In addition to the ongoing need for general donations, the Cedar Valley Humane Society often needs specialty items. It’s not possible to list everything, so if you have items to donate that you don’t see listed, please call us at (319) 362-6288.

For your convenience, we have divided our basic wish list into categories. Please feel free to print and distribute the lists as you see fit. Keep in mind that we will update the wish lists as our needs change, so be sure to check back often for our most current needs.

Please take note of the following items that we cannot use:


Comforters (they are too hard to clean thoroughly and are hard on our washers and dryers)

Sheets (both flat and fitted)
