  • 35 people are interested

PETS holds adoption events to showcase the cats and dogs available for adoption at least once a month at the Jordan Creek Petco in West Des Moines. Events are typically scheduled the first Saturday and Sunday of the month and generally run from 11:00 am - 4:00 pm. Volunteers are needed to staff the event in 2.5 hour shifts to show the animals and speak with potential adopters.

Volunteers between the ages of 12 - 15 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian that is also a PETS volunteer. Noble Hours are available to high school students enrolled in that volunteer program.

Mission Statement

P.E.T.S. (Protecting Even the Strays) was created with the vision of humanely assisting the numerous stray and feral cats in Guthrie County. P.E.T.S. has now grown to become a safe haven for many abused, orphaned, and abandoned animals.


P.E.T.S. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit rescue organization consisting of many dedicated volunteers. We provide humane shelter and services for animals in need in Guthrie County and surrounding areas. While we hold a shelter license with the State of Iowa, we are not a traditional shelter. All of our dogs and a majority of our cats and kittens are in foster homes. Only cats reside at our shelter location in Panora. We are a no-kill shelter and will not euthanize based on space, size, age, or illness. every animal that comes into our care is important. Every animal matters.


We'll work with your schedule.
