Animal Rescue League of Iowa

The mission of the Animal Rescue League of Iowa (ARL) is to promote animal welfare, the human animal bond, and prevent the overpopulation of pets. Founded in 1926, the ARL is Iowa’s largest animal shelter, caring for many thousands of pets each year. The ARL serves people and pets from across the state of Iowa through its programs, which include pet adoption, humane education, pet behavior training, spay/neuter, animal cruelty intervention and much more. In 2005, we took in more than 14,000 animals. The shelter continues to spay and neuter all dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets and pigs that are adopted from our shelter – some 5,000 animals annually.
