Dubuque Humane Society


The Dubuque Humane Society was founded in 1901 for the prevention of cruelty to horses and children. As the gasoline engine replaced horses and “human services” began looking after the needs of children, the DRHS evolved and shifted its attention to focus on companion animals. Services were expanded to include cruelty investigations, humane education, and volunteer programs. Each year, the DRHS cares for over 5,000 animals, investigates over 400 large and small animal cruelty cases, and presents humane education programs to more than 5,000 tri-state area students. The mission of the Dubuque Regional Humane Society is to promote the human-animal bond and the humane treatment of all animals.
