Our Pet List

Our Featured Pet...

Oreo is a sweet 9-month-old black and white female pooch that has Heeler, Lab, and American Pitbull Terrier in her family’s tree. She appears to know sit but is very shy and needs TLC and socialization. She had to be placed inside our test crate but then settled down right away once inside. We’d like to see her in an adult home. Her former owner was moving and couldn’t take her along. They said she is housebroken, but spent time both inside and out.


There are many volunteer opportunities at the Dubuque Regional Humane Society. Assistance is always needed for pet socialization, grooming, special events/fundraisers, gift shop staffing, mailers, nursing home visits, and more. Contact Ann at 563-583-3314, or send her an email at ann@dbqhumane.org, if you would like to help out!

Who We Are

Adopting a friend

The Dubuque Regional Humane Society has the largest selection of adoptable pets in the tri-state area. Our variable pricing for dogs and cats includes initial vaccinations, rabies, microchip, and the basic cost of spay/neuter at one of our participating veterinarians. It is the law in Iowa that all animals adopted from the DRHS must be spayed or neutered. Our hours are M/W/F 9-5, T/Th 9-7, Sat. 9-4, Sun. Noon to 4. Our Kennedy Mall Animal Adoption Center keeps Mall hours.
