Our Mission 

The Cedar Bend Humane Society commits itself to providing humane care for all animals under its protection, educating the community about responsible pet ownership, and advancing the cause of kindness to all animals.

We’re so glad you’re here!

CBHS Co-Directors Kristy Gardner and Karla BeckmanWe’ve been in existence since 1910.

Our location, 1166 West Airline Highway, Waterloo, opened in 1968. A new adoption center was built in 2009 with community support and donations.

We are a non-profit organization that exists because of the support and friendship of people who donate money, time, and other gifts. 

Every dollar and donation received benefits the animals by helping with medical needs, spay and neuter costs, and providing care and shelter for the homeless, neglected, and unwanted animals of the Cedar Valley. 

The Cedar Bend Humane Society staff and animals are forever grateful for your friendship and support!
