The Jasper County Animal Rescue League and Humane Society provides a haven for homeless animals in Jasper County, Iowa, and surrounding areas. We strive to save every life possible utilizing the most progressive sheltering practices and lifesaving programs. We strive to find responsible, loving and permanent homes for all of the animals in our care and to engage the community through education and promotion of more respectful relationship between human and animal.
In 1957, Newton Animal Rescue League and Humane Society was chartered. Irma Callison ran the league on her own until 1973 when June Anderson volunteered as the first Humane Officer (Animal Control Officer) for the Newton Animal Rescue League. June volunteered in this position for 19 years. In 1997, the first Director was hired and operations expanded to include all of Jasper County.
The Jasper County Animal Rescue League and Humane Society was created in 2000.
In 2017 the Jasper County Animal Rescue League and Humane Society completed their first year as a “No-Kill” Shelter. We will continue to move forward working to save as many lives as possible in Jasper County.
