Special Thank You to our Help Us Help Them sponsors

Oct 06, 2021


Due to safety concerns, we felt the responsible choice was to yet again cancel our annual Help Us Help Them fundraiser. Although the shelter relies on the anticipated donations from this fundraiser to keep our most vital programs going, we could not in good conscience host a crowded event. 

Even during the toughest of times, homeless pets continue to arrive to our shelter needing help. Cedar Bend Humane Society is the only full-service, open-admission animal shelter in Black Hawk County, Iowa. For many in our community, we are their only hope.

With the help from the following area businesses and organizations, we can make sure every adoptable animal that comes to us receives medical attention, vaccinations, daily care, and the advocation they deserve until they are adopted into loving homes. Their sponsorship will help us reduce the homeless pet population and strays in our community by spaying/neutering and microchipping every animal that comes to us seeking refuge. 

Cedar Bend Humane Society is grateful for your support.
Thank you for helping us, help them.

Isle Casino Hotel Waterloo

"Just off Highway 218 and adjacent to the Lost Island Waterpark, this modern casino hotel is also 5.4 miles from Downtown Waterloo. Rooms have simple decor, plush beds, free Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs with cable channels, plus coffeemakers. Suites add whirlpool tubs. Amenities include an indoor pool and whirlpool tub, a fitness center and 3 restaurants, including a steakhouse and a buffet.

"In its glory days, downtown Waterloo was the central hub of the city where people flocked to restaurants, shops, and offices of all kinds. Over time, the area lost much of its business, charm, and liveliness. In 2001, Jim Walsh, an attorney, executive, politician, and developer established JSA Development to help bring some life back into downtown Waterloo. Walsh saw the potential of the area and has since worked with local building professionals and contractors to help restore not only the buildings but also the former glory for years to come."
