Take a behind the scenes look at the Animal Rescue League of Iowa with a visit to our ARL Main location for a group tour led by one of our humane educators. Learn more about the mission of the ARL, the animals we work with, and services we provide to animals and the community.
NOTE: Shelter tours are educational in nature and participants will not have direct contact with our animals due to safety and health concerns.
Advanced reservations are required for all tours. Our tours often fill up several weeks in advance, so contact us as early as possible to schedule your group's tour.
Length of tour: 45 minutes
Group size (including all children and adults): 5-15 people
Due to the busy environment of the shelter and limited space in some of the areas we visit during our behind-the-scenes tour, we are only able to accommodate up to 15 participants per tour.
Minimum age: Participants must be at least 6 years old
Please note: For those with peanut allergies, peanut butter and other peanut products are present throughout the premises.
