Who We Serve

The Iowa Humane Alliance Regional Spay/Neuter Clinic is Iowa’s first non-profit high-quality, high-volume, low-cost spay/neuter clinic operating on a daily basis. We perform on average 8,000-10,000 surgeries a year. We have, when the need was there, altered pot belly pigs, pet rats and guinea pigs. We have served animals from 31 different Iowa counties, and 29 animal welfare organizations. We work with shelters, rescues and local volunteers to service cats, dogs, and rabbits to help with animal over-population.

Nearly a quarter of the animals we have worked with have been free roaming cats (community cats), both tame and feral. We have a special interest in reducing the population growth of this demographic and specialize in working with people who are caring for feral cat colonies and large barn cat populations. For more information on our community cat programs, please see our Community Cat page.

Who can use our clinic?

There are no geographical restrictions to utilizing our services and the clinic is open to anyone interested in helping reduce animal over-population.

We have an outreach program designed to reach out to those populations most in need of our services and offer special pricing for targeted populations when funding is available. We also work with several other humane organizations that offer voucher programs to reduce the price for those who are not able to afford our regular affordable pricing.

For communities within a 100 mile radius of IHA, we offer transport options to shuttle several animals to and from our clinic. For more information on those transports and where they are, please contact us.

We offer special pricing for volume clients such as animal shelters, rescue organizations, and spay/neuter subsidy programs. For more information on our alliance programs for organizations, please email programs@iowahumanealliance.org
