We ask that interested parties please fill out a pre-adoption questionnaire prior to lining up an appointment to see the animal at the animal's home. Please fill out the questionnaire only if you are seriously considering adopting an animal. Please select the proper link below based on if you are looking for a dog or a cat. Once you have submitted the questionnaire, an adoption coordinator will contact you usually within 24 hours.
P.E.T.S. (Protecting Even the Strays) was created with the vision of humanely assisting the numerous stray and feral cats in Panora, Iowa.
P.E.T.S. has now grown to become a safe haven for many abused, orphaned, unwanted, and abandoned animals.
P.E.T.S., located in Panora, Iowa, is a non-profit rescue organization consisting of volunteers only. We provide humane shelter and services for animals in need in our area. While we hold a shelter license with the State of Iowa, we are not a traditional shelter. All of our dogs and a majority of our cats are in foster homes. Only cats reside at our shelter location.
Through contributions from individuals and organizations, P.E.T.S. maintains its dedication to animals. Without the generous support of the community and beyond, P.E.T.S. would not be able to assist the 200+ animals that come into our care ever year.
The following are programs that we have implemented:
Panora TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) Program. The TNR Program is a plan in which stray and feral cats already living outdoors in Panora are humanely trapped, then evaluated, vaccinated, and sterilized. Kittens and tame cats become available for adoption. Healthy adult cats too wild to be adopted are returned to their familiar habitat (colony) under the lifelong care of volunteers.
Opurration Fix It! A low-cost spay/neuter clinic. Available for owners with multiple barn, alley, stray, or feral cats, and entire litters of kittens.
Dog & Cat Microchip Clinic.
Abuse/Cruelty Hotline— 641.757-1621. 24-hour contact to report abuse or cruelty to an animal. P.E.T.S. encourages you to contact your local law enforcement FIRST to report abuse/cruelty.
Lost/Found & Stray Animal Assistance.
Please visit us at our shelter for cats on Saturday afternoons from noon to 4pm. Our shelter is located at:
114 W Main Street - Panora, Iowa
