Who We Are

The Cedar Bend Humane Society is the only full-service animal shelter in Black Hawk County. We are open to the public from 10am to 5pm, Tuesday-Sunday, but we do not process adoptions after 4:30pm. Our Animal Control Department is available 8AM-5PM, Monday-Friday. The CBHS is a non-profit organization that could not exist without the support of people who donate money, time, and other gifts. To all those wonderful people, THANK YOU! As always, the CBHS is currently housing many cats and dogs looking for forever homes of their own. If you are a loving, committed home looking for an indoor pet, please stop in to visit with the shelter's animals and fill out a pre-adoption application. We adopt out our animals to be indoor companions for life. On behalf of all homeless animals, PLEASE DON'T LITTER, FIX YOUR CRITTER!

Adopting A Friend

First, all members of the household (human and canine) should meet and spend time with the animal. Next, potential adopters must complete our pre-adoption application. If the application is approved, adopters then sign a legally-binding adoption contract and pay an adoption fee. Then adopters take their new family member home! We especially encourage potential adopters to consider black dogs and cats, mixed-breed dogs, and older animals as these are often the last pets adopted.
