Cedar Bend Humane Society Mission P.E.T.S. Place. Educate. Teach. Shelter. CBHS is passionate to: Place animals in lifelong, loving homes. Educate on the issues of humane care. Teach responsible pet ownership. Shelter the stray, neglected, and unwanted.

Cedar Bend Humane Society Vision Cedar Bend Humane Society (CBHS) exists to maintain and improve the health and well-being of surrendered, lost, abandoned, neglected, and abused companion animals in Black Hawk County and surrounding areas. We provide shelter, medical care, compassion, and the love homeless animals need. The Shelter is contracted to take in stray pets from Waterloo, Cedar Falls, Waverly, Black Hawk County, and area towns. We also accept owner surrendered pets on an appointment basis. Once in the care of CBHS, animals placed on the adoption floor have no time limit, and every effort is given to find the animals loving homes. CBHS is the only open admission shelter in Black Hawk County. We accept any animal brought to the shelter for any reason, no matter its age, health, or behavior. Without Cedar Bend

Humane Society, there would be nowhere for these animals to go.

In Community with‌ Cedar Bend Humane Society is grateful for the partnerships of the many organizations that assist in helping hundreds of homeless animals each year. Cedar Bend Humane Society strives to develop relationships with community organizations such as media, local television stations, newspapers, radio stations, schools, veterinarians, retailers, animal rescue groups, humane societies, businesses, universities, and non-profit agencies. We cannot do this alone. We continue to need strong community support.

PLACE Animals in Lifelong, Loving Homes Our Mission P.E.T.S. Place. Educate. Teach. Shelter. CBHS is passionate to: Place animals in lifelong, loving homes. Educate on the issues of humane care. Teach responsible pet ownership. Shelter the stray, neglected, and unwanted.

ADOPTION READY Cedar Bend Humane Society’s number one mission is to place animals in lifelong homes. CBHS knows there is no greater reward than to give a homeless animal a second chance at life. In 2018, CBHS successfully placed 2,642 pets and partnered with rescues to rehome 41 additional pets. Although this is something to celebrate, it comes with a cost. Each pet placed up for adoption receives vaccinations, a full medical examination, treatment for parasites, testing for heartworm or feline leukemia virus (FLK), receives a microchip, and is spayed or neutered (if age and health allow). To ensure animals are good candidates for adoption, our medical team also performs an extensive temperament evaluation on each pet. Cedar Bend Humane Society spent $272,856 getting animals ready for adoption in 2018. Our goal is to place as many animals as possible up for adoption every year.

We need your support to accomplish this!

CEDAR BEND HUMANE SOCIETY ADOPTION CENTER The adoption center houses up to 36 dogs and 70 cats. Once a pet enters the adoption center, CBHS is committed to finding it a home. The pet has no time limit on its stay. A groom room is available for use by the public and their pets for a small fee. CBHS has a spacious lobby, two quiet “meet and greet” rooms, outside exercise pens, and a dog-walking trail. These areas give prospective adopters an excellent opportunity to spend time with a variety of shelter pets prior to adoption. CBHS staff and volunteers work to ensure the animals residing in the adoption center stay healthy and happy. The “animal enrichment” program provides each pet with toys, food puzzles, treats, outside exercise time, and social interaction with other pets and volunteers. The goal of the adoption staff is to help each family select and adopt an appropriate pet to fit their lifestyle. This is done through an application and interview process. 8


FREE ROAMING CAT POPULATION Of all the cats entering the Cedar Bend Humane Society, 78% are stray cats. For years, the animal control system had been relying on catching and euthanizing outdoor cats to control the free-roaming cat population. Although many of these cats are not suited to be indoor pets, CBHS feels their lives are of value. New programs were offered to save lives!

CBHS BARN CAT PROGRAM The Barn-Cat program saves lives by offering homes to healthy cats not suitable as house pets. Stray cats are spayed and neutered prior to being offered for adoption through our Barn-Cat program, allowing stray cats to find homes and jobs (as mousers/rodent control) within the agricultural community.

Hundreds of feline lives have been spared, and thousands of unwanted litters have been prevented. Through the TNR and Barn-Cat programs, 293 feral / free roaming cats were saved. Unfortunately, CBHS found it necessary to euthanize 64 feral cats due to lack of resources and placement options. Cedar Bend Humane Society’s TNR and Barn-Cat programs are currently unfunded. Without these programs, the stray pet population will continue to rise. This will result in more homeless cats roaming the streets sick, injured, and abandoned. We need financial support to be able to continue to provide these services. Please support the Ally Cat Giving Alliance.

