundation is an animal welfare non-profit that focuses on fixing and feeding animals in need. They provide financial assistance to pet owners and caretakers through their SNIP (Spay/Neuter Incentive Plan) program to encourage spay and neuter. ARF also offers donated pet food to more than 70 rescue groups and shelters in Iowa and four surrounding states through their Rescue Bank pet food pantry program.
Last Hope Animal Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose primary mission is to save as many abused, abandoned, and hard to place animals they can and place them into their loving and forever homes where they will be cherished. Last Hope Animal Rescue has rescued, rehabilitated, and rehomed over 2,000 animals since 2004.
Founded in March of 2011, Dogs Forever, a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization is run entirely by volunteers. Passionate about dogs, they work tirelessly to take great care of them, regardless of circumstances or time invested to make sure their next home is their forever home.
The mission of Cedar Rapids Animal Care and Control is to serve and protect with compassion, the animals and citizens of our community through education and enforcement, and to facilitate successful pet adoptions while respecting and striving to improve the quality of life for both pets and people.
Iowa Equine Rescue and Awareness League is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization working to ensure that equines in our state live in a safe, healthy, nurturing environment. Partnering with law enforcement authorities, IERAL assumes the care, rehabilitation and selective adoption of animals confiscated in cases of abuse, abandonment or neglect.
Witty Kitties, Inc. Witty Kitties, Inc. provides rescue services, shelter, and medical care for special needs cats and a variety of reptiles in Johnson County, Iowa and surrounding areas. Our special needs cats have feline leukemia virus (FeLV), feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV), or some other physical impairment. We also care for a variety of exotics.
Proceeds from the day’s events will help fund programs provided by Iowa Humane Alliance (IHA) and their Regional Spay/Neuter Clinic located in Cedar Rapids. IHA’s on-going mission is to reduce companion animal overpopulation and animal suffering in Iowa by providing services such as high-quality, low-cost spay/neuter procedures.
After opening in 2013, the IHA Regional Spay/Neuter Clinic has spayed or neutered over 28,000 owned, shelter and rescue animals as well as free-roaming stray cats, preventing tens of thousands of unwanted animals entering our local shelters and rescues.
The “Break the Cycle” event will also help raise awareness for Spay/Neuter/Adopt and generate support for all the hard-working local animal welfare organizations in the area. It’s good for riders, good for animals, good for our whole community!
So gear up for the critters, as we all pitch in to “Break the Cycle!”
