No Kill Shelter

Does anyone know of a directory of no kill shelters? One of my friends has a stray cat outside her apartment and we're looking for a humane place that can pick him up. She lives in Council Bluffs, Iowa.


Antifreeze is not an option.

First to answer your question: List of Iowa traditional shelters and no-kill shelters

The problem with no-kill shelters is that they end up refusing a ton of animals. They have to accept only highly-adoptable animals, because if they accept a dog or cat that no one wants, they are stuck with it for life. Space and money is usually limited.

Traditional shelters that are humane and well-funded will accept all animals, give good treatment, and give them a decent chance for adoption, but if its not an adorable young cat or dog, it can be hard.

Given a choice between the two, I usually make my occasional charitable contributions of supplies or cash to the Animal Rescue League of Iowa, which unfortunately does have to use euthanasia.

Good luck, if you can convince a no-kill shelter to accept the cat that would be the best. Otherwise, you may have to keep it or try a newspaper ad or something.

I have some ice melt and washer fluid. I might also still have some leftover oil from my old weed eater.

We might be past what we can get in just with a funnel. We may have to actually pump it in with some sort of pressurized seal.

How much will a cat stretch, anyway?

Thank you. There is one in Omaha willing to take him if she can catch him and bring him out. They won't pick him up.

"My" cat, Sebastian, was taken (by me, perhaps my subconscious is a little guilty and I'm expressing this by writing in passive tense) to a low kill shelter back in January. The last straw was when he peed on a picture of my parents right in front of me.

Good luck, little buddy. Or RIP, you worthless excuse of a pet.

The only downside to my new, phat apartment is no dogs. I considered getting a cat for about 2 seconds before remembering this maxim.

I can't paint all cats with the same brush. The other family cat, Mrs. Price, died the week before last of cancer/old age/?. One time I came home inebriated, fell asleep on the couch with my contacts in, and she slept in my arms the entire night.