CBHS TRAP-NEUTER-RETURN (TNR) PROGRAM Through CBHS Trap-Neuter-Return program free roaming community cats are humanely trapped, altered, vaccinated, ear-tipped (the universal sign that a cat has been neutered), and then returned to it’s outdoor home. This has helped to control the feral cats in the community and cut back on unwanted litters.

Help us to save lives and prevent cat overpopulation through the Alley Cat Giving Alliance.

The Cedar Bend Humane Society partnered with the ASPCAÂŽ (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to AnimalsÂŽ) to help place nine Samoyed dogs from a puppy mill rescue in Worth County, Iowa. The dogs came from an inhumane commercial breeding facility and were living in overcrowded conditions. Upon arrival, the CBHS evaluated each dog to determine his/her needs. Every dog was spayed or neutered, updated on vaccinations, tested for parasites and treated for any medical issues. All nine dogs were adopted into loving homes!

FOSTER CARE Many animals entering the facility are sick, injured, or too young to survive on their own. The CBHS foster program relies on families that are willing to provide in-home care and love to young animals, thus addressing their medical needs and providing the care that allows them a second chance at life. Without the foster program, euthanasia may be the only option.

PARTNERSHIPS In 2018, 552 pets were involved in pet rescue exchanges from outside rescue organizations. Through these partnerships, Cedar Bend Humane Society is able to make a substantial difference in the lives of many animals within our community. Cedar Bend Humane Society partners with Black Hawk Rehabilitation Project by temporarily holding injured wild animals until they can be passed along to the proper foster/rehab homes. CBHS partners with the city run Animal Control of Waterloo and Cedar Falls that rescues stray and homeless animals off the streets of our community. CBHS provides housing and care to the animals brought to the shelter by Animal Control until their owners come forward or until they are ready for adoption.

10

CBHS partners with numerous humane societies and animal rescues to help save more lives and promote animal welfare on both a local and national level.


EDUCATE on the issues of humane care

EDUCATIONAL OUTREACH Cedar Bend Humane Society offers an extensive volunteer program. Shelter pets need a break from their daily routine, time away from the shelter environment, and community interaction. CBHS pets visit nursing homes, retirement communities, schools, businesses, and attend community events. This is beneficial to both the pets and the people. CBHS animals enjoy the chance to interact outside of the shelter. Pet interactions have proven health benefits for humans such as a decrease in heart rate, lower blood pressure, and reduced stress. Pets benefit from interaction, making them more adoptive. Visiting classrooms also gives CBHS staff the opportunity to educate on the issues of humane care. 11


TEACH responsible pet ownership / Tours and Group Visits CBHS does many tours and presentations during the year for children and adult groups. The goal is to educate groups on animal care and to to instill better knowledge and compassion toward animals in general.

These groups range from mentally and physically handicapped individuals to school children from a variety of organizations. Many of these people would not have the opportunity or benefit from animals if it were not for the Cedar Bend Humane Society.

BARKING BOOK BUDDIES CBHS offers a fun program where children ages 6-12 have the opportunity to grab a book and read out loud to a shelter dog. This has shown to benefit both the children, who are sharpening their reading skills, and the shelter dogs needing socialization while awaiting their new homes. Barking Book Buddies was initiated by Maya Gabriele and Avanti Gulwadi as part of a school project for the ALPHA program. Over 190 students participated in 2018. 12


Community Services

SPAY AND NEUTER CBHS has an in-house spay and neuter program dedicated to help reduce the pet overpopulation crisis within our community. In FY2018, 4,025 animals entered the shelter. The majority of these animals were unaltered. Spaying and neutering are the most important things we can do to help control pet overpopulation. Cedar Bend Humane Society altered 1,986 pets over the last year. By reducing the number of potentially homeless, unwanted, stray, and abandoned pets, existing pets are more likely to receive the care and nurturing they need. Unaltered animals arrive daily. Continued community support is vital to address this issue and continue this program. Please support the Kiss and Don’t Tell Giving Guild where your financial gift will support the spay and neuter of stray animals.

VACCINATION CLINICS CBHS offers community-wide, low-cost, low-income vaccination / microchip clinics on a quarterly basis. No appointment is necessary. This helps to save lives and provides the communtiy with healthy and happy pets! CAT vaccinations and services offered include: Distemper and Rabies Package FELOCELL 4 Distemper RABIES 1 YEAR MICROCHIP DOG vaccinations and services offered include: Distemper, Bordetella, and Rabies Package VANGUARD Plus 5 - Distemper VANGUARD B (IN) - Bordetella RABIES 1 YEAR MICROCHIP

We need financial support to continue to provide these services.

