Animal Care Medical Program



To ensure they start their new life happy and healthy, all animals adopted from the Iowa City Animal Care and Adoption Center receive required vaccinations, de-worming, flea and tick treatment, ear cleaning, a nail trim, and a bath.

Some animals need more extensive treatment involving a larger sum of money.

This is Bobber.  He was hit by a car in June, 2012 and found near Lake McBride. Bobber is now a happy, healthy 3-legged dog living in a loving forever home!



Thanks to our medical fund, animals that might otherwise be euthanized in another facility are able to receive needed treatment and are adopted into loving forever homes. 

We help many animals every year by providing funds for diagnostic testing, X rays, amputations, treatments, medications, and surgeries.
