Spring is Here
and Love is in the Air….
Every spring thousands of kittens are born. Every summer our local shelters and rescues are literally flooded with new kittens needing homes.
STOP! IN THE NAME OF LOVE!
and stop the flood of pet overpopulation before it happens!
And to get this campaign off to a great start, one of our generous donors has presented this matching grant challenge!
Please Donate today —We need to reach our goal of $3000 by April 22!
Many kittens are born into a world without a home and will never be lucky enough to end up at a shelter. The lucky ones receive amazing care through our shelter system but these new kittens reduce resources for adult cats, such as; shelter viewing cages, foster care, medical treatment and a forever home. This can mean the difference between life and death.
Your donation will go into a fund that helps people needing assistance with spay and neuter for cats under six months of age or for anyone finding surprise litters.
The Kitten Fund will be available all year long through the Iowa Humane Alliance Regional Spay/Neuter Clinic while funds last.
Let’s give them the best of our love. Together we can turn the kitten season trend around!
Save Lives. Invest in Spay/Neuter.
Investing in spay/neuter saves lives by preventing unwanted litters of puppies and kittens. It is these same puppies and kittens that often end up in shelters and as strays or ferals in our urban and rural communities. Please consider donating to support our efforts to end companion animal suffering and euthanasia as a form of population control. Iowa Humane Alliance is a 501(c) (3) charity and your donations are tax deductible to the full extent allowable by law. We appreciate your support!
Donations of any amount help! You may choose to make a one-time donation, join our Sustaining Members Circle by setting up a recurring donation, or make a donation in honor/memory of a loved one or pet.
