About Us


The Mason City Stray Animal Shelter is co-located with and managed by the Humane Society of North Iowa.  Together, both organizations provide top quality care for hundreds of animals each year!  Our shelters are always in needs of volunteers to help us socialize and exercise our animals; please visit us anytime!

Adopting A Friend

When you adopt an animal from us, you are really saving two lives!  Not only the animal you’ve just adopted, but also the life of a second animal that can come into our shelter because you’ve just created kennel space for them! 

When considering adding a new pet to your family remember, “Don’t shop….ADOPT!”

Mason City Stray Animal Shelter Adoption Fees

The Mason City Stray Animal Shelter adopts hundreds of animals each year to loving, qualified homes.  To adopt an animal from us, you are asked to submit an Adoption Application. 
Adoption fee covers the following veterinarian services: spay/neuter surgery, rabies vaccination, flea and wormer treatment, feline leukemia test in cats, heartworm test for dogs.
Adoption Fees:


Kittens (under 1 year):                    $115.00
Adult Cats:                                       $105.00
Senior Cats (over 10 years):           $  90.00


Puppies (under 6 months):                $175.00
Adult & Puppies (over 6 months):     $150.00
Senior Dogs (over 7 years):               $110.00

We don’t operate on a “first come, first serve” basis.  Every new animal will spend several days in our shelter so that families and individuals can have the chance to submit an application if interested.  We then review all applications and select the home that will best fit an animal’s needs.  This is sometimes a difficult process as we often will have multiple applications for just one animal!

Thank you for choosing to rescue an animal in need and thank you for choosing the Mason City Stray Animal Shelter!


Who We Are

The Mason City Stray Animal Shelter takes in animals that are found as stray in the city limits of Mason City, IA. Animals are held for 7 days waiting for an owner to come claim them.  If they are not claimed within 7 days, they are made available for adoption!  

Many of the animals in the Mason City Stray Animal Shelter were once someone's pet and they are looking to be someone else's pet again!  Come and meet all our animals and give a shelter pet a "new leash" on life!
