Check out our new hours. Most DCHS and Wildlife Center services are by appointment only, including reuniting lost animals, surrendering a pet, wildlife rehabilitation, and more. Adoption visits are first-come, first-served. We recommend checking our current waitlist prior to your visit.

COVID-19 has dramatically changed life as we know it. What hasn't changed is Dane County Humane Society's focus on providing care to our community's animals. We have had to make significant changes to keep our humans safe while providing for animals with absolutely nowhere else to go in our community. At the same time, we've had to make the very difficult decision to cancel or suspend programs and services, several of which generate much needed funds to help us care for the animals. We had to cancel Toto's Gala, temporarily close our thrift store, and more.

Recognizing this is a critical time for DCHS and our animals, the Werndli Charitable Trust has issued a challenge grant. For every dollar donated here, they will double the gift, up to $15,000, through April 1!

Thank you for helping DCHS be here for animals during this unexpected crisis.
