The Humane Society of Northeast Iowa (HSNEI) is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life in Northeast Iowa by rescuing, caring for, and finding adoptive homes for unwanted pets; reducing population of companion animals through spay/neuters; fostering respect for life; encouraging volunteerism; and educating the community about responsible pet guardianship. HSNEI aims to provide humane rescue, animal protection, fostering and adoption for animals. As a no-kill organization, we do not euthanize any animal that is adoptable. “Adoptable” is defined as a healthy or reasonably treatable animal with no behavioral problems that create a danger to humans or animals. However, this does not mean that we will keep every animal despite their temperament and health. If the animal is dangerous or extremely ill/injured, the humane choice may be to euthanize the animal, otherwise we are willing to pursue all reasonable efforts for the well-being of the animal. Euthanization solely for the sake of space is not an acceptable policy. Animals who are suffering mentally, emotionally or physically may be euthanized for their peace. Animals who pose a danger to themselves, other animals, or the public may be euthanized for safety reasons. Each animal accepted by HSNEI will be evaluated on an ongoing basis taking into account behavior and medical conditions.
All animals entering HSNEI’s system must first be admitted to the Adoption Center by approval of the Director.
All adoptions must follow HSNEI’s adoption process.
OWNER SURRENDER POLICIES
Volunteers provide support to the Board and HSNEI with the following guidelines:
INJURIES/BITES TO HUMANS AND ANIMALS
Injuries and/or bites may occur while the pet is in the care of HSNEI. ALL cases must be reported immediately to the Director. HSNEI is not liable for injuries from animals. Please use common sense in care of the animals. Advise the Director immediately in the event of aggressive behavior by an animal. Do not allow young children to be around pets unsupervised. If damage or injury should occur due to neglect or violation of HSNEI Foster Policies, HSNEI is not responsible for damages.
