    They are wonderful and take in all kinds of pets. Like other places, wish they could care for more. Stop out and see them and the pets!

  • 2. Good Homes

    by: livie20

    This shelter is the place to go if you live in Des Moines. They are all like a big family. Dogs, cats! They give you the most love! It was hard finding a stray and giving it to them, but I knew they would find a good home for her. And thats also where I got my dog Gizmo...she is the cutest dog ever, I cant believe no one else owned her??? Otherwise this is the place to go!


    Puppy Love!


    Seeing them so unhappy wanted to make me take them all...
