Dog DNA Day at the Animal Rescue League of Iowa

  • Overview

    Do you ever get asked "What kind of dog is that?" We have your answer! Bring your dog to the ARL to have a DNA test done! For $75, you get the DNA kit and you'll swab your dog's cheek and we will send in the DNA sample to the lab. Results will be sent to you via email.

    A few guidelines for the event:
    1. Arrive within your scheduled time slot. Pre-registrations are preferred to have enough test kits. Walk-ins will be handled on a first-come, first-serve basis with the left-over tests from pre-registrations. Register at the event website link to ensure your dog gets tested.
    2. We will have A LOT of dogs coming for the event, so please be respectful.
    3. If your dog is nervous with other dogs, you can take the kit to the car to swab him/her. Please be aware of the temperature outside.
    4. NO retractable leashes, choke chains, or prong collars.
    Note: $75 is the lowest price in town, there is no sales tax, and 100% of the proceeds help homeless pets! If you cannot make it to this event but are still interested in a kit, you can purchase one in our Animal House Store for $90. The $75 promotion is for day of DNA Day participants ONLY.