SHELTER the Stray, Neglected, and Unwanted

CBHS campus encompasses a broad range of buildings and services. It provides a place for pets to be adopted, volunteers to gather, and provides opportunities for educational programs. In addition, there are walking trails, outside exercise pens, and an intake center to house and offer sanctuary for the lost and abandoned, unwanted, and owner-surrendered pets. The Memorial Pet Cemetery allows for end of life services. Garages hold supplies and food. The Mutt Hutt boarding facility provides financial support for CBHS homeless animals through boarding fees. The CBHS campus is equipped to house and handle approximately 250 animals at any given time. We strive to accommodate the needs of each animal on a physical and emotional level. CBHS works annually on the upkeep and maintenance of our campus, housing facilities, fences, and trails necessary to keep our animals happy and healthy. 14

Building and ground expenses (for four facilities: adoption center, animal intake, volunteer outreach center, and Mutt Hutt) include general maintenance, utilities, telephone, insurance, depreciation, and cemetery costs. Your contribution will directly impact the housing and living conditions for the adoptive, stray, and homeless animals. Additionally, your gift will assure structurally sound buildings, play pens, animal runs, and fencing. Without continued support for housing facilities to shelter homeless animals and proper campus maintenance for their safety, euthanasia may be more of a reality to many more animals.


INTAKE BUILDING The intake building gets intense use on a daily LOOKING TO THE FUTURE basis and has served the community for over 50 years. CBHS receives approximately 4,025 animals annually, 88% of which are stray, all entering through the intake center. This building is used for quarantine, surgeries, medical treatment, stray holding and pets waiting to enter the adoption center. Several activities often happen simultaneously in the lobby which include: owners reclaiming lost pets, burials, sick and stray animals coming in, and owners giving up their pet(s). Currently, there is one entrance and one lobby to accommodate all of these services. The intake building includes a medical lab and a surgery room.There are approximately 80-90 kennels to acccommodate stray and unwanted pets that arrive daily.

On the horizon is the need for a new stray intake center to handle the increase of animals, expanded programs, and to limit the potential of viruses spreading through close proximity. Kennel space and quarantine areas are limited in the intake building. CBHS hopes to renovate this building to allow for a variety of isolation areas, to accommodate individual services, owner surrenders, sick and injured animals, strays, DOA’s (dead on arrival), and sleep requests. In addition, Cedar Bend Humane Society would like to add a medical suite to increase the number of spay and neuters and other surgeries for injured animals as well as provide a place to offer low-cost, low-income spay and neuter and vaccination clinics.

Support is needed to continue to provide housing facilities to shelter thousands of homeless animals every year. Your financial gift could help make this happen!

Stray Animal Support and so much more!

We receive many types of animals: cats, dogs, pigs, ferrets, parakeets, gerbils, mice, rabbits, rats, guinea pigs, reptiles, and a variety of wildlife. The reasons they arrive vary. They may be stray, abandoned, lost, sick, injured, seized, or not wanted by their families. Animals are examined by a medical technician or veterinarian. Every animal’s health and temperment are evaluated, and vaccinations are given. Stray animals are held between three and seven days depending on the contract requirements of the city or county in which the animal was found. If an owner does not claim the stray animal, ownership reverts to CBHS at the end of the holding period.

16

Dr. Kent Melick, DVM, a veterinarian contracted by CBHS, performs in-house spay and neuter surgeries and other various life-saving medical procedures. Dr. Endres, DVM, a volunteer veterinarian, provides rabies vaccinations and assists the medical staff with examinations and treatment of sick shelter animals. The cost involved in the care of incoming animals includes: vaccinations, sometimes life-saving surgeries, medicine, flea and tick prevention, spay and neuter surgeries, grooming, food, and shelter. Support is needed to continue to provide these necessary and vital services to the animals!

MEDICAL CARE Animals arrive daily! Many are sick or injured and require attention, treatment, and medicine. Medical needs consist of heartworm treatments, mange treatments, tumor removal, exploratory surgeries, leg amputations, femoral head osteotomy, incision repairs, eye surgeries, and treatment for a variety of viruses. Hundreds of animals continue to need the medical care and support the Cedar Bend Humane Society offers. CBHS needs continued annual financial contributions to be able to continue to help and save the lives of the sick and injured animals that arrive at our door every year.


