Help support adoption specials at the Dubuque Regional Humane Society (DRHS). The DRHS is a non-profit, open admission, NO-KILL shelter that serves companion animals and communities throughout Dubuque, Jo Daviess, and Grant counties. In 2022, the DRHS helped over 3,000 animals find loving homes. Operating as an open admission facility we sometimes experience times throughout the year when our campus is at or near capacity. In order to make space for additional lost, unwanted, abandoned, neglected, or surrendered animals in need while honoring our commitment to finding new families and homes for 100% of the safe, healthy, and treatable animals in our care we reduce or waive adoption fees to facilitate faster pathways home for the animals and create more opportunities for families to adopt.

How can you help? The DRHS is looking for donations to sponsor the adoption specials that we run as needed to save more lives in 2023. Our Great Give Day goal is to raise $15,000! Each gift makes a difference in finding these animals a forever home. Donate today and help us reach our goal of $15,000. Thank you for your generosity!

"I absolutely love and adore the Dubuque Regional Humane Society. I recently adopted a blind Boston Terrier. The DRHS was so great in working with me. The staff was friendly and accommodating." - Danielle T.

"We adopted Cleo back in October 2018. She has continued to fit into out family wonderfully! We would like to again express our sincere thanks for everything you continue to do for all the animals at DRHS. You will forever be in our hearts." - Steve and Deb L.

"Animals give such genuine, selfless love that is so rare in our world. The Dubuque Regional Humane Society recognizes and acknowledges that animals hold that magic. They are a resource that goes the extra mile to ensure that all animals keep their magic by providing safety, advocacy, and a chance at a future.  The DRHS does more than make a difference in the lives of animals, they are making a difference in our community, our families, and our lives.” -Rachel C.
