Target Circle

We've partnered with Target Circle

We are honored and excited to announce that we have been chosen to participate in a special charitable giving campaign, sponsored and funded by Target.

Now through September 30, you have the chance to help direct a portion of Target’s donation to us! Every vote counts to help us receive a portion of the available Target funds as we continue our mission to serve people and pets from across the state of Iowa. We rely on donors like you to help continue our programs, which include pet adoption, humane education, pet behavior training, spay/neuter, animal cruelty intervention and much more.

*This voting period, the ARL is part of the “statewide” nonprofit list (vs. the DSM metro list), which means if you’re voting on the app, you’ll have to change your “store” to a city outside the metro area in order to vote for the ARL (just type in the name of any larger city in Iowa). It’s super easy, and you can change your store right back when you’re done!