SURRENDERED PETS

LOST AND FOUND ANIMALS Lost and found efforts allowed CBHS to reunite 371 lost pets with their owners, microchip 2,694 pets, and license 248 animals. This is a direct result of services CBHS provides. The CBHS “lost and found� website page provides a place to post photos and information of lost or found pets. CBHS offers microchip clinics to assure more pets are returned to their owners.

CBHS understands the difficulties life can bring. People may face changes in their living arrangements, financial challenges, and medical concerns. They may no longer be able to care for their pet(s). CBHS will accept owner surrender pets on an appointment basis, which allows the staff to be prepared and have space to accommodate the pet. CBHS provides care, shelter, and homes through adoption services to those pets that have nowhere else to go.

For so many animals, CBHS is their last chance. Your financial gift will directly support the needs of hundreds of strays looking for a second chance!

Cedar Bend Humane Society Program Support Categories SHELTER THEM FROM HARM GIVING SOCIETY Keeps pets happy, safe, and healthy Your contribution will directly impact the housing and living conditions for the stray and homeless animals. CBHS received approximately 4,025 animals in FY2018. Your support will assure climate-controlled housing and structurally sound buildings, pens, animal runs, and fencing for these animals! This assists in keeping the animals, staff, and customers comfortable and safe during their stay or visit to the Cedar Bend Humane Society. Animals placed on the adoption floor have no time limit. Providing a safe environment for thousands of animals cost CBHS $269,300. Your support of this program will keep hundreds of pets happy and healthy while waiting for their new home!

HOMEWARD BOUND Assures animals are “adoption ready” CBHS constantly develops outreach with partnering shelters, rescues, and fosters to help rehome pets. CBHS successfully placed 2,683 pets and partnered with rescues to rehome 371 additional pets in FY2018. The resources necessary for a homeless animal to become “Adoption Ready” require: medical exam, behavior assessment, microchip, flea and tick prevention, heartworm or feline leukemia test, vaccinations, deworming, food, shelter, and bathing and grooming. We need your support to save these animals and move them into their own forever homes. Total financial support of $272,856 was necessary to accomplish this during our FY2018. One of our goals is to place as many animals as possible up for adoption every year! Will you help?

HEALTHY PETS GIVING ASSOCIATION Provides medical care to help save lives CBHS receives sick and injured animals on a daily basis! Funding is vital to continue to treat these animals. Vaccinations, treatments, and disease testing are Cedar Bend Humane Society protocols for all animals entering our facilities. CBHS found the resources

necessary through strong community support to treat 942 sick and injured animals in FY2018. This helps to save lives and to provide for healthy and happy pets! Total financial support of $224,943 was necessary to accomplish this last year. For so many animals, CBHS is their last chance. Your contribution to this program will go directly to a medical need and to save another life.

KISS AND DON’T TELL GIVING GUILD Supports the spay and neuter program Spaying and neutering are the key to controlling the homeless pet crisis! CBHS has an in-house spay and neuter program dedicated to help reduce the pet overpopulation crisis in our community. Animals entering the shelter totaled 4,025 in FY2018. The majority of these animals were unaltered. CBHS spent $201,486 to alter 1,986 pets over the last year preventing hundreds of unwanted litters. Continued community support is vital to address this issue and continue this program. Can we count on your support?

ALLEY CAT GIVING ALLIANCE Reduces euthanasia of free-roaming cats through a variety of programs Of the cats entering the CBHS, 78% are strays. We humanely trap, alter, vaccinate, ear-tip (the universal sign that a cat has been neutered), and return them to their outdoor homes. Some of these cats are offered for adoption through our Barn-Cat Program, allowing stray cats to find homes and jobs (as mousers/rodent control) in the agricultural community. Approximately 293 lives have been spared and thousands of unwanted litters have been prevented! Unfortunately, many feral cats are still euthanized due to lack of 18 resources. Help CBHS continue to reduce euthanasia by supporting this program.

The resources necessary for a homeless animal to become “ADOPTION READY” require: 1. medical exam 2. behavior assessment 3. microchip 4. flea and tick prevention 5. heartworm or feline leukemia test 6. spay or neuter 7. vaccinations 8. deworming 9. food 10. shelter 11. bathing / grooming

This program helps to save the lives of unwanted, abandoned cats and dogs by providing year-round care and housing.


