Cedar Bend is full of volunteers and staff that care about the animals. Unfortunately they ARE a KILL shelter. Many of the animals entering their doors are euthanized for reasons other than medical. They do not have a veterinarian on staff, they use local vets (whomever is available and willing). It is unfortunate, but they are also the only "shelter" in the area and cover many counties in northeast Iowa. They are also the contracted "animal control" for the city of Waterloo and parts of Cedar Falls.
Cedar Bend is inundated with thousands of animals per year and has very limited space available at this time, so their kill rates are very high (as are most shelters in the US). If you are looking to find an animal(s) new homes, I would suggest contacting one of the 100s of animal rescue groups for information and alternatives to dropping them at kill shelters like Cedar Bend Humane Society. You can easily find one in your area by searching the web.
If you are looking to adopt an animal, please do consider Cedar Bend as well as one of the 100s of rescue groups in Iowa. All these animals need good homes!
