The community is invited to celebrate Holiday with the Hounds - a holiday open house at the Iowa City Animal Care & Adoption Center, 3910 Napoleon Lane -  from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 10, 2022.

Share the joy of the season with our furry friends and Iowa City animal services staff. Enjoy snacks, sip on some cocoa, and take the opportunity to meet the animals. This is also a chance to possibly meet your new four-legged best friend! The Animal Center has many wonderful pets in need of loving forever homes.