CBHS PROGRAMS & SERVICES OFFICE CAT PROGRAM

Community businesses are encouraged to participate in the Cedar Bend Humane Society “Office Cat” program. The shelter will select an adoptable cat with the appropriate temperament for your office. It’s a win-win situation. The shelter cat experiences freedom, comfort, and enrichment outside of the shelter. The business supplies exposure for the cat to help them find a permanent home. This also provides additional room at the shelter, allowing CBHS to save more lives. Rehoming is a top priority of the Cedar Bend Humane Society. Fostering pets outside of the shelter is a very successful way of doing this. Business employees also benefit from pets in the workplace by decreasing their stress and increasing job performance. Pets are great morale boosters and studies indicate they help lower absenteeism. Twelve cats were adopted as a result of participating in the Office Cat Program.

LOW-INCOME / LOW-COST CLINICS AT CEDAR BEND HUMANE SOCIETY Cedar Bend Humane Society offers low-cost vaccination, spay and neuter, and microchip clinics throughout the year to benefit community pets and their families. For more information about low-cost clinics please call 319-232-6887.

HOME WITH YOU FOR THE HOLIDAYS, SPRING BREAK GET AWAY and SUMMER FOSTER CAMP Cedar Bend Humane Society wants all shelter pets to experience a “break” from the shelter in a home environment throughout the year. The purpose of these three programs is for individuals/families to care for a shelter pet in their home during designated times throughout the year - spring, summer and through the holidays. Please consider supporting the CBHS by allowing a homeless animal into your home and heart! 23

Volunteers are vital to our organization. Volunteers make it possible for us to provide extra love, pet socialization, exercise, and attention to our “guests� while we find their forever homes. CBHS volunteers help with walking dogs, socializing cats, cleaning kennels, shelter projects, and working at Cedar Bend Humane Society events. The volunteer program allows members from the community to spend time with animals that are up for adoption. Families spend time with the animals, so children experience animal interaction. High school and college students interact with the animals for possible career and educational opportunities. Many times, this interaction will meet their community service projects.

The Cedar Bend Humane Society presented to 69 community organizations, schools, and businesses emphasizing kindness, compassion, and respect of all animals.

CBHS campus walking trail provides the volunteers, prospective adopters, and staff a scenic and quiet area to exercise and spend time with shelter dogs. Currently, there are 563 active volunteers, including 132 junior volunteers under 18 years of age.

Cedar Bend Humane Society outreach presentations include educating and involving the public on the plight of homeless animals in our community along with helping to foster compassion, awareness, involvement and support of animals. This helps CBHS save more lives.

Volunteers are vital in keeping the animals happy and socialized while they wait for a family 24 to adopt them.

Please email CBHSVolunteer@gmail.com if you are interested in scheduling a presentation or volunteering for the humane society.


Mutt Hutt Dog & Cat Boarding There is a separate room for cats apart from the dog boarding area. Cats are provided individual condos and allowed free range time to play, stretch their legs, or lounge on a sunny window ledge. You can feel assured knowing your pet is comfortable and secure in his/her own kennel. Outside potty breaks in enclosed areas are provided every few hours. Morning and evening meals are served along with daily snacks.

All boarding fees support and provide for the care of the homeless pets at Cedar Bend Humane Society. This new state of the art boarding facility provides a much needed community service and is located right on the CBHS campus. The accommodations for dogs and cats staying at the Mutt Hutt include: a climate-controlled facility, spacious kennels to accommodate all sizes or multiple dogs, personal attached outdoor kennel with heated flooring, and dual fencing for added security.

Our staff is comprised of experienced caregivers and pet-lovers who are passionate and provide a safe and comfortable experience for each guest. They are well trained in monitoring each guest’s health, keeping the living space clean, and tending to every need.

DOG INTAKE REASONS

CBHS is the only facility in Black Hawk County and surrounding counties that accepts ALL stray and abandoned animals. Without CBHS, there would be nowhere for many of these animals to go.

DOGS SURRENDERED BY THEIR OWNERS 26% DOGS BROUGHT IN AS STRAYS (BY PUBLIC AND WATERLOO/CEDAR FALLS ANIMAL CONTROL) 43%

CBHS is an open admission humane society. This means we will not turn away any animals based on age, health issues, behavioral problems, or aggression tendencies. Many animals entering our facility are healthy and good natured making them candidates for adoption. There are no time limits on how long cats and dogs can be on our adoption floor at the Cedar Bend Humane Society!

