chances happen every day at the Wisconsin Humane Society Ozaukee Campus. Through expert care and a whole
lot of love and commitment, we find homes for hundreds
of animals each year. There are no time or space
limits; adoptable animals stay in adoption until
they find new homes.
There are many animals waiting at the Ozaukee Campus for loving homes! Since the individual needs of each animal and adopter vary, an Adoption Counselor will work with you one-on-one to help you find the right match for your home. The adoption process generally takes an hour. We recommend that you allow ample time to learn about your new companion. In rare circumstances, out-of-state dog adopters might not be able to take home their new companion animal on the same day of adoption, as special medical records may be needed for transport.

The WHS Ozaukee Campus provides valuable care and treatment for all kinds of animals in need. Last year, we found homes for hundreds of animals. Some of those animals were in need of an extraordinary amount of medical intervention. Our veterinary team works tirelessly to save dogs with life threatening conditions.
Variable adoption pricing allows us to provide top quality care for all animals. Having a higher adoption fee for some animals that will find a home quickly enables us to care for animals in need of lifesaving medical and behavioral intervention. Our variable pricing helps us to provide excellent care for animals who reside in our shelter for a longer stay.
