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.

approval or denial

The application review generally takes 24-48 hours, depending upon how quickly we can contact your references.  We will notify you as soon as we have made our adoption decision.


veterinary services

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.
