VIDEO: Adopt Your Next Pet from the Cedar Bend Humane Society

Watch this wonderful video to follow a family through the pet adoption process at the Cedar Bend Humane Society.

Thanks to the Young family for adopting Luna and for starring in our video.

Thank you to Josh Berendes (JB Media) and Pixel Labs for putting this incredible video together for us.

We hope you love the video as much as we do!


UPDATE: All the puppies have homes. Thank you!


A litter of six puppies recently arrived at the Cedar Bend Humane Society.

The pups are approximately seven weeks old. There are two boys and four girls in the litter. The puppies are black lab mixes.

Three of the puppies (Luke, Darby, and Sassy) have black fur with a little white on their chests.

Two of the puppies (Polo and Fiona) are mostly black with speckled white fur on their faces and front legs.

One of the puppies (Lorelai) is mostly white with some black patches.

All the puppies have their first round of vaccinations. They are microchipped and started on flea/tick prevention.

**PLEASE NOTE: Due to their young age, the puppies will be kept in a separate room in our adoption center. If you’re interested in adopting one of the puppies, please fill out an application first. Once the application is approved, an adoption counselor will contact you to meet the puppy. Thank you.

FURever Home Friday: Oreo

If an Oreo is your favorite cookie, check out this Oreo. He is sure to be your favorite furry friend!

Oreo is a rat terrier. We think he got his name from his fur coloring. His head and tail are black and his middle is white!

Oreo is a senior dog that wants a loving home fit for retirement. He’s about 14 years old, and he has hearing loss.

Oreo is a friendly dog looking for a couch to curl up on. He promises not to take up a lot of space!

Even though he’s a senior dog, Oreo doesn’t only want to be a couch potato. Oreo still enjoys going on walks, and he does very well on a leash.

While at the Cedar Bend Humane Society Oreo has gotten along well with other dogs and with cats. At his age, we think he’d prefer a home without small children.

Will you give Oreo his FURever Home?

Visit the Cedar Bend Humane Society at 1166 W. Airline Highway in Waterloo to meet Oreo and to fill out an adoption application.

We’re open every day except Monday from 10 to 5.
