Welcome to the Driftless Humane Society.

License #466290


The Driftless Humane Society is an open admission,  no-kill dog and cat shelter, located in Viroqua, Wisconsin.  We accept all cats and dogs that need assistance, regardless of age, health status or temperament.  We strive to find permanent homes for all healthy cats and dogs, including those with treatable medical/behavioral conditions.  Our job is to provide shelter, food and enrichment programs for our animals.  We work closely with Animal Tracks Veterinary Services to provide state of the art medical care.

We do not euthanize based on length of stay or space requirements. It is important to understand that we may be required to euthanize an animal if it is too sick or injured to be healed.  We also may be required to euthanize an animal if it has behavioral issues that deem it a safety risk for adoption.

Take Action

As we begin 2019 and make resolutions, let’s remember the homeless dogs and cats that come to the shelter. Almost all of our operating budget comes from donations, adoptions and fundraising. There are many ways you can ‘donate’ to the shelter … actual donations of goods or money, volunteering, organizing fundraisers - we are open to any and all suggestions and ideas.

We hold volunteer orientation the first Saturday of the month at 9:00 a.m. at the facility.

Donating couldn’t be easier - click on the ‘donate’ button below and send some money our way!

Navigate to our Donation List and see our list of food, cleaning supplies, etc.
