Iowa city's cats need your help.
Iowa is under many feet of water and the Humane Society of the United States together with local shelters has been working to rescue people and their pets. See a slide show of some of the rescued pets and their people.
But there is so much more to be done. The animals need your help. Here is a list of donations as of today. But this list will keep changing. Check Iowa City Animal Care and Adoption Center for updated lists of needed items.
Donations List: The most urgent need is for large outdoor kennels for dogs, the chain link kind. Please drop kennels off between 12-3 at Barn #1. These don’t have to be new kennels, but in good working condition. Other needs are: medium, large and extra-large dog collars and harnesses; 6 ft. long heavy (1”) nylon dog leashes; cat havens; small (ceramic is best) food and water dishes for inside cat cages; copy paper; photo paper for Kodak Easy-Share camera; hand sanitizer; liquid hand soap; kitchen sponges; towels and sheets to use as bedding/cat cage covers; monetary donations to purchase medications, medical expenses, and care for animals with special needs.
Donations can be dropped off at the Fairgrounds between 10:00AM and 5:30 PM daily. Donations to the Friends of the Animal Center Foundation for both regular and emergency animal care can be made online or mail to Friends of the Animal Center Foundation at PO Box 1345, Iowa City, IA 52244-1345.
