More Information






APSI's "SNYP" program has provided financial assistance to alter over 6000 pets since we began over 15 years ago. This has prevented hundreds of thousands of dogs and cats being "born to be killed."

Be a part of the solution

APSI has made substantial impact on reducing the numbers of surplus animals in the metro area. But there is so much more that needs to be accomplished, we need your help to do more.
•Spay/neuter your pets.
•Adopt from shelters.
•Become a member of the Animal Protection Society of Iowa and help us prevent the suffering before it begins.
•Donate to this good cause.








Who is the Animal Protection Society of Iowa?

APSI is a non-profit organization, based in the Des Moines metro area, funded primarily by private tax-deductible donations. We are a group of volunteers who care very much about cats and dogs and we want to end the pet explosion in the most humane way possible. We do that by providing financial assistance to lower-income people to get their pets spayed or neutered, thereby preventing the births (and deaths) of unwanted animals.


APSI only helps with financial assistance for spaying/neutering. Unfortunately we cannot help assist injured pets, feral cats or animal abuse/neglect. For those issues, please contact your local animal shelter or police department.


Why are healthy dogs and cats euthanized?

Killing healthy dogs and cats continues because there are simply too many pets being born. Too many people let their pets reproduce, irresponsible breeders continue breeding, and feral cats continue to multiply. Animal shelters work hard to find homes for animals they take in, but those that don't find homes are euthanized in the Des Moines area shelters every day!


How can we help overpopulation?

First we need to reduce the number of animals that are being born. Aggressive spay/neuter programs have already produced excellent results in many communities around the country. The number of animals euthanized is directly linked to the number of surplus animals born.
