ARL of Iowa promotes animal welfare by offering life-saving services to individuals and their pets through adoption, education, behavior training, spay and neuter, and cruelty intervention programs, among others. ARL of Iowa also assists shelters that are dealing with overcapacity by finding new homes for their pets.
In 2020, ARL relocated six retired racehorses to escape the summer heat. Volunteers and ARL’s Second Chance team members worked together to help the Thoroughbreds settle in and adjust to their new homes. When an Animal Rescue League location announced the closure of its shelter in June, ARL made many trips to transfer over 100 cats and dogs. ARL’s medical team conducted full medical evaluations and administered vaccinations, deworming medicine, microchips, and other treatments to help the pets recover and become ready for adoption.