We take in pets that are no longer wanted by their owners due to temperament concerns, and we shelter and care for the stray, abandoned, sick, and injured animals. Many times, these animals can be rehabilitated, but sometimes they cannot. In this case, it is our belief that euthanasia is the most humane alternative to an existence of suffering and pain or living out their life confined to a kennel or cage.

Wildlife Intake CEDAR BEND HUMANE SOCIETY RECEIVED 58 INDIVIDUAL WILDLIFE ANIMALS (RABBITS, BIRDS, RACCOONS, OPOSSUMS, SQUIRRELS, TURTLES, DUCKS, ETC.). *Cedar Bend Humane Society partners with Black Hawk Wildlife Rehabilitation Project for the care of wildlife arriving at the shelter. 27

We continue to need your help and support to help us achieve our mission: P.E.T.S. Place, Educate, Teach, and Shelter. CBHS is passionate to: Place animals in lifelong, loving homes; Educate on the issues of humane care; Teach responsible pet ownership; Shelter the stray, neglected, and unwanted. *Please consider a kennel sponsorship or a contribution to feed the shelter animals for a day.

Cedar Bend Humane Society programs such as the TNR and Barn-Cat program help to reduce animal intake. These programs allow feral cats entering the shelter to be spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and released to live out their lives as free roaming or barn cats. Due to this program, 293 cats were saved. Spaying and neutering is the cornerstone of reducing intake and pet over-population. Launching an in-house spay and neuter program has allowed us to prevent 1,912 unwanted litters. Your contribution could support the Spay and Neuter program or make the difference between life and death if you support a feral cat through the TNR or Barn-Cat program.

MEMORIAL PET CEMETERY Cedar Bend Humane Society offers time before each burial for the family to have a memorial ceremony or viewing.

End of Life Services Cedar Bend Humane Society has a trained and compassionate staff to offer euthanasia as a service for families who have pets nearing the end of their quality of life.

Cedar Bend Humane Society Memorial Cemetery is available to anyone wishing to have a resting place for his/her pet. The cemetery is on the Cedar Bend Humane Society campus. It is a fenced acreage, which includes lilac bushes, rose bushes, and a center garden with a bench for rest and reflection. CBHS’s pet cemetery provides 1,500 plots where people have buried their deceased pets with room for an additional 500 pets. Volunteers and staff provide the cemetery up-keep. Families may have a ceremony and bring items to decorate the gravesite on designated burial dates. Cremations are offered for deceased pets. If an owner requests a private cremation, he/ she will receive the pet’s ashes back to them in a velvet pouch with wording.

The “Five Freedoms” is a core concept in animal welfare. It states that an animal’s primary welfare needs can be met by safeguarding the following five freedoms: Freedom from Freedom from pain, Freedom from fear discomfort by and distress by injury, or providing an ensuring disease by appropriate conditions and prevention or environment treatment which rapid diagnosis including shelter avoid mental and treatment. and a suffering. comfortable resting area.

30

Freedom to express normal behavior by providing sufficient space, proper facilities, and company of the animal's own kind.

Freedom from hunger and thirst by ready access to fresh water and a diet to maintain full health and vigor.

If the “Five Freedoms” cannot be met, Cedar Bend Humane Society may need to make the difficult decision to euthanize an animal.


THE TOUGH DECISION EUTHANASIA

The Cedar Bend Humane Society is committed to reducing euthanasia and to providing humane care for all animals under its protection. We are an open admission shelter, which means we accept animals regardless of health, age, breed, or temperament. We continually strive to end animal over-population and homelessness. We strive to do the greatest good, with limited resources, to help the largest number of animals. In balancing the welfare of animals in our care, with the safety of the community in mind, we realize not all animals are suitable for adoption. The Cedar Bend Humane Society will use all possible resources as alternatives to euthanasia when possible. Occasionally, an animal’s temperament and/ or health concerns may be beyond the scope of Cedar Bend Humane Society’s available resources. In this case, CBHS believes euthanasia is the most humane alternative to an existence of suffering and pain or living out its life confined to a kennel or cage.

Difficult decisions need to be made. When the decision to end an animal’s life is made, we believe that compassionate euthanasia by injection is the most humane and dignified method. At times, the shelter is full, and we are not able to accommodate the large influx of animals. This tends to be a seasonal issue. Euthanizing stray and feral cats due to available space sometimes becomes necessary. We do NOT euthanize healthy, adoptable animals due to the length of time they have been at the shelter. There are no time limits on how long pets can remain in the adoption center as long as the pets are happy and healthy. Euthanasia is only a factor as a last resort to relieve suffering for untreatably ill, injured, or aggressive animals. We continue to set our sights on a future where all animals are in loving and caring homes. 31


FAQ Frequently Asked Questions Cedar Bend Humane Society

How long has Cedar Bend Humane Society been in existence? The original care of animals in the Cedar Valley started in the early 1900s. The shelter started in the early 1960s and now operates four facilities at 1166 W. Airline Hwy, Waterloo, IA.

