Adopt a pet from our no kill animal shelter in Iowa, board your pet while you are away, and learn how you can donate your time or resources to help homeless cats and dogs in Northwest Iowa.

Buena Vista Cat & Dog Rescue League is located in rural Newell, Iowa but also serves nearby communities in Northwest Iowa, such as Storm Lake. BVCDRL is a state-licensed, 501c3 non-profit NO-KILL organization dedicated to saving the lives of unwanted cats and dogs. We routinely rescue animals who are about to be euthanized in kill shelters. These animals receive the care they need and are housed in an open, loving environment until they are adopted. In addition, we provide low cost, no cage boarding that is handicapped animal accessible to help when you cannot be there to take care of your pet.

BVCDRL does not receive any funds from the county or state, nor does it receive any type of grant funds. We survive solely on sponsorships and private donations. To see pictures and learn more about our shelter, our animal adoptions, boarding your animal with us, and ways you can help our shelter, please visit our main website. You will also find a map to our location.

Our animals are constantly changing. To see them all, please call the shelter and set up an appointment. Looking forward to hearing from you soon!

In the time it took you to get to this page, eleven cats and dogs were euthanized because there were no available homes for them. The birth rates in the United States for pets are 7:1 to humans. This means to keep up with the status quo, every person born in the US would need to adopt 7 pets to keep them from being euthanized.
