We are happy to announce the Dubuque Regional Humane Society (DRHS) as the first cause we support. DRHS holds a special place in our hearts. Three of our four staff members are from Dubuque, and we have all loved visiting DRHS, volunteering with them, and playing with the animals they house.
The Humane Society was founded in 1901 and has been working tirelessly ever since. The DRHS is committed to placing healthy, treatable and safe animals into the Dubuque community. They have an open admission philosophy, which means they accept every animal that is surrendered to them regardless of health, age, breed, or temperament. This means they provide shelter and care to thousands of animals that would otherwise have no safe refuge.
Every animal in their care receives a medical and behavioral evaluation. Many animals can be adopted immediately. Others may need medical treatment or behavior modification, which the DHRS provides either in-house or through their foster care system. This gives every animal a fair chance at adoption.
Mission: DRHS protects and promotes the well-being of all animals by fostering respect for their inherent dignity.
Vision: DRHS envisions a community where every pet has a permanent and loving home, companion animals are spayed or neutered and all animals are treated with respect and compassion.
The Society is run by a small, dedicated staff of 25 supported by dozens and dozens of volunteers. The DRHS, and the people that run it, has a great heart. We love what they do, and are proud to support their fantastic efforts.
