Furry Fun Run!
Thank you to all who attended our Furry Fun Run!
Pet of the Week
Floppy is a five year old Pug/Beagle mix who was surrendered to the shelter with his two siblings and mom when his owner could no longer take care of them. Initially shy, Floppy is a very sweet dog who loves to be around people. He will require a fairly quiet home and will need some patience initially, but will quickly become a loving member of the family. Floppy is neutered and up to date on all initial vaccinations.
Pet of the Week
Daisy is a three-month-old domestic shorthair kitten who came into the shelter as a four week old, underweight stray. She was found all alone and needed immediate care. She was quickly accepted at the shelter by a mom cat who had kittens of her own. After spending time in foster care, Daisy’s siblings were adopted and now she is looking for her forever home. Daisy is spayed and up to date on initial 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
