Meet Piper, our Pet of The Week

Our pet of the week is waiting for you at the Des Moines County Humane Society . Each week we spotlight an animal that is in search of their forever home.

This week we are featuring Piper. Piper is an approximately 3 year old female Pitbull.  She was surrendered to the shelter  after having weaned a litter of puppies.  All pups were adopted and now it’s sweet Piper’s turn to find herself a forever home.  Piper is very sweet and loving, not to mention adorable! Thanks to a grant the Des Moines County Humane Society recieved, Piper has a discounted adoption fee of just $60.00!

Stop by the Des Moines County Humane Society if you are interested in adopting. They are open 3-6pm Tues-Fri and from 1-5pm on the weekends.


Not in the position to adopt yet you still want to learn more about helping animals in the state of Iowa?  The Humane Society of the United States – Iowa and The Des Moines County Humane Society of Burlington, Iowa will be hosting “How to help animals in Burlington and Beyond” on September 4th from 5:30pm – 7:30pm at the Burlington Public Library. This event is free and open to the public. As stated on the Facebook event page,  “Attendees will learn how to advocate for animals, how to work with state and local officials, why some organizations oppose stronger anti-cruelty laws, and what communities across the state are doing to protect pets. The event is free and open to the public.”
