Interested in adopting from Cedar Bend Humane Society?

Interested adopters are encouraged to browse adoptable pets online and submit an adoption application prior to visiting.

Please allow up to 24 hours for your application to be reviewed. To check on the status of your application, please contact our adoption team at 319-232-6887 or adoptioncounselor@yahoo.com. 


Please follow these safety guidelines:

  • Do not make an adoption appointment or pickup if you are sick.

  • Those unvaccinated are encouraged to wear a mask. 

No-Contact Cat Adoptions are available! The no-contact adoption fee is $25 and you are able to safely complete the adoption process over electronic communication and pick your new feline companion up in our entryway. 

To adopt a pet from the Cedar Bend Humane Society you must:

  • Have a valid identification.

  • Have the stability and the means, (financial and emotional) to care for the pet for the rest of its life. This could be as long as twenty years.

  • Be 21 (and have proof). If you are not 21, the head of your household (parent, guardian) must be present to sign the adoption agreement, or be reachable by phone to consent to the adoption. Some exceptions may apply. 

  • If you live with others, they must be with you, or reachable by phone, so we can confirm the pet is welcome in your home.

Be sure to like Cedar Bend Humane Society’s Facebook page to watch for updates and new adoptable animals! Questions can be directed to our adoption team at adoptioncounselor@yahoo.com.

CBHS is determined to place animals into loving homes while continuing their emphasis on safety. Please consider opening your heart and home to a shelter pet in need. 

We look forward to introducing you to your next best friend soon!
