Pets in Need

The Cedar Bend Humane Society (CBHS) is an open admission shelter. Animals come to us in all kinds of conditions. Many arrive at our door dirty, matted, and neglected. Some are injured, ill, and require immediate medical care. Here are some of their stories:

    *UPDATE ON LEXI*
    Posted May 1, 2019

    Hi there, my name is Lexi.  Thank you to the generous donors who helped pay for my FHO surgery after my unfortunate accident. I know I don’t look too happy in this photo but I want to let you know that I am recovering nicely at the shelter.  I am comfortable, and being well taken care of by the CBHS staff.

    I still have one wish, to find a loving family to call my very own. Please consider opening your home and heart to me.  Love - Lexi

    *Lexi is now ready to be adopted...Please consider giving this wonderful dog a home!!!  CBHS will continue with Lexi’s medical care until she is healed from her surgery but it would be ideal if she could find a family to call her own! 

    For more information, or to apply to adopt Lexi please call 319-232-6887 or click here to fill out an adoption application.

    *UPDATE ON LEXI*
    Posted April 20, 2019

    Lexi’s surgery has been paid for! We are beyond words and so grateful to the anonymous donor who covered the cost of Lexi’s surgery and then some!

    Your kindness, thoughtfulness, friendship, and generous heart is beyond measure and so greatly appreciated! All of Lexi’s surgery and recovery costs will now be covered! You have brought sunshine to this sweet girl’s life!

    Thank you from Lexi and all of us who know and love her!

    Lexi’s surgery was a success and she is resting comfortably. Thank you to Companion Animal Clinic for performing her surgery and taking such good care of her!

    The CBHS is also accepting applications for the adoption of Lexi.

    We are looking for a family with the time and dedication that can help with her recovery and give her a wonderful loving home!

    Her new family must agree to take her under a foster to adopt agreement to allow the CBHS to finish her medical treatment.

    Lexi Pre Surgery
    *LEXI'S STORY* 
    Posted April 19, 2019

    Lexi is a one-year-old female Pit Bull Terrier mix. She arrived at the shelter September 6, 2018, as a stray. She was finally adopted on March 19th, 2019. We were so happy to see her find an adoptive family!

    Maybe you remember her? She had quite the following on Snapchat and the CBHS Facebook page. She is one of the shelter’s favorite pups, so sweet and affectionate!

    She now needs your help! Tragically, she suffered injuries consistent with being hit by a car. She was taken to a local veterinarian. The veterinarian reached out to Cedar Bend Humane Society and reported she had extensive road rash and a dislocated hip. Her owners surrendered Lexi back to the shelter, unable to incur the cost of her medical care.

    Lexi's X-Ray
    Due to her injuries, Lexi needs immediate surgery- an FHO – Femoral Head Osteotomy surgery - to repair her dislocated hip. This is heartbreaking news and an unexpected financial challenge for the Cedar Bend Humane Society! Companion Animal Clinic has agreed to perform the surgery at a discount for the shelter. However, medical costs will still range between $1,000 - $1,500 to cover the cost of surgery, X-rays, pain medication, antibiotics, and recovery care.  

    Lexi has had such a difficult start, at just one-year-old she has spent the majority of her life at the shelter. Her time in a home was short lived and now she is injured and back at CBHS. Please help us show her the love and support she deserves!

    The veterinarian team at Companion Animal Hospital in Cedar Falls will be performing her surgery today, April 19th. She is expected to make a full recovery with appropriate medical care, time and a lot of TLC! Watch for updates on our Facebook page.

    If you would like to make a donation to help cover the cost of her surgery and her continued recovery care, please donate online (please indicate in the Honor box that your funds support Lexi's surgery) or send your check to