How much is needed annually to operate Cedar Bend Humane Society? We depend solely on contributions from individuals, businesses, city/county contracts, and organizations and revenue from our boarding center to fund $1,086,069 that covers health, medical, and adoption services for pets, buildings and grounds, and pays wages for our 30 staff members. We do not receive federal funding or donations from national animal organizations.

Does CBHS euthanize animals, and why do animals get euthanized? Cedar Bend Humane Society is an “open admissions� shelter. This means we accept every animal regardless of age, temperament, or health. Every animal is evaluated to determine adoptability based on their health and temperament. We provide medical care for as many animals as possible treating a wide range of illnesses such as respiratory infections, pneumonia, urinary tract infections, and skin infections. As funding allows, we provide surgeries and treatment for other expensive conditions such as heartworm disease, broken bones, lacerations, and amputations. We partner with rescue groups, foster homes, and other humane societies to provide alternative options for animals when we are full to capacity or when an animal needs behavior modification outside of what the shelter staff can provide. Unfortunately, we recognize the inevitable necessity for euthanasia in certain circumstances. We do humanely euthanize unhealthy, untreatable animals as well as animals who pose a safety risk to members of our staff and the public. We believe it is important to provide healthy, nonaggressive animals to individuals and families who adopt from our shelter.

Are there time limits for animals that do not get adopted? There are no time limits for animals at our adoption center. Animals remain available for adoption as long as they remain physically and mentally healthy. We have had some animals at the adoption center for as long as 18 months prior to finding a suitable home. CBHS staff and volunteers provide daily enrichment and outdoor exercise time for all adoption animals waiting for their forever home.

How many animals does CBHS euthanize? CBHS takes in hundreds of animals every month. Part of our mission is to place as many animals as possible into lifelong, loving homes! In 2018, we impacted many lives by securing homes or rescue opportunities for 2,683 animals, reunited 371 lost pets with their owners and released 293 altered feral cats into barn homes and TNR colonies. These saved lives represent 82% of the animals. The remaining were euthanized due to disease, illness, or aggressive behaviors making them unsafe to 32 re-enter the community.


What happens if an animal is not adopted? CBHS partners with a network of humane societies and animal rescue organizations nationwide. We are very lucky to live in a community that has many volunteers willing to socialize and foster animals in need. If an animal is taking longer than normal to find a family or if an animal is becoming stressed due to shelter confinement, we solicit the assistance from one of many partners to take in or foster the animal in need. Networking is invaluable in the animal industry as it provides options and resources meeting a variety of needs for the hundreds of animals requiring assistance.

Does CBHS have paid staff? Yes, staff manage many different animal and humane situations every day. There are no days off, weekends or holidays, when caring for pets. It is a huge commitment, and pets rely on the staff for all their needs. Every staff member, no matter his/her position, is dedicated to P.E.T.S. (to Place, to Educate, to Teach, and to Shelter). We have 34 caring individuals to fill the following job positions in three separate buildings on campus: co-directors, adoption counselors, kennel attendants, medical technicians, animal control officers, intake receptionists, media coordinator, volunteer and outreach coordinator, and a fundraising coordinator.

Does CBHS receive funding from the government or agencies? No. CBHS is a 501c3 non-profit organization. All funding is received through donations or provided services. CBHS does not receive funding from national animal organizations. CBHS partners with these organizations by taking in animals to be put up for adoption, pursuing grant opportunities, and receiving educational material provided through national sheltering agencies. However, we do not receive or send funding to/from other animal organizations, and all donations given to the CBHS are used to support local community animals here in the Cedar Valley.

Can anyone volunteer at CBHS? Yes! CBHS relies on volunteers to assist the organization in a variety of ways: socializing animals, grounds and maintenance, events, transporting rescue animals, and assisting with adoption events. We welcome all who wish to volunteer, and we have a coordinator on staff who is dedicated to assist, train, and coordinate all volunteer efforts.

