Meet Siggi, one of our success stories.
pets of the week
I’m Trixie. I’m a sweet, year and a half old terrier mix. I came into the shelter with my two brothers, Fritz and Jimmy. I’m considered a ‘stray’, which I think is a little deragatory, I’m no stray! I’m a wonderful girl who just lost my way and ended up here at the Humane Society. I am extremely shy, I haven’t spent much time with people so like to hide when they come visit. If a new person sits quietly for a while, and is calm and considerate then I like to sidle up and give them a sniff. If they stay really stilll, I might let them pet me and maybe get a cuddle. I am going to do great in a forever home, with kids and other animals and people, as long as my new family knows it’s going to take a while for me to warm up and figure out my place in the pack. Oh, and I’ll need some obedience and housebreaking training. Please come see me.
Stop by the shelter during our open hours to visit our adoptable cats and dogs. All cats and dogs can be taken to our meet-and-greet room to spend time alone with you, your family, and even your other pets. Please let us know if you plan to bring a pet for the meet-and-greet so we can be sure the visit goes smoothly.

We partner with Animal Tracks Veterinary Service in Viroqua, Wisconsin. It is our practice to spay/neuter and vaccinate all cats and dogs before adoption. There are time, however, that someone may wish to adopt an animal prior to spay/neuter. We will give the new owner a certificate that is good for 30 days to have the animal spayed/neutered at Animal Tracks.
We will not adopt out any animal that is not current on vaccinations.
We guarantee it!
It's not always easy to integrate a shelter pet into a new home, particularly if there are other pets in the household. We encourage a 30 day foster period before adoption, and if you need to return your adopted pet within the first 30 days of adoption we will refund your adoption fee.
