During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
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.
