 Pet of the Week


Fredo is a one and half year old Pekingese mix who has been bounced around several homes and is waiting to find his forever home.  He was surrendered by someone who got him from a friend but who only had him for two weeks before a landlord said he couldn’t stay.  Fredo is a friendly, playful dog who does well with other dogs and lived with cats.  Due to some sensitivities, it is recommended he go to a home with children age five or above.  Fredo is neutered and up to date on all initial vaccinations.

Pet of the Week


Olive is a ten-month-old domestic shorthair tortoiseshell kitty who came into the shelter with twelve other cats.  After being treated for an upper respiratory infection, she is finally available for adoption.  Olive is an extremely affectionate, loving cat who loves to be petted and held.  She is spayed and up to date on vaccinations.

 Have You Ever Thought About Fostering?

Everyone enjoys hearing the updates, and seeing the wonderful pictures we receive from our volunteers while they have foster animals in their homes, then witnessing the wonderful adoptions at the shelter, right? Now it could be your turn to be a part of this process! Are you interested in helping us save and care for more cats, kittens, puppies and/or dogs simply by opening up your home? Have you thought about it, but weren't sure exactly what fostering entails? Now is the PEFECT time to ask! As a volunteer at the Sauk County Humane Society, you have a wonderful and rewarding opportunity to directly help the lives of animals that come through our door.
The need for committed foster families is especially urgent from spring to fall, known in the animal shelter world as "kitten season." Cats (and many animals in general) tend to breed in warm weather, which means local animal shelters get flooded with litters, sometimes accompanied by their moms, but very often orphaned. These babies can't stay in the shelters--their undeveloped immune systems make them susceptible to diseases carried by other animals.
Fostering in a home environment where they are able to grow and thrive makes a world of a difference to these animals. You are saving lives and creating a positive outcome for these innocent creatures! The shelter is always taking applications for foster families, but ESPECIALLY now! Already have animals at home? That's okay! You can have current pets at home and still foster dogs/cats. Call at the shelter at 356-2520 or send the Volunteer Coordinator an email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
