Give Second Chances

Since 1926, the Animal Rescue League of Iowa has helped more than 1 million pets in need, and at the end of 2023, we saved over 12,000 lives. Thanks to your support, we were able to be there for all those pets in need last year. They’re just some of the thousands of pets you help each year.