What steps does CBHS take to find a stray animal’s owner? We examine each stray animal for a form of identification through tags on collars or tattoos. Each animal is scanned for a microchip. Our goal is to reunite lost pets with their owners. If there is no identification found, we check local “lost and found� social media sites and our in-house lost and found directory. If the pet does have a form of identification, we make every effort to contact the owner through phone and/or certified mail. Animals that have a form of identification are automatically held for seven days to allow the owner a chance to claim them. Anyone looking for his/her pet is encouraged to visit the CBHS intake center to see if we are holding the lost pet. We also offer an in-house lost and found directory where we hold information for people missing their pets. 33


Does the CBHS offer Animal Control services for the community? Cedar Bend Humane Society provides Black Hawk County with animal control services. CBHS responds to calls and aids in rescuing abandoned, sick or injured, and stray animals for rural Black Hawk County. We respond to stray animal calls Monday-Friday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. The Black Hawk County Sheriff’s department handles animal emergencies after 5:00 p.m. or on weekend days. The cities of Waterloo and Cedar Falls have their own animal control enforcement department. Animal Control officers are city employees and handle the animal complaint requests and pick up all stray pets within the community. CBHS partners with the cities to take in and hold all of the stray animals picked up by the city animal control. Each animal is held for a specified period of time set by each municipality.

How long are stray animals held and what happens if they are not claimed by their owner? Each animal is held for a predetermined time to allow the owner time to claim his/her lost pet. Hold times vary and are set by each city. Black Hawk County and Cedar Falls strays are held for five days. Waterloo strays are held for three days. Unclaimed strays become the property of the CBHS. Each animal will undergo an examination and a temperament evaluation from the CBHS medical team to determine adoptability. Prior to going up for adoption, each animal is altered, vaccinated, dewormed, groomed, tested for specific viruses, and receives a microchip. After medical assessment, animals are moved to the Adoption Center and become available for adoption.

Does CBHS offer veterinary services to the public? The humane society provides medical care and assistance to the community’s homeless animal population. CBHS spays and neuters community-owned barn cats at a reduced fee throughout the year by appointment. Low-cost, low-income vaccination clinics for community-owned dogs and cats are also offered throughout the year.

Does the CBHS have a veterinarian on staff? Dr. Endres is a volunteer veterinarian who comes in on a weekly basis to administer rabies vaccinations. He also assists the CBHS medical team in the treatment of sick or injured animals. Dr. Melick is contracted to spay and neuter all of the shelter animals prior to being placed up for adoption. He performs these services for a reduced cost.

What medical care is provided to shelter animals? Cedar Bend Humane Society’s medical team includes four technicians and two veterinarians. All shelter animals are provided with basic medical care, including but not limited to: vaccinations, parasite control, antibiotics when needed, and a microchip. All shelter animals are spayed or neutered prior to being placed up for adoption. If an animal enters the shelter with an illness 34 or injury needing emergency attention, it is immediately taken to a local veterinarian for treatment.


Do you adopt cats to barn homes? Yes! The CBHS will alter, vaccinate, and ear tip stray cats that are not good house cat candidates. Applicants must provide the barn cat with an outdoor shelter and daily food and water. We recommend owners capture and vaccinate their barn cats annually, if possible. Individuals interested in adopting a barn cat complete an on-line application. Once received, a CBHS representative will be in touch to discuss possible barn cat options. (Cats residing at the adoption center have been evaluated and are house cat candidates, not to be considered for the Barn-Cat program.)

Does the Humane Society participate in a feral cat TNR program? Yes! Stray feral cats that are brought to the CBHS through the city animal control department are candidates for the TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) program. Feral cats that are deemed healthy are altered, vaccinated, ear tipped, and returned to the originating location (providing that the resident wishes to have them returned) to live out their lives.

If I send my animal for boarding, do I run a risk of it getting loose? No. The Mutt Hutt boarding facility has 32 state-of-the-art, secure kennels. Each kennel has an attached, covered outdoor run. The outside kennel area is behind two security fences. The Mutt Hutt has a grassy area for outside exercise time which is enclosed/secured by a six foot vinyl privacy fence. All pets are supervised by the Mutt Hutt staff at all times during outside play time.

Are contributions to the organization tax deductible? Yes, contributions are completely tax deductible. CBHS will provide a receipt and letter of substantiation for your contribution to share with your tax preparer for a deduction. Cedar Bend Humane Society is a local, independent, private, non-profit 501c3 organization that is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.

Are gifts of stock or land accepted as contributions? Yes, gifts of stock or land are sold with the proceeds going to the organization to pay for needed animal supplies, services, and care.
