We are sad to announce the closing of the Safe Journey Adoption Center effective  January 2014




    Safe Journey Rescue

   Adoption Center

          The Safe Journey Adoption Center is located in Groomingdales Pet Salon & Boutique at 2275 16th Ave SW (across from Leonardo's and Dominos) in Cedar Rapids. Before volunteering for the first time, there will be some paperwork to sign and a brief orientation and tour. We hope helping us keep our cat adoption rooms clean and therefore our animals healthy and stress-free will be fun and rewarding. We take the "Five Freedoms" of sheltering very seriously and with your help we can achieve them:

  • Freedom from Hunger and Thirst By ready access to fresh water and diet to maintain health and vigor.
  • Freedom from Discomfort By providing an appropriate environment including shelter and a comfortable resting area.
  • Freedom from Pain, Injury or Disease By prevention or rapid diagnosis and treatment.
  • Freedom to Express Normal Behavior By providing sufficient space, proper facilities and company of the animal's own kind.
  • Freedom from Fear and Distress By ensuring conditions and treatment which avoid mental suffering.
