Adoption special happening now at MHS


Mariah Garcia Midlands Humane Society

The hustle and bustle of summer vacation is over, but MHS is still just as busy. The Midlands Humane Society serves the majority of Pottawattamie County and strays and surrenders are brought in daily in need of food, shelter and medical attention. In August alone, 136 dogs, 178 cats, and 22 small animals passed through the doors of The Humane Society and since mid-July, approximately 300 pets have been spayed or neutered…and there’s no slowing down anytime soon ! With contributions increasing and kennel space shrinking, MHS is offering a special adoption offer in hopes of finding these deserving animals their second chance at a forever home. That means it’s the perfect time to find a cuddly buddy to snuggle up with on the couch to watch your favorite scary movies or TV shows with.

The current adoption special includes both cats and dogs at a reduced rate. All cats over the age of one will have an adoption fee of only $50, kittens under the age of one will have an adoption fee of $100, and some dogs will have an adoption fee of $50. You can view these selected dogs by visiting the Midlands website at All animals available for adoption at MHS have been spayed or spayed, are microchipped, flea/tick preventative treatment, and receive age and species appropriate vaccinations.

MHS Pets of the Week presented by Dvorak Law Group, LLC: Arlene is a 2 year old female Catahoula mix who is very intelligent and loves to learn, especially when it comes to treats. She is looking for an owner who can prioritize her basic training. She is an energetic girl who would love to join you on your morning run or hikes. Queen is a 4 year old female Pitbull mix who would love to be the queen of your castle. She would do her best as the only animal in the house and promises to make up for it by being your best friend. She thrives on attention and getting all the snacks. Griffin is a 5 year old male German Shepherd mix who is full of energy and loves everyone he meets. After arriving at MHS, Griffin tested positive for heartworm. He is currently undergoing treatment and any adopter will need to be given the opportunity to transport him to and from MHS to complete these treatments until he is cleared. Be sure to research heartworm before adopting. On a personal note, I adopted a heartworm carrier dog from MHS five years ago and he is the best companion I could have asked for. Blue is a 6 year old male Pitbull who just loves to be loved. Her favorite pastimes include belly scratching, giving kisses and impressing you with her cool tricks. He has successfully lived with children and other dogs. All dogs listed are part of the current adoption special and can be adopted for a reduced fee of $50. If you are unable to adopt, please feel free to share this news with friends, family or colleagues who may be interested in welcoming a new pet into their home.
