For kittens and cats first arriving at the Animal Rescue League of Iowa, we are preparing a new destination named the Clowder House. Our existing cat condos in the Main building will be doubling in size. You can be a part of this needed change and help make a difference.
At the Clowder House, the first floor will be used by veterinary and cat behavior teams to evaluate arriving cats and kittens. Upstairs, areas are designed for cats who need more space and cats and kittens arriving from cruelty seizures as well as for feral cats. The design will help lessen stress and allow our staff and volunteers to help build trust and continue to interact and evaluate each cat on an individual basis.
When ready for adoption, the cats will move to our Main building or one of our partner or satellite adoption locations to meet their new family.
All of the existing cat condos in the ARL’s Main building will be doubling in size! The additional space will provide comfort for each kitten and cat during their stay at the ARL by reducing stress and preventing stress-related illness.
You can see why we have named 2017 Year of the Cat - Extreme Cat Condo Makeover. The Clowder House will allow us to save more cat and kitten lives and improve the lives of all the cats in our care.
