57 Dogs and 73 Cats Find Homes During Adoption Specials


Two recent Dane County Humane Society adoption specials helped find loving families for many homeless cats and dogs!

Two recent Dane County Humane Society adoption specials helped find loving families for many homeless cats and dogs! During the one week Fall in Love cat adoption promotion, adoption fees for adult and senior cats were reduced to $5 and $75 for kittens.

73 cats and kittens were adopted during this week!

To celebrate October, which is Adopt a Dog Month, a two week promotion ran to encourage community members to ‘Find Your Fido!’ During this promotion, adoption fees were reduced for dogs who had stayed at DCHS for over 30 days, microchips for adopted dogs were half-price, and there were giveaways including a drawing for free dog training classes held at the shelter.

A total of 57 dogs and puppies found new, loving homes in the two weeks!

Two of the dogs who were adopted included senior Rat Terrier mix, Sadie, and hound mix, Mikita. Sadie had been patiently waiting at DCHS for just the right person for over five months. Mikita, who was originally found stray in the Town of Blue Munds, had been waiting at DCHS for nearly six months for just the right family. Both were adopted into loving homes during the two week promotion.
