Happy Tales Ranch and Rescue Iowa

We are a non-profit feline rescue located in Central Iowa. Our mission is to rescue, provide a safe haven, and care for abandoned animals until a permanent home can be found.  Each one of our adoptable has a story and each one has a specific need, thus each home will be picked according to that particular pet's needs! We strive to make sure both the families and animals are happy and take extra precautions to ensure this.  If you are interested in adopting from our organization, you must first fill out an application, and a team member will reach out to you further.
