Pet of the Week
Poppy is a three year old Chihuahua mix who has been bounced around through no fault of his own. He was surrendered by someone who only had him for a month after taking him from a home where he wasn’t properly taken care of. Despite his uncertain history, Poppy is a friendly, outgoing little dog who does well with other dogs, knows several commands, and is eager to please. He has also lived with cats but we recommend a home with older children as he is easily startled. Poppy is neutered and up to date on all initial vaccinations.
Pet of the Week
Dexter is one of a bonded pair of ferrets who came into the shelter when their owner could no longer afford to take care of them. Dexter and Jezzibelle are both about a year and three months old and must be adopted together. They are playful, social ferrets who are highly entertaining. They are neutered and spayed and both are descented.

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
