Welcome to the DRHS


It is only with the support of people like you that we are able to continue to not only rescue our companion friends but support, educate and advocate for them, too! We are so thankful that you are interested in helping us continue to build a community of unconditional love!

About Us

The Dubuque Regional Humane Society is a no-kill, open admission humane society that works hard to not only protect and promote the well-being of all animals, but build families. Learn about our history and how we are creating brighter futures.


Whether you are searching for your beloved pet, looking for a way to retain for your best friend as part of your family, or are considering a membership to Hadley’s Dog Park, we are here for you. Explore our services that connect people and pets.


Strut Your Mutt at our annual walk or toast your glass at the Tails at Twilight gala – all for a great cause! Over the years, our events have helped raise both awareness and thousands of dollars to support animals in need on their pathway to a new home. We hope you will join us at our next event!
