We are a resource and community for all people interested in attending our vegan events, meeting new friends, and learning more about the positive impacts of veganism.  Our Mission is to promote the joy, compassion, and life-enhancing possibilities of a Vegan lifestyle.  Based in the Iowa City area. 


The Iowa Pet Alliance (IPA) works to protect pets by lobbying for strong animal welfare laws, supporting pro-pet legislators and candidates, and empowering citizens to take positive action for a more humane Iowa.

A Special Needs, No Kill Shelter

We rescue cats and dogs that are injured, handicapped, have a serious medical condition, are abused, are pregnant, are nursing moms, or are orphans that require bottle feeding. We rehabilitate the animals, who run a higher risk of euthanasia in a traditional shelter setting and then adopt them into loving forever homes. Animals are not euthanized because they have been at the shelter for a certain length of time.
