It’s a Fiesta! We have loads of kittens who are so absolutely cute and feisty and are ready for their fur-ever home. They will be in our Colony Room hanging from the rafters on Saturday, stop by and choose your new companion. All kittens are $50!
We’ll be trimming the tree, decorating and making snowflakes, enjoying hot chocolate and cookies from 10a to 2p.
Join the Howl-O-ween fun, and help raise funds for the Viroqua Bark Park all while walking your dog!
Through cooperative efforts, the Viroqua Bark Park has been extensively planned and designed for year-round dog exercise, socialization, and safety. An off-leash dog park where people and their dogs can enjoy playing and socializing in a park-like setting. While not yet opened, the key to develop the park is funding through donations and great events like this! Join us on October 27 in Eckhart Park to learn more about the Viroqua Bark Park.
All dogs and humans are encouraged to dress up in their Halloween costumes! A doggie costume contest will take place at Noon, with four size categories (Large, medium, small, and toy dogs) judges by three SURPRISE Judges!
Many people plan to join, although they don't have a dog, or their dogs can't participate. We welcome everyone to come learn more about the Viroqua Bark Park and join in the fun!

Business here is booming, and that's not always a good thing. Our dedicated staff is working hard to keep up with the cleaning, walking, grooming and everything else needed to care for these animals. Last week we received 12 animals from law enforcement due to a neglect/abuse situation. At this time we have over 40 cats, 15 kittens, 20 dogs and 5 birds.
Although we can always use money and donations, what we really need right now are foster families. Being a foster is a great way to enjoy a cat or dog without a long term commitment, and allows the animal to thrive in a home environment. It also gives us good insight into the animals needs and behaviors to place them in a good permanent home.
We will be having our first Foster Family Orientation on Tuesday, August 21 at 5:30p. You must be 18 years old or older to foster.
Scratching your head asking "what the heck is a Caturday?" It's a Saturday dedicated to the celebration of cats, of course. And it's going to be Saturday AND Sunday, so it can get a little confusing.
We will be open on Saturday and Sunday, August 18 and 19 from 10a to 4p and are having a cat and kitten extravaganza. Cats 1 year and older will be $35, and those under 1 year will be $60. Kittens are cuter in pairs, so we can do two for $100. Or even buy two get one free! We'll consider all reasonable offers!
