Most DCHS and Wildlife Center services are by appointment only. If you found a lost animal, need to surrender a pet, found wildlife in need of help, or require another service, please call before coming to the shelter. Adoption visits are handled on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you own a rural or larger suburban parcel of land and would like it to become home to some of the wildlife who have been cared for at Dane County Humane Society's Wildlife Center, please download an application, print and return it to the Wildlife Center office at 5132 Voges Road, Madison, WI. Applications can also be downloaded, filled out, saved and then emailed to wildlife@giveshelter.org.
