Our meetings are scheduled quarterly (January, April, July, and the October Annual Meeting) on Fridays from 1-3pm or Saturdays from 11-3pm. Meetings are held at a central location in the State, usually in Des Moines at the Animal Rescue League.

Organizational Members

We are people from licensed animal shelters, humane societies, animal welfare groups, and animal advocacy organizations. Some of us are career animal people, a few of us do something else for a living but consider animal concerns a passionate avocation. The important thing is that we have joined hands across the state to make Iowa a better place for animals.
